'FacePlace' really annoys the shit out of me though. I think it's good that their involving social media in teen stories though, it's very relevant

I'm glad the kid who plays Jamie is the victim in this storyline and not Fen. The actor playing Jamie is actually a really good actor from what I've seen.

Since Lauren is involved, they should reference the sh!t she put Traci though.

I hate the teen stories and I will FF this one just like I FF alll the others. I hate kids on my soaps. All of them should be out doing something else besides being on a soap. If I wanted teens I could have all the neighborhood teens over and listen to their problems instead of watching them on TV.
I love soaps for the fashions, love in the afternoon and corp. law battles. Teens are the last thing I want to see on YnR.

What a concept the Super Child acting out just like her no good two-faced Momma.

in order for soaps to grow, they need to get young people watching to expand their audience

ITA, this is going to be beyond boring, besides, I think people who get cyber bullied, are really stupid, all you have to do is NOT go online to the site where you are being bullied or if the site has the handy-dandy ignore button, use it.
It's not like it's RL. :huh:

One OLTL did not have suberb writers when they did a bullying storyline and of course it wasn't impressive they wrote the bully as the victim!

And that speaks volumes about the sad state of daytime television if he's the best of a bad bunch...

Um no he throws plot point after plot point onscreen and calls it a story while he gets praised for doing the same things other writers got bashed for. I'd put Brad Bell before him. And even Tomlin who I loathe.

Doesn't mean he's good. It's all up for interpretation.

His GH is riddled with retcons, forced humour, and weird pacing. He never gets the type of blame other writers get for the same mistakes from the soap press.

The dialogue on his shows also tend to be really contrived, forced, and heavy handed.
