I envy your ability to summarize things so well.
He’s sometimes been a bully, but he could do far worse if he wanted to. Most ponies probably wouldn’t be as well-restrained with that kind of power. So I have to give the Discord his due.
The problem is characterization.If he was characterized as this trickster god who just likes messing with people, and he completely owned it, then he’d be this loveable asshole.If he was characterized as this unfathomably powerful being trying to learn empathy, that would be compelling.

Since most of any discussion about him is the same “Discord did nothing/everything wrong” deal, with other subjects rarely showing up, it feels like it’s all there is to see.
