Well exciting times. Had to remove my Will Smith/Chris Rock meme from social media as the IFoA thought it was offensive and brought them into disrepute.
Apparently the 700+ people who thought it funny are considered outliers to their model of humour. *sigh*
I think it is a ridiculous, massive overreach by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries to demand that you remove your joke/meme from Linked In and Twitter. Almost any joke (or indeed any post touching on any non trivial topic) can be deemed "offensive" by someone. Is the IFoA saying that none of its members may make jokes whether in a professional or a personal capacity. I suspect that not only most actuaries, but most members of the general public would regard the IFoA getting involved in censoring a joke (unless grossly offensive, which I don't think anyone has claimed yours was, or could reasonably claim it to be) as far more damaging to the reputation of actuaries than your meme could be. There is now a poll on this, and the results so far confirm this: see https://www.reddit.com/r/Actuary_news/comments/twaiyd/which_do_you_think_brings_the_profession_of/. By a ratio of over 10 to 1 so far, the results indicate that the IFoA overstepped the mark. I think they owe you, their members, and other actuaries an apology.
