Front Page? 2000 thumbs? Why?

Oh, Pony-related. Never mind.

It happens to me too.

Fact of the matter is it's posted in Ponytime and pony posts are everywhere. This is where all of the support comes from.

A pony post doesn't necessarily have to pop out of the screen with ponies to be a pony post. This is somewhat subtle, in order to appeal to both groups on FJ (predominantly speaking, bronies and non-bronies). Not that this is a bad thing, it's just some way ponies will eventually take over FJ.

I also never thumbed down the content, I've stopped bothering.

Do you think I give a **** about thumbs? No, I don't. In fact, I could care less.

The amount of bronies on FJ does not bother me. They only watch a show. What I have a problem with is that Bronies will thumb up content that is otherwise not funny, just as long as ponies are mentioned. Same with stoner posts.

I'm not saying "everyone" who thumbed this up is a brony. I'm stating it was probably a large amount.

200 thumbs is a lot in order to get it off the ground.

When people see a content has +10 thumbs in the newest uploads, they'll be more inclined to thumb it up.

Same goes with the opposite; if you find a content with -2 thumbs you're going to be more inclined to thumb it down.

Other than those people who enjoy thumbing down content. Whatevers.

I didn't come here to start a flame war, I came here to laugh. This content gave me a small "feel", but not a laugh. Didn't thumb either way.

I just find that an otherwise "meh" content will be pushed along by people on this site by relation; such as stoner-related and dolan-related.

Also, bronies have the largest presence on this site in comparison to other groups, so it's only natural to appeal to the majority.

So OP is either a major thumbwhore by making bronies feel *that much* more related to the content or he is a brony as well.

Alright I hate to butt in, but what is this site good for if it's not for funny content? I come here to laugh but apparently I've been on here for the wrong reason, so please enlighten me.

I never said it was wrong.

I saw the first few episodes, didn't like it very much at all. I never saw what the big deal was. The humor they discuss is part of their progressing storyline which I have no idea about.

Heh. "Get the **** off this site". I stated what I thought and I got **** on by bronies. How ironic. If I wanted to leave, I would. I'm not going to let someone flame me off either.

I wouldn't even consider stating my opinion bitching. If you have a problem with free speech, just stop commenting.

(Also, keep thumbing me down. It sustains me).
