Blarg...

So if I made any future rants, would you make a response to defend the analysis I don't like? Or did you just wanna cover up the criticisms made towards you?

I don't really see the video I have produced as me 'covering up the criticisms made towards you'. Since I have of drawn attention to the videos you've made, rather than trying to avoid them.

On future videos n such. I generally much prefer to speak about stuff directly attributed to or from me. Since hopefully I should be of some authority & relevance to the claims and counter claims being made... As I said at the end of the video I would be more than happy to have some proper discourse of the show, my reviews or critique in general. I would much prefer a proper dialogue than us talking past one another. If in future I feel like I need to talk on some of your content, I probably will.

For now though I feel that I would most likely be beating a dead horse if I went over more of your content. Oh look guys.. more insubstantive stuff and it's not even related to me! Hope you got the idea after another 30 mins of video!

Hello Byter,

There seems to be a concerning trend in the Analysis Community recently, which bears some discussion before it gets out of hand. It seems that Digibrony has stepped down from his role as Moderator on the /r/MLPAnalysis subreddit, leaving you as the only person on the Mod list, so I thought that this might be of some interest to you.

The Analysis Community generally has a fairly good-natured environment, where people can express their honest (and often conflicting) opinions and critiques while maintaining a friendly atmosphere. However, there seem to be a number of people here and there who take a fairly hostile demeanour towards reviewers who disagree with their opinions (I would say that you are probably familiar with more than a few people of this description). Discussions with these individuals tend to revolve around fairly aggressive Ad Hominem arguments, rather than talking about the show itself.

Normally, I would be inclined to ignore such personal attacks, but I have noticed that they are beginning to make their way onto the Analysis subreddit. Of particular note is this rather unpleasant video from a relatively new reviewer: a half-hour ramble of Ad Hominem attacks and personal insults, which was posted on the subreddit:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkgaES…

This individual intends to make individual videos attacking the reviewers that he dislikes (Cuddlepug, Mage, GoldenFox, Digibro, Tommy Oliver, and yourself), and will presumably post them on the subreddit. I find this prospect somewhat worrying. The Analysis Community is meant to be an open exchange of ideas, and I always enjoyed the sense of camaraderie that we had in the community, even when disagreeing over an episode. However, if these hostile personal attacks become more popular (and I have seen similar videos from other reviewers, such as Mr Enter), I am concerned that we could see the community split into factions, launching Ad Hominem attacks back and forth over differences in opinion. It would be rather unfortunate for our community to start focusing on personal disagreements, rather than on the episodes themselves.

We do have a rule in the Analysis subreddit that only videos containing analysis can be posted (which should rule out videos like the one that I linked above), but with only one Moderator these videos tend not to be filtered out. What would you say to adding a few Moderators to the subreddit for general maintenance? Perhaps a note in the Rules section saying something to the effect of "no personal attack videos" would also be helpful.

Let me know what you think. Am I reading too much into this matter? Or is there genuine room for concern? :)

After he admitted to highly liking MrEnter, JoshScorcher, and TravestyOfReason, I clicked dislike and turned off the video.

Well if Digi has left the analysis subreddit I certainly agree that we should have more moderators. I will be honest and say that I don't use redit and that I asked to be a mod just so there was someone else people could turn to.

I know this is much to ask but perhaps you should suggest some guys on reddit who should become moderators and could you provide me some links to their profiles and some examples of their activity?

Since clearly I am not exactly the right person to be making this decision (since I should appoint active redit users who have the right attitude (and I don't know who's active or who is the good people)) and I can't exactly just give you the full rights to rule things your way without a little proof.

I am a little busy atm. So I don't have the time currently to view his video. (Will try to view it later)
I don't disagree in general that this community should not be full of spite and bile. But as ever there's nuances and difficulties with trying to make that happen.

It seems that you do have some passion for the community (enough to leave a long, pretty well worded response). I do want to apolagize that I haven't had the time for the reddit or to properly respond to you.
However looking forward I hope that I have tried to make the path forward clear. Need new mods. I wanna make a good decision, at least initially. How our community should act... hmm nice idea but details and I am a little busy right now (to debate or discuss it in full).
Also full disclosure, I have recently made a rebuttal video that has offended many people because I started it with some (intentionally uncharacteristic) swearing. So I am not sure if I would also be someone who you would now also look at as being bileful...
