I love my fellow bronies. But I agree with you - There are some that give us a bad name. There's nothing wrong about being VOCAL about something you like.. But everything requires a certain amount of tact. Besides that some of us are just.. belligerent.
I concur, some moderation definitely helps a lot since recently the media has been picking on us ever so viciously. As for the belligerent I can't really say much but least I know that there are people like you to balance things out evenly. So I'd say more power to you.
