Dude, deadpooling the entry is the biggest mistake.
It’s like saying in front of so many people, “X is a douche!”
And then some time later the douche becomes your boss.
Going to sound like humiliation.
And one does not simply put shit fountains anywhere.

Was it this you tried to deadpool?

No, it was this: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-cheezburger-network.

I’m still standing by my point. The Cheezburger network is not a meme, and you cannot argue against that. And it is also not a memetic hub, considering it is an entire network of sites and there would be few that spread beyond its boundaries. Finally, this is not in any way ironic. It’s like saying a man is not a chimpanzee, and then 10 months later he becomes your boss. He’s still not a chimpanzee, and he will not be angry with you for doubting his chimpanzee-ness.

Nukehumvee, I’ve added you as an editor to the entry, if you think you can somehow prove that it is a memetic hub.

As you know there can be any number of reasons an entry gets deadpooled. Some really good memes get deadpooled just because of bad writing, etc. So I do see the point you are making but I don’t see it that way. I think they are right to have deadpooled it and you really didn’t need to open a new thread about it. You already said the same thing in the http://knowyourmeme.com/forums/general/topics/9032-know-your-meme-3s-cheezburgers thread. That’s why the shit fountain and I was waiting for the shitstorm to hit next.

The Cheezburger Network is a collection of blogs and sites that post and feature memetic things. For example, I Can Haz Cheezburger? posts Lolcat images and videos, and Failblog posts Fail images and videos. Neither of these sites actively create memes, unlike sites like 4chan or Tumblr. These sites are memetic hubs because users can freely post content, and are encouraged to create and popularize material that may be or become memetic. Ergo, an entry for Cheezburger would be like an entry for KYM: sure, there are memes there, but they aren’t created there, only documented, and possibly popularized.

tl;dr I agree with Horseeater said.

I also agree with Horseeater on that case.
Being bought by Cheezburger doesn’t make them having privileges over KYM’s way of analyzing entries.
Otherwise, it will eventually give a reliable and strong reason for haters to hate KYM even more.

INb4 LOCK

I want this thread to be locked because the entry for the Cheezburger has been undeadpooled, and it’s unrelated to the shitstorm that’s gonna happen, I deserve it anyway for trying to fight the majority.

Nuke, don’t let it get to you. This happened 2 weeks ago actually. Some newfag comes in, makes a thread, wants thread closed, then no one let thread die and OP goes insane. You should lurk some more and understand our confusing, and primitive ways. You must become one of us through rites of passage, and then confront us. And if we do anything except for brutally maim you within an inch of your life but not kill you, and you live…. You shall be one of us!

The Monolith is KYM… Don’t touch it. Only WORSHIP IT!!!

I would just like to say that this was the only post in thtis thread that made any sense whatsoever (although I did like the IMPRENETRABLE stuff, and hope to see it appear in future threads as a new KYM-local meme).
