Is there some inside joke I'm outside on here. What's the deal with the pear with the mouth? And why are people being banned for it?

It's not actually against the rules.

It's a mod discretion thing though, so they can decide to ban you or not for it.

It was deemed incredibly annoying by the mods a while back, so now people get banned for posting pics of it.

It was a meme that became annoying and overused, therefore posting it results in a ban.

Ok seems weird to ban someone for it though.

Quote by The Rules
Any memes that the moderators deem offensive, annoying or just plain stupid are against the rules, regardless of whether they are specifically mentioned here or not. This includes images such as the 'LOL WUT' pear, and the practices of 'Rick Rolling', 'inb4' and 'c-c-c-combo breaking'. We suggest you do not spread memes like this across UG as if we feel the meme is sufficiently annoying, is being overused, or is a form of spam, you may receive warnings or bans at the mods discretion.

True, although recently it hasn't really been a bannable offence, as people just stopped posting it. Although douchebags who want a perma post it and are like "OMGZ COME PERMA ME MODZZ", instead of doing something epic and imaginative like a Heaven's Gate.

"inb4" is against the rules? Well I guess I found something they don't enforce.

You will get warned/banned 99% of the time. So to say we can decide not to do anything is true, but people should be aware that we rarely show leniency for the pear.
