okay... WHAT.I don't understand how a fad can be marked as spam. Ah well, I suppose I'll go ahead and help them. I'm glad I caught this as soon as it was posted.
Well that always happens. Trolls are trolls, it's like when the episodes got deleted on Youtube when it got flagged.On the bright side, it just means it will back up to full size very very quickly.

It's rebuilding, but we need your help. Please come and like it. Doom on you, trolls and haters. I used to just ignore you, but you have now earned a permanent position on my list. There will be consequences and repercussions.We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail. Like Philomena, we will arise from the ashes stronger than ever before.
Way to go, Twatbook.
Seriously screw facebook, they always do stuff like this. They delete groups promoting free speach, going against dictatorships. If they care so little about that , why would they care a iota about an obscure fandom? I would try google+ and see if it's any better or at least less bad.
Wait, do people not check these things before they act on those flags? The people who run Facebook can't have that system be automated, can they?
Dude. Y'all just need to NOT USE FACEBOOK. It's awaste of your precious lives. ANd you're likely never going to meet your so-called "friends".Ditch Facebook. Go back to regular life where you dont have to be on the computer 24-7
@TenchiFreak5I doubt they could run anything so massive any other way. Their "help" page ... doesn't.
Thanks for the post! This will really help us!!
The time to counterattack is later. For now, we will help rebuild.But be warned, haters and trolls. You can kick us, but you can't kick us down.
Thank you Seth for posting this! ^-^
Damage control first. Consequences and repercussions later." - best served cold", and all that...
@TenchiFreak5I think it's semi-automated, with just the final call coming down to the average guy sitting in the offices. there was probably a flagging raid, and when you have stuff to do, a group with a ton of spam flags just looks like a no brainer.
Oh, Facebook! Why are you still relevant?
and this is why i dont got a facebook profile lol
lets not retaliate. the last thing we need is to give facebook legit reason to ban us.
Bronies rarely forget, but always forgive. Let's rebuild and move along, y'know?
@Adrian BronyI'm not mad at Facebook. They were just the instrument through which the blow was struck. The people behind it are the ones who have attracted my wrath.
I actully think google+ may be a good idea.
@Kjh242but I have no clue how "groups" work on google+
someone ponify the not-okay face NAO. This calls for it.
brony day? We're still on this shit?
My personal opinion still stands.Fuck FaceBook. Its a website for e-peen mofo's who act like they have lives by posting some retarded ass photos of thier fake ass so called lives. Its a sorry excuse for a social networking site, especially for MLP fans. I recommend FlankBook far over the douchebaggery that is FaceBook. FlankBook has better management (who arnt effing flag monkies) and a way better social community that ACTUALLY socializes.
it was 4000+it really sucks too... we shall rebuild!
@Adrian BronyMe neither, i already have an account there but ive been unable to create something there. I already have linked other stuff. Greets.
its a shame we got deleted, but we are bronies, we shall rebuild!!!!!!!
My only worry is the trolls will keep getting us banned. But I will rejoin as soon as I get home tonight since the LIKE button doesn't work on my cellphone for some odd reason. In the meantime I hope Celestia banishes everyone involved in getting the page deleted to the moon.
@:: Scarcity ::it's not so bad in some cases. plus, a social network is only as good as it it popular, unfortunately. no point making a friendster account anymore, for instance.
@The Dread Pirate RobertsI made a speech like that on the new page a few hours ago, xD
I didn't even know this page even existed. Thanks trolls LOL.
Damn trolls can't leave us be. Silly trolls, they should know by now resistance is futile ^_^
@Adrian BronyGroups don't work on Google+http://blogs.forbes.com/chunkamui/2011/07/15/why-google-is-poised-to-fail/?partner=yahootixAt least, not yet anyway.
"If you strike us down, we will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine..."
@fagbuttsWhy the fuck are you here then?
Annnnnnnnnnnnnd this is why I don't use facebook, even tho my friends do ;p
Wait...Is there stuff on Facebook that ISN'T spam?
Wait, it's brony day? I forgot and missed everything, and it's almost midnight over here. CRAAAAAAAAAAAAP! :'(
well at least we know Trolls are the enemies of Pony's.. i swear sometimes i wished accessing the internet would have an IQ test or something... that way the Trolls would live internet'less in their basement.
I could say this day is crappy...But I got a hat 3 hours ago and facebook is a big piece of s***(sorry for the language but I didn't find another word) anyway.So...I won't say anything about it.
Soon everyone will be trained to be professional, unbeatable, amazing trolls which produce amazing things, and due to they are already trolls they cannot be trolledThose which cannot be trained and cannot give good publicity or even worser, pulls down the fandom into looking bad, shall be expungedSoon all furries and rule 34 about My Little Pony will be deleted and expunged. Only artists such as EuroBeatBrony, ImNotaCleverPony,CSIMadMax And all makers of well lip synced videos such as PonyCraft 2 and Fluttershy's swearing in Pinkie's song shall represent the bronies and their material will be known to come out of broniesPeople will wonder, who made these excellent videos? and the bronies will answer ''Why, WE DID, the BRONIES''Soon the group known by the title of BRONIES shall be known as a group of amazing professional artists which know how to love and tolerate and do not get trolled! and NEVER QUIT!! A BRONY Will be a great person which actually deserves the title, AND IS DAMN PROUD OF BEING A BRONY!
Yeah at the moment on G+ if you want a group you just throw everyone from that group into the same circle, and everyone involved does the same. If they want to.All G+ really needs to do to handle groups is allow you to mass-add people from an opt-in list, it doesn't need a separate structure.
How sad. Well, I hope the mod didn't do it on purpose, and these things do happen. C'est la vie.
I've always hated "The Facebook" but this is BLASPHEMY!!!CHARGE UP THE ORBITAL FRIENDSHIP CANNON!!!
Much as I would like to tell Facebook to get bent right now, someone on the new page made a good point - we can't retreat from Facebook. It will only encourage haters and trolls to keep following us around and smashing down our pages. I say we rebuild it. I say we make it better, stronger and faster. Well, more loving and tolerant, at any rate. ^_^
@Adolf HitlerAnd then only the bronies with blond hair and blue eyes shall be worthy of being called bronies.
Are you guys seriously still using Facebook? All the 4chan bronys have already migrated to Google+Post your emails and I can send you all an invite.
Odd... but no matter! We'll take over Google+ with renewed vivacity!
The day when we forget how to love and tolerate is the day when we die as a community.
Hey look, it's Youtube's false flagging all over again on facebook. The bigger and more corporate a website is, the more evil and incompetent it is.
I'd join google+, but I don't know where to get an invite.
The only reason I value facebook is so I can see what my irl friends are up to. Other than that, I avoid it like the plague. Use last.fm or something instead.
>Implying anyone actually cares about Facebook
What Bullshit is this? on Brony day of all days? very suspicious. Fucking hate facebook
*pfft* S'alright, we're all on g+ now anyway
I don't like most internet meme's but this is an obvious case of haters gonna hate. I feel bad for all the ponies who lost any hard work and dedication used to do what they were doing.
Four hours after the attack, and we are partying and almost up to 1000 likes!You can't stop the Friendship!What now haters? LOL!
Why are the people who hate friendship is magic not tolerate and bash others?>:( I will help.
Thanks for posting, time to re-like.
That's one of the reasons why I became a Brony. No need for social networks, when I can meet good people (loving, tolerating, understanding...) in real life.
@Anon: Ain't no one going to be taking over Google+ until it supports groups.In fact, lack of group support is really going to kill it considering that better group support was one of things that propelled Facebook over MySpace.
Y U NO FLANKBOOK?
@AnonymousThis. Or Rainbow Dash Network.
@Anonymouslol @ you saying this in a blog comment on the internet, what with your >implying using one website means you're on the computer 24/7
@fagbutts ... GRRRR....
Can't you just contact the Facebook admins and explain the situation? I was under the impression that Zuckerberg doesn't actually delete anything.
I would like to announce; I do not use facebook.I would also like to announce; I do not like facebook.For many reasons, including this.Good luck wasting your time on there.0.o or maybe you could just not use Facebook...
@Anonymouswhat? its a dumbass idea, and there is no reason to try 'take over' shit.It just gets us negative attention and wastes time and effort.So don't GRRR me for being skeptical of your newest ponychan bollocks
did they contacted facebook and asked them to re open the group?its the same with youtube since the stuff is semi-automated many people flagging it just because of hate closes it and facebooks does it just in case (same with youtube) when you have THAT many users you have to understand why such system exist in the first placeand dear bronies please don't discriminate facebook users, why you would go and say facebook users are X thing but get angry when people say bronies are Y thing? its nonsense and just goes with the infinite cycle of hate we are better than thatso dont go around hatin or discriminating pretty please?
HA! I dont even use facebook! Yuri: 1 Facebook: 0!
@Kjh242 agreed, Hopefully they will finish beta testing soon
Facebook has little to no human interaction at the customer service level. Much of the functionality is automated. With a strong enough mass of trolls, the system may have accepted the spam flag as legit, just due to numbers. This kind of abuse has been rampant on facebook, and I refuse to support Facebook for that among many, MANY other reasons, most involving privacy rights.Situations like this need to be resolved. My suggestion, is to attempt to have the group reinstated (you must try this first). When Facebook fails you (they almost always do), add to the growing list of BBB (Better Business Bureau) complaints. If enough complaints happen, they could be investigated for failure to provide adequate customer service response when their service fails the user. It could prompt forcing them to restructure their customer service operations.If I used Facebook, I'd join the group, but since I refuse to use the service, I can't join. I will gladly continue participating here, where I know trolls can simply be ignored, and where we know our fellow bronies hang out too.
Bleh. Oh well, roll on Diaspora.. for the time being, liked once again.
come to google+!
Gnyargh!Oh, by the way I'm new around here. Hi! :)
You know every time I find a reason to use Facebook I also find 10 reasons to stay as far away as humanly possible from it. It's just not worth it when stuff like this happens all the time.
Not really a Facebook user myself, but dang. Kinda ridiculous that such a large group was simply deleted. But they'll rebuild and things will be back to normal. Unless they delete it again. :<
It is indeed sad that the trolls had a victory in their campaign against that which is loving and tolerant. But we should keep strong, for they have won but a skirmish. We should not only rebuild on Facebook, but also expand to Google+, increasing our members and making us stronger. then before. The Bronies Facebook may have faltered, but it has not fallen!However, let us not seek revenge, dear brothers and sisters. Let us ignore them, and if they will not be ignored, then we silence them until such a time they can will raise themselves up to our level. After all,it is not tolerance of hurtful acts that we preach, but tolerance of the difference of opinion,to bite our tongue instead of lashing out. It is not to substitute law and order, but to help maintain it.And if a Brony community is destroyed, let us rebuild it plus 20%. Each time. Every time.
^this. a million times this
Truly the only way I will submit to creating a facebook account is if the entirety of facebook is reconstructed into a kingdom of love and tolerance, aka facebook ponified.
@AnonymousHave you tried FlankBook?
Lol it's a lession for all. Making something under totalitary FBI creation isn't safe thing.
Ha ! Even more reason to never use that horrible waste of life that is facebook !
Since when does Facebook care about spam? Don't see them doing anything about all the programs that flood everyone you've ever met with so many pointless messages that they can't read what their friends are actually saying.
This is why I prefer Twitter over Facebook.
@RockburghI second this.Not to mentioned the tons of abandoned groups full of spambots.
They did it again! The replacement page has been deleted now as well.
If all else fails my pony friend made this site:http://bronyhaven.ning.com/
Screw Fagbook. Use PonySquare!
