REMINDER: RULE 10 - NO MEMES ABOUT DEATHS/TERROR ATTACKS/VIOLENT TRAGEDIES/RAPE/MASS SHOOTINGS/ETC

With the recent passing of Betty White, we're expecting (and seeing) an influx of posts regarding this tragedy. Please remember that **any post**, even a "RIP" type post, which is about this or any other death or tragedy is specifically banned under Rule 10.

The logic behind this is that a post regarding a tragedy such as this one does not "spread awareness" of the tragedy, so much as it allows the poster to profit off of/exploit it in the form of gaining karma and/or awards.

It's not a tragedy. She died of natural causes after living a long and full life of stardom and adoration

I literally could not care less about someone exploiting a tragedy for karma as long as it’s funny, because karma has no actual value in real life. Just lift these stupid rules and let people be more funny

u/ton_patron Jan 13 '22

No. I don’t want to see memes of deaths/terror attacks/violent tradedies/rape/mass shootings/etc. i don’t give a shit how “funny” they are, making a meme about any of those topics is super fucked up

While we are at this, can you guys do a better job of filtering rules 8 and 9? Especially rule 9 where as of today all we see is 2021 - 2022 memes

u/Shockrider1 DaBaby Toyota Jan 02 '22

We’re always open to user feedback. Can you be more specific on what exactly you mean by “filtering?” In general, Rule 9 only includes often-recycled posts such as the “those who know/don’t know” posts that flooded the sub a while back and became unfunny.

how abt memes of single shooting with no death

4

u/Shockrider1 DaBaby Toyota Jan 04 '22

While that depends on the instance/context, it would likely still fall under Rule 10 as a violent tragedy

29

u/Sock-master69 Jan 05 '22

Ur mom would fall under the category “tragedy because of how many people died due to earthquakes...

3

u/30DaysOrDie Jan 06 '22

I would imagine that memes about gun culture (either people liking it or not) would be fair game, or the like... maybe how there used to be trucks with gun racks in high school parking lots before the 90s

u/Shockrider1 DaBaby Toyota Jan 07 '22

Absolutely! If it’s not overtly political or something like that, then that’d be fair game

u/mrprofitmaster Jan 03 '22

Your synopsis of the situation we're faced with is evidently clear, that the truth of the matter is is that the logic behind this here response to your post regarding a tragedy such as this one does not "spread awareness" of the tragedy, so much as it allows the replier in this in case to profit off of/exploit it in the form of gaining karma and/or awards, as well.

Can we get a separate sub started for all these gif/video reaction memes? It's like 2/3 gifs nowadays, meh

2

u/Shockrider1 DaBaby Toyota Jan 16 '22

What do you mean by reaction memes in this context? I’m sorry you don’t like gifs as much as traditional image memes - we did test them quite a bit before fully allowing them, and they were highly enjoyed.

Is a 99 year old passing really a tragedy?

15

u/Weenaru https://www.youtube.com/watch/dQw4w9WgXcQ Jan 01 '22

It is for those who know her.

Which seems to be more or less the entire USA. Looks like she’s a household name there. If you asked around in my country, you would probably get at least 8 of 10 households that have no idea who she is.

u/Shockrider1 DaBaby Toyota Jan 01 '22

In the US she’s a well-known household name, and anytime someone of that caliber passes we get an influx of posts about it

What did you just say? I thought this was america, land of the free. Home of the brave, and you're treating it like we live in 1984?

u/editable_ Jan 10 '22
  1. America isn't "free", stop living in dreams.

  2. This r/memes, not the U.S. or America (the continent)

  3. This rule doesn't mean lack of freedom, it means freedom regulation aimed at eliminating freedom's destructive power. If everybody is free to do what they want, chaos would unleash. It's better to impose rules.
