While elitism has been a staple element of online communities since the days of Usenet newsgroups, such disdain for the promulgation of meme culture can be seen as a countermovement to the growing influence of social media in the Internet culture which began in the late s.
Moving forward, we will not be allowing direct image posts or memes on this subreddit. This decision reflects our personal views as moderators and the views of many members of the community who expressed their opinions today and in the past. Our vision for this subreddit is to be a hub for general discussion about books, and image posts make that a difficult standard to meet.
It takes a very minimal amount of time for image posts to gain upvotes, since they are easy for users to consume and vote upon. This has made it difficult for discussion threads to make it to the front page for a long time, since images rise much more quickly.
Banning them will hopefully promote more discussion based posts to make it to the front page. Banning memes was an easy call to make. In a community based around books, it would be duplicitous behavior to on one hand promote provocative discussion, while on the other hand allow for low-brow, easy to digest image macros.
This was also an easy decision to make because it was expressed vehemently by a lot of comments in today's thread, and in many threads in the past. An important distinction that I wish to express is that we will still allow for image based posts, however they will have to be posted in self-posts.
They will also have to include elaboration, and will be deleted if they do not promote discussion. Many users have asked us to make this sub self-post only, and we have discussed that as a good possibility.
However, that would be analogous to treating this issue with a hammer. Our approach is treating it with a scalpel. Articles, reviews, interviews, and many other link posts are very supportive of discussion, and if you look at our front page on a regular basis, you will see that links like these make up a large amount of the upvoted content.
We have seen a lot of people voice concern about the future of this subreddit.
