Some romance is fine so what is being requested on this board is reasonable.

Go over to some fanboards and Sony and all they want is couples sucking face and so on.  That is what I am alluding to.

PR, I belong to some fanboards and visit Sony often and don't see anyone making unreasonable demands in the romance department and I see no one asking for nothing but couples sucking face (which consequently is not the same thing as romance and in some cases is the opposite of it). So I really have no idea what you are alluding to.

And really just as an observation I have to say that as much as you seem to want to point the finger at Hogan critics for placing too much of the show's woes on the head writer you sure criticize DOOL fans A LOT for reasons I don't understand.

It's not all fans. Just the rabid fanbases that are never happy. The fickle fans who never seem to find any satisfaction with the show and live to dissect it left and right.

It's no one on here. I find these people on several other boards I lurk at and, yes, the sony boards is one of them. That board is the worst offender and I stand by my comments.

I know romance is not the same as "sucking face." That was more or less me trying to show the irrationality of some of the demands. It just seems like fans want one thing and then, when they get it, they don't like it and want something else resulting in the show becoming a clusterfuck because the fanbases never know what they want.

For example, let's use Bo and Hope. Say Days comes up with a fantastic story that will give them conflict in their marriage. Well, this example of compelling drama can never happen because fanbases get upset if Hope or Bo looks wrong at each other. The rabid fanbases hold the show back from telling compelling stories that other shows are able to because they have some leeway in that regard and it's sad. That is why I point the finger at those fans because, in my eyes, they are just as much to blame for the state of the show as the writers. How many rewrites has the show had to go through because they panicked as a result of fan boycotts, etc? The show has become a watered down mess at times because these fanbases have a fit if their couple so much as has a realistic argument. It's sad. I'm not saying there aren't some people in those masses that don't support good drama but the vast majority don't and that was my point.

Compare this to the DR and SON, where we crave drama and just good stories to entertain us. That was my point IMA.
