I know you weren't talking about any particular fan, I was simply replying from my own point of view since I don't think I can speak for a whole fanbase.
I really don't think fan bases have anything to do with what happens on screen. The last time the show was pretty popular was when Reilly was writing in the 90s, and that's because the show had a singular vision and you didn't have a lot of interference from the network or Corday. Of course you did have some interference from the network, but I think ultimately Reilly got his way and was allowed to write story after story that had some good consistency. Once Corday started hiring bad writer after bad writer you had a show that just threw shit at the fans, and when nothing seemed to work they blamed the fans for being unable to please. I don't buy that it's ever the fans fault, other than Days cultivated a core audience that tuned in for romance and adventure, and not bed-hopping couples. When they stopped writing for that audience, they lost their way.
