The Blackmail Brony Network: The evil empire that almost was by


"Hi, wanna be our bitch for 7 percent revenue share?"



Blackmail.
Extortion.
Cuntfacedness.

In the world of pony media, there are different levels and groups of people. There's the Sethistos who have real power and don't give a shit, there's the Drafts who have no real power and are crazy about it, and there's the HNs who are just here for the booze. Recently, a new mutation on pony media tried to lodge itself into the fandom, like a tumor, sucking off the healthy (in our case we'll put quotes around "healthy") cells around it. It's name "The Pony News Network" or "PNN" (Or "Brony Network" depending on the day).

What have they done? Not as much as they want to do if you don't stop them now.


So what exactly IS the "Pony Network"? To put it simply; it's a pyramid scheme that only exists to try and make money off of ad revenue by leeching off of existing pony fan's Youtube accounts, in exchange for being part of the "Brony Network". All of that would be fine...if it weren't a total sham.



The "Brony Network" aka The Pony Network, aka PNN, started up just a few months ago. Their main Youtube account has a grand total of 24 followers. Their main twitter account has...8 followers. And their "news" site has exactly one post made on it since July.  

So, now you're wondering why Horse News CARES about what is clearly a failure of a project. For lack of a better term, because of the extortion and blackmail allegedly taking place behind the scenes, and according to a source who was contacted about the startup, because the owner of BronyNetwork is attempting to gain a "monopoly over the fandom".

 Also the fact that the people behind it are trying to both edge out and simultaneously partner up with the likes of Everfree Network and Ponyville Live (both of whom have reportedly rejected them due to shadiness). 

The Pony Network came to EFN and PVL offering "partnerships" to work together to share ad revenue generated by pony youtube videos. They are reportedly a subset of "Showcase Edit" which does the exact same thing but on a larger scale. Now, anyone who has ever tried to monetize youtube knows that ad revenue is virtually zilch anyway. But PN wants to divide the profits with a tiny fraction going to the partners, a fraction going to themselves, and another chunk going to Showcase Edit.

They were turned down, because why would any account with ~30 Thousand subscribers share ad revenue with a "network" that only has 24 subscribers? Yeah even Draft isn't THAT stupid. 
So who WOULD join up with this "Youtube Network".

Well apparently Brony Aerospace who has "shit on everybody" "enough to blackmail them into partnering". That's right folks, the Brony Network plans on using the people at Brony Aerospace to BLACKMAIL youtubers into joining the network and giving up big percentages of their ad revenue.


But don't just take our word for it, have a listen to some recordings of an actual skype call with the head of the Brony Network "BronySinc". (This recording was made in a one-party consent state, meaning that only one of the people in the call needed to know it was being recorded).


The full recording is too long (~an hour) so we spared you a lot of awkward silence and mundane shit.

"Brony Aerospace has enough contacts to get us the big big Youtubers. Basically they have shit on everybody and that's enough to blackmail them into partnering with us." - BronySinc

Seriously.
This is what is taking place.

"Basically hold a monopoly on all the fandoms in the world"

That is some evil empire level shit right there.

"Along with that We have founding partner Omnipony. Well we don't officially have him, there's a dirty deal going right now and we're gonna get him."

Jesus, this guy has never heard of subtlety or tact has he?



So there you have it folks, damning evidence of almost unheard of levels of underhanded bullshit. Blackmailing Omnipony? Trying to conquer "all the fandoms in the world"? All for the MONEY no less? And clearly BronyAerospace is just as much to blame here as the rest.


Who else is in on this treacherous guild? Apparently Raborn, the convention chair for DerpyCon South, who recently had a dispute over recording between PNN and PVL. It is unknown how many bronies and groups are in on the conspiracy, but we do know that they were rejected by PVL. Apparently Silver Eagle was NOT willing to be their "bitch for 7 percent revenue share".

We do not know what is being used to blackmail Omni (~44 Thousand Subscribers) into joining this group, but we do wish him the best luck.

To Derpycon South, Brony Aerospace, and The Brony Network at large: you've been caught.

To the fandom at large: do not let the cancerous likes of these people take your fandom from you.

  5. Ok, Horse News. Time to beg the question to you. What does this mean for all of us? In plain English? Could this result in PNN being taken down? Can people actually file criminal charges against PNN since they did admit to blackmail and extortion? And hopefully, will it wind up making Horse News even more awesome than it already is right now?

    2. They're #HorseFamous with only 56 Twitter followers? They've never even had a featuring article on EqD - just a few copy & paste mentions in their nightly roundups.

  13. "it's a pyramid scheme that only exists to try and make money off of ad revenue by leeching off of existing pony fan's Youtube accounts"

    How exactly would they do that? And what could you blackmail a brony for? Being a brony? I don't think most people would care. The only people that do are the ones that are so concerned about being horse famous that they would do anything to get there. And all of these people are clinically insane anyway. So who the fuck cares?

    1. You kind of should care. Extortion, blackmail; generally racketeering IS still a crime.

  14. When i first saw this post i thought it was "OUR" BN but this is an "OTHER" BN sharing no common what so ever, Ours is a Livestream Community dedicated to MLP content and more; i'd be embarrassed by this and a disgrace to the fandom *tsk tsk*.

  15. Wow, this is 80s saturday morning cartoon villain level stuff. If they had moon laser and BronySinc had a robotic claw hand, a twisty mustache, and a white cat then it'd be perfect. It's hard to take them seriously when they have such a dismal following and such a stereotypical, cartoonish scheme.

  16. Wow holy shit. Brony Aerospace had reached out to me seeking help with PR a few months ago. I'm really glad I kept them at arm's distance now.

  18. Funny thing is, I created this network before BronySinc got his filthy paws on it. He took the network from me by stealing all the passwords and changing the emails on the accounts so I couldnt get them back. The other person who helped me found the group, Ty Trance, pussied out and let him do it. I fought it, cause I knew BronySinc would pull this kind of shit if he had any control and the whole reason I created the network was to get away from the crap that EFN and PVL live in. I laid the groundwork and got things started with affiliates and partners, and BronySinc basically said "I own the paid livestream, so I get to own the network too" even though the paid livestream was his before I even dreamed of the network. But this is the fandom's media is a dog-eat-dog game, desperate to find a way to grab money where there is none.

  19. Sounds more like want then ability. I've seen this before.Skype logs, emails, whatever as 'blsackmail'. It ends in stalemate at best and crippling for the party at fault at worst. They are flexing muscles that would work if they needed insurance to protect their past, it falls apart when this is your only capital gaining tactic.
    I almost pity them honestly, they are probbly a lot younger and more nieve to this than I am.
