Precisely. Viwers certainly weren't tuning out Luke Spencer, a rapist, was at his prime during the eighties. In fact, his wedding to Laura remains the highest rated hour in American soap opera history.

Well, people are still in love with Sami Brady the rapist, Jack Deveraux the rapist, Luke Spencer the rapist, Todd Manning the rapist (well, some, LoL), so why not E.J.?
I just feel like it those kind things that give soaps the black eye it deserved and why many of female viewers are not watching soaps no more.
I won't open the rape/not rape debate again, but: Way back in the 60s, Mike Horton was conceived during a rape, then his parents married and had another kid, so that particular ship sailed a long time ago, imo. None of these characters are moral pillars of society. It doesn't hurt anyone for fans to like who they like.For every person turning off the show because of a particular story or character, there are a lot more leaving because of the decline in writing and lack of direction. Not to mention the fact that we have thousands of channels to choose from now instead of just four.
