Thank You for giving us the straight facts/truth....there was SO NOT the need for them to lie to us about everything. I guess they thought if they lied long enough,swept the garbage under the rug that we would go away....they were SO wrong.

I don't like the way some fans are saying stuff like "lets save GH we don't want to lose "this" one....UGH! and I DO watch GH. We are soap fans and for the genre we should stick up for all the soaps. To save one might save them all IMO.

While I feel for the workers on the soaps more than I do the fans (bad time to be unemployed in most every industry), I see the point in canceling the shows. They're a business, they have stockholders to answer to, and they can't keep a show on the air just because there will be a big stink about it from the fans.

Soaps have been dying for decades, and we now have a whole universe of entertainment options to get our attention. Soaps are getting less tha 1% of the population, and that's pretty awful for a medium that doesn't repeat and requires a constant ouflow of cash (even after drastic cost cutting).

The word "boycott" makes me cringe, and I personally boycott a lot of businesses that cave under the pressure (perceived or real). If I were a CEO of a company, I'd tell my staff to ignore any and all petitions, boycott demands and everything else along those lines on a matter of principle more than anything else.

Sorry, but Disney World is an amazing vacation, and I'm planning my trip now.

Susan,
I wonder why you would even post on this forum. It sounds like you are part of the Disney/ABC team of destroyers. Like the old saying goes...."if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem!"
