    Mbmom stopped coming here after Richard aka Mike bullied her so much she stopped posting. She wasn’t the only one! Difference with me is I won’t be bullied into leaving for posting positive about a show u like!

  • robert sprague

I don’t like to complain about gh I used to love the show .the last month its been horrible. britt moving in with Patrick seen that coming .Sabrina get a backbone enough of felix he is just nosey and don’t get me going about the new lulu im sorry she is not doing the job time for her to go .bobbi should of stayed in town carly is allways going to need her along with luke and laura and micheal bring bobbi back for good . ratings slipped big time when frisco bobbi and noah left in the same week. give tracy elq she deserves it not aj that’s all hes been is the quartermaines pain in the ass son . we want lucy scott luke laura bobbi heather Felicia mac anna sam rafe molly alexis tracy more monica and more of the talented chad duell brilliant actor give him a meaty syoryline.

    David, I have a deal for you. If I make any posts talking about GH other thank its performance in the ratings, feel free to post your rebuttal. If I do not mention GH then don’t bring my name up in your conversations. As I said back on page 3, I usually refrain from talking about GH because I do not watch it. If you want to watch it and enjoy it, then good. Watch it and enjoy it.

    I don’t understand why you constantly have to bring up my name when I never even talk about GH unless you bring it and my name up. I don’t even mention your name unless you bring up mine in one of your posts. I had made a couple of comments on the first three pages and only referenced your name when you included me in one of your posts. You seem to be fighting some kind of imaginary war against me that I am not even involved with.

    This behavior comes very close to cyberstalking.

  • David

    JayTN I dont make deals with snakes like you!

    last year you consistently made comments to me and others for looking at the positive of GH.

    I could care less if you post about GH! If you post something about any show and I have something to say in regard to what you post I will.

    LMAO @ cyberstalking, it is message forum where peopple have the rights to post opinions etc.

    The funny thing is I dont go around bashing people for liking another soap. On occasion I have commented on Days after watching it or Y&R after watching it and simply said i didn’t care for it and felt JFP was going to ruin it.

  • Samsung

    Y&R is horrible it’s getting worse and worse

  • Eileen

    OK NOW FIRST OF ALL I DON’t APPRECIATE SOME OF the remarks that I am reading here! I just came here to read the ratings and not be insulted by some of these insulting comments just because of the shows that I like. Second of ALL, General Hospital is a bunch of garbage and everyone knows that so don’t you DARE try to tell me otherwise. Second of ALL, DAYS of OUR LIVES has been awful since 1999 with the whole Princess Gina fiasco and I have refused to watch that program ever again since then. Anyone who argues with that has absolutely no idea what they are talking about and FURTHERMORE the Young and the Restless is also very bad right now.

  • PatF

    I can’t comment on GH because I don’t watch, but being a life long fan of the Young and the Restless, I can.

    Eileen, you just said you didn’t appreciate some of the comments and then proceeded to bash GH, Days and Y and R? WT…?

    The writing is dramatically improved under JG on Y and R. So it is not “very bad right now.”

  • David

    You are garbage that is all

  • robert sprague

    every one bashing every one is stupid were here to talk and exchange comets not insults the hope is that the networks and the writers and producers see are comments in hopes that they will change what we don’t like . bashing isn’t going to help at all except give people a laugh.

  • JayTN

    Everyone should just ignore and avoid any discussions with David. He or she is obviously just an angry and juvenile little person…just read his numerous comments and that becomes evident. He calls people names that can only be posted here by spacing the letters apart, accusing them – without any proof – of posting under more than one name, or calling them “snakes” or “garbage”.

    Then he or she says that “I don’t go around bashing people”. If we all ignore David then his or her posts will have the effect of one hand clapping and his increasingly vile and immature postings will only serve to make him or herself look bad.

    This is the last time that I will even acknowledge David in any of my postings here, so feel free to be as childish as you want in your replies to me. I refuse to let you drag me down to the gutters were most of your comments originate from.

  • JayTN

    PatF…maybe Eileen like B&B, which is hardly ever even mentioned in these ratings threads. One would think that the #2 daytime soap would have more of an on-line presence.

    It is kind of ironic that the two soaps that elicit the most passionate defenders or detractors are “Days” and GH, the two lowest rated soaps.

  • David

    Like I am going to cry over you ignoring me JayTN. I still love you my good friend.

    If people like JayTN didn’t feel the need to gay bash like they have in the past or insult people for being positive about a show there wouldnt be an issue. I have had fine discussions with others.

    As for Eileen well she went all out bashing on every single show and her post was garbage. End of story.

    Ignoring me wont make me go away Jay, I love you still my good friend

  • David

    Great job fro Frank and Ron on the handling of the returns of Easton, Howarth, and Alderson.

    Love Alderson playing a bad girl.

    Interesting to see Easton playing a doctor, totally different role from him

    And although we do not know who Howarth’s character is yet, rumors are he is going to be a Quartermaine, really looking forward to that.

    Didnt mind the Chew hosts gues appearance at all as it fit into the storyline perfectly

  • David

    Great news Denise Alexander will be returning to GH this week as Lesley Weber

  • MBmomof3

    Just to clarify…Richard and I rarely shared the same point of view, but we got along very well and respectfully agreed to disagree. We enjoyed each other’s comments very much and I miss his postings and hope all is well.

    I just had to step away because at times it can get pretty ugly on this site. While I can usually hold my own, I grew tired of the personal attacks.

    Still loving the soaps and love reading all your comments. I pop in now and again. Peace.

  • MBmomof3

    While I’m here, I want to throw my 2 cents in that I believe there are a number of factors for the decreased ratings; I think it is possible that the Jodi Arias murder trial may have had some impact in some markets.

  • David

    @MBMom Richard is still here he just has been posting as Mike, now that name has been exposed he will probably come back under a different name

  • Mike

    Jay, I wish B&B had more of an online presence. Not many places that discuss it much. Would be nice to sometimes.

  • Mike

    Oh Y&R fans did you see the TV Guide article about how they will deal with Jeanne Cooper’s death. Very unique approach. I look forward to seeing the show on the 28th. I think that may be the first of it’s type for daytime. I hope when they finally deal with Kay’s death later in the summer that it will be dramatic and spark a good story.

  • David

    Mike aka Richard how classless to use a womens death to put over a tv show but that is typical of you. If anyone else did that you would be jumping all over them.

    How are your sugars today?
