Thank you so much! But, but,...you didn't mention my hilarious & thought provoking memes!!! LOL!

I love this, perfectly stated I so agree!

@CaroleKay I was going to say that!

Great minds.❤️

I treat them much like every other post I'm not particularly enamored with. I just keep on scrolling. Besides, since he started calling them "intermissions", I don't even look at them.

KKGator Level 9 Dec 28, 2018

There you go! People don't understand they have choices?

@SukiSue exactly ! U see the top line , not your cup of tea , LET IT GO !!!!

I’m fine with it. Yes I believe if somebody doesn’t like it they can scroll and roll. Also, it’s up to the group host to decide what content belongs here or not. Not anybody else.

CaroleKay Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

I'm just one of the Mods here, Eric is the Host. But I would have to report if someone else posted "porn", so I make sure I never cross that line. I don't even come close. I keep mine on the "Maxim" level, not "Hustler", & usually keep them to a minimum. I went crazy yesterday in response to getting one of my "Intermissions..." arbitrarily "disappeared" with no warning or explanation.
Not that I want anyone to leave (well, not most!) but there are other Meme Groups one can join on the Site to guarantee you will never see a human body, or at least not an attractive one that is proud of it! All kitty cats! & I don't even consider my posts, at least my Intermissions, in Bad Taste in any way, tho I occasionally post a Meme that is. But I'm not known for that. I've strived to keep things upbeat here, & it seems, no matter what some would say, that most agree with that!

If people don't want to see them, then don't look and scroll on. That is your choice. I like to post intermissions myself at times and if one doesn't like it, just move on. It's really that simple. There are some things on here I don't care for either but I don't make a big deal of it. We are all adults here or should be and if Admin thinks someone has overstepped boundaries, they will let you know. No reason for unneeded reporting. Let's be decent with each other here. This is a fun group to let out our wild, twisted, dark side all within reason like Eric has stated.

I'm considering doing some equal time and showing some hot men with nice packages.

Kojaksmom Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

@mistymoon77 did one, & it got pulled...& not by me. I, obviously, have no problem with an occasional "Intermission...", tho that is most assuredly not what we want the majority of the posts. With me, I just got to the point where I dropped a bunch of memes at one time, 8 - 10, rather than spread them out, so I used one "Intermission..." at the half-way point for, well, an intermission! They started "disappearing" with no explanation. & I always kept them clean for here (believe me, I could get raunchy!).
As some of you may have figured out, I tend to fight back. I'd then post multiples, & move on. I just got to the point this last time of arbitrary, unexplained disappearances, to go nuclear.
Now, I could make an argument that these photos are still memes, any bit of information has that potential, but I won't. They were just a change of scenery before I dropped the 2nd half of my meme posts. My point is the "grab", with no explanation, no reason, & no communication.
One can always go to @RavenCT's meme Group, I'm sure she won't allow this kind of tomfoolery, but I thought we had adults here, & that if somebody had a major problem they could speak up. Disagreeing with me will not get one booted from the Group. (Hell, I enjoy it!) Now, that doesn't guarantee things will always go one's way. Certain things can trigger an individual & still be a righteous post, one person's treasure is another person's trash, quite often, but all are free to make comments, suggestions or complaints, here or one can PM me. I don't bite...hard!
So, to bring it back to you ('cause that was NOT directed at you at all), if you want to post a guy at times, & can keep it "clean", go for it. I sure won't be the one that gets it pulled! NO PORN tho! I know how you are! LOL!

I say let people be. Overreactors are the bane of society. Does it break the site rules? No? Then move on.

Not offended in the least. But I do understand that some people join to see funny memes. While we all share our Athiest/Agnostic non-belief, we still have varying degrees of what is moral. I wouldn’t want to offend anyone so much that they don’t return to our site. On the other hand...we don’t need people here who are always causing trouble. IMO, Extremely prudish people don’t belong here and most likely would not join. Is my answer vague enough?

If they are offensive to someone, they need to get exposed to real life. If the are offended by Bill's posts and have not spoken with him, why not? Bill has always been open and responsive.

glennlab Level 9 Dec 28, 2018

Thanks, Glenn!

Ii have no problem with Meme's group, or what Bill post, If there was something then I would talk to Bill about it. Or pass it up.

No really one time or another everyone will overreact to something, some more than others, I don't believe there is anything wrong to saying you don't like something, I think it's best to take it to the person, and let them know why. Running to the Senate and Admin. Banning and blocking, I don't believe it's good for the site as a whole.
but like what happened a few days ago with some posting in this group, That Bill had to deal with. He handle it really well.

kenriley Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

Thanks, bro! & yes, talk, don't block or report behind someone's back just because it's not something that one personally wouldn't post. Let's leave that for Ron's posts, okay?!? LMAO!

I missed it but I like this post. ?

@CaroleKay You really didn't miss much.

It ain't my peace I'm holding when I look at them intermission posts

I don't like them but as long as they're labeled I just skip them.

Paracosm Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

As is your right. I do promise, tho, they will not be "crude" or too explicit. This Group has standards, well,...I do!!!

Long live the "intermission".
Fuck em if they can't take a joke.

dartagnan6666 Level 7 Dec 28, 2018

I may have backed off if I saw an abundance of negative feedback here. After all, it is a Group. But, I haven't seen that, & all are welcome to comment on this. I will never block anyone for just disagreeing with me! So, when I do my multiple-post posts, they will continue. Whether I will "bomb" again for disappearances, I can't say! Thanks for your support!

Hi all! I'm the other moderator here and I don't mind Bill's intermission posts one bit! Live and let live! We are all different here and some things might be offensive to others but yet again we are adults and should just respect one another and just scroll on. Bill has been very respectful to me and has never stepped out of bounds with me! I enjoy being his partner here in the group! So maybe I will step in with intermission for us ladies! Lol

MichelleGar1 Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

& I didn't even pay her for this!

@phxbillcee LMAO!!! No you didn't but a donation of some beer would be greatly appreciated!

They’re not offensive

They’re not shameful

They’re not memes

Science-guy Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

They are an Intermission between memes, (tho I could make an argument that they are, indeed, a form of meme)

For example, I reply to posts with music videos often, are those then memes? I say yes, therefore...

3

I don’t have a problem with them except they aren’t memes. So it’s only my need for things to be in the right category. Hey, much more tasteful than the FLOTUS pics.

LauraUU Level 6 Dec 28, 2018

The category here is very broad. We even allow the occasional "Normie" post, so, as you can see, we're very open-minded!!!

I like all Bills intermission posts some of yours are a bit iffy though. ?

Thank you @Captnron59 for posting this and allowing an open discussion on this topic! This was a great idea!

MichelleGar1 Level 8 Dec 28, 2018

YW... I don't think as many people had an opinion as I thought would... I think anyone against it just didn't speak up after seeing the positive comments.

@Captnron59 either way it did put out the discussion, helped most of us form an opinion so we can move forward and start having fun again!

I, or the Group, have been accused of misandry here, & I have to state I am not prejudiced against men, I am one, & I don't think the Group is. Tho, admittedly, some can be pigs! Now, does the Group at times post misogynistic memes...yep, & they often get called out! Do I think my "Intermissions..." are misogynistic? Absolutely not! I'll admit I have a bias towards a preference for looking at the female form, over the male form, but gee, excuse me for being a hetero male! Do I at all stop any women from posting memes or the occasional photo of "hunky" men? No. I won't be gazing at them as I do with female ones, but I find that normal for me. The individual can do as they please! We don't do porn here. & there would not have been the "raft" of my "Intermission..." posts without the interference on my "one-out-of-eleven" photo of a young lady!
As to the "Do a count..." comment, that exact thing was the subject of a previous "pinned" Post of mine on those "looking without liking", so that argument is specious as it tells us literally nothing.
The comments here seem to be, if not positive towards the "Intermissions...", at least neutral, or wanting equal time for male ones! (I won't be doing those ladies, you'll have to supply your own!) I do agree they should be a very small minority of the posts, this is a Meme Group, after all (tho I can make an argument that many stand-alone photos can be considered memes), so that is why we're here, but a few "Intermissions..." can't hurt.
Also, as an addendum on this, out of the 6 "like" hits this did get, all were "thumbs up", & 3 were from women! So this is not a "gender" issue, as implied, it's a prude issue, & the busy-body type that can't live & let live & just scroll by! Or, speak up in the Group! (& btw, that won't ever get you Blocked from here. Abuse, spam & not following the Community Guidelines, or, the Blocking of the Host or Mods.) Not agreeing with a Mod is most assuredly allowed, tho, how one could disagree with the very reasonable Michelle, or the (I've been told) most excellent Bill, is "inconceivable"!!! LOL!

phxbillcee Level 9 Dec 28, 2018

Strange that there are 19 comments and 6 reactions, considering the input. Can you see total visitors? I can only see 9

@Captnron59 I see 54 as of now.

@phxbillcee Yup I'm so fascinated I came back to watch.
I actually had members complain to me (remember the one who just left in spectacular fashion?). That one made folks leave here.
It's why I chased Eric and spoke to him about installing really tolerant mods.. (Not me ). See that? Wisdom.

I don't mind the pretty pictures.

Doraz Level 7 Dec 28, 2018

Beauty is always a good thing!

Do a count later on how many visited the post. And didn't like or comment.

It's great you are communicating but obviously there's a discrepancy. There are a ton of members not chiming in. That's why I suggested a poll. Anonymous.

Also to be clear - it's not me who cares. I left here when the misandry started.

The "me too movement" applies to a ton of people - not all women - so when I'm reminded of the guys I worked with in the 1980's? I'll speak up.
Not speaking up? Not my thing.

There are better ways for him to cope with E.D.

He may never be a Gentleman, but he can get professional help!

mzee Level 7 Dec 28, 2018

So, that's my supposed "problem"?!? Gee, thanks, doc! & I see you do classes in decorum, too! What an absolutely talented fella you are!

& may also take this time to thank you for the incredible contribution you've made to this Group! We couldn't have done it without you! Kudos!

You've been too busy harassing the Canadians. ...?

@SukiSue I don't harass the Canadians. Dunno.
