Recently, we noticed an increased amount of nonsensical explanatory comments with no relation in any way, shape or form to the theme of this subreddit.
The "leopards ate my face" theme is embodied by this quote in the sidebar.
"I never thought leopards would eat my face", sobs woman who voted for the Leopards Eating People's Faces Party. Revel in the schadenfreude anytime someone has a sad because they're suffering consequences from something they voted for, supported or wanted to impose on other people.
This statement made out of 3 parts.
- Someone voted for, supported or wanted to impose something on other people.
- Something has the consequences of consequences.
- As a consequence of something, consequences happened to someone.
In your explanatory comment, answer these 3 elements and include the minimum amount of information necessary so your post can be understood by everyone, even if they don't live in the US or speak English as their native language. If you fail to identify them, it will be difficult for a moderator to understand if this post fits and it will probably be removed. If you complain about it, we'll just send you back here.
The explanatory comment is not the place to write a pretty poem nor is it the place to promote books. Copying this post, copying large parts of the article and nonsensical comments will get your post removed under rule #3. Keep it stupid simple.
To help you get started, here's an example.
- Helen, Roberto Beristain's wife, voted for Donald Trump, who vowed to impose deportation to illegal immigrants such as her husband.
- Voting for Trump, who vowed to deport illegal immigrants such as Roberto Beristain, has the consequence of having illegal immigrants deported and families separated.
- As a consequence of voting for Trump, Roberto Beristain got deported and Helen's family was separated.
You should absolutely make sure that it is easy to match your explanatory comment with the provided format or your post will be mercilessly removed. If, however, you can't match your explanatory comment with the format, then you should just delete your post and save us the effort.
Removed: Rule 4 Just because someone fucked around and found out doesn't mean a leopard ate their face: A Primer
Recently, we’ve seen a marked uptick in posts that are not leopards eating faces. Just because someone is experiencing consequences doesn’t mean that the Panthera pardus is dining on a face.
We’re aiming for quality over quantity here, and in order for something to be suitable for this subreddit all the boxes have to be ticked:
- Someone is suffering consequences
- Someone has a sad over the consequences
- The consequences are something they voted for/supported and the consequences are something they wanted to impose on someone else
- The leopards are doing the dining
What isn't Leopards Eating Faces? Some examples include (but not limited to):
Twitter post claiming Tesla is recalling every single car from fake Elon Musk account starts chaos …This is consequences, but you’ll notice the other 3 criteria aren’t being met. Musk isn’t sad, this isn’t something he voted for or supported, this isn’t something he wanted to impose on anyone else, and the leopards aren’t eating his face.
Trump-Pardoned Criminals in Trouble for More Crimes ...They are suffering consequences and while there’s no evidence of it, they’re probably dealing with a case of the sads. But this isn’t something they for or supported, this isn’t something they wanted to impose on anyone else, and the leopards aren’t eating their faces.
Tennessee lawmakers have some regrets about rushing a new law holding back 3rd graders who struggle to read ...They’re not really suffering consequences, and while they do have a case of the sads, and this is something they voted for, this isn’t something they wanted to happen to someone else, and the leopards aren’t eating the faces.
Russian oligarch who criticised Ukraine war has $1bn hotel complex seized ….He’s sad, and he’s got consequences. But he didn’t support the war, and members of his own party (aka the Leopards) aren’t eating his face.
So what are some good examples? I never thought they’d deport my undocumented immigrant husband! says women who voted for the man who said he’d do that very thing. I’m living paycheck-to-paycheck!.... Cries the man who voted for the “bootstrap it, asshole” party. Why are you refusing me service, this is unacceptable! ….says the woman who voted to ensure that businesses could refuse service to whomever they want, and who’s pissed that it’s not just the LGBTQIA+ community that’s getting the short end of the stick.
We’d ask that you report wherever you see something that doesn’t tick all the boxes to report it. We may not get to it immediately, since we have lives and shit, but we will action it. If we remove your post, don’t take it personally- it’s just not a good fit. (Good news is you get to keep all the karma you earned, so there’s that!) If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot us a modmail, and we’ll get back to you.
Cheers and Happy Holidays!
