I like that he's self-aware and doesn't have to please the fanbase for brownie points. He does come off as a dick though. Like the lighthouse keeper from Rick and Morty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3cm-1-m1Z8 Still funny, though. I hope he continues to fuck with people. This fanbase really deserves it with how they kiss the ass of absolutely all the staff members.
Can't really blame the show writers for giving harsher responses lately, the mlp community can be especially autistic at times. I wouldn't be surprised if they got bombarded by frogposters or something.
>>25369781 At the risk of turning this into a /pol/ thread, I'm in favor of some gun laws like no felons, destructive device laws, and machine gun laws. They just need to fix the shit they have really. Like re-open the machine gun registry, re-evaluate what is considered a destructive device (and AA-12 is a DD according to the ATF), and removes the retarded SBR/SBS laws we got. The import bans need to get lifted too.
>>25369937 >implying this will affect Hasbro in any way Its not like he is going to fuck the toy sales for talking shit on social media, artists only do that to protect their image and reputation, even Lauren Faust can call someone a nigger and get away if she wants, but of course this will fuck with her carrer
Wait, are autists actually angry that something considered funny in a fictional world wasn't funny to them in real life (despite that fact that was even partly the point?)
Have they never watched a cartoon before? Have they forgotten the countless 'everyone laughs, fade to black, end credits' endings of episodes where something that wasn't funny caused them to burst into uncontrollable laughter to segue into the ending?
I didn't even like the episode that much but being upset over something not being funny enough is literally retarded
>>25370116 Was the guy really BTFO though? He said pretty matter of factly that when you make jokes unfunny and everything uncomfortable, then that's how people will feel. Dusedau basically said, "yeah, that was intended". That's not so much BTFO as it is complete agreement and affirmation of the comment, saying "yeah, it wasn't meant to not be uncomfortable. Deal with it."
>>25370188 >implying Not a Spikefag, but Spike isn't a bad character, at least not enough to be hated, he doesn't deserve the shit that is throw at him and of course people would want to see him succeed, shipping and projection is mostly applied to waifufags and shippers anyway
>>25369781 Wanting more gun control and being anti-gun is completely different seeing as there are varying degrees of control beyond outright banning guns, someone who is literally anti-gun is probably a retard who doesn't actually know shit.
>>25370116 Pretty much this, Frenchie most likely doesn't give a flying fuck about some autist not only not getting the point, but not getting that the episode was kinda meta in it being very much a use of the audience being left out of the loop because the viewpoint character was out of the loop.
I thought the episode was rather mediocre in it's pacing, but damn if I wasn't in on the long running joke that Twilight was jealous about not being in on the joke.
>>25369870 I love guns but when it comes to carrying, conceild or not, there needs to be a higher bar for training. Only reason to carry is to protect yourself or others and to do so effectively you need some degree of training or you're probably gonna do more harm than good and that training definitely has to go beyond range time.
>>25369870 >>machine gun laws >Do you even understand what the Second Amendment is for? Defense against tyranny, foreign and domestic. Machine guns are a waste of ammo anyways so fuck you for thinking we would need them in the first place. What are you gonna do, sweep a beach with it?
>>25370346 I don't care about spike. Big Jim and Dusedau have pretty much said that the episode is intended to be uncomfortable. That's not about emotional fulfillment. I just tend not to enjoy watching shows that make me uncomfortable, like cartoons where they peel up each-other's fingernails or shows where they have excessive gore for the sake of gore. I can simply not enjoy that style of entertainment.
>>25370480 It's not the awkwardness that makes it uncomfortable in this case, it's how painfully unfunny everything is while everyone throughout the episode is laughing like a sitcom's laugh track hysterically. You're not meant to get the jokes and are meant to feel bored and uncomfortable with the whole situation. It really doesn't make for an entertaining episode. Interesting from a writing perspective? Sure, but not entertaining to watch.
There was literally nothing wrong with this episode
Spikefags are the worst about projecting their ideals onto a character that is perfectly fine as is
Gun control isn't a bad thing, in moderation
Also, tbph this guy's responses toward the criticism have been lulzy as fuck and I appreciate his caustic attitude toward an outlier demographic weighing their opinions around unchecked. I fucking wish Big Jim had this guy's balls.
>>25370698 But at least the opener was interesting. You wanted to know how they were going to get out of it and whatnot. With today's episode, mostly I just wanted to know why the jokes were so funny, and the payoff is "you had to be there". Wooooo, I'm so satisfied...
>>25369941 330 million people live in this country. At least half of those people own a gun. Of course we're gonna have more shootings than the average post industrial country. It's like saying car accidents would go down if there were no cars.
It wasn't interesting to anyone older than 5 who hasn't seen the same plot done 10 times and better. It's just a show for little girls, but it used to be one that you could see without being bored out of your mind.
>>25370757 But they usually at least have a satisfying conclusion, ya know? I know it's a kids show, but that doesn't mean it should be devoid of entertainment value. All the entertainment of this episode came in the form of memes and references to movies that 5 year-olds are way too young to have any idea about (except maybe Back to the Future since they did the marathon the week before)
>>25370810 For crying out loud. Why is it that horsefuckers always say all the good writing was in the earlier seasons? The writing throughout the series was always average at best. It's not like season 1 was revolutionaryor anything stupid like that. The only reason I watch it is cause the ponies are cute.
Every season has its good and bad episodes. Every one. The only reason people think Season 5 is the worst or whatever is because A) it's currently airing and thus the new hot topic, B) people have become jaded, and C) increase in "ebin maymay" shitposting. Also everything isn't "new" anymore, while in Season 1 we were still getting to know the characters and Equestria. So basically, nostalgia.
>>25370786 That screencap, specifically the guy who posted the luigi image bitching about criticism for children's shows, fucking depresses me that these kind of people feel they themselves can wave off criticism of their shitty behavior and opinions by hiding behind "It's criticism, assholes! I'm entitled to criticize something, and saying it's a children's show doesn't devalue that!"
Gee, thanks Tumblr I didn't realize this was a forum for you to bash shit harmlessly without being worried about getting called out. The thing is; It -is- a fucking children's show and a children's show -can- be quality and entertaining just like the guy responding to him details, except the part saying "you know it's good because parents enjoy it too" as if to imply a matured mind's opinions is more validating than the children the show was fucking aimed at. It's this pretentious air of obnoxious entitlement that ruins the quality of the show for these assholes, that they -deserve- the show they want, that the show -needs- to be more complex or deep to be good or entertaining, the same kind of people that comprise the Spikefags who -demand- directly to show staff how Spike should be portrayed as a fucking character just to satisfy their own notion of quality.
No, "the show is shit now" is not 'valid criticism', No, "this episode was too predictable to be good" is not a 'valid criticism', No, "this character doesn't have an indepth backstory or is used in the -CARTOON'S- humor, therefor it's a badly-written character" is not 'valid criticism'. It's you rubbing your fucking dick at the fact that this children's show is easier for you to put on your TGWTG baseball cap and pretend to be a cinema critic by spewing your shit opinions around like they are the objective measure of 'professional entertainment media'.
>>25371410 Dude, excuse me if my post makes you mad, but I think you actually overreacted as fuck... I mean, I see where you are from and what you said is not necessarily wrong, but where I disagree is about the concept of target demographic: That shit should never excuse shit quality and should never fuck up artistic integrity. Again, I'm agree that "bronies" should calm the fuck down and stop complaining like bitches on Twitter, and for fuck sake I don't even hate the new episode, it is actually a good to me. But still, the quality of a show should never be about if it was good for the target demographic...
>>25371574 I agree that just because it's a children's show shouldn't excuse poor quality, because that's what Lauren was fighting against when she created the show; to prove that girls' entertainment can be quality and shouldn't be confined to the stereotypical media.
I personally can't see eye to eye that the quality of the show shouldn't be about if it's quality for the demographic, because that defeats what Lauren was trying to do in making quality content for the target demographic. My apologies if I came off rather caustic in expressing that, I've been keeping from sharing that opinion for the most part and it sort of bottled up to a critically autistic level.
>>25371692 Emphasis through reiteration to drive the point. I agreed that a cartoon shouldn't be poor quality, but that it's quality shouldn't be weighed specifically on how adults view it. Some consideration should be made to how the content reflects on the target demographic. In other words, think of the children. Won't somebody think of the children? :^(
You really shouldn't look at fans tweets and emails to you unless you have a really strong stomach for it. And arguing with fans is generally a no-win situation. I mean look at all the crap Meghan gets on Twitter she never once tweets a angry or sarcastic reply.
Also boohoo on the "they have to deal with autistic bronies". These guys get flown all over the world going to conventions and being treated like rockstars. I'd take the good and the bad working on MLP then toiling in obscurity for Littlest Pet Shop or Pound Puppies.
>>25373633 >>25373655 I think what he was trying to say that guns are a very easy and very appealing suicide method because of it. Comparing it to probably to the most popular method that is drug OD, the person is not going to walk away from a bullet to the head as where a person downing a bottle of his anti-depressant meds will likely live to see another day, giving him a chance to rethink his actions. And nice dubs btw
>>25370786 When critiquing something, one must take into consideration what the subject matter is trying to convey. I do not criticize a drama for lacking comedy or a comedy for lacking gore.
Not every episode of mlp aims to be a 22 minute laugh fest. This, like most, was trying to convey a message with cute ponies. In order for the moral to pay off properly, the audience needed to see things through Twilight's eyes and that is why the jokes and laughing appeared out of place. As a result, the moral was solid.
Cute ponies? Check. Excellent characterization for all cast members? Check. A reasonable and valuable life lesson? Check.
I say this episode succeeded in doing everything it set out to do. Now if this type of episode isn't your cup of tea because it wasn't all laughs or for whatever other reason, then you are more than welcome not to enjoy it, but to say that it was flawed for not having jokes is false because that was never its intention.
I also get this strange feeling that autists are particular vocal about episode like this (in this case, being excluded) that remind them of their own shortcomings, resulting in them getting triggered.
It's the same thing with Equestria Games; Spike needed to be brought low in order for his crowning moment of awesome to pay off. But the majority of criticisms for that episode is unfair because 'critics' hated how he spilled his spaghetti in front of everyone, which again was intended, and I can only assume the torrent of backlash from it was because it hit a little too close to home for some fans.
>>25376184 I liked MMDW because at the time I didn't try to autisticly over-analize the show and just enjoyed Top Cunt being trolled by the rest of M6. Dragon Quest was the first episode I genuinely didn't enjoy.
>>25370537 I get the feeling that was the whole point of the episode. It revolved around Twilight not getting whatever jokes happened between her friends and Discord, and you as the audience, are meant to feel the same way along with her.
>>25369837 >no felons Sure >destructive devices There are a lot of items that are already in circulation that are "historical" I'd say, like RPGs, old grenades, etc. >machine guns See above. There are a lot of historical firearms that would be destroyed if they made full-autos illegal to own. That would be on par with torching old uniforms/flags, breaking down the few remaining aircraft from WW2, etc. Full-autos are no more dangerous than semi-automatics anyway.
>>25376576 >>25376767 I'll be your Huckleberry. Reread the tweet he was responding to again carefully. >"if Twilight doesnt find the jokes funny and finds the whole situation uncomfortable then so will the audience" If the "character" doesn't find it funny or feels awkward, so -will- the audience. He wasn't giving criticism, he was stating his opinion as fact and blanket defining the audiences reaction to add unnecessary weight to his "critique". He was basically saying the equivalent of "What you wrote wasn't good because I was too connected to the character to enjoy the jokes or feel comfortable, oh and by the way the whole audience agrees with me."
>>25377946 It's a good argument, though. The episode is written from Twilight's perspective. The episode was about Discord telling an orange pun and doing something with peanut butter that Twilight didn't think was funny, and therefore the audience goes along with Twilight spending a lot of the episode not thinking that Discord is funny and wondering if he did something evil to spite Twilight.
And it turned out that he did do something to spite Twilight, but it was merely a non-magical dick move.
It's not really an opinion. If the whole episode is from book horse's perspective and none of the jokes are funny in her perspective, then the audience isn't going to find Discord funny either.
What was weird about the episode is that's the whole conflict.
>>25378117 If you watch it objectively the episode's conflict is that Twilight organized books while her friends had fun, and then she thinks Discord cast an evil spell that made everybody had fun without her. The truth was that actually Discord encouraged everyone to leave Twilight in solitude, which she probably would have appreciated if the weekend hadn't turned out to be so memorable.
The writing for this episode doesn't really follow your normal formula for fiction. It's more like a diary entry from real life - something that actually happens to people.
All I can say is that it's weird. I don't know if it's the best way to hook an audience. I mean, it's believable, but the episode wasn't really a story as much as it was... I don't know. A day. I guess. One of those days where Twilight's shut-in personality led to her missing out on a party or fun social gathering.
>>25378181 And I mean think about that. Since the episode is written from Twilight's perspective, not only did she miss out on the fun but so do we. She doesn't get the jokes and neither do we. And at the end, the reason any of this happened was because Discord told everyone to let Twilight sort books, which she would have liked if it turned out to be a routine weekend.
Discord regularly appears to kind of dislike Twilight, so I don't know. He wasn't being evil. Just passive-aggressive, and aside from that he actually did entertain the girls and they really liked his company that weekend.
>>25378206 A counter-argument to what? I told you that if the episode is from Twilight's perspective, then the audience is going to get the jokes and enjoy the situation about as much as she is. If you play it straight and don't have Twilight do anything too crazy, then most of the episode is a little awkward and a little dull.
What are you arguing? That you watched the episode from Pinkie's perspective? Or you watched the episode from omniscient third person perspective? How the fuck did you do that? The episode was written from Twilight's perspective.
The big problem with the episode, for me, is that the concept is kind of lazy; every single component has been done on the show in some way or form before (very often better) - e.g.: * One character misses out on an event that other characters engaged in, and tries to remedy this: see Too Many Pinkies, and Mysterious Mare Do Well; * Twilight massively overreacts to a minor problem - see Lesson Zero, and It's About Time; * Spike vainly tries to get a character to calm the fuck down, but fails because he's a faggot - see Lesson Zero, It's about Time, Inspiration Manifestation, and Amending Fences; * Discord is a manipulative douche - see every episode that has Discord as a character.
There are several different perspectives when writing.
First person is when a story is written from the perspective of the author. You'll see phrases like "with trepidation, I crept towards the door and clasped the handle with shaking hands." Most video games are from first person perspective, where you play the role of the character in the story.
Second person perspective is when a narrator tells you a story about someone else, inserting his own take on their actions. Stuff like, "Now Pooh Bear was a silly old bear, and I think that's how he got his head stuck in that jar".
Third person is when an outside observer is watching the story as it progresses. MLP is written int he third person. This perspective can be omniscient, but it isn't always. So you might have third person from Twilight Sparkle's perspective, or you may have third person from the omniscient perspective. From the omniscient perspective, you're shown what other characters are doing and you know what's going on even if other characters don't. However, if you're not in the omniscient perspective, you're following a character's perspective. You follow that character and see what they see, you know what they think, but you don't know things they don't know.
Yesterday's episode was written in third person from Twilight's perspective. Caphiche?
>>25378103 Consider that perhaps that was the intent. To have the audience be immersed in the world through the PoV of the character. Where this guy's argument isn't good is in the fact that he didn't like it, a personal subjective experience, and then he argues his take as an objective reason to call it bad and falsely uses the whole audience to bolster his statement, as if to say the whole audience shared his sentiment.
The idea behind his tweet is solid; that is certainly a method of writing, and it does have an effect on the audience. The problem is he's saying the episode was bad because of that connection to the character, because he didn't laugh, because he felt awkward, because of the convention of writing that was used. That's perfectly fine because that's his opinion, he's allowed to not like things, but he wasn't arguing it as an opinion when he brings the audience into it to validate what he was saying.
Personally, I felt that was the strongest part of the episode; that it forms that connection with the audience to make them experience the things Twilight experienced and make them curious and want to know. I saw somebody compare it to Lesson Zero, outside of just Twilight going crazy, it instilled in the audience the emotions the character was feeling and made them sympathize and experience the same tense despair the character was dealing with.
>>25378476 But it doesn't really instill Twilight's feelings in the audience because it's still third person, even if from her perspective. It's just that, like her, we don't see the fun things or enjoy the jokes.
>>25378476 >it instilled in the audience the emotions the character was feeling and made them sympathize and experience the same tense despair the character was dealing with Personally it made me feel that Twilight was a whiny jealous little bitch through the entire episode. If the episode did one positive thing, it woke me up to the fact that Twilicorn was a mistake - a mistake that must be ended.
>>25378579 Did you personally miss out on a bonding experience with your friends, or did you watch a horse complain that happened to her? It's the latter. That's the story you watched as it unfolded. Since it was all from Twilight's perspective it makes internal sense, but that doesn't mean you automatically feel the same things she does.
>>25378588 No it doesn't, I suppose it's up to personal interpretation. Regardless of what the writer's intentions might have been it always comes down to how the audience feels.
>>25378624 Why are you taking "audience stand-in" at it's most literal sense? No I did not find myself in an overly colorful magical world, as much as wishful thinking might want, but I did feel the connection with the character by experiencing what she was feeling because of how it was portrayed in the show. The whole point of the scenes, I believe, was to make the audience feel the same emotions Twilight was feeling and I think it did just that when the "criticism" in the OP image is complaining about feeling that way.
The conflict worked just fine from a thematic perspective. Structurally, attempting to make the audience feel uncomfortable so they can empathize with Twilight is presumably the goal here. Clearly from he reactions of the community, many people indeed feel this way. We could then way that yes, this episode was successful in this regard.
Unfortunately, one has to ask themselves if this was entertaining. I was not entertained, I was bored. I was bored because of the repetitive exposition, I think this can be boiled down to pacing. I don't think the issue here is the awkwardness itself, in-fact I wouldn't even call it uncomfortable or awkward, I would call it boring and uninteresting, but perhaps it's the amount of time we spend being bored and uninterested. We're hammered with the concept, we didn't need to spend the amount of time we spent on the conflict. Padding.
I personally found the episode as a whole to be entertaining, not because of this specific thread, but because of everything that was going on around of and outside of the thread. Spikes straight man/sarcastic supporting role, the references, seeing Twilight struggle and spiral, all of this was really great. Unfortunately we spend less time focusing on this great stuff, and more on establishing the fact that Discord and the rest of the mane 6 have inside jokes. Yeah, we get it, thanks guys.
This parallels to Princess Spike, boring dialogue and a dragged out plot was that episodes main issue as well. I'd recommend this writer work on these issues, and at least recognize them as problems so that he can improve on them. Clearly he seems uninterested, which is fine, but don't be surprised when you're met with so much contention.
In my opinion, it doesn't matter if the episode was good or bad, nor if the criticism was good or bad, he acted like an asshole for no other reason than some guy saying he thought his writing was boring.
I didn't have a problem with the episode making the audience feel awkward, that's good writing and puts you in the characters shoes.
My problems were: 1) Twilight spazed out again over something that doesn't matter despite learning not too at least three times before. 2) Her friends suddenly lost all sense of empathy as well as loyalty or interest in their friends well being for no raisins, AGAIN, and continued to rub their party weekend in her face and excluded her despite how uncomfortable it was obviously making her. 3) No one noticed Discord trollfaceing and blatantly mocking and teasing Twilight until he points it out himself.
>>25379261 1) When did she learn the lesson of not being jealous when she is excluded from something? 2) Her friends had no idea she was upset, as neither did Twilight (consciously at least). To them, they were just reminiscing on a fun time they had. They are not mind readers. Don't tell me you never did something that unintentionally hurt someone's feelings without knowing. 3) That is what Discord does even when he's being helpful. Remember how he helped Twilight figure out how to open the chest?
>>25379278 It shouldn't be excused, if this show is truly about imparting social lessons to young children then how the fuck can you have episodes like this and Lesson Zero and Canterlot Wedding that seemingly teach the audience:
"its totally fine to disregard or criticize the emotions of a friend when their inconvenient or may effect your own social standing because you can always appear remorseful later if they turn out to be correct or you want to get back in with them."
>>25379260 The studio proposes the idea for an episode. The writes, aka this guy, write them as we know them, the storyboarders make the drawings according to the story the writer wrote. AKR makes sure this works.
Seriously, if your in a social situation and not only are the people your with 'not noticing' their conversation is excluding you or making feel uncomfortable, but they don't try to include you in the conversation or change the topic for a whole day and one of the group keeps drawing attention to your discomfort and exclusion while the others laugh it up.
I'm afraid to tell you that these people aren't your friends, there actions are specifically designed to make you feel uncomfortable by not offering you any sort of common ground and the prolonged exclusion is often a hint they want you gone. In fact it sounds like not only do they not like you but they may be bullying you as well or at least allowing someone to bully you.
>>25379590 What? When I'm in a social situation with people making inside jokes, I don't get fucking uncomfortable, because I understand that I wasn't there. Literally who cares, you just move on with whatever you guys were doing, and the conversation changes. The way this is depicted in the show is obviously overly exaggerated, like most thematic elements in cartoons are.
>>25379627 No it didn't, because the whole situation was a poorly written episode far removed from realistic social behavior that thankfully was rescued by the fact that it had "and they all hugged" written at the end unlike the wailing or gnashing of teeth that will break out in class room's everywhere when incorrectly socialized children go around acting like inconsiderate asshats to each other.
>>25379787 No, most of them are not going to emulate anything, because most children live their daily lives in social situations, and those experiences have much more of an impact on their understanding of those very real situations than a dumb cartoon they watch does. Neuroplasticity also exists in the brains of children, you fucking autist.
>>25379936 It's generally not a good idea to do it. Negative attention is still attention, and if you freely give out negative attention to people who weren't really trying to get you riled, you'll soon be drowning in people who legitimately want to see you fling shit for their amusement.
Yeah, no, always listen to criticism, most of it is whining but even whiners have good points. If your not grown up enough to handle people not liking what you create then get out of the creative industry, its gonna happen a lot.
Uh, no? We have autists here who have gotten mad at every single episode, the odds of one of them walking up on twitter to somebody's face to second-guess decisions is bound to happen to any writer and it's always an uncomfortable situation,
That guy up there didn't even say it was his opinion, he already took it to the "i know what the audience will do" tone as if he had any more authority than Neal does.
The problem here isn't the episode being bad, many are, the problem here was that Movies4life guy being an awkward tactless fan.
Fans have shown many and many times, in this very board, that they don't know shit about what is good media. Listening to a guy, specially one with a tone like the one in case, is a waste of time.
I will agree that Neal shouldn't even have replied in first place, but I have a hard time blaming him for giving a little jab to a guy that showed up all "you don't know what youre doing but me a 20 year old who watches cartoons does".
That's a load of shit though, he only said that after Neal reacted to his first "your episode was cringe and thus the audience didn't like it" comment, which is worthless criticism and objectively wrong too since awkward moments for characters are something that happens every day.
Whining verb (used without object), whined, whining. 1. to utter a low, usually nasal, complaining cry or sound, as from uneasiness, discontent, peevishness 2. to snivel or complain in a peevish, self-pitying way
criticize verb verb: criticise 1. indicate the faults of (someone or something) in a disapproving way. 2. form and express a judgement of (a literary or artistic work).
Two terms are not mutually exclusive. LRN2ENGRISH.
>>25380045 Not really, it depends on the posters intent. People have made strong emotional connections to the generation of mlp, and it's not a stretch to believe that they would want the show to maintain consistent to their standards. if it's being done out of a love for the franchise, and they're not being malicious, I wouldn't call it a dick move. What I would call it, is being honest and upfront. I want my fans to tell me how they feel about what I made. That's not to say that I'm going to take any advice they may offer me, but perhaps some suggestions will be useful.
>>25380112 Perhaps, but at the end of the day, if the writer of this episode didn't want to deal with this inevitability, he shouldn't have made himself public on Twitter, he clearly knew this was a possibility.
It takes two to tango. It's unreasonable to expect everybody else to not be a dick, but it's much more reasonable for an individual to not put themselves in that situation.
>>25380290 >Calling someone rude is a personal attack Not even him, but what? Calling someone rude is not a personal attack. It wasn't constructive criticism and didn't contribute anything, but if you really think just calling someone rude is a personal attack, please kill yourself.
>>25380412 I really wanted to tell him to go kill himself, but I tend to have enough common sense to keep my edginess down when I'm not on 4chan. I did find his tweet very rude. In fact, it was a personal attack on the guy he was responding to.
>>25380416 >>25380462 Okay seriously, what the hell is going on? Calling someone rude is an attack against someone now? So if I said to someone that they deserve to be put down, and someone told me that was a rude comment to make, they're the one attacking me? Saying someone was being mean would also fall under this, so you literally can not say anything negative about anyone or else it's an attack?
>>25380402 It may have been rude, but certainly not a personal attack, as that would have to be directed at ones previous claim instead of evidence. Simply stating one is being rude is just a statement based on an observation. Commentary on ones person is not necessarily specified.
>>25380527 Do you have an argument other than just emotional projection and easily triggered amygdalas? Calling someone rude isn't a personal attack in the slightest, as it isn't attacking a person. It is a observation based on their behavior, by your logic calling someone who causes car accidents "accident prone" would be a personal attack. Please, reign in your amygdala before posting.
>>25380527 No. It fucking isn't. Here is a definition of personal attack.
>A personal attack is committed when a person substitutes abusive remarks for evidence when attacking another person's claim or claims. This line of "reasoning" is fallacious because the attack is directed at the person making the claim and not the claim itself. The truth value of a claim is independent of the person making the claim. After all, no matter how repugnant an individual might be, he or she can still make true claims.
Here is an example of a personal attack. >He uses Tumblr, so therefore he can't be trusted.
Calling someone rude is, well, telling them that a comment they made was inappropriate, or that they were being impolite.
>>25380555 I've been here way too long for faggots like you to get under my skin. I'm just imagining some pathetic neckbeard who hasn't showered in a month and lives in his mom's basement telling me to go kill myself. The mental image is absolutely delightful.
>>25380260 Technically yes, arguing on behalf of those enumerated rights is a prominent /pol/ ideology. And considering it's a political issue, it would in fact belong on /pol/.
Also, the right to bear arms prevents certain extents of seizure. It does not, however, disallow the regulation of said arms or else there wouldn't be the amount of regulation we have now.
>>25380544 Don't worry, I don't see it as a personal attack and I do believe he may have overreacted toward that. I was just pointing out the hilarious similarities of behavior in all of these vehemently opposed groups
>>25380612 I'm not the OP. I'm just mad at Dusedau for blocking me for something as simple as "Rude, much?". How retarded do you have to be to find that offensive? It was a valid comment, since he was indeed being much more rude than he had to be.
Are you faggots seriously arguing about whether my tweet was a personal attack or not? Who the fuck cares? The point is that Neal Dusedau is a hack who doesn't deserve to write for this show. He should go back to writing shitty Johnny Test episodes since that's the only thing people with his "skills" are capable of doing.
>>25380694 >shitty Spike episode >le ebin maymays episode: Discord edition Yeah, that is not the mark of a good writer. It seems writing unfunny jokes and unnecessary references is the only thing he's capable of doing.
You just gotta have common sense and lack of interest to block a unknown faggot in the internet who gives nothing but "criticism" of 2 fucking lines He doesnt care about you anymore, neither /mlp/, stop bitching and living of the internet
>>25380777 I'm not bitching about the fact that he blocked me on Twitter. I don't give a flying fuck about him. I'm bitching about him being a shitty Johnny Test writer who shouldn't be writing MLP episodes at all. And the worst thing is that he's triggered by fucking everything instead of actually responding calmly to criticism raised against his episodes.
>>25380645 It's not about whether he was "offended" or not, autist. He blocked you because you were an annoying faggot. If you're this unable to understand people, you should stick to lurking and observing.
>>25380824 >I'm not bitching about the fact that he blocked me on Twitter. >I'm just mad at Dusedau for blocking me for something as simple as "Rude, much?" You're clearly too upset to even know what you're saying. Just close the browser and come back later.
>>25380962 If this world were fair, he would die from a heart attack and the world would be rid of another useless idiot, but knowing how shitty this world is, he's probably going to live for another hundred years to keep bothering us with his shitty writing.
>>25381040 >How dare you block me on Twitter! For this heinous crime, you deserve to DIE! Oh man, I now hope I never get a girlfriend. I don't even want to think about what I would do if she rejected me or cheated on me.
>>25380924 Funny then that they came to this board when Heinessen went down to bitch and complain that the next archive wasn't going to support their board over these "disgusting horsefuckers". And if I recall that one screencap, they were very upset with a pony modification to a replica mass-produced firearm.
I actually liked this episode because it wasn't clear what was going to happen at the end and kept me intrigued, unlike last weeks ep where Cadences pregnancy was revealed early and the rest was just Pinkie making faces.
>>25381758 Yeah but it wasn't really good enough to re-watch anyway, maybe in a few years time. I think the mystery aspect was aimed at adults more so than kids, it made it more interesting than most straightforward episodes. The story didn't match the potential given by this different approach, (this was done better in Rarity Investigates and probably a few other eps too).
