It might not really matter what I say now. People hate me now, and I can't even ask them why because they think I hate them so much, they've blocked me. I never wanted any of this. No one did. There was no communication, and now it's all fallen to pieces.
I don't know who will read this. If you're from E-Qual-Estria, TheRealEqual-estria, or anywhere else, it doesn't really matter to me. What matters is that apparently I have hurt some people, and that's inexcusable.
I began to create peace--I wanted to give any artists who'd been offended or confused in any way by 's rules a place where they could place their art, with no restrictions as far as content. The name was chosen so that those whose art had been displaced by E-Qual-Estria could easily recognize it as a haven for their art. I thought (naively) that the conflict could end there.
Sadly, the actions of individuals are outside of my control. I can only speak for myself when I say that I intended no harm--but clearly this conflict has caused some, and I need to at least attempt to resolve some of it before I, or anyone else, hurt another person.
First of all, I repudiate any and all trolling, if such is occurring, against E-Qual-Estria. No matter what anyone's opinion is on the subject, E-Qual-Estria's policies are what they are. There is no need for us to continue questioning them, as the same questions have been asked of them and answered repeatedly. Insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result. To be fair, they have always stated that anyone who dislikes their group doesn't have to be involved--and so, simply don't become involved.
Next, I apologize profusely to and if any comments I or anyone else opposing E-Qual-Estria made have personally hurt you. I, nor anyone I would respect, would ever try to intentionally personally harm you. If our disagreements have become too vociferous, I believe that neither party can accept all of the blame--if the nomenclature of my group offended you, then I am sorry. If anyone supporting my group or opposing yours has offended you, then I am sorry as well. I also apologize to any members of either group who may have been flamed as a result of this conflict. There is no reason for that, and I am sure that Sunlight1236 and SiliconGlass will agree with me that none of us need to resort to such tactics to make our points.
I will not, however, withdraw this grievance against E-Qual-Estria: I do not appreciate assumptions being made about my personality based upon a petty disagreement we have had. From the journal "E-QUAL-Estria: the True Origin" there is one quote that unnerves me: "During all of this troll attack, I was attacked by a severe medical condition and was under the pounding stress that I could have "died" from it- but they didn't care about "us" and if they had known about it they would be the ones who'd dance on my grave singing "We won"."
I have noticed a few people accuse you of lying about the illness--those accusations are unacceptable. However, that you generalize all who oppose you under a despicable category that can only apply to a few--if any--breaks my heart. I don't know a single person like that, and the idea that you think I hate you that much tears me to pieces.
Let me close this by saying that all conflicts here MUST END. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. No one fighting for the last word, no one trying to be heard at the last minute. That will only bring more conflict. No one person is at faulteveryone involved shares blame. But we are all bronies. Like a family--we might argue sometimes, but we can't forget what we have in common. We love ponies.
And that's not about to change.
If tl;dr, summary: Hating is wrong. We need to get over ourselves and stop the fighting.
