It almost seemed personal with the way they treated them.
Well I certainly don't understand why. I'm pretty sure Deidre never did anything to make the writers and producers dislike her. She's always gone out of her way to promote the show and she's still speaking positively about it even after they unceremoniously fired her.

Perhaps the writers just wanted to use John and Marlena's exit to give a big "fuck you" to the supercouple fanbases. The J&M fans in particular were always quite passionate and vocal. But if the show's gonna screw over a fanbase just for being passionate and vocal, why not do the same thing to the Ejami fans and the Safe fans and the LUMI fans? LoL.
Oh, I know it was personal where the fanbases were concerned.

Corday got fed up. You could tell. That much was obvious from his "luncheon" comment in SOD this past June. Can I blame him? Not really but that was still classless.

As for why they don't do that with Lumi, Ejami, and Safe...it's because they still gave a damn about them (and they haven't been raging at TPTB for over tears either LOL) and they like pitting them against each other. Outside of Safe, I would say both the Lumi and Ejami fanbases have been shit on. I also think it helps that the show doesn't seem afraid of fanbases anymore. They just write the stories and plan them. They don't seem like they are changing things in response to backlash like they were prior to Tomlin for the better part of a decade.
