Thank you for coming to my defense! I am not a fan of Philip/Stephanie, so when I read those comments(on page2) and they were all negative, I thought to myself, 'Gee, I'm not the only one who doesn't like them."lol. That's all it was, really...

Wow, reading the comments that the posters on soapnet posted over there....does ANYBODY like Philip/Stephanie as a couple???LMAO.
There were only 17 comments total. Eight of them discussed Philip and Stephanie. Out of those eight, six were negative and two positive. So, although you implied all
the comments about Philip and Stephanie were negative, they were not. I am not a Philip and Stephanie fan, but I hardly think that eight comments on an Internet board somehow represent the preferences of a majority of the actual viewing audience. All message boards are unreliable indicators of actual popularity. They represent only a small portion of the audience and only that portion of the audience interested enough to go online and post about the show and/or their favorites. Not to mention the people who create multiple users names to create the impression of bigger fanbases. I'm sure the show knows better than to rely on message boards; they have other resources at their command, including but not limited to mail, phone calls, and surveys to determine which stories and couples are working and which are not.
I can't speak for Phelleforever, but I didn't get the impressions she was making a scientific quantum analysis of aggregations of posts on a board. I took it as a funny lighthearted observation which I think was her intention.
