    It is funny most of the complaints i have read are about Prospect Park’s action. Only a couple of regular GH haters have been the ones putting the blame on them.

    These people have done nothing but bash a successful producer and writer. Before the increase ratings they did everything to try to say the show wasn’t improving, the ratings would not go up, and the show would be cancelled Now that they cannot claim those things anymore they find other nit pick things now to attack said producer/writer.

    Bottom line is GH has Genie Francis, Kin Shriner, Lynn Herring, Finola Hughes, Sean Keanan, etc back in addition to doing a great job with the new characters. The show continues to do better ratings than THe View or The CHew and has been consistently number one in the 18-34 demographic and closing in on number one in the 18-49 female demographic. ABC has gotten behind the show, there are no plans of cancelling it, etc

    For some reason these people feel the need to attack the show because they cannot deal with the fact that they were wrong and the writer/producer they dislike so much have been a success.

    They can call me all the names in the book, I have a thick skin and yes I will replay and rebutt things they say. I could care less about the name calling. IF they want to continue down that road I can call them a bunch of names. I have left it at haters and gay bashers for now but kept it and I can come up with a bunch of adjectives to describe them.

    Keep it up Frank/Ron GH cast and crew. You have done an awesome job of turning the show around making it the show we all loved in the 80s and 90s and for me I have enjoyed seeing the success as it has proved these haters wrong

    Oh, my soapsuds! There’s more drama here than on CBS ABC and NBC combined! Bottom line is…whatever happens happens. You, me nor anyone else can make a difference. So stop hating on one another and sit back and enjoy your daytime drama.

    Thanks for your apology, jonboyelk. All is forgiven. :) Onwards and upwards.

    I DO know the history of DOOL, Kelby, as I’ve been watching it ever since its debut in 1965, and I couldn’t disagree with you more fervently. Days is consistently the best soap on tv and the writing and acting both are superb!
