Why was the Yang Gang thread bumplocked?
It was evidently bumplocked just a couple days ago, with no prior notice as to why it happened.

What makes someone a "shill" in this case?
I was posting memes. Memes that I found to be funny. I didn't see any rule against ironic accellerationism.

Alright, first I would like to say that I am not the person who saged the Yanggang thread, nor did I participate in that discussion, nor am I the person who has deleted irrelevant yang spam in threads where they were off topic. But I will explain it nevertheless, as I agree with the consensus of the other 4 involved staff members on the subject.

“Yanggang” memes are either leftypol shilling, or are indistinguishable from it. Andrew Yang is a Democrat candidate who supports citizenship for illegal aliens, ‘LGBQ’ rights, ‘Climate Change action,’ ‘Equal Pay,’ The “DREAM’ Act, and a litany of other leftist positions that place him solidly to the left of Bernie Sanders. Basically, he’s a candidate that essentially no one in the user base would support. Discussing any or all of these positions would not necessarily be shilling were there any sincerity. The problem is, there is no discussion. Just spam posting of lazy retreads of old Trump memes, with no new creativity. There is no intent to earnestly discuss the candidate, only an intent to disrupt and annoy. It’s the same shit as is banned in site rules 4 through 7, and it's the spam we wanted to get away from on 4/pol/.

May it be remembered, that it’s not banned sitewide, the thread is simply bumplocked, and posts have been deleted only in instances where it was clearly irrelevant and had no other conceivable purpose than disruption. If we had actually intended to ban the meme entirely, we would have deleted the thread, not bumplocked it.

I just considered it to be like a Nazbol 2.0 kind of irony. I didn't think anyone would be stupid enough to take it seriously, although guess there really are a handful of leftard NEETs who post it unironically.

There's no point in posting memes if nobody ever sees them.

Because I wanted to know why a thread that didn't break any obvious rules got bumplocked without any notice.
I only made a handful of posts to that particular thread, but I was curious to see why it was bumplocked all of a sudden, and if it was due to a site-wide policy decision, or just some janny scrubbing things on a whim.

I'm the OP of that thread. I think the memes are funny and thought it would be fun to share them with /mlpol/ since I think most of you don't ever go back to 4/pol/. Do I think Yang will actually win? No because DNC corp. I do think it would be fun to have him in the debates, which he will be at this point. It's also funny to see his campaign and lefty supporters get upset by memes made to support him. If he were the nominee vs Trump I would actually have to think about it since I am unironically an accelerationist at this point. I find 4/pol/ to be genuinely fun to watch and take part in right now because of these memes.
>>4613
Because I want to share memes with anons and if it's bumplocked then other anons wont see them as often or at all.

Move it to /sp/ or something if you are all actually annoyed by one thread. I don't see the harm in a Yang thread since activity is so low here anyway. /mlpol/ appealed to me originally because it was fun.

This.
Yang has an abysmal chance of winning the primary, and a non-existent chance of ever becoming president. It's not "shilling" because shills, by definition, actually try to accomplish things with their bullshit. This is just making fun of some no-name candidate and the current president with a bunch of ironic memes.
Everyone in the Yang Gang threads are just there to have fun (with maybe a small minority of idiots who think he could ever actually become president).

I don't care, and I don't have time to repeat myself, especially since I am not the mod who bumplocked the thread, and at least 5 people in staff chat have agreed on the subject. If you want an explanation, one has already been given. If you want your virtue signalling I think you've already done it.

Finally, I get to speak to you Mr Yang gang fag about damn time. Sorry I am late to this party been playing the shit out of FFXIV this evening so let’s do this shit. For starters, why total nupol shit, did you pull your memes from the yang gang discord seriously what the fuck. Been following the yang gang shit grow over the different chans, websites, and alike and overall it is some true shit tier garbage. The memes are just bad edits of trump memes, even share blue had better quality and more creativity with their fucking hijacked memes but this is flat out laziness with how shitty they are. The reason the thread was bump locked is it is low quality, nupol trash it is the type of shit that is WHY we left 4pol why would we let it back in here? The yang gang shit is clearly being pushed clearly by either leftypol, or a group of shills why would we accept it here? Why would we open our doors to a clear and present shill and shitpost campaign? I mean If you want low quality, shit tier, share blue class memes and shilling go right ahead here is a link for you http://boards.4chan.org/pol/catalog or even better https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/ they both are filled with yang quality posts. But if you want to remain in a place with quality content, quality discussion, no shills and no bullshit you are welcome to stay yeah it sucks you got your thread bump locked, but it is the death of shit threads that protects and ensures the future and well being of mlpol.net

Have we really regressed to the level of /ptg/ tier namecalling that we're going to dismiss all of the posters we don't agree with as "shills"? I mean, wtf, I've been a regular poster to this board for two straight years now, and now I see posters accusing me of having malicious intentions just because I happen to laugh at some memes about a dumb chink handing out wads of cash?
There are no shills on /mlpol/. No organized entity would bother infiltrating a community this small. The combination of fringe politics and horse porn keep out T_D idiots and tumblrtards alike. The closest thing we have to that is zald, but he's not even a shill, he's just a shitposter with nothing better to do.
Shills have ulterior motives to push their bullshit; that's what makes them shills. I just like this meme because it makes me laugh and I get to meme about political accellerationism.

That's the point. It's like Nazbol. Only a fool would take it seriously, but it's still funny.
And who's concern is it to judge the quality of a thread that people are still posting in? If people weren't posting to it, it wouldn't have needed to be bumplocked, because it would slide on its own.

Yes and Nazbol was/is a colossal pile of shit and always has been one it is easily one of the lowest tier memes of nupol. Here at mlpol.net we take pride in our content, our memes, our posts, and our board, yes there is more regulation and some threads must die but they are worth it to protect the board and site from becoming 4pol part 2 let's fuck over the white race too! Yeah the rules suck yeah it isn't fun but it is better to have some regulations in place to protect our site and our quality than to be filled to the brim with shit like 4pol is. It is WHY we exist is we wanted to leave 4chan's "well it is a post and doesn't have ponies so it is good" philosophy and to have a place where quality posting, solid moderation, and discussion about politics and ponies would exist and THRIVE! As I stated earlier if you want shit tier memes, shills, and low quality posts 4chan is just a click away.

just came back to the site after a very long absence, and it's very disappointing to see this. the angry, knee-jerk reactions so many newfags have to things like NazBol and Yang Gang shitposting is pretty frustrating to see. facetious shitposting has always been an integral part of /pol/. generally, the people who have a negative reaction to it are newer posters who think the spirit of /pol/ is SOOPA SRS POLLYTICKS, and don't understand board culture well enough to pick up on the nuance of a lot of post-ironic maymays. as other posters have clearly pointed out, the intention of the images are pretty clear.

sad to see this community has fallen into the same trap. can't expect more from a community primarily comprised of people who had never posted on /pol/ before the merger, i guess.

Memes like Nazbol and Yang Gang are just kind of ironic humor that you only find on /pol/. To dismiss it as "shilling", when those ideologies have 0.0000000000000001% chance of actually becoming relevant anywhere is just shortsighted. Even if you think the meme is annoying, it's not hurting anyone.
