I don't think Parker was the same at all. There's also Ciara, Melanie, Daniell, Chad. No one really complains about Belle, Bo, Lucas, Cassie, Rex, Carrie, Lexie, Baby EJ, and with those I mean both on and off the show.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepthe show
doesn't treat it any differently. ;)
As for Mickey, I disagree, but see what you're saying. As for the other point, I definitely remember Mimi getting ripped to shreds by the shelles in particular, and I'm sure by others as well. The majority of the other stories took place before soap forums became popular (and maybe even before any dedicated soap boards existed) or included unpopular people, like Abe, but I don't believe Lucas fans weren't angry with what Sami did with Will, for example. I think it's impossible to accurately gauge and compare the reaction to those stories to these, when never before have so many people had the means to weigh in on the stories.
It's not at all impossible. Many of the stories were recent and didn't garner near the reaction EJ paternity stories do.
No stories garner the reaction that EJ's stories do, just because for some reason, more people seem to comment on Ej/Sami stuff than anyone else, but that's not the same as a character getting treated more harshly because they stole EJ's kid, imo. It just means more people are invested enough in EJ to weigh in (both for and against the kid-grab as we can see), but that doesn't tell you how everyone feels about the plot line in general. Unless I'm forgetting a story, I think we must have different definitions of either "many" or "recent." I'd put the marker for recent around 2005 and leaving out paternity lie stories surrounding EJ we have-
Mimi/Claire - Got a big reaction
Parker - Same
