    Had an idea a few days ago. Why isn't there a script (not a programmer don't know what I'm talking about) that will search google images so that you can only post OC to forums(OChan?), social networking sites, ect? Effectively killing the spamming of memes and fake profiles.

    Granted you could throw it into MS paint change a few pixels or crop it to bypass this but the lowest denominator of human wouldn't have a clue what to do.

    Because:
    • Massive overhead (and I mean massive) for sites that should be high-performance
    • Difficulty of detecting duplicates (Image comparison is hard)
    • Possibility of false-positives and pissing people off
    • Easy to circumvent
    • The google image API (if one exists at all) is not suited for this task
    • It ultimately doesn't increase the quality of the posts (shitposters are going to shitpost)

    Nope, because I never payed any attention to it. You can explain if you like, but in all probability I still won't pay attention so I just wouldn't bother.
