I apologize if you got that impression. That wasn't the purpose of my post. I was sharing my experience.
I'm a fan of James Scott. I have been from day one, I ain't going to lie. And yes, I did chose to spend my money not only to see him but to support a charity that I believe in. I think it's amazing that he has been able to weather many storms and last on a show infamous for getting rid of people at the first hint of controversy.
I didn't say he was going to cure cancer or that he was Ghandi. But was I excited to meet him? Of course! I'm a soap fan and I think he's fantastic actor (my own opinion, I don't expect anyone else to share it) and I think he's a damned fine looking man. I gushed about him. I kind of thought that's what fans generally do, get happy to meet the ones they adore on a television show. I've gushed elsewhere about meeting Thaao, Brandon, Bryan, Darin, Matt and Lauren (I didn't get a chance to meet Nadia unfortunately). This was my first encounter with soap actors, but not my first encounter a celebrity event. I attended the Kennedy Center Honors a few years back and met a few people in the biz and I have a relative who is a high-profile person in business and philanthropy, so I do have a teeny bit of a handle on reality believe it or not. But the soap event was a far more approachable situation from a fan point of view than the other event.
I did say, I think I did at least, that my conversation with other fans was not scientific. It was my observation. I posted it here so it's up for anyone to question it. If I went overboard, sorry, but I couldn't help it. I'm a fan.
But no, I wasn't trying to say that opinions posted online aren't as important, or null and void, as those expressed by offline viewers. Maybe it read that way, but again, it wasn't my intent. It's hard to know what is the right thing say. Perhaps the best route is to keep my opinions to myself.
I do plan to attend another event in the future because this one was so fun. But I'll refrain from posting about it, at least here. I had a great time. That's the short story.
