    I don't know. I'm just tired of seeing/hearing about that damn show.

    People love their memes.

    I have to wonder what other suggestions they were assailed with.

    Let's not interact with the idiot.

    No hold on. This is ridiculous. This isn't just some tv show, that some people happen to like. The people who obsesses over this show, have deep issues, and it's not okay that Gabe and Tycho are indulging them. It's messed up. On many forums, you aren't even allowed to discuss the show because of how creepy those people are. I think you aren't paying attention. I think you just took a quick look at the situation and said "oh it's just some cartoon that some people like." It's way deeper than that. Yes, there are a few people who just happen to like it, but a majority of them have issues. I can understand wanting to be friendly and non-judgmental, so you allow discussions of a wide variety of tv shows and activities, but sometimes for people's own protection you have to draw a line. Telling these people that their community is okay, is not helpful to them or to us.

    No, the reason MLP is verboten on some forums is that there's holier-than-thou geese who just have to get bent all sorts of out of shape just because someone else is partaking in a hobby that is not hurting any other person in the entire universe, ultimately turning it into some crusade that they just have to campaign for ad nauseum. Emphasis on nauseum.

    I don't even enjoy MLP, but I can understand the appeal.

    Anyways, this is ridiculously offtopic, and more to the comic: I enjoy the cosplayers at PAX (dressed up as an engineer for '09), and saw some amazing costumes this year.

    Name one crime a fan of MLP has ever committed other than offending your delicate sensibilities.

    No wait don't. Just shut up and leave your stupid bigotry to yourself.

    I apologize for the infraction I'm rightfully getting in advance for this but GODDAMN.

    Anyway! Gabe on Gabe sex, let's talk about it! I think Gabe would be the bottom to Gabe, don't you?

    Hrm, I always felt as though the MLP thing was better with just short clips of parts from episodes.

    I like to imagine that she left that pony there as a sign of her disapproval, for as soon as she heard his pause, she knew what was coming. Confusion and, perhaps, budding anger. However, he will never notice it, lost in his ideas and fantasies of fem-Gabe. Not related to fem-Shep. Perhaps she felt that only a pony could pull him out of his fantasies and push him into his girlish fandom.

    I'm rather struck by how young she looks in the first panel. I don't know why, maybe it's the shirt and I'm reminded of Ann for some reason? She just looks more cartoon young in comparison to Gabe there.

    if you're talking about SA and/or 4chan, the reason SA banned it was was there were far too many creepy weirdos basically being perverts and pedophiles in the 2 different threads created about the subject, both of which were locked due to rampant creepyposting. eventually the mods just got sick of modding the MLP SA thread and decided fuck it, we'll just ban discussion of it from the site because it's too much of a pain in the ass to deal with. basically the reasoning behind and implementation of a ban of MLP discussion from SA was the exact same as the reasoning behind and implementation of the ban of anime discussion on PA

    the reason 4chan banned it was, and i quote, "MLP fans are too annoying"




    Rent on
  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    Final Fantasy fans are too annoying.
    Football fans are too annoying.
    Movie-goers are too annoying.
    People who drink are too annoying.

    Oh look, everything can have intolerance.

    I'm not endorsing 4chan, i'm just saying that that was their reasoning behind the ban was not anywhere close as "No, the reason MLP is verboten on some forums is that there's holier-than-thou geese who just have to get bent all sorts of out of shape just because someone else is partaking in a hobby that is not hurting any other person in the entire universe, ultimately turning it into some crusade that they just have to campaign for ad nauseum. Emphasis on nauseum."

  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    The PA forum and SA forum aren't the only two on the internet! :P

    But anyway I wasn't saying you were endorsing 4chan, just pointing out that people get up in arms and silly about stupid crap. MLP-hate isn't any different than the hate directed at any other show or series / genre / whatever.

    please?

    also the SA threads got regularly invaded by haters also pony fans can be hella obnoxious and eventually the mods just didn't want to put up with that anymore

  • HenroidHenroid Radio Demon Internet HellRegistered User regular
    I remember when rolo started the girly thread in SE++ I asked if we could talk about ponies and he was quite unhappy!

    So I didn't talk about ponies. But there's a thread for it anyway.

    A lot of those creepy weirdos were trolls trying to get the thread banned. The SA fans made a spinoff forum about ponies that is still the cleanest MLP:FiM forum on the Internet. Just saying.

    What is the driving force behind the pony thing? Is it just meant to confuse and annoy people who aren't hip to it? Is it a symbolic reference to some horrible sexual fetish? Do people really watch the show?
