I will ask one simple question; if you will not justify the post as a meme in any way or give a definition of 'meme', how is any moderator meant to viably enforce the one rule in the sidebar? Or is the fact that you 'don't answer to me' (you don't and don't need to) meant to mean that I should simply allow all posts to stand that violate this rule and re-establish this as a general content subraddle, otherwise facing demodding?

I could put any political opinion I want on a relevant image with impact text (like that shitty whisper app made specifically to do that) but that doesn't immediately qualify it as a meme.

I didn't find that one to be a meme. If I cared to censor you, I would have deleted plenty of others- which I disagree with to a further extent. That specific one looked to me to just be you expressing an opinion through impact text with not even a vague attempt at humor under it.

They deleted an anti-transhumanist meme I made that they apparently didn't find funny

The definition of 'funny' is objectively subjective (funny term) and it is not anything I could describe as a meme other than 'has impact text'. If that's the only requirement, I could post any political statement in the form of an image with impact text and claim it met the requirements.

In the comment, I literally asked for you to explain why I shouldn't delete it, waited over a day, then deleted it.

adds nothing to the convo and is antagonistic' (on a fucking meme forum)

That doesn't mean you should be overly antagonistic without any provocation within the thread whatsoever, in a reply to... your own comment. However- I should not have deleted the comment. I will refrain from deleting similar cases in the future.

oh yeah ive put basic reading into most things but if you tell me to read the book of, say, Lenin, ill tell you to eat my ass because ill never take leninism into consideration

at least reading the fuckin wikipedia page is important but reading entire books is a waste of time

This adds nothing and is antagonistic itself. Would like to delete but always give a grace period for someone to call me a fucking moron and explain why I shouldn't. Also, the site used for this post fuckin' sucks.

The gas attack was actually rather legitimate; the rebels were holded up in an urban stronghold that would be nearly impossible to crack without just turning it to rubble. The losses strikes would bring are negligible to retaking the entirety of the city.

Ignoring the rest of the slaughter and the FSA's many, many crimes that outnumber even the fascist Assad's crimes, however, is entirely bullshit and I agree with you there.

Chemical weapons are generally useful when you have an opponent already entrenched, and can outweigh any negatives.
