I know the whole good and evil think is relative, but I tend to think that the Hortons, like the Bradys, were generally supposed to be on the "good" end of the spectrum. They certainly haven't been dastardly villains in the vein of Stefano or Alex Marshall or Lawrence Alamain. Tom and Alice were the backbone of the show, and pretty much everyone, even the "bad" guys, looked up to and respected them. Mickey was a well-respected attorney in the town. Mike was a doctor, Jennifer was a journalist. Hope was a cop. Marie was a nun. Julie was a business woman, among other things. For the most part, we heard and saw that they were good at their jobs and well-respected. We never heard that any of them was deliberately villainous in the way they went about their work or that they were out to hurt people just for kicks or for personal gain. So, yeah, I would say the Hortons were generally known to be "good" more than "evil." But, of course, what all of the Hortons have been is flawed and human. Bill and Tommy were perhaps more flawed than the others. They've all made mistakes and missteps -- even Tom and Alice -- and they usually were made to pay for them, or at least called out by several people about them.
What we're getting today is watered down versions of who they once were. They're still not necessarily "evil." But they're not that "good" either. They're just grey and blah (when they're not irritating). When I hear "ruining the Hortons," that's what I think of. But, of course, it's happening to everyone on the show -- even the so-called villains are grey and blah (when they're not irritating), lol!
