From what i learnt, there are more than 2 ways to not let them bein' asshole:
1) DO NOT make videos against them (not just you'll get thousand of dislikes, but also their Attenction); 2) DO NOT talk with them, with some sort of "Tone" (like: "I don't like Bronies", they'll immediatly take it as "i need a hug"...unless they're reasonable, and i hope some of them are); 3) DO NOT leave bad (or something like that) comments on some of their videos (except the porn ones, i think) or in their Site, it makes it worse; 4) Please, DO NOT make a COMPARISON between MLP and Sonic, it's gonna be really terrible.
I'm neutral when it comes to MLP. I get a bit irritated with how popular it is, but I don't hate it. Nor do I like it. If I did, I wouldn't be like those rabid fans you see who bash your opinion if you don't like the show. They're giving themselves a bad stereotype.
Yes because your just feeding the stereotype and making the rest of us fans look bad than it already is. Cut it out already and leave the anti groups be. If you wanted to know why those groups were created it's because your fellow Bronies tend to act like hypocritical stuck up jerks about it and even insult me and other MLP fans for not overly worshiping FIM or that we're 'females'(calling us 'fake geek girls') or that we prefer G1 over FIM or not support a certain pairing.
Did you even know that they even go as far as attacking this one former G1 animator on Facebook and his friend by using her her ponysona for their disgusting clopfic? comments.deviantart.com/1/2839…
One of the former Bronies was insulted by his fellow Bronieswho were his friends by calling him 'faggot' because he ended up liking G1 MLP over FIM and doing a crossover fanfic.
Another MLP female fan was at a Toys R Us and witnessed the two Bronies bullying this one little girl at the My Little Pony section. Why? Because she's a girl and they would attacked her for it for fearing that they'll 'ruin' FIM with their 'girlyness'.
