I understand why you feel the community is currently being bashed. I have noticed that there is a lot of negativity coming from people outside the fandom, but the negativity is meant to be joking.
In truth, I’m becoming less amused by the “jokes” every day.
Criticism is okay, of course. But it’s come to the point where it’s no longer constructive, it’s just annoying and/or redundant. I agree with you on a few things, but I do not think the community is rotting; as more new people join, I believe they are trying to make themselves known in whatever ways they can, which is understandable. Also, they might just be unaware of etiquette, which stems from an utter absence of it in far too much of the Internet.
I don’t understand why people downvote you for expressing your opinions, but I like to think it may be simply because the opinions are expressed in the comment section, not the forum. Many people are touchy about posting in the comment section if the content is not directly related to ponies.
