I think its just a sign of the times. Negativity seems to permeate everything online these days. And we've all fallen into that mold to an extent.

There was a time when you could have a real discussion on the boards without rampant bias coming into play. That doesn't exist much anymore. And the Sony board is so overly moderated, you can't say anything that isn't at all positive.
While I agree with the general point, in the specific case of Days of Our Lives, it's hard to deny that they've given us reasons to go negative.

I had no intention of being negative about the show when I came back to it for last year's reboot. I believed Meng and was looking forward to them delivering on what they promised. For a few weeks, I was actually able to watch entire episodes and look forward to the next show. But by November, there was a shift. And by January, it was clear they were not going to deliver on those promises. It just continued downhill from there. And when they decided to bring back most of the same people who'd been there before the reboot, well...

My point is that this show is giving too many reasons for people to be negative. Meanwhile, it's not giving any indication that it's even trying to address some fundamental flaws.

Also, I still maintain that the show itself created fanbase wars, and it continues to fan the flames of fanbase wars in the mistaken belief that this will generate "good buzz" and keep people tuned in.
