No, but that’s a common misconception. I actually liked Pinkie in Griffon the Brush Off, oddly enough. She had every right to do all that, and actually was right in the end. Granted, Dash pointing her to all the pranks that she set up and then claiming they were random was total BS, but Pinkie was in the right and not especially annoying, past being Pinkie Pie.
I actually posted Gilda (partly) because I used to dislike Pinkie a lot more than I do now, not the other way around.

And I initially assumed the Gilda was because you disliked Fluttershy, and then after hearing your opinion on pinkie I arrived at the other conclusion.
I guess I can’t accurately predict a person’s thoughts.

Having characters bully Fluttershy as a means to establish them as bad guys is manipulative by the writers, especially when sympathetic characters can treat her far worse with no one calling for their heads.
The way snooty aristocracy is treated as an acceptable target. I’ve read or heard about fanfics where their purging or threats thereof being treated as a good thing and it disgusts me, especially since this is a show where one character waited a thousand years to try and redeem her sister despite the fact that she tried to the destroy the kingdom twice and kill the heroes. They may not be nice, but these jackasses have actually done less to cause widespread harm and destruction than the heroes have.

The CMC pretty much intentionally cause more harm than Gilda, Trixie or Iron Will ever did. And they can’t pull the “but we also saved Equestria!” card,

After the Alicorn Amulet incident, I’d say Trixie’s out of the running for that one (though the way the characters are written, it’s only a matter of time before they blow up the dam or something).
I’ve already stated my position on Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon compared to the CMCs.

She didn’t actually hurt anyone or cause much in the way of property damage, besides which she was possessed. Compare to the CMC rigging the parade float to go out of control and drive off a cliff…

You mean aside from Snips and Snails, or Rainbow Dash when she forcibly mutated her? Plus all the psychological trauma of enslaving the town. I count Trixie’s actions as being like someone who knows they’re drunk, but decides to get behind the wheel of the car anyways. I do paint Luna with the same brush. They’re not completely responsible, but they were doing a bad idea and could have caused a lot more damage than they did.
Rainbow Dash didn’t blow up the dam. The dam was shoddily constructed.

I don’t think any of those people were “hurt” by those things, as in pain and damage. And this is the town that’s been razed by parasprites, overtaken by Discord, brainwashed by the local librarian, etc.; I’d hardly think a day living under Trixie’s rule would faze them,
Also, we don’t know if Trixie had any idea what the amulet actually did beyond “give power”. Even know-it-all Twilight didn’t and had to resort to a “secret” book to know. I’d say it’s more like blindly grabbing an energy drink to stay alert without realizing it’s one of those redbull+vodka things. Neither do we know what happened with Luna, whether she “went dark” intentionally or spiraled into a depression or what.

I think that Luna is waaaaaay overrated and gets too much attention.  
I’m sick of Mando and Living Tombstone and don’t like their music at all.  
I love Derpy but absolutely hate Derpy x Doctor Whooves shipping.  
I hate all shipping shipping anyway (but especially Derpy x Doctor).  
I find the amount of pony porn ridiculous and outrageous.  
I am also not fond of portraying Derpy as being obsessed with muffins.

I like pretty much every episode, but sometimes I dislike an episode the first time because I’ve missed something, then on re-watching it I realise what the point was.  
For example “Family Appreciation Day” I was quite against how AppleBloom was so against her grandmother! Watching it a second time the scene where Granny Smith wows the schoolroom was just immense :D
My biggest gripe is pacing. Actually the one thing I like about MLP so much is that the pacing is so good 95% of the time, but there are a few episodes that just feel rushed, as if they could have done with more than 22 minutes, or a two parter.  
“Magical Mystery Cure” Was the biggest offender or bad pacing IMO, and it was a shame as it could have been such a good story if it had been given the whole episode, and the Twilicorn stuff given another episode (IE the whole story as a two parter)
My favorite episodes are(In no particular order)  
“Magic Dual”  
“Look Before you Sleep”  
“Two many Pinkie Pies”  
“The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000”*  
“Secret of my excess”  
And probably my favourite episode:  
“Party of one”
*I pretend that the apples are magically pre-fermented so that it’s actually cider they are making and not applejuice that the Yanks call cider

I forgot one of the most important/unpopular points of mine:  
I’m not gay for Braeburn, i never was and i will never be  
and i don’t really believe on this “Everybody is gay for Braeburn”virus, it must be some kind of joke, it needs to be, no one suddenly becomes gay because of a handsome character.
Not a Llama - Happy April Fools Day!

Trixie is the worst character in the show, next to Fluttershy.  
Gilda is the best minor antagonist.  
Luna is worst princess. Ever. Of all time.  
Fluttershy always cries.
Not a Llama - Happy April Fools Day!

Twilight is better than Rainbow Dash.  
Some episodes completely contradict the moral of friendship.  
I hate Equestria Daily and Sethisto for making the site into a Trixie shrine.  
I will never accept Trixie as a good character.

The “Background Six” is overrated.  
Cadence is best princess.  
Luna is overrated.  
King Sombra was an okay villain.  
Season 3 is so far the worst season in the show.  
Wonderbolts Academy was one of the worst episodes of that season.  
Flitter is better than Cloud Chaser.  
Soarin is better than Spitfire.  
Gilda was a good antagonist.  
Twist isn’t that bad of character.  
I hate Braeburn.  
My Little Dashie was a mediocre fanfic.  
I hate Molestia.  
I prefer hetero ships over gay/lesbian ships.  
I dislike most brony music.  
The whole “Scootaloo is a chicken, Rarity is a marshmallow, etc.” thing was never funny.
I have a lot more but that’s what I can think of at the moment.
