A big hug from me too, Sherry.
I can understand that this was exhausting. I am not a member of many boards, but of course I read posts in some more boards than I'm a member of. And that, the unrespectful and sometimes even nasty behaviour or just the way people "talk" with each other, often was one of the reasons to keep away and don't join one of the boards.
I mean everybody has his own opinion (or at least should have) and this makes a good discussion. If one person points out something and everybody else just have to agree (I agree, you are right, I say exactly the same) how boring or short would that conversation be?
Sometimes you have a different opinion than your best friend, your family, your colleagues, so why shouldn't you be allowed to have a different opinion than the star of a show? I haven't seen much of season 4 (I don't even know all episodes of season 3 yet), so I personally can't say if I agree with David or your point of view, but I totally respect your opinion.
I don't know what else this person wrote - or the others who probably really haven't read your statement but just picked some phrases of the entire discussion that, in their opinion, gave them the right, to attack you too (you bad fan
). But, generally spoken, I don't think it's good to agree with "everything" somebody else - even when it's your absolutely favourite star - says. I really can adore somebody, no matter if it's someone in your private life, a star, a writer... and anyway can disagree with something he (or she) said. This doesn't mean my admiration or the way I feel for this person changes.
I hope anything of the things I wrote make sense. I really needed long for this post.
I just joined, but this really is a great site with nice and respectful people. Steph and Sharon (is there anybody else responsable?
), you're doing a great work here.
