Does this site have a slight bias to it?

This site itself would not become a meme due to the fact that we do not create memes. We catalog them. Unless we started get tons of memes out there, then maybe a bit, but I’m sure that the moderators would still research the spread that it caused.

But like I said, this site can’t become one.

I have no idea what you’re talking about, so here’s a picture of a Japanese guy being Hitler

I suppose if it were to become a meme, then it should be recorded here. But that’s a really big “if”.
I don’t think it would be biased, though.

Obviously it does look at all these great memes that got deadpool’d

Depends on who writes it I guess, but yeah I’d think they would be bias in favor of KYM.

Hopefully if this meme exists, it will be about gore, and porno.

I hope every meme is about gore and porno :o

This kind of reminds me of the old paradox- ‘If there was a set which contained all sets, would/could it contain itself?’.
BUT-
KYM can have an article about KYM, and it wouldn’t be a conundrum, just a redundancy, because sites can indeed have pages about sites…

…I digress…
I think it is interesting to note that ‘site pages’ like Nico Nico Douga, 4chan, Cleverbot, etc are all still submissions, not confirmed memes. That’s not at all wierd though, because a meme is the picture/video/phrase(/song/gif/pony…) that’s spread THROUGH the sites. KYM is NOT a meme, but rather a beautiful place where all memes go, good or bad.

In summation… No, it wouldn’t be biased to make KYM a meme, it’d be stupid.
