I can’t believe it’s been four years and people STILL haven’t learned that the more you scream, holler and throw Ghost-proportion tantrums against us, the more we laugh at you and the more stupid you look.

Seriously, we started out on 4chan, the land of trolls trolling trolls.

One of the reasons we spread so fast was because of people like /v/ being so damn easy to piss off and prime lulz material attracting more attention to the show.

A three troll raid is still more then a zero troll raid, and it’s still enough to keep the article tending for a while.

Besides, that version of Gary Coleman was talking to nobody in particular if my memory serves correctly.

But I consider myself to be more of a half-troll in this case. While I don’t hate, or even dislike MLP I am genuinely sick of the over zealous fanbase. The worst part about them is that they are everywhere. Honestly I believe that the popularity of MLP is completely arbitrary. It’s not a bad show but it does not warrant this amount of absurd popularity.

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, ‘If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.’. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- ’Don’t ever smoke. Please don’t put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 16, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this article gave me cancer anyway.

>/mlp/’s collective face when 10 years from now there is a MLP FiM movie in the style of The Smurfs/Alvin and the Chipmunks that features a “Brony” as the male human lead.
>Brought to you by Dreamworks Studios and Twentieth Century Fox…
>This Summer, get ready, because this movie will make you… A little hoarse!
>CGI Applejack yells “Yeehaw!” and shitty licensed pop rock music starts playing
>Various scenes of the ponies messing up human stuff and the chubby male lead looking exasperated while toilet paper flies across his face or something
>Dash makes a terrible pun
>She looks straight at the camera for 2 seconds and then says “…What? It’s 20 cooler!” While making the dreamworks face
>But can these ponies… Help their friend find true love?
>Cue generic blonde actress as female love interest, way out of male lead’s league
>Trailer ends with ponies running through new york or whatever big city the movie is set in
>bronies declare it the greatest thing since past sins was canonized
>/mlp/ collectively commits suicide immediately

Decent show, cancerous fanbase. Much like Minecraft or Five Nights at Freddy’s, it becomes so overexposed that it leads to a massive burnout, and you just get sick and tired of it.

To paraphrase Mr. Plinkett, "You gotta smear that shit all over the place, like the vaginal secretions of a prostitute.

I would disagree, and not just because I’m a fan. I would say the general fanbase is quiet and mostly keeps to itself, aside from the pony posts and things. It’s when the VERY vocal group of rabids who have nothing more to do with their lives than a cartoon start posting that things start getting oversaturated with ponies.

But it’s not really any different than when Trekkies were the “rabid fanbase” of the day, except that the show is noticeably younger in target audience.

Funny story about that, actually. Never was a Sonic fan, but when I made a MLP OC, I decided to make two. First, for when I was going to troll and be “that fan,” (which resulted in this pic), and second being a legitimate ponysona (that is, me as a pony, flaws and all). And after a while, I stopped trolling and just started being a normal dude with this account.

i’m guessing some bronies will panic because of the new movie so i have this to say; transformers prime proved that no matter how bad a movie adaptation can be, the tv shows will live on and continue to be good .

Honestly, I don’t think it would be “garbage”, but I am inclined to say that things can go either way.

Still, it’s strange that whenever Hasbro announces a movie adaptation, they then cancel the current tv series due to fear of having two toylines. I think it’s rather obvious that season 5 is the last season. If not, it’ll probably be shelved until 2018 since that’s the only year gap they have left since Equestria Girls gets 2016 (maybe a 13 episode season 6 if they feel they need it for a summer to winter thing) and this movie series set to release from 2017 to 2019 at the least, and 2020 is the plan for G5 to show up, so it’s gonna have to die then anyway.

The strange thing is that hardly any of the current staff outside of McCarthy doing some oversight is working on it, so one possibility is that it very well might be a CGI film and somewhat of a reboot of the series. It’s probably my greatest dream (a soft reboot) and my greatest nightmare (having hardly any of the people familiar with the series working on it) rolled into one. Time will tell if it’s gonna be actual shit or not, as while they did drop the ball 4 times with Transformers, they didn’t really drop the ball enough yet. Outside of the second G.I. Joe movie and the first Transformers movie, Hasbro hasn’t had a good track record when it comes to theatrical adaptations of their IPs. Still if nothing else they can’t mess up the Jem and the Holograms movie coming out the same year AND this…. right?

I wouldn’t worry about it. The second movie was pretty good (if you enjoyed the first one at least), and season 4 was a good season after the first movie was released. I’ve also seen stilts of the first part of the pilot episode of season 5 and it looks really interesting. The series will be just fine; I’m sure of it.

Missed out on the premiere of Rainbow Rocks on the Discovery Family channel (I miss the Hub logo…), and don’t live in America to have another chance at watching it? No problem, I recommend going to Dailymotion, where you can not only watch Rainbow Rocks, but My Little Pony episodes aswell! Either that, or you could wait for someone to ignore Youtube’s copyright rules by posting the movie on Youtube until Hasbro takes it down.

I find it hilarious that most brownies nowadays don’t actually know how bronies actually came to be. They don’t realize that it was a joke/ trolling tactic on 4chan, and no one there was really a legitimate fan of MLP. Eventually though, they did it long enough that people began to take them seriously, which caused a massive influx of bandwagoning by people who never realized that the whole thing was a joke.

What makes you say that? People don’t clamber on the bandwagon of something like this unless it’s at least moderately enjoyable. Even if they claim it was a joke, something tells me they actually enjoyed the show itself.

Unfortunately, due to Poe’s law we’ll never know for sure.

(On an unrelated note, I’m surprised that only 13 angry bronies saw this)
Actually, I have quite a good recollection of how all this brony shit got started, and I remember the atmosphere of the community, and I can tell you that if not all of them, then the sizeable majority of them, indeed didn’t legitimately like the show like people do now.

Also, for those who deny bandwagoning by bronies, you’re ignorant and talking out of your ass. You don’t give every show for elementary age girls a chance when you see it, and the odds are more likely than not that if you’re a brony, you got into it through the bandwagon just like every other brony out there.

(Can I get another burial here?)
