    @David I’ve really been trying to be good and stay out of the petty nonsense but……its a really low blow when you jest about another posters medical condition. Your constant attacks on Mike/Richard make you look more like a dope than he ever was. Chill already!

  • PatF

    I truthfully don’t know why anyone attacks any poster or the shows they don’t watch.

    I try to keep my comments to the show I’m a fan of.

    General comments about the ratings don’t hurt, but the constant bashing on here makes a lot of people defensive about their show.

  • JayTN

    PatF…I agree. I generally don’t comment on B&B or GH, as I don’t watch them. Odds are if I even mention GH anymore it’s only to defend myself from being labeled a “hater”.

    Since you seem to be a fan of Y&R, am I the only one getting tired of Nick Newman? Actor Joshua Morrow must have an easy time learning his lines, as he constantly repeats himself. He always seems to be bursting (uninvited) into someone’s home or office and threatening people to stay away from people that he is either related to or presently/formerly involved with romantically.

    Like today’s episode where Nick bursts into Jack’s house with accusations against Kyle without knowing anything about what is actually going on. In the past he has threatened/warned Dylan about messing with Avery and threatened/warned Adam about messing with Sharon. It’s gotten to the point that I usually fast-forward thru any Nick scenes.

    If the rumors that ex-writer Maria Arena Bell was planning on killing off Sharon in February, I wish the new writers would dispose of Nick instead.

  • David

    @PatF Richard now posting as Mike and JayTN spent last summer jumping down the throats of anyone who was positive towards GH. The minute someone called them out on that or posted positive stuff JayTN and Richard now posting as Mike cried victim.

    Funny now doing the same yet again.

    The haters of GH constantly post there comments about GH but get all upset when anyone else is negative back towards thenm or comes back with something psoitive about GH

  • JayTN

    More delusional comments from David, since we all know that I cannot shut up about GH. I just talk about it constantly. No one else can get a word in edgewise. Oh, wait…that’s right, that’s David.

    For the record, the only time I ever talked about GH was in terms of the ratings and usually my comments could be summed up by saying that if the ratings did not increase, it would get canceled. I guess as far as David is concerned, pointing out something that should be common sense and not heaping endless praise on GH makes people “haters”. I notice that David has yet to produce any evidence to back up his claim that I used to trash GH due to its 18-49 demo ratings. I guess I’ll be waiting a while for that evidence to be presented.

    Going back to what PatF said above, imagine how much nicer this board would be if people like David did not instigate feuds and arguments, but people were just allowed to post their opinions and comments without fear of being jumped on or ridiculed. I don’t know if I should be flattered or afraid that David seems to have an unnatural obsession with me and my posts.

  • JayTN

    jonboyelk…those types of comments are par for the course when dealing with David. Making light of even fun of medical conditions are nothing new. If I recall, David even made sexually suggestive comments towards my mother last year.

    I don’t even know why I bother to comment on his posts. It’s like the old saying that if you argue with an idiot, it’s hard to tell the difference from a distance. Replying or even acknowledging him doesn’t accomplish anything, it just creates more needless drama with back-and-forth arguing. Maybe we should all just ignore him and leave him be in his own little GH-centric world.

  • David

    Atually it is funny JAYTN and Richard aka now mike were the ones who were always posting things like people are delusional, or other insults Richard aka Mike actually drove people to stop posting.

    Now once again JayTN is playing victim and twisting the facts.

    I still love you JayTN. I’d prefer you ignore but no matter how many times you or Richard aka Mike say you will you don’t.

    If you notice I manage to have fine discussions I just won’t put up with crap that c u n t b a g s like you and Richard give out. If you don’t like it oh well

  • David

    I have discussions with others except for you JayTN and Richard aka Mike. Why because I don’t put up with your bullying that you all give out when someone psots something you disagree with.

    But I still love you JayTN. Great to hear from you

  • David

    Oh for the record JayTN that was not me who commented about your mother. That was a poster by the name of Chris B, one of the people that you and Richard aka Mike drove away

  • JayTN

    Actually “Chris B” was one of the names that “David” used to post under and I believe that the “Chris B” alter was banned from the forum, hence the name change.

    It’s funny that David can quickly give me the name of the person who said a comment last year, yet cannot come up with proof that I used to trash GH based on its 18-49 ratings.

    Also, nice how some of the offensive words you use can only be used by putting s p a c e s in between them. Stay classy.

  • cab

    Days is on fire. Not surprising that it has increased viewers over the 3 other soaps, not matter how low of an increase. Just goes to show Days is trying to present itself as an up to date soap, and not living in the past.

  • harlee490

    Now this past week on YR has been more balanced than the whole month of April, YR has been “must see” again and such a relief. It was making me nervous and the show was rather boring. YR keeps the balance and can pull once again the numbers up as doing pre-anniversary YR will be cooking again. With the rejuvenation of Nick coming to light over Summer will make this show on fire!

  • harlee490

    What in hell is going on PatF? Do I need to go back and read these comments? Do we have a “live” doppelganger individual going on in this thread? LMAO! All over the web it seems to always be YR vs GH, I don’t slam GH not being a viewer because it does nothing but stir the pot. I do know their more YR haters than GH haters, maybe because it comes from the position which YR stands…number 1.

  • Lynn

    B&B and Y&R are the worst soaps on right now. I used to love Y&R, but now I don’t even watch. B&B is not worth my time. Even the viewers I know that used to love this show have stopped watching. AMC and OLTL is what great soaps are about. I do like the nuLulu. Not digging Luke, Laura, Scotty, Sonny.

  • PatF

    Harlee…yes…not sure what’s up on here.

    The usual bashing going on.

  • bizzarr1000


  • Chrisann D

    Ok sorry to put in my 2 cents but I have NEVER seen Jay bash GH and even if he did(which I must have missed but since I read every week I doubt it) big deal. Jay, really David has probably got himself kick off here with his last comment. If not he should be.

    Drama is fun on TV but really tired of it on here. David really please stop with all of the rude nasty comments.

  • jonboyelk

    I think Y&R is improving….a little. To me it seems that Joshs stories have no satisfying conclusion. All those months of story about the Congressman and Gus and it just fizzled out. Same with Jacks dependency story. And Sharons bipolar. Much ado about nothing.

  • JayTN

    Chrisann D…thank you. While we didn’t always agree with our opinions, we always found a way to be respectful and civil towards one another. I always enjoyed reading your posts, as well as those from MBmomof3 and a handful of other people whose names I forget at the moment.

    I haven’t seen MBmomof3 or Kayla Rae posting recently, I hope all is well with them and that they return in the future.

  • David

    Jay and Richard have been uncivil to me for simply liking GH! If you are going to call me delusional for having an opinion then be prepared for me to give crap to you! Richard and Jay started thus over a year ago they only have themselves to blame! I guess Richard aka Mike is having eye sight issues the last two days! If he had taken care of himself he wouldn’t have said issues that is just fact! And if he didn’t want said issues brought up online then he should have never posted to everyone he had issues! He only has himself to blame!
