This is a fine piece of well-articulated argumentation. It's a wonderful change of pace from the usual drivel complaining about "cancer" and "faggotry," I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A simple "because **** you that's why!" would have sufficed...

Though I agree with his statements I did like all the references in Borderlands 2, mainly because, at least for me, it was a reference hunt, I loved finding these things. I didn't much care for what it was just some reference so I in my mind could go "Ha found another one"

I should show this to my friends who keep improperly using memes and describing 4chan as "silly."

Whaaaa! Whaaaa! I used to think this was funny, but now it's too popular, so it isn't funny anymore!

QQ bro. Grow up.

You know what, **** it
I was gonna explain it, but I don't feel like it.
If you're telling someone on a ******* humor site to grow up, go sit in a corner and think about your life, because you're obviously doing it wrong.

With all of the ragefaces in the background, and the title of the video, I stared at it for a good minute trying to figure out if this was an actual video or a picture to troll us.

ITT: FJ and FJ only inside jokes, jokes that were spawned on this site and have not spawned to other places, do we have any?

But that is gone through the entire web.

I've been thinking exactly this for a while now.

I think the whole "currency" system is what has ruined funnyjunk. If they continued to let the top thumbed posts reach FP but at the same time didnt give the poster any collection of thumbs it would weed out the thumb whores in a second. That is partially why I had an old account for years with a lot of thumbs and deleted it.
#34 to #33 - sloot (03/01/2013) [-]
the guy in the video made a better point than I am right now. It should be about the content and people shouldn't care about getting notoriety for their posts. I was suggesting that the actual posts themselves receive thumbs but users do not collect thumbs and go up in rank. It is a game to the thumbwhores about posting many reposts and collecting as thumbs and going up in rank. When I used to make comics for this site I could care less about the rank and thumbs I just liked to see people reading my work and seeing what they had to say about it...

this explains well why memes are cancerous

The irony is this also works in reverse. People like to feel like the belong, but they also like to feel like they're above the unwashed masses. The video maker is giving me the vibe of someone who's mad that his super secret inside jokes are now publicly used.

There is something to be said about forced memes though. Forced memes are the bane of comedy everywhere.
