To start I'll just answer some common questions. Why am I logging in after so long to do a farewell post? Well because this isn't really a farewell to the forums post, this is a farewell to all of MLP post. I know it's been a year or so sinceI've been on these forums, but... why the hell not. So I thought at some point I might return... and I didn't. I thought I might go back to the discord... that also never happened. Mostly I felt there was no reason too. This has been a big topic floating in my head. There is no reason to stay in this community any longer and at that point, I just abandon the show for my own sake. Too better define no reason, I NEVER MADE ONE FRIEND IN THIS COMMUNITY. I've found cool people to talk to, but there is more to friendship then just talking to someone. There is more to showing someone you actually care about them then just responding to a post, adding them to a friends list, or respond to a message. Sometimes you should just try to reach out to a person who is going through *squee!*, or if you haven't heard from someone send them a message to just make sure they aren't dead. The big reason this bothers me so much is this is a community for a show about FRIENDSHIP. The more I think about this the more I ask myself "Was this community ever friendly, to begin with?" I can't answer this honestly. This community is no different than any other community, I guess that mind *squee!*s me because I came into this thinking everyone was a good person... but I was very wrong. So for those that have not heard the recent stuff with Toonkritic. Basically, the guy was caught being a pedo and doing some real sick *squee!* with 14-year-old girls. To make this all much worse in my point of view there is a 26-minute long video of the Skype call with Josh Scorcher and some other arguing over nothing when they should've just said "dude you sick bastard, we're reporting to the cops" *end skype call. So Josh who had a lot of opinions for Toonkritic only fueled my rage much more. For those who don't know Josh, he's another "Horse famous" "Brony analyst" trash, who was also dating a girl that was 16 years old when he was 23... yep... WTF! Like you can't just put newspaper over this *squee!* and hide it, you did this crap too. There might not be evidence to back up that he did anything, but for a community that is against pedo activity. Is it that *squee!*ing hard to find a girl old enough? There were other things about these horse famous craps like I heart Kim and Black Gryphon selling people a half hour talk session for $100, it just doesn't seem to have an end... but the bronys do good things to like donate to charity... So do things like Blizzard when they sell a digital cat for $10 every Dec and donate the total earnings to Make a Wish Foundation? So is Blizzard bronys too? The next two things to go over real quick are, being a fan of MLP makes it almost impossible to make new friends or start a relationship with someone. In my time in this community, I've never made one friend. Between multiple forums and going to a convention 3 times, never made a friend. I've even talked about this in the con discord group and they just act like, well did you try everything? So then with G4 possibly/probably ending I guess *squee!* it why not leave now. So to conclude this cluster *squee!*. To anyone that takes the time to read all this *squee!*. Maybe it will help someone else out down the road. Maybe someone will understand and try to improve overall this crap... I don't know. I've lost hope for what happens to me and my choice is locked in. I'm not coming back from this no matter what, but hopefully, it helps some other guy out that's struggling. One last important thing, don't bother replying to this. I'm not coming back to the forum... so I will never be able to read any replies. This is where it ends... Goodbye.
