    I'm quite split on this, I dislike the idea behind it (its no better than Funnyjunk etc) and it is just reusing old stuff that was funny years ago. However some of the (rare) original content that gets posted on there can be pretty funny.

    Like any other site it has its funny moments, but in general it's either just captioned images and rage-comics, which is a dead concept now.

    Better than Funnyjunk, though.

    Edited:

    It's true, though.
    Which is one of the exceptions I add to the site, because when it puts out things you can relate to and go "Oh, I do that/Oh, I agree" then it's okay.

    I think it's fine, just everyone on school is basically just staring at 9gag with their phones/ipods during breaks. Makes it kinda boring.

    That watermark proves that 9gag is full of shit.

    Edited:

    I should also post this image I googled to prove the inaccuracy of 9gag's content

    Well that's just even worse. Memebase is what's enabling the flood of vectorized rage face comics to be made by even the most computer inept person.

    Because rage comics were the pinnacle of quality comedy before the proles were given a means to make them.

    Of course they weren't but there was at least some tiny fraction of the content that was original (people making new faces or whatever). Even that is gone now.

    Facepunch has its own memes. I think you mean any site that is based around memes.

    It would have been funny, if the community would not overuse shitty memes etc. It would be a bit better if they would actually be able to understand what the meme means before using it.

    Maybe it's just me, but FP loves to hate sites like these. It introduced memes to the mainstream audience and some people on the internet really seem to hate this.
    It's user-submitted content, of course some entries can be retarded.

    If you combine stolen OC and unfunny memes that died years ago, you get 9gag.

    So yeah OP it does suck.

    How the hell do they "rape it into even more unfunny shit" if 9gag just takes it and puts a watermark on it?
    Are you implying watermarks are funny? I don't see the logic here

    Edited:

    And by the way, 50% of LMAO pics content is reposted from reddit.
    i believe _hime was saying reddit also steals content from 4chan.

    Basically this

    I personally hate 9gag since 90% of their content is stolen from other sites like funnyjunk and stuff... the other 10% is lame and boring stuff.

    The community consists of all of the unfunny "leechers" that take content as their own, as stated the concept is good, but the Facebook integration brings in too many 12 - 18 year old girls.

    There is lots of controversy over 9gag and whether it's actually good or not. Good for debates, maybe not on facepunch because everybody seems to be agreeing that it's terrible, but with people who like 9gag you'll generally find an interesting debate.

    It's garbage, filled with shitty ragecomics and dead memes. Also, their watermarks are annoying.
    Still better than FunnyJunk, though.

    No, Facepunch just frowns upon unoriginal usage of memes and image macros.

    Tons of shit content and terrible community
    the content that isn't shit, is stolen from better websites (OC wise) such as reddit, 4chan or even webcomics (like that xkcd strip with the added text)

    Edited:

    I think they usually have funny stuff. Also, call me crazy but I don't give a shit whether the image i'm looking at is a repost or original content or not as long as its funny or entertaining to me.
