What was General Custer's last words?
I dunno but....
At the TDPRI a political post is any post that directly or indirectly encourages discussion of politics, politicians, political parties, political media outlets, or government public policies.
ANY POST CONTAINING A POLITICIAN BY NAME OR IN AM IMAGE -- EVEN AS A JOKE -- WILL BE REMOVED AS A POLITICAL POST.
Give me a couple more days and I think I can get it done!
You are fast
If a Custer fell on the prairie and nobody heard him (except the Sioux and Cheyenne, of course)...would he make a sound?
Well since sound is created in the brain from electric signals sent from a vibrating ear drum and if the Arapaho, Sioux and Cheyenne had good hearing then yes.
I think what you think is the opposite of what he thinks is actually the same think.
Your "gullible people" who "see quotes/ believe/ are informed" is the same as his "gather people into various ideologies that have real world consequences".
Of course two can look at one and not see one as one but see two.
If Clint Eastwood actually said all of the ones in the seemingly thousands of him, he’d never have the time to make a movie.
And too, there's the trickly problem of what people meme whey they say mean.*
And, there's also this. Which I have virtually no idea about, but I'd value* other's input...

This is just data corruption in the simulation.
Someone didnt check the box for error checking. Probably just running the sim to see the effect. A crash is probably about to hap-
That was an interesting read about v-memes.....??
My definition of a meme as pertains to FB would be something like this...
a short declaration that serves to reinforce or symbolize a larger narrative or ideology. The purpose of a meme is to create a gathering point around which people who want to be seen as embodying the values inherent in the larger narrative can be identified as belonging to that group, otherwise known as 'virtue signaling'.
That's very much off the top of my head...it hits the main points for me I suppose. I think of memes as the updated version of the role bumper stickers once played...non-sensical drivel phrased as truisms such as 'you're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem'...which was a popular bumper sticker at one time.
I read a chunk of that and so far find seemingly meaningless passages, yet re-became aware of the fact that memes have been around longer than social media, which means social medias' adoption and JonBenet Ramseying of the established social culture exchange language is not what memes means.
Or not what memes mean.
Hell I don't even know the grammatical terms defining the difference between "memes mean" and "memes means" but I know those have different meanings!
Hmmm, I'm not sure virtue signalling is a meme component, any more than it can be added if that's the purpose in the specific meme?
I mean memes can also be dirt bad signalling like locker room smearing of women, or other kinds of hate speech that are not specifically for the purpose of showing how honorable the hate speaker is.
Pretty sure society has hate memes?
I'm a bit confused about virtue signalling too though.
For example is noting the existence of hate memes considered virtue signalling?
Or would I have to claim that I explained hate memes in a locker room to be virtue signalling?
I debated whether to use the term virtue signaling or value signaling....I went with virtue because it was is an established term but I think now that value is more what I meant. Values of course don't have to be positive in nature as in your locker room example. A virtue is of course a positive trait in someone.
As I had stated I narrowed the context of my definition strictly to FB. My intent was to convey that we virtue signal by what memes we 'like' or repost regardless of whether any virtue is overtly stated within the meme itself. Substituting the word value for virtue makes much more sense however.
All that aside I think a strong argument could be made that most anything we engage in whether through speech, writing, movement, musical preferences, clothing, hairstyle, etc. will be a statement to some degree of what we value. It would be pretty hard, if not impossible, to not communicate what some of our fundamental values are to an astute observer.
You mean Kermit the Frog never said all of these words of wisdom that I see on Facebook all of the time?
It's too bad that kind of crap is happening. Just proves you can't believe everything you read.
