Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with people joining the herd. It's just that there aren't many of the older bronies around to teach the newer ones about certain ways to act or behave. Like when I first started commenting on the MLB boards, a lot of time was spent chasing off trolls, or as we called them, parasprites, by being as nice to them as possible. Never resorting to name calling or threats...just being nice to them until they either joined the herd themselves, or gave up coming to the MLB boards. Now it seems like the newer bronies are just straight up being as mean spirited to the trolls as the trolls are themselves. It's a crying shame, really. Also, no, I never played that game. But I've never really been a fan of fighting games myself, so that's a big reason as to why not. ^_^

I completely understand where you're coming from my friend, believe me. What you're witnessing is the watering down of the fandom. Which means that it's become popular to be a brony. Thereby you have a large influx of people into the fandom that don't understand the origins of it. As I said, things in life tend to change, sometimes for the worse. That's why it's important to enjoy things as they are and keep precious memories of them to be nostalgic about. However, you shouldn't live in the past, that's not healthy at all. Just try to remain the good person you are and remember the good times you had fondly. There WILL be good times in the future as well. Keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart bro, and you'll be just fine. ^_^

You can still enjoy the cartoon for the voice acting and art though. That's one of the reasons I've watched cartoons my whole life, and I plan to continue doing just that until my dying day. The unfortunate truth is that a lot of cartoons are made for the sole purpose of selling toys, and sometimes the show suffers for that. It's just something you have to either deal with, or watch something else. That's why I don't blame anyone that wants to leave the fandom because of it.

Indeed, but they DO have merchandise to sell. So I can understand them changing things to better suit that need, even if it messes up the characters and story by doing so. It also teaches kids that things don't stay the same forever, and sometimes they change for the worse and not the better. So that's something to think about as well. I know you don't hate Twilight, but it was funny seeing you rant about her becoming an alicorn. XD In the end, remember, it's just a show for 10 year olds and don't read too much into it. :D

(Was she acting dumb? Or perhaps things worked out exactly as she planned them to? Think about it, Twilight learned how to use her power along with the other's magic and find her place as a princess. Discord learned some more about being a true friend, even though he lost his way for a bit there. I seriously think they could have ended the series on that episode tbh. I'm sorry, I couldn't help laughing at your Twilight hate...so hilarious! XD I didn't really care for Twilight to begin with, so that's why I wasn't too bothered with her becoming an alicorn princess. I don't really care for the CMCs too much either, but some people like them, so I can tolerate 'em. ^_^ )

(Right, right...well, every fandom will have rabid fans in them. I'm sorry to hear that they forgot what it means to be a brony, the core being love and toleration. Unfortunately some tend to lose sight of that credo. Indeed, I loved the music most of all in that ep. Made me feel like a kid again tbh. XD So you didn't care for the S4 finale then? I thought it was a lot better than say, S3's finale..because it actually felt like a finale, and not rushed like some of the others.)

Why would I be disappointed in you man? You're perfectly welcome to choose whatever fandom, if any, you want to follow, and even more so to leave it when you want to. That doesn't make you any less of a friend to me. So no worries, really. ^_^ Personally, one of the reasons I stopped making lolz for a while was because I found myself more engrossed in trying to think of something funny to make instead of enjoying the show. I really enjoyed a few eps in S4, especially "Pinkie Pride" since Weird Al is something of a role model to me, having grown up listening to his parodies helped shape my own sense of humor after all. :D Joining this fandom is the first time I've done such a thing. I've met so many wonderful people and made quite a few friends. Even though a lot of them have moved on to bigger and better things, I still keep in touch with a handful of them. I truly just want to see everyone be happy and succeed in their dreams. It's kind of a promise I made to myself to try and be a better person due to experiencing a tragic point in my life. I just want to be able to hopefully reach out and maybe get a laugh or smile out of someone that might be going through their own dark times. It always helps to have a light to see with, y'know? :) Anyhoo, I do tend to ramble sometimes, so I'll just say that no matter your decision, I hope you'll still stay in touch..you know, if you want to...*Fluttersqueek*

I don't know about HDD for brains, but my doctor did say my brain is a bit too big for my skull (I'm still trying to figure out if that's a compliment or an insult) and my memory doesn't go that far back, so I'll just take your word saying that Rainbow Grevious was the first. It looks about right, anyways.

(I don't know if the majority of them left the fandom, just left cheez in general. I can understand why some people hated both Twilicorn and EQG. I personally have no problem with Twilicorn and I sat down the other day to watch EQG and I didn't think it was as bad as everyone thinks it is, but that's just my opinion. I would be sorry to see you leave the fandom, but things change in life, and that's something I'm used to by now. Just remember, if you ever need someone to talk to, I'm always willing to lend an ear. Whether you're a brony or not. ^_^ Take care my friend!)

(Indeed, I just don't comment like I used to. Ever since Cheez went to beta and erased ALL the comments from before, it kind of discouraged me from it. Well, that, and I don't like being popular all that much. XD Let's see, SirKilmoreRyan had gotten more involved with ibrony, and I believe the last time I saw him there, he was leaving the fandom, which was sad, but he had his reasons I guess. NormanSteel...I'm not too sure about what happened with him, but I think he left Cheez awhile ago. I see Galaick on Steam every so often. ParanoidPenguin has his own YT channel that he uploads to every so often, but he's turned into a bit of a closet brony now, which is cool and I can totally understand why. I'm probably forgetting a few, but in all honesty, I probably know as much of their fate as you do. As for me, well, I'll upload a lolz if I think of one, but I've mainly just been taking it easy, RPing when I can, and chatting with some of the many friends I made on MLB over the years. ^_^ How are you by the way? I really did enjoy that anniversary lolz of yours, it was quite well done.)

Sorry I haven't seen your message until now. We changed the comments to default to most recent cause I know that was a request. We are working on it though, trust me. Overall, it's a better way to have users interact more etc. Nice post about MLB btw! retoast to you!
