I remember giving a perfectly logical answer to someone, explaining exactly what I like in the show and why it can be so popular. The person didn't listen a single word of what I said and just went "so you're just saying that the show is good that's not an answer". Since then I just go "fuck you" to anyone who asks why I love MLP. Seriously, when you ask a question, at least fucking listen to the answer.
Found this to be quite true.
