To me people wait too long to stand up.

Its that mentalilty of the Jack &Jen gets screwed. I don't care but don't touch Lumi. Lumi gets screwed. I don't care but leave Bo and Hope alone. Then its Bo and Hope and some say I don't care about them just don't go after John and Marlena. And then they do.

The same said about vets. As long as its not your guy then it becomes your guy and you are alone.

Every guy is number one until they are not. Dont care today. You will tomorrow.

No one fights for the show anymore. Just their people. But the prinicple of respecting vets is good for fans and actors. If your actor is not a vet now you want him or her to be one and you want them respected.

To have a great show you have to have a show that respect the characters, the actors and the fans. This show is zero for three.
I get what you're saying. Then again, the uproar last year over the firing of the vets that sparked #DaysAngryViewer was pretty broad-based, stretching across most fan groups. It lasted a few weeks and got no response from Days. Likewise, the anti-Dannifer sentiment transcends fanbases and has been consistently expressed for months and months with no visible result or response from TPTB.

The writers and execs seem to recognize that the core 2 million viewers are going to watch no matter what. A few years ago, dropping down to 2 million was scary. But now, relatively speaking, they seem to have settled in and resigned themselves to that number -- and they have nothing waiting in the wings that could do better. I think, at least for the last little while, the writers have been told they can pretty much do whatever they like as long as they stay within a basic range.

Viewers can rant and complain as loud and as long as they like. But as long as that same core audience keeps tuning in, it won't matter. The writers are insulated from any fallout and can do as they choose.
