    I just happened on this topic today. I've only gone through 6 or 7 pages but I'll eventually look at them all. You guys' photos and interpretations are are hilarious., especially Ken's. I'm apparently much more liberal than he but I still find him very funny. Also I like Yvonne's "We're glad you're home. The Russians have pooped in the hallway." Great stuff. I wish I'd known about SeniorsOnly a long time ago.

    It is a message that is put in picture format, @Hal Pollner . Sometimes, it comes with a photo, and sometimes, it is just words. The censoring bots can pick out words in a post when they are written, and then places like Facebook and Twitter will censor conservative content, while usually leaving the same kind of thing if posted by a liberal.
    As an example, Facebook was fine with a drawing of a policeman being stabbed by antifa, but censored a post that suggested that rioters who attack people should be arrested, because facebook considered that to be hate speech.
    To get around that, people have started making memes, and putting the words in a picture box, so the censor-bot just thinks it is a picture and cant pick out the words.
