Regarding the Message from Hasbro
Feb 7, 2012 — Well everyone, something has finally happened. Either we were heard or there was nothing to worry about all along. There's absolutely no clarification yet aside from 'Hasbro is trying to figure out how to market toward us.' Mayhap all of this was simply a copyright claim regarding Derpy, as the speculation went.
Anyway, I want all of you to know: signing this petition was not a matter to be ashamed of, now that Derpy appears safe. We all thought something could happen to a pony we all love, and we took steps to try to save her. It was a noble cause. And most importantly, this petition was never, at any point, created of malicious intent toward Hasbro. In fact, it was wholly positive the entire time it ran. So thank you all for that - it was your comments that made it as positive as it was.
That said, the petition will shut down shortly. Derpy is safe, regardless of if it's because of us or not. Thank you all again for your support and kindness.
Hasbro: Thank you, and we love you!
