I don't hate bronies personally, but I'm getting sick of hearing about them.   
   
I don't think anyone would hate bronies if they didn't shove it out there so much.  I mean seriously, congratulations, you watch a child's TV show.  We don't give a 			****		, and not everything you do or say has to revolve around the damn TV show.   
   
This is the exact reason there are so many "haters".  People are getting something shoved in their face over and over again.  Obviously, if they don't like the TV show, they're going to start gaining animosity towards it.

You are probably the smartest person on this site. Too bad bronies can't get it through their heads
#516 to #486 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
I'm tired of this "shoved down your throat" argument. It's stupid.

Bronies aren't forcing you to acknowledge their posts/comments/existence. People only see a pony post and choose to rage at it themselves, then come on and whine about how it's "everywhere and being shoved down my throat!!111"

If a brony is talking to you specifically that's different, but 90% of the time that isn't the case. 90% of the time it's just people raging over a pony post that could be addressed to anyone.

TL:DR - Just be a reasonable adult and ignore them.
-Not A Brony
#545 to #516 - Krathalos (05/03/2012) [-]
Ignoring them and seeing them everywhere you look no matter where you look are two different things. Ignoring something doesn't mean it's not there. And they're not only everywhere; they have to let everyone know they're a brony.

I'll compare it to something, just for you. I don't hate gay people, and I don't care if they're gay. I only get annoyed by them if they start making out with other dudes directly in front of me and constantly talking about being gay. This is basically how I feel about bronies, and no, I'm not calling them gay. I just felt this was an accurate comparison.
User avatar #529 to #516 - grandmabetty (05/03/2012) [-]
No hes completely right. I wouldn't mind the bronies if they weren't so annoying and pretentiously try to show off their really un-funny pony stuff. They're all in-jokes and a massive proportion of people do not find it funny. They need to keep to themselves in order for them not to cause such a stir.
#538 to #529 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
If other bronies find them funny, then so be it. Anything that anyone finds funny has just as much reason to be here as anything else.

I don't watch pokemon, but you won't see me raging at it and telling them to get the **** out or saying that "pokemon is being shoved down my throat", because it simply does not involve me so I just ignore it.

#549 to #538 - Krathalos (05/03/2012) [-]
Let's start posting gore, because some people find it funny.

Or...
1. They (although deny being one) are hipsters and naturally want to hate it to go against the community.
2. Have't realized they can just skip it.

I didn't play skyrim and all this complaining about bending time is seeming hypocritical from my perspective.

Guys, come on now. Lets not make a ********* . It'll die if you ignore it. Remember when Dolan was tipped as the next MLP? And eventually the hardcore 'brolans' died out?

dolan wasn't based on anything except for a character.
Now this is a whole series. Just like MLP it will stay around
for a while because of the show. which i have no problem with
because i love the bending time posts.

OK guys, I am a very big fan of Avatar, but i agree with this post. It actually starts to irritate me when I see so much avatar content on the front page. Sometimes it's nice to see something you love on the front page, but not all the time. I don't think avatar fans should behave like bronies and shove ponies to everyone's faces. Tho honestly, I don't think my post would change anyone's behaviour, so go ahead and overuse avatar theme and make it boring.

its the same with every picture/ joke. they start off great but then they fall into the wrong hands and just get ruined. hopefully it wont happen with bendingtime.

I honestly don't mind this site being flooded with avatar or pony content. There is plenty
of other types of content, so it's not like it really matters. The only thing that makes me
angry is when people post unfunny **** that is purposely unfunny, like morbid posts
or just direct quotes from the shows. I mean, it's fine to post pony and avatar stuff,
but the least you can do is put some funny in there. Just quoting lines or drawing
artwork isn't the kind of **** you're supposed to be posting on a website called
funnyjunk.

Thank YOU......   
I couldn't agree more.    
There is plenty of un-funny 			****		 on this website, and some one will always get butthurt over it and others will try and defend it.   
If you ask me, its both sides of an argument that always ruin 			****		. If you dont like something, you dont have to get all butthurt about it and make sure all the people on the internet know. And if someone just rages and post stupid comments on somthing you like, just ignore the retard and move along. If you dont get butthurt and reply to them, its over. Who are they going to argue with?   
   
But this is the internet, where people come to rage on stuff they dont like because they think other people actually care.

It is true that we are indeed starting to immitate the mannerisms of the ponytime channel users, but even then yet, I would say we are still better than them, as we do atleast still thumb down stuff that is just not plain funny, such as wallpapers, fanart, music from the show, (possibly) fanmusic (when/if it is made), because there are other, better, options for all of these, hence not letting it go anywhere near front page.

We usually thumb it either to a maximum of 10 or so (from those that are the people that thumb because hey lol it's avatar, a thought process we don' want) and all the way down to about -32 is what I've seen so far, which is no where near as far as the pony posts go which, for almost each and every single post, is 50-200 thumbs, despite lack of any content, or general funny (which is the purpose of this site)

I have nothing against jokes and funny avatar related pictures, as long as they are genuinly still funny, or atleast try to tell a joke. If the joke is not all that funny (or terrible) it will usually never move further than the newest uploads, despite it's standpoint as "avatar content".

People like Mrshyguy (creator), InfernalOneShot and I are people that I see actively advocating and "protecting", so to speak, the ideals of this channel to its intention, which is not becoming he new ponytime with cancer posts 23/7 (yes 23, some actually have a joke in them every now and then), and **** that is just genuinly not funny.

Right now, Mrshyguy is actually formulating a ruleset/regulation for posting/thumbing content in this channel, akin to how Shadowofthewisps did in Ponytime, hopefully with more succes as we have not become a completely terrible "cancer" to this site yet, and hope to prevent it.

Hope this clears some stuff up

TL;DR We are working to make the channel better all the time.

I was asked to copy paste this from a previous "complaining post" about our rabid surge of posts.

If you want a summary it is basicly:

>Yes we know this is happening
>We think we are atleast doing better than ponytime when it comes to thumbing our posts
>We are working on a ruleset/regulation by which to post in Bendingtime
>We are working to fix it so that this channel can, hopefully, become a very funny one, instead of a cancer filled cesspool like Ponytime has become.

Thanks for reading.

Ahh, okay then.

I do actually like that picture as I find it funny to see, especially when used in blatant sarcasm, for example if someone writes a one paragraph sentence, that is where the true fun begins.

Note for any other people reading this: Please don't start to thumb either of us up or down just because of what we are saying, or you think one is wrong and the other is a "dumbass", because if doing that we are ending up being just as bad as ponytime is, where any form of "going against the borg, hive, herd, what ever you wanna call it, is being frowned upon and "punished" with thumbing down.

Act adult and behave accordingly.

User avatar #8 to #3 - dtox (05/03/2012) [-]
Except that's entirely hypocritical.

Not that people should slow down with the avatar posts, I enjoy them, just you've been a huge advocate against MLP stuff for the longest time, bashing the fans for thumbing down opinions (which is something I've seen on avatar posts) and posting a ton of pony stuff, and now you're fine with people injecting another media into funnyjunk without reserve.

again, keep the avatar posts coming, but you're holding some grotesque double standards there.

&gt;avatar not aimed at small female children in the slightest   
&gt;nobody accuses of some one being a faggot for liking this show at all   
&gt;animation is much better

The point of this post is that people will eventually get sick of the posts, and complete inside jokes shouldn't make the front page if the joke isn't funny, people just like where it came from.

No one's hating on the show, just saying this needs to slow down. Not stop. Slow down.

tell ya what, you tell bronies to do that, and be successful, and i'll try as much as i can to get bendingtime to slow down.

you realize how irrelevant all of that is, right? we're not talking about the qualities of the media, we're talking about the principle. not to mention your points are based on opinion.

as well, I highly disagree with your 6th point, your 7th point is based on the format of the actual show (which is different to MLP's "slice of life" format), and your 4th point is what's wrong with people.

Wasn't calling anyone anything, it's just that this shouldn't become a redundant loop on funnyjunk. That a channel not everyone relates to floods newest uploads & front page, and then eventually everyone hates them. Then we have a stupid little "war."

I'm not on a side, I'd just rather not see it happen.
