I was really into ponies for awhile. I avidly browsed /mlp/ from its inception all the way until the Scruffening in 2013. After the board was ruined, I stopped browsing /mlp/ and subsequently stopped watching the show altogether.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss it a little, as shitty as it was. The board was mostly /b/tards and the ponyfags who were exiled from /co/ so there was a lot of drama and shitposting threads that were dumb but fun.
There were also the tripfags who everybody hated like Thomas Westley and RainboomCrash. Fucking RainboomCrash.
