For the mods and others who don't understand memes -

this is not applauding terrorism, this is a picture of the European Union applauding it. I didn't make the meme it's a popular meme floating around the internet.


[Moderators note: We understand memes, but how they have been used in this circumstance is in direct violation of site rules. These are not funny or humorous, they are hateful and inflammatory. As such, all images that violate the site policy have been removed. You may not have made it, but you chose to share it and are therefore responsible for it's content in this context.]

If you have to explain it... it's probably not funny.

Respect for whom? Do you think this is a joke? I'm not joking...

Here's another one...remember this one?

First off. I'm not replying as a Mod, so don't get your knickers in a twist.
I'm a Londoner in London right now. This is terrible. Take your crappy humour somewhere else.
We have a word for your type here. Muppet.

I feel for you I really do. The meme is not always about humor, it is about using a picture to make an argument or a statement -

this is my last one for awhile, I promise, and the most relevant -

Topic has been locked while this is dealt with. This is wildly inappropriate and not the time or place for this disgusting jeering and victim shaming/blaming.

The offending images have been removed. The user that posted them, Foibleson, has been banned for repeated violation of the forum rules of use. There is always room for debate on Playdip, but there is no room for intentionally inflammatory and hateful images and speech.

Well done for taking action swiftly.

As a Londoner myself (albeit one that now lives in Glasgow), last nights actions are truly shocking. Actually scrap that - it doesn't matter where I am from; Manchester was truly shocking as is any other deplorable act anywhere else in the world. While the original post was probably trying to make some 'point', it was clearly not the time or place. My thoughts go out to all those involved and hope everyone is doing ok. Peace and Love.

Does this only apply to the forum or the Play Diplomacy site entirely? (3 games in progress)

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.
