Story by Middy

We decided with the OC's owner to edit her out of the comic because apparently some people took it way too seriously and bullied him over it. More about the issue in this journal  Re. Farming And Grinding comicOK, apparently my recent comic Farming And Grinding sparked some 'controversy' I'd like to address. This journal is aimed mostly at people who 'had problems' with it. Not to 'everyone' so if you were fine with my recent comic you don't need to read it. I'd personally ignore the whole 'controversy' but sadly, it's not about me now.
First of all,
If you have ANY problems with comics in my gallery, please go with that to ME, not the writer, OC's owner or whoever else related. Don't you dare harrass my friends over comics I posted.
Secondly,
The MLP community has always been concerned with 'bullying', yet apparently this community isn't clear of them. Let me tell you that some tools decided to harrass the owner of an OC featured in the original version of the comic to the point where they first deactivated DA account and then... attempted suicide (luckily, not successfully at all - but the intention was grim, or hell, even the thought of that...). Those trolls might be so proud of t


In the background of Panel 2 you can see MrPOSSLQ's Longhaul and Magello's Southern Comfort. SC is not laughing at Longhaul this time, though.
The bandage on Mayor's head is a little callback to my old comic Don't Tell Her by Pony-Berserker -  it's kind of grim.

MLP and its characters belong to Hasbro. OC's belong to their respective owners. If you translate or repost, do it outside of DeviantArt. Thank you.

Well, I don't like this one because I was expecting something about grinding and I probably didn't get the humour in this deviation.
I also didn't see it as racism or such, as progressed...

...to the description and I was...
...well...
...very sad.

I don't know the previous version but if I got it right, it was a random OC instead of Rainbow Dash.
I don't know why you would feel offended about this comic - except if you would be Mayor Mare herself, which is a fictional character and maybe Applejack a little, but that's already shown and resolved in the comic itself.

Pony-Berserker, I'm so sorry for that person that became a target of seemingly mindless ragers.
If you know them by any chance, please give them a hug from me - a tight and long one that is. :hug:

Okay, what about for example Bon Bon? Or Cherilee? they don't farm and are Earth pony. I think there are also a couple of nobles in Canterlot that are Earth Ponies, and let's not talk about Filthy Rich and Spoiler Rich. Or Mr and Ms. Cake, and Pinkie Pie the Element of Laughter.

As you noticed, many, many earth ponies work at production of food or other basic products. Note how Cheerilee's cutie mark is a bunch of flowers... Filthy Rich is rich because he provides... food to ponies on large scale?

Do they even show that in the show?

They weren't laughing much when the planted legal documents sprouted brand-new legislation!
Mostly because the laws were poorly-written, restrictive, and mostly redundant. It turns out that's not the best way to make laws.

i recently re-watched the episode "ponyville confidential", and there's a scene where it's revealed that the mayor dyes her hair-it's actually PINK!

People getting offended and over-reacting
People saying they don't get why people are offended
Then there's just me, who doesn't get the joke and has been searching the comments for clues

Neither do I, this whole situation is absolutely laughable and yet something horrible almost happened because of it.
I die a little on the inside when I read about stuff like this happening T_T people can be so brutal and so dumb and yet well meaning.

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

May I see the unedited version so I can compare?


And, No, I will not get offended by this. Those guys who got offended are so pathetic. And that's the nicest thing I can say about them.

The difference is just an OC was replaced by RD. People mostly had problems with OC being not nice to a canon character, I think.
