Please don't shoot me on site D:
In all seriousness, I wouldn't consider myself a "true" brony like I used to be. I still like the show and the community can produce some great stuff, but the weird stuff started flowing in to where I frequented most and I just sorta left. I do treasure the friends and connections I made back in the day though.
I used to watch the show, wasn't active at all in the community. Though I am in fact the OP of Head-Fi's MLP thread. Not that that means much.
I have quite a few brony friends. But in the end I stopped watching the show because it became boring to me.
