As for the exits, I disagree. If they didn't want to cause a storm and get negative publicity, why write such a malicious end for them? Yes, they rushed the exit but they also made the exit very disrespectful.
The writers were probably operating under the assumption that if John and Marlena were badly written at the end, fans wouldn't mind their exits as much. On the other hand, if they were given a beautiful exit that celebrated their history on the show together, the fans would remember why they liked J&M in the first place and be a little more resistant to accepting their exits.
I doubt that.

It almost seemed personal with the way they treated them. You could literally sense that they hated the characters. I mean, Steve and Kayla were treated like crap but I would have no exit then the one J&M got. That just seemed way too brutal. They could've did what you said without resorting to those lengths.
