I wanted to defend Braincels for a bit but everytime I do I come to the conclusion that they were actually banned for a good reason. Here are reasons why I really don’t care that braincels is gone
**1. braincels users constantly engaged in copyright violation and defamation that did not fall under Fair Use protections
Blackops2cel is not a public figure. His photos he uploaded to Reddit are not Fair Use. They would not fall under fair use in any court. Blackops2cel is just the tip of the iceberg as far as bullying on that sub. And yes it was bullying. There were countless examples of people cropping copyrighted private social media photos and making memes out of them. Private social media photos are NEVER FAIR USE. The forum admins are not legally responsibly for such things under the safe harbour laws but if the members are continuously engaging in it, the admins would not want to deal with future legal inquiries.
Is it just that I am a stickler for the law? Nope, I wouldn’t dislike a place simply for copyright violaitons. However, the defamation was largely aimed at incel-type-people.
**2 Braincels users were constantly bullying incel-type-people and innocent men
Braincels had a thing after r/MDE got banned of making fun of men who display feminine character traits. Now given most incels are feminine (I DONT MEAN GENDER DYSPHORIC, we are not encouraging people to transition), words like “■■■■” and “soyboy” are anti-incel type words.
Braincels’ most common attack words were gendered. Against who?? MEN!
