Why do Anglos love shitposting so much?

We invented imageboards for the sole reason of anime and shitposting to get away from Goons.

Librechan/jp's shitposting is actually pretty boring.

Memes are around since forever. He was the one who recognized and named the concept.

Calling memes memes is, itself, a meme.

When does a meme born? With it's first use or when other people start to use it?

Bernd 04/21/2017 (Fri) 09:16:55 [Preview] No. 5637 del
I would say that with its first use. Even if it doesn't proliferate at all – would one also argue that a person is not a person until it has reproduced successfully?

All old memes come back in circulation when they're long forgotten, I've seen people posting suiseiseki on several boards

Your example doesn't fit.
Definition of meme:
>an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture
So to accept something as a meme it needs to spread first. If someone is quietly sitting on an idea then it won't become a meme. And the "within a culture" part suggest the spreading on a wider scale. Maybe even at the first few transmission it shouldn't count as a meme.
Well, maybe if that particular culture is small enough like a subculture with only two members then even the first "infection" could give birth to a meme.

The US since its foundation has been an abominable cavalcade of ethnicity and cultures. Since its inception the idea of what it means to be an American has not been a unified thought or ideal.

I guess transmission certainly is part of the definition of meme:
>Any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another in a comparable way to the transmission of genes.
However, the whole point of genes is the fact that they can replicate faithfully, which is what makes genetic material so special and important in terms of molecular science. But mutations are mutations regardless of whether they reproduce successfully too.

I guess meme must be known within group, or spread fast to became known, otherwise you can call anything a meme.

Meme must be recognizable so memeber of a group will get some association in his mind when he'll see it. If piece of information means nothing to receiver, it can't be a meme.

I swear this was not intentional.

For additional input: me and my brother have a shitload of memes that only the two of us get. We have almost every situation covered; no matter what happens we can always come up with two or three different memetic responses.

Banter/shitposting is the true heritage of Ancient Greece and Rome and the Anglosphere has inherited that same indomitable spirit.

What would you call that? Is that just called an acrostic? or a super acrostic?
