** Equestria Daily is forever associated with making the infamous "Background pony" joke about [[EnsembleDarkhorse Applejack]], that and the joke later on about Applejack's implied dead parents, to the point where commentators were arguing whether or not [[SeriousBusiness people should feel sorry for fictional characters]].

** This also applies to fans of humanized ponies (and the artists who draw them). Aside from once-in-a-blue-moon art threads focusing on them, humanizations are conspicuously absent from Equestria Daily.

** Similarly, stories [[RonTheDeathEater demonizing Princess Celestia]] used to get through very easily and perpetuated the Fanon versions of her over the [[TheHighQueen show version.]] In contrast, it is much easier to find stories and works of [[DracoInLeatherPants Nightmare Moo getting a sympathetic]] portrayal despite being the opposite of show and comic canon.

* DoubleStandard: Ship-fics involving lesbianism normally have no problem getting posted on the site unless they're ''really'' explicit (or just bad). Male/Male fics however are more difficult, though they do appear from time to time.

** Creators who get subpar work featured on the site (either due to submitting it without realizing it isn't that good, or due to someone else submitting it for them) are going to end up the subject of mockery due to a ColbertBump resulting in a flood of negativity.

%%*** She does - and yet, she doesn't. It's... complicated.** For a while, fan fictions submitted to the site were subject to some ''very'' biased pre-readers, who accepted things based on their own personal preferences; many good stories were rejected simply for having LesYay shipping, being human in Equestria stories, or a myriad of other reasons that aren't stated in the rules. And, of course, there were pre-readers accepting ''anything'' they happened to like or that was written by someone they knew. The mods are much stricter now about pre-readers actually following the rules, but they still get a lot of hate as though the change never occurred. ** Creators who get subpar work featured on the site (either due to submitting it without realizing it isn't that good, or due to someone else submitting it for them) are going to end up the subject of mockery due to a ColbertBump resulting in a flood of negativity.

* FandomRivalry: At one point in time, The site had a ban on all ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''-related content due to some irrational hatred between a VocalMinority of bronies and fans of the ''Sonic'' series (though it would seem that things have cooled off since then). ** Sort-of-Justified: The Sonic fanbase has a '''''terrible''''' reputation amongst greater nerd-dom, and many bronies - mindful of their own poor reputation - go out of their way to deny any association with them. Same thing with furries.

* FandomRivalry: At one point GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Equestria Daily regularly reports on new episodes of the Japanese dub being released. You'd think that this is because the show is popular in time, The site had a ban on all ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''-related content Japan, but as it turns out, the Japanese dub is actually more popular outside of Japan than it is in Japan, which is due to some irrational hatred between a VocalMinority of bronies and fans of the ''Sonic'' series (though it would seem that things have cooled off since then). ** Sort-of-Justified: The Sonic fanbase has show being overshadowed by a '''''terrible''''' reputation amongst greater nerd-dom, and many bronies - mindful plethora of their own poor reputation - go out of their way to deny any association with them. Same thing with furries.other shows featuring the same themes.

I'm pretty sure that them having a ban on sonic content is no longer true, as a picture featuring Sonic and Rainbow Dash was used as a nightly roundup header.
