    while this is a valid point, it doesn't negate the fact that friendly friend didn't simply ignore the post
    replying to a troll in this sort of way only serves to promote the commotion
    and while i agree that his first couple posts in the thread were conducive to good forum behavior,
    friendly friend has clearly failed to pass the first rite of community integration; namely a simple dispute with another member
    pyrofyr is allowed to post his opinion regarding the fandom since he was not attacking friendly specifically
    furthermore i could hazard a guess that pyro's post, while seemingly laden with vitriol, was more of an aggressive chide rather than a serious attack
    but when it comes to the dystopia friendly friend has somehow constructed, this is unacceptable
    its created a series of posts from friendly friend with a common mindset, whereas pyrofyr's posts were erratic and unrelated
    pyrofyr spoke for himself, and the appropriate reaction to the break in the thread would have been a simple private message
    but instead friendly friend escalated it into a debate that took over the entire thread, which is completely inappropriate to civil discussion

    He turned a light discussion into a debate on the silliest subject possible. The thread before his entrance was what you expected from a MLP thread. Related images posted, people admitting why they liked the show with legit reasoning while others couldn't understand. Then of course the first post he makes resembles activism. An argument, citations, proof and was hilariously Jehovah's witness-like. He came searching for a debate and when I made a joke by contrasting his large post on a topic not worth while, he jumped in it.

    Pinning it on Pyro is like saying you should blame him for responding to an invitation. Activism will bring in serious debate, and it's comical that it was about cartoon ponies. But hey, some people love their ponies.

    Guilty of troll feeding yes.

    However, guilty of specifically feeding the troll with the intent of spiraling into a debate would be questionable. It's hard to discern friendly's actual intentions off just his posts. You can suppose this, and decompose that, but in the end it's all logic that does not have a completely solid basis of truth to fall back on. Time will tell with new members, and the MLP thread has come back under control so peace should return. Hopefully future discussion in there will be about the latest episodes since a new season is currently airing. Any drama he has caused has dissipated, and it will only be sparked again if someone has the audacity to try and troll the MLP thread again. We've had worse members before, friendly can live in the pony thread if that's where he likes to be for a while. I'm sure he will get bored and come out eventually :P.

    I definitely started it, but just for the record, I posted that first linked post in Dae's WoT without anyone in mind, just actually reflecting from having someone dump pony porn in a thread on another forum right before :<

    Rather suspicious with his time of arrival. I question the identity of Friendly Friend.

    Just like emailbox! :D

    Also after being nice to him, and telling him to post in other sections, he sort of kept going and calling out pyro, which I kept hinting at him not to do. I think he's fishing for the negative attention.

    Hmm, okay so Pyro admits that he started it, but Friendly Friend is responsible for not ignoring Pyro and adding to whatever the hell happened.

    Okay, but must we keep calling him a "troll"?

    Confirmed for not reading my post.
    He is a troll.

    I didn't start ****, I voiced my opinion, it happened to be a negative one, and his was positive. Instead of either moving on, accepting the fact that people have dissenting views, or accepting the fact our views come from different areas and try to accept it, he pursued. I would have left it purely where it was and you could have had a pony*** thread 40 pages long, it's not exactly like I post in threads more than two or three times anymore.

    Alas, however, he handled it poorly whether I was a troll or was serious (I was serious), he probably went with the worst way to handle someone with a differing opinion on the internet, he'll want to change that if he wants to be on the internet and not laughed out when the pony**** blows over.

    Edit: Phoenix hit the nail on the head.
