“I go on 4chan and I like reddit.”
Unless you’re going to /b/, /soc/, or another shitty board, we don’t want you here. You can say you go to 4chan, but that doesn’t make you one of them. It’s pretty much agreed across the majority of the boards that Reddit is a cancerous shithole.
“I think that it’s 9gag we all need to hate.”
We hate 9gag more than Reddit, but that still doesn’t mean that we can’t hate Reddit. You guys are almost as bad.
So how the hell are the other entries getting so many views, anyways? I don’t care one way or the other, but the articles themselves are pretty piss-poor. Even coolface has a horribly written page that barely tells you anything. That’s pretty damn sad for probably the most recognizable meme in recent history.
I’ve been getting this kind of reaction a lot lately. Who’s up for a love-hate orgy?
@That last guy
Of course there’s going to be something wrong with any fanbase. That’s a given. I never said the first ponyfags didn’t have undesirables.
The problem is that the wrong part of the fanbase has outgrown the good. Even you guys can hate the kinds of people who I listed in my last post. When there’s so many of them that they become the majority, that’s when you either can’t deal with them, unassociate with them, or do something about it, AKA grow a spine.
Another thing. Do you just think that every fanbase is the same because there’s always nutjobs on both sides? Or that everybody is exactly like you, in which you don’t try to force your views or you don’t obsess over ponies? Just because you don’t see them or choose to ignore them doesn’t mean they exist. You’ve got an awfully limited view.
PART 2 OF MY COMMENT, READ THE BELOW SHIT FIRST
We, the rational people, don’t hate the show, guys. We hate the fans. They’re obnoxious, they’re obsessive, they push ponies on everything, it’s the sole goddamn thing that identifies them, they’re so quick to jump on the bandwagon, they shove it in our faces, and they never know when to quit.
Yes, I get it. You’re a special snowflake and you’re not like them. A lot of them aren’t like them. This isn’t a comprehensive guide that speaks for every brony here. The problem is that the people that fit the above description are growing. In the beginning of ponies, there were very few of these people, but as it got mainstream, that number began to grow and the descriptors list began to grow.
And I’m afraid you guys aren’t going to be able to stop it. If you can, that’s wonderful, but it looks like history is repeating itself and you guys will jump the ship like we did when we didn’t want to associate with you guys.
okay i’m never being longwinded again
Goddamn, this is a long post. I’m done writing walls of text after this shit. PART 1
“We” refer to the people who don’t like the pony fanbase. You guys have transformed into an entirely different beast together, and simply put, you guys aren’t good anymore.
But anyways, how do the media make it worse? They aren’t you. They aren’t the pony fans. They can misrepresent the pony fanbase, but it’s not them who we’re complaining about here. Besides, the media seems to be portraying ponies in a largely positive light. With news sites claiming it spurs creativity and collaboration, or talking about the quality of the show, the media shows or sites that say otherwise are in the minority.
People who jump on the pony hate bandwagon are pretty damn stupid themselves. Anybody who still uses the argument “IT’S A SHOW FOR LITTLE GIRLS” obviously didn’t think their shit through and you can conclude that they either didn’t think their argument through or they hate ponies because their friends do. There’s shit like this on both sides, though, so pony siders or defenders don’t have their hands clean either.
Actually, it seems like the people who make it worse are the biggest fans of all. They take the show to an extreme, and I don’t think I need to point out the flaws more since I’ve ranted about this shit like every week on the Pony section.
Once again, though, you seem to think that we pick on people, fanbases, or whatever the hell because it’s popular. You’re very generalizing of people who dislike ponies and you seem to think that we have no better reason than you guys being popular. We have a lot more reasons than that.
My point still stands.
It’s dead, guys. You can stop giving it attention now.
Jesus Christ, this article is horribly outdated and it tells you nothing. It’s like none of you even go to 4chan while all of you are busy circlejerking over the newest Reddit advice animal.
Maybe there is hope for man. This page is perfect.
I dunno what to say about it. It might be maturity? It might be that they accept valid criticism? Hell if I know. I think too much as is.
ur a faget
@Whoever the fuck responded
“I doubt the entire culture will just ‘disband’.”
That’s why I said the core fanbase. Just like the old bronies were pushed out by the new ones, I feel it’s just going to happen again with ponies becoming more and more mainstream. They’re progressively getting worse, just like the original ponyfags felt about you guys. You could say a similar relationship is like 4chan, Reddit, and 9gag, although obviously the most we can do as a community is shed the memes and the mainstream connections that have been bastardized by the other websites. With you guys, it’s not so simple, since ponies are kind of one entity; one fanbase, or at least you guys are viewed as such. Just kind of like how we jumped the ship when you guys came along, I think you guys are going to do the same thing when the 9gag of pony fans comes along. (And please don’t take the 9gag thing so fucking literal. You should understand.)
And honestly, I can’t say this a bad thing. The show is good, but I know for most of you it’s the fanbase that really made the show, and you guys will still be out there. And hey, there’s nothing saying you guys still can’t watch ponies.
I can’t wait until the inevitable shitstorm that arises when the Brony Song starts surfacing up to the masses. Bonus points if KYM posts about it on the front page.
Even if I hate these bastards with a passion, at least it arises in notoriety to where even pony fans can admit they’re bad. I can’t help but think that with each passing day of the pony fanbase, it’s all one more step to the core fanbase imploding and disbanding itself.
HOW TO MAKE LE EPIC MEME – A REDDITOR’S GUIDE
STEP 1: TAKE A COMIC THAT’S ACTUALLY FUNNY
STEP 2: CROP OUT THE FACE; BEING ORIGINAL IS FOR FAGS
STEP 3: MAKE SHITTY COMICS WITH IT AND SPAM IT EVERYWHERE
STEP 4: LE EPIC UPBOAT xD WATCH THE LIKES POUR IN
CONGRATULATIONS, IF SOMEONE ELSE HAS USED “YOUR” FACE EVEN ONCE, IT IS INSTANTLY A MEME AND YOU’RE INTERNET FAMOUS, HAVE FUN BEING AN INTERNET ICON
Also, when did it honestly become the brony mantra? When the fanbase started, nobody believed in that “love and tolerance” shit. We watched a funny show and had fun with it. Hell, when were the words even uttered in the show? As far as I believe, the phrase originated from the Twilight Sparkle macro “I’m gonna love and tolerate the shit out of you.” That’s a fucking joke, dudes. Let’s not start paying people in rape dollars.
I guess that’s just a trigger phrase of mine, the whole love and tolerance shtick, and especially when it treats the pony fanbase as a whole. Pretty much the whole of the original fanbase is gone due to the new fans and how they’ve treated the show. It may not be to you guys, but to be a pony fan around my people and many others is a mark of shame. I’m just sad to see that happen. But hey, it was bound to happen anyways, right? The show was pretty much a perfect match for mainstream bastardization and widespread appeal.
I dunno, I’m just done talking. I guess I said this was for opinions in the beginning or stuff, but eventually it just turned into a rant and half of you guys are going to call me a troll, anyways. Hup, time to stop getting all philosophical and quit the bullshit.
@A madpony whatever-his-name-is
This is unrelated, and yes, I agree that RainbowDashFanX is fucking stupid… But really, since when is being a Brony all about love and tolerance? Dunno, this is just kind of a pet peeve of mine, but people seem to think that’s all there is to being a fan. Maybe I’m just asking for your guys’ opinions here.
But what is it about you guys and that mantra? It’s a good lesson to know, and kindness is always a good thing. But you guys just seem to take it way too far, to an entirely different level. You watch the show because it’s entertaining, right? At this point it seems more like a worship, going as far as taking a child’s TV show moral message and living it out as your code. It’s kind of like blind following. Morality isn’t really that black and white, and you all seem to be twisting the message to where it applies in every situation. There are people who aren’t gonna fly with that shit, whether they have good intentions or not. It’s a good thing to tolerate, but it isn’t the universal tool to solve everything. Believe it or not, sometimes you have to be rude, forceful to make a point or solve a problem, unfortunately.
Uh, does KYM not allow super long comments? Because this is a two-parter.
But 4chan is the relatively tame community in comparison to all the other sites, at least referring to all the pony OC. They’re not the ones who are pushing the whole Fluffy Pony shit that’s been going on lately.
Also, you said LITERALLY rape to death. Do you even know what literally means?
Geez, someone happens to dislike your comments, you cry someone is trolling you, and then you’re whoring yourself for likes on the Pony comment section so you can get your pointless numbers back?
Hey guys, someone disliked my posts on my comment wall. In fact, somebody probably disliked this post too. You guys are trolling me, please like all of my posts and give me attention. My opinions aren’t unpopular. Trolls are mean.
Oh hey, Captain Rainbow. For a second I thought Nintendo didn’t want you to see the light of day for American audiences. Looks like you got a bit of a costume redesign. Cool new sword and wings, too.
NON-SPECIFIC ACTION FIGURE HASN’T EVEN BEEN AROUND FOR A WEEK
DON’T START INFECTING IT ALREADY WITH YOUR PONYSHIT
The only thing that was actually good was the Spongebob ad. What a shitty month.
Are people still stupid enough to believe this? The phrase came up in 2007 and it was completely true back then. Now it’s kept alive because it’s both funny when done right and great trolling material for people who worship Sony like the second coming of Jesus.
Now please keep your console fanboyism, statistics, and shitty modern games away from the page. It’s a fucking joke. The PC Gaming Master Race has better things to do than hear about which piece of shit is better than the other.
Nobody had any games this year except for Ubisoft, who saved everybody’s asses. Great job dropping the ball, everybody.
That guy isn’t incredibly fat. This image is misleading.
