* In an inversion of the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' reaction above, he received so much hassling by bronies to drop everything he was doing and cover ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' immediately, along with big doses of racism, sexism, and spoilers, that he took the show off his list entirely and now refuses to ever watch it, since it would be impossible to separate the show itself from his experience with the fans.

** His deconstruction of Silaran's reasoning in "The Darkness and the Light", utterly denouncing the idea that he was a victim by pointing that even if all he did was fold shirts, he still willingly participated in the colonization of Bajor and and knowingly benefited from the horrific oppression of the Bajorans.
