Hello fellow funnyjunkers. I recently joined this site (about a month ago) and im starting to get accustom to the way things work around here. I keep seeing all this stuff about reposts and people taking stuff from other websites. I understand where the problem with reposting other peoples content off this website comes from. But I am extremely confused as to why people get so pissed when we take stuff from 9gag in particular.
I don’t understand for one: how, if 9gag is suppose to be a terrible site and nobody from here ever goes on it, how the hell do we know stuff got reposted from there to here? And two: lets face it, this is the internet. People repost things because they think it’s funny and want to show others. If the posters of this cant take the time to give credit where credit is due, then they are total assholes. But that’s not the point.
The point is this. Stop bitching about stuff being from other sites. Its taken from them because OP wanted to share a laugh. And its going to be retaken 5 other times to 5 other websites. Everytime I see stuff like this, I think of SOPA. That’s right. Remember that law that everyone hated with a passion? Well, guess what the internet, the place that is all about sharing things over and over again. Is complaining about? That’s right. The EXACT SAME THING as what SOPA was trying to stop. So basically, everyone’s a hypocrite.
If you’ve read this far, thanks for the time. I appreciate it. OH! Also. Do what ever you want about this, hate it, love it, report it, sue me, call me the dirties, ugliest thing you can if you so please. Let the post be showered with the red of thumbs down. I could care less. I just felt the need to voice my opinion on the internet. HA! Good one! I know!
