FOR PONY THERE MUST BE!

EDIT: A message from the Moderators:

A number of community members have become concerned that others are being disrespectful in regard to their like/dislike of My Little Pony. We would like to remind everyone that this community is diverse, and should feel welcoming and safe for all members who would like to discuss and post about this Internet phenomenon. With that being said, there is a divide in our community; naturally some people adore the creatures, and others do not have a taste for the cartoon characters.

As of now, there are two threads. Those who like MLP, and those who don’t.

We have received many reports from posters in both threads; some say that those who are posting about ‘Ponies’ are spamming and are off-topic, and others are suggesting that people are propagating hate-speech by endorsing the destruction of the fictional characters. In the interest of moving forward, we would like to clarify our policy on this matter. Hate speech is defined in our Code of Conduct, and primarily focuses on groups of people who exist in real life. We would like to remind everyone that My Little Pony is not real. Other users however, are real.

We would ask that users in both of these threads remain on topic, keeping in mind that there are dedicated threads for each of these views on ‘Ponies.’ It is acceptable to express the dislike/destruction of ‘Ponies,’ as they are not real creatures, and are in fact cartoon characters. It is also acceptable to show pictures of `Mechs destroying zombies. It is not acceptable to express hatred towards ‘Bronies,’ or towards those who do not enjoy ‘Ponies.’ If you have any questions, please feel free to send the Community Moderators a private message. Otherwise, we expect that each of these threads will remain respectful of the other, and users will refrain from making directed attacks toward other users.

TL;DR: Ponies aren’t real: you may post about them being destroyed. People on these forums are real: you may not post personal attacks, regardless of whether or not they like the characters.

It seems this was inevitable...

I for one am not against the concept of Pony Liveries, but to say I was planning on or looking forward to them would be quite far from the truth.

12VR and SJ, you should be ashamed of yourselves for bringing ponies to MWO.

I don't know your forums or threads, but I think it doesn't take an FTL engineer to get the gist of it. I am forced to second this "Coffinail" and his sentiment on the grounds of . . . well, ponies.

Back in my day, MLP characters vaguely resembled ponies.

Ponies are the glue which holds the internet together these days.
