Why is there still such a to-do about someone commenting that Dee might have been a little off at Fanfest? I still don't see why that is considered an insult for her to be human. Poor Phoenix couldn't make an observation? He never claimed to have the inside scoop. Gads.

Scoop, guys. Dee uses the bathroom. I've never witnessed it, but I have it on good authority, in general, human beings do stuff like that. They get a little down. Then they rally and put on a brave front. I HONESTLY cannot believe that his comments are still considered heresy.

Regardless, the timeline does manner in the larger scope of things. All this stuff doesn't just affect the DH'ers, it affects the other actors. The timeline would have a lot to do with some of the other rumblings going on. And, yes, knowing for two weeks just means they aren't infallible. Give them credit for forging through. I'd think a fan would be proud of Dee (AND DRAKE. Remember, he's part of this) for going through, going to work, facing fans, and doing the best they can professionally instead of fully wearing their hearts on their sleeves. But, then again, maybe I'm a different type of actor's fan, one who doesn't expect the actor to jump through hoops for me.

I am still shaking my head, though, in the disbelief that maybe, just maybe, things aren't sterling in Dee-ville and that the realization that maybe, just maybe, the rain falls on everyone at one point or two in their lives. Did some folks honestly believe there was going to be a Marlena forever?
I'm also still shaking my head that this is still such a big deal. Time for a new Days scandal.

(Shaking my head as I get ready to hit "add reply", wondering, wondering, wondering...time to go to the OLTL thread)
I agree I don't understand why this is such a big to do. I remember this argument breaking out, and it seemed the initial posts were cordial, then it changed to a war when it really shouldn't have. There was nothing wrong with PR posting his feelings nor was there anything wrong with people questioning it. I too questioned his comment when I first saw it because everything I read had been very positive. It wasn't a big deal, I figured it was just his initial impression. I don't see a problem with someone else asking why he felt that way. If I had been to fanfest and had a positive or negative experience, I'd have posted my account assuming he only had the one article to go by and would like discussion. I had already read the article mentioned btw, and I had just thought it must make actors sad to sign stuff for people knowing they just want to ebay it, and it must've made Deidre happy that someone really wanted it for herself. To me it seems like others made what should have been a 'how did you feel about fanfest' discussion into something really ugly.

I don't think one person made it that way, it just kinda snowballed, and J&M discussions here seem to do that (to me), so I asked a question on another post about what I perceived as negative J&M feelings on the board and received some very nice messages explaining that there have been issues in the past. I greatly appreciate the info, and I feel really terrible about some of the things I heard. I'm sorry there is contention among fanbases. I understand there are hard feelings on both sides, and it can be hard to get past them.

However, J&M are leaving soon. I haven't been on the boards terribly long, and I've always enjoyed a lot of couples on the show. I know I may be stepping out of line, but I really wish everyone could just try to get along till J&M are gone at least. This has been incredibly depressing for me, and I come to the boards to feel better and find out info, not have the little time we have left arguing. I'm not saying not to discuss. I love discussion. Just less hatred from both sides.

Just a thought.
