Well I guess that's it. Ive taken short breaks from Days before but after reading that article that's the end of Days for me. Days has been my soap for over forty years but Corday doesn't want me as a viewer.
I know you are a Haiden fan and don't like Bo and really don't like Hope with Bo, so I understand your disappointment on that front. But do you really think that integrating the vets into the show in a meaningful way and refocusing the show on core families is such a bad thing? Is that really worse than what this show has been doing in the last few years?

I just honestly don't understand how a 40 year fan can feel like Corday doesn't want you as a viewer when he's refocusing the show on long-term characters and their families instead of new faces. I think he's absolutely trying to please the long term viewers. Again, I get your disappointment with Haiden and if that's enought to make you give up the show, then that's fair enough. But I'm just not sure it's fair to say Corday doesn't want a 40 year fan as a viewer.
Haiden was the one thing that was keeping me watching. I could put up with a lot of the other crap as long as I was getting the couple I loved, even if they were barely on.

I'm not a Bope, Jarlena, Steve/Kayla, Justin/Adrienne fan, so focusing on these characters means nothing to me. I watched these couples during their era because there were other characters on at the time that I did like. The only return that had me at all interested was Gabi. Just because I'm a long time viewer doesn't mean I love all the so called "supercouples of the eighties and nineties. The only couples of that time I liked were Roman(Wayne)/Marlena, and Kim/Shane. Actually my favorite Days era was the seventies, before all the action/adventure stories.

Yes, I do feel that Corday doesn't want me as a viewer anymore. I don't care about the returns, and there are no characters/stories for me to tune in for. Except for Hope, and Bo's return cancel's that out.
