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.
