Jillian Bowe August 7, 2009 Comings & Goings, General Hospital 173 Comments Soap Opera Digest is reporting General Hosptial is currently holding a casting call for the role of Sam McCall, currently being played by Kelly Monaco. Yes, I am stone cold sober! According to the magazine’s website, the show is looking for someone to play a Caucasian female in her early 30’s, brunette, powerhouse who has been already established on the canvas. ABC declined to comment. 173 Responses J Bernard Jones August 7, 2009 Maybe she didn’t want to move to California. (I couldn’t resist. LOL) Log in to Reply ghaddict August 7, 2009 This better be a joke………. Log in to Reply Courtney fan4life August 7, 2009 I care because….. And either way if kelly wants out why not just get rid of the character all together. Never cared for Sam or her boobs. Log in to Reply discodan August 7, 2009 WTF IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?! Log in to Reply season1217 August 7, 2009 According to the magazine’s website, the show is looking for someone to play a Caucasian female in her early 30’s, brunette, powerhouse who has been already established on the canvas. Aren’t they always looking for that?!:P Log in to Reply LuvSonny August 7, 2009 OMG! Someone say this isn’t true?????? Did the casting call actually say “Sam McCall” or did it just describe someone that sounded like her???????? Log in to Reply discodan August 7, 2009 Who knows? According to that description, it could BRENDA! Log in to Reply sueboo54321 August 7, 2009 I care little for Sam or Kelly Monaco but isn’t it Sarah Brown who has expressed displeasure? Doesn’t that make more sense? Soap Opera Digest only ever reports what we already know. They are like the weather man who breaks into the soaps to point out it is snowing (Duh!!) Wouldn’t Claudia also be described as 30’s and already established on the canvas? Log in to Reply season1217 August 7, 2009 Maybe she didn’t want to move to California. HA!:D Log in to Reply ThomHunt August 7, 2009 How do we know it’s not a new Claudia they are looking for? The description “Caucasian female in her early 30’s, brunette, powerhouse who has been already established”, especially the “powerhouse” part, leads me to believe that it could be a potential new Claudia. Isn’t Sarah Brown reportedly unhappy with the writing of her character? And her contract is up in January? Would producers start looking for a replacement this early? Log in to Reply KC121183 August 7, 2009 Didnt Kelly Monaco recently resign for a few more years? She hasnt given any indication that she has been unhappy with the show recently, huh?

Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 7, 2009 I would like to pose a question to you guys…when you like one soap less, does it effect your overall feelings towards the genre? I guess I am just a bit out of sorts at the idea of losing JaSam AND Zendall all in the same time span. With the writing the way it is, depending on who sticks with AMC, I could see myself dropping that show altogether – I have zero interesting in watching an hour of Tad and Taylor (esp. after her ripping on the actor that plays Brot) and a rehashed Rylee. And the idea of dropping AMC – if I can drop that, could I see myself dropping a Morasco and rapemance dominated OLTL and a GH without Tamara Braun, KeMo, and possibly SJB? I cant believe I am about to say this but MAYBE. If Robin Strasser hadnt re-signed with OLTL I would have had to answer that LEANING YES. UGGH can you tell my mind is skitzzing. LOL Log in to Reply podcastjunkie August 7, 2009 Well for us KeMO fans that sucks, especially since it looked like JaSam may return. I’d love to hear the behind the scenes scoop on that one. Oh well, now there’s only one brunette haired lady I love on that show. Hate to see her go but it’ll be interesting if it ever comes out what happened and interesting to see who they’ll get to replace her. Log in to Reply At50 August 7, 2009 Someone at another place also suggested that it could be a negotiating tactic as other soaps have put out similar calls when big stars were in negotiations. It also could be a temporary recast. Log in to Reply KC121183 August 7, 2009 Wow…this really blows monkey chunks, if true. Ive been a KM since the Port Charles days, and was so glad to see her come on GH. While Im glad that this MAY mean Rebecca Herbst isnt out (hopefully), now we might lose KM?

Log in to Reply chris345 August 7, 2009 Could we get Gina Tognoni as Sam and Jeff Branson as a re-cast Lucky???? Gina went brunette for Dinah when she first hit SF, I’m sure she could change the color again. As much as I love Greg V, he cannot act and TPTB will never give him a good storyline, so why not re-cast with an actor who can act and would do justice to the role of Lucky Spencer. Log in to Reply chris345 August 7, 2009 Wonder if Monaco got offere a role to be a judge on that show which Paula Abdul was rumored to be offered a job. The dancing show. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 7, 2009 To the haters, of course her fans want her to succeed, but we would also miss her – I feel the same way about VM, TB and SJB. I just cant believe all viewers dont relate to that feeling and have to come and be negative. As for this post, yes, it could be a negotiating tactic, yes it could be a temp. recast, yes it could be a twin. I havent given up yet, just came at a time where for me as a fan not only of gh but of the genre, I feel unsettled. IF KeMo was to leave, its unsettling that its coming on the heels of GL wrapping, ATWT on thin ice, AMC moving and talks of one of the ABCD shows being cancelled in favor of frickin Aisha TYler. I have never been a one character,one actor fan – the type that says if they write off so and so, count me out etc. etc. But in a way its sort of like a boyfriend you are thinking about dumping and then he goes on a vacation and you think – wow I didnt miss him at all. If I give up AMC and dont miss it, it makes it easier to consider dumping the other two shows. Its something that GL fans are facing now. If KeMo leaves, it probably wouldnt be the straw that broke the proverbial camels back but it would add to my sense of dread towards the medium as a whole. Actually right now though, I am leaning towards this being a fake out for a SJB recast (although if she leaves I say dump Claudia, because the only appeal of the character is the actress playing her.) The reason I say this is that Daisy caught this morning that she has dumped or hidden her sarah brown FB page – not the fan page, but the one where she use to drop scoops, music what not. She also has a personal page under the name Sarah Joy Brown for her real life friends and family but that appears to be gone as well. she hasnt posted on the fan page in ages. I am actually wondering if she caught some flack for what she said at her GHFCW event, esp. given the fact that Farah Fath apparently caught heat for her Nelson Branco interview and IMHO Brown went further than Fath in terms of criticizing tptb. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 7, 2009 IMHO GV has more talent in his pinky than Jeff Branson does in total. SBu, when he is not playing opposite Kelly, plays stiff as a reflection of Jason’s brain damage and career persona. We do not need another stiff type. GV was awesome in the drug storyline…tptb should give him story not recast. Sad about Sarah and the not friends thing if that is it. I really couldnt believe what she told us about the phones calls from the Megan Ward fans. When she said that my first words to DaisyClover was NOW YOU KNOW WHY I DONT TELL MOST OF MY FRIENDS THAT I AM A SOAP FAN… Log in to Reply CGat August 7, 2009 “Could we get Gina Tognoni as Sam and Jeff Branson as a re-cast Lucky????” ****** NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!! Gina Tognoni has FAR better opportunities than freaking General Hospital. I mean, even if GL sucks it up a lot, they still can effectively write for Tognoni. Please no GT on GH. HELL NO! Log in to Reply ghaddict August 7, 2009 It’s crazy that I’ve been on such a GH high for the last few weeks and now that’s all gone…..I’m really not sure if I believe this though….unless the casting call specifically named Sam McCall then that description could be for many different characters…. If the casting did name Sam McCall then I’m more inclined to believe that this is some sort of negotiating tactic on the side of TPTB since I’m pretty sure those types of major recasts are done privately….. Log in to Reply sueboo54321 August 7, 2009 The problem with Lucky Spencer is not the actor playing him. It is that the writers will not write for him. The only time I have ever seen GV stretch as an actor in this role is when he was playing druggie Lucky and he was good. I miss Jonathon Jackson’s Lucky but these writers do not write Lucky the same way JJ’s Lucky was written. They made him a cop and sucked the brain and the backbone right away from him. He has been overcome with the same disease the show is currently overcome with. I call it Mob-itis. If you are not in the mob or sleeping with the mob or carrying the mob’s child, you get zero airtime. GV is not the problem but he could be the solution. Write for him and give him screentime. Steve Burton got his Emmys before Jason ever took custody of Sonny’s cast off. Log in to Reply season1217 August 7, 2009 EET, it’s about to be a girl fight!

I just hope and pray that they would find someone that has great chemistry with SB, since the Stelly chemistry is why I love JaSam so much. Anyhoo, I’m still hoping this casting call is a stunt, negotiation tactic, or re-cast of Claudia or Elizabeth. Didn’t we recently read that RH’s status on the show is up in the air?

I think they should take her down in a hail of bullets and just before she dies a grotesquely painful death she confesses that she is not Alexis’ daughter. There have been so many characters infinitely more interesting than Sam McCall that were a flash on the GH canvas since KeMo arrived that were never given a chance. Bring one of them back. Heck…remember Sonny’s lawyer he slept with (right before they brought on the Fed chick Reese) who was so forgettable that I can’t remember her name? Way better than Sam-a-lam-a-ding-dong. Or better yet! There are quality actresses (whose last airdate was yesterday…Gina T) who might be looking for work…why not just scrap the crap and bring on someone new and INTERESTING to the GH canvas? An innovative character like GH was capable of creating in the 90’s instead of what we’ve been getting for the last 5-7 years. Of course…if they ARE interesting then that would immediately set them up for extermination by the weak-kneed writing staff that would rather regurgitate than create…but I can still hope can’t I?

Log in to Reply growpeas August 8, 2009 Has anyone mentioned that Liz (RH) sort-of fits the description? (Sorry if it was put out there, I didn’t see it) I would take Liz to be 30ish, and a light brunette. And, if RH is in contract talks… well, need I say more? I don’t mind KeMo as Sam (I just don’t like her with Jason). So, I’d be sorry to see her go. But, RH is the reason I continue putting up with GH. Peas Log in to Reply season1217 August 8, 2009 This show doesn’t consider Liz as a “powerhouse” and I don’t see them caring enough for the character to recast if Rebecca were to leave or if they were to let her go.

Really I would love to see Rebecca get the chance to move on to bigger and better things, and I would not miss the character of Hosabeth Holier than Thou Webber one bit. They should move Claudia out of the Sonny orbit, and put her with Nik. Maybe bring back Kate for Lucky. Kill of the Easy Bake Oven of Port Chuck and let Lucky and Jason fight over the kids.

The casting call is for Sarah Brown who has been openly bashing the writing, not Kelly Monaco. The fans of Jason and Liz who think that they will be reunited if Kelly leaves are kidding themselves. GH will use the money saved to hire a new love interest for Jason. Bet on it. Log in to Reply doodleynoodle August 8, 2009 I’m a fan of Jason & Elizabeth but I would rather him have share his life (until Steve Burton’s contract runs out or GH is cancelled) with ANYone besides Sam McCall. She demeans the integrity of the character of Jason…for the entire GH canvas for that matter. The only person who makes sense for the character of Sam McCall is Jerry Jacks…they’re two peas in a pod and they have smoking hot chemistry. If they would have the guts to WRITE it I MIGHT be able to have a modicum of respect for Sam McCall as a character. But they won’t…so I don’t.

Log in to Reply chris345 August 8, 2009 Why would they recast Claudia, she could just leave, she has not ties to the show. But for characters with family and ties they need to re-cast. I love GV and I was the biggest LuSam fan going, I loved the quad and was happy during the writers strike with the way they were writing Liason and Lusam. I will defend all four of the actor and love all four. But the truth is that TPTB will never write for Lucky and they should and it’s because they don’t want to write for this actor as Lucky, not because he is lucky. So if they don’t want to write for an actor they need to get rid of them and hire somebody they do want to write for. LW rocked the house on GL and she does a great job rocking the house as this version of Carly ( a role re-cast many times). So why not GT in the role of Sam McCall, she is so talented and she could take on any role. I think Kelly Cramer is to boring for her, I’d rather see her someplace else. Taking over the role of Sam would be a nice challenge. As for Jeff Branson, I hated him on AMC and I love him on GL. He got nominated for an emmy this year and I’ll say that the character he plays on GL is nothing like who he played on AMC. I’d rather the writers have an actor they want to write for in the role of Lucky than somebody they don’t. Log in to Reply doodleynoodle August 8, 2009 “doodleynoodle: Wow, i’m ignorant? So you really want to start trading insults??” No…I really don’t. I’m sure you would win hands down. It seems I’m as passionate about disliking the character of Sam McCall as you are about singing her praises. I apologize that my comments got out of hand. Log in to Reply jpp1975 August 8, 2009 Well, I don’t actually think they’d recast Brenda, just that them recasting Sam is just as highly unlikely. Although the Liason fan in me would be just a tiny bit happy if it’s true… Log in to Reply chris345 August 8, 2009 A Sam recast should not make liason fans happy. It means that they are going out and getting a name to be paired with Jason… If Kemo is going and they planned to do Liason, then there would be no Sam recast, she would just die and Liason would reunite. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens August 8, 2009 UPDATE: Okay, first off, this is NOT a DC news item, it is from Soap Opera Digest. I just want to re-iterate that since I see people saying we’re never wrong. God, we love you guys for that! :p, but this is straight up from Digest, not us. What I am hearing though is this could be a negotiation scare tactic. I am perplexed, because I thought Kelly recently re-signed and I am not up on GH contracts, and our Regan isn’t here to shed light. I do know, this is NOT for a Brenda recast, but that’s all I know at this point. When I know more, you guys will. Keep checking back. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens August 8, 2009 Okay, and y’all let’s try to keep this thread respectful. Kelly is a popular actress and her fans are valued readers of DC. It’s no secret I am not a fan of the Sam character, but Kelly has a tremendously loyal fanbase and with the ratings for all soaps in the toilet, it’s never good when a popular star leaves. Beth Ehlers and Ricky Paull leaving Guiding Light was enough to put the final nail in GL’s coffin, no one wants to see any more fan faves leave, even if they aren’t particulary personal favorites. Oh and my sources say no matter what happens with Kelly/Sam, Liason ain’t happening. Frons is firmly against the pairing so there really is no gain in this for Liason fans. Log in to Reply mayjadjor August 8, 2009 I’ve decided to cool down and not even worry about this until I know for sure that it’s happening. At least we all know that KeMo is in place for the JaSam reunion. If they end up re-casting, which I pray to all that is holy they don’t, NuSam will come into play after JaSam are already back together. Please, oh please, soap gods… after 2 long years of non-chemistry and plain madness, let us have our original JaSam back for years to come!

I know this is a pro Liason leaning site, but I really appreciate the fact that you’ve always given KeMo some shine for her fans’ sake.

Was I murdered by the resident friendly psychiatrist only to end up on an island eating Gran’s donuts? Set the mood. Anyone who attempts to seriously argue that Jack is any more than *half* the man Sawyer is no friend of mine! I wasn’t arguing. I didn’t even say anything about Jack or Sawyer. But I’m glad that Sawyer was able to actually become a “man” while his child remained fatherless. Good for him. Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones August 8, 2009 Don’t be FOOOOOOLED.

Log in to Reply ghaddict August 8, 2009 thanks for the update Jamey….I was wondering where the DC cast was……… Log in to Reply inspiron August 8, 2009 Marie Wilson will probably be the recast. She fits the bill and she lives in CA and her character has been ruined on ATWT which is probably going off the air soon. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 8, 2009 Thanks Jamey. And I hope my posts werent construed as anti SJB or that I want her to leave. NOTHING could be further from the truth..if any of you had seen the lengths I went to to get into her event during GHFCW you would know that I absolutely love love love SJB and have no interest in seeing her leave the show. My fear is that they will recast Sam AND lose SJB come the end of her contract. WHo could blame her..she signed up for one thing, got another, the writing, even with that other direction, has made ZERO sense and on top of it she gets harrassed by crazy fans that somehow feel she did something to Megan Ward, even though Megan and Sarah are quite friendly and supportive of one another IRL. As I said originally, if AMC totally loses itself in this move, it makes it easier to think about saying adios in total to the ABC line up. This becomes another slap in the face to this long time fan, that once again they move heaven and earth to keep the guy (think MB, Sbu, TG) and then treat the women like they are unimportant (think TB, VM, GF, MW, and now KeMo.) I dont know about the rest of you, but a big part of the genre for me is continuity. I like that people I in some small way invited into my home 10, 20 even 30 years ago, are still are around. I was already disheartened from this morning’s comments by LaLucci about NY being her home and roots, and I am just thinking WOW ABC announced the move without making sure their marque female would go? UGGH the whole thing makes me sick. Log in to Reply ghaddict August 8, 2009 BITE YOUR TONGUE INSPIRON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you’re on Twitter, she has an account where she just discusses the soaps: @SoapOperaBabble Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 8, 2009 LLC apparently posted about SBU and NLG and that they have confirmed that its def. not a Sam recast. I think in the end this is all sorts of good..shows the network how much so many of us love Kelly and Sam. LuvSonny, I am out of my funk. I guess now that I know Kelly isnt going anywhere, I can at least deal with my AMC issues. I swear if I lost Zendall (which I am pretty sure I will) and JaSam at the same time I would be pretty darn soap cranky LOL. Glad my SJB love comes across. I totally loved her before the event, but honestly she was one of, if not my absolute favorite of all the people we met at GHFCW. SO nice, caring, considerate of her fans etc. My fav. part was when she said something to the effect that she would never be desperate enough to sell her photos to fans because her fans do so much for her. Thats someone who gets it.

Log in to Reply liason4real August 8, 2009 Maybe KeMo was told she would no longer be working with SBu and JaSam lame adventure and it’s aftermath is just Sam’s fantasy of being with Jason? Jason looked drugged in those promos and he hasn’t shown one iota of romantic interest in Sam. Can we say the samething about Jason and Liz? Liason scenes at Mercy Hospital, outside of Kelly’s, at the hospital have ALL been full of yearning on both sides, and lots of eye sex (no one does eye sex like Stecky). Besides, it’s really suspicious that the Sam McCall recast came hours after the JaSam promos. Is this Frons’ big push to get ratings up for GH and his suppose it Supercouple? Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 August 8, 2009 liason4real: I’ve heard those rumors too, but honestly, there are SO many theories out there now about this, I’m not going to believe any of it. Normally I take everything I read with a grain of salt, which is what I *should* have done with the SOD item. I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but I can’t see her throwing a tantrum because JaSam might not get together. That sounds ridiculous, imo. (and I would say the same about ReH or SJB, etc…) As for Stecky eye sex, uhm…I won’t argue it because this isn’t necessarily the place for a Liason/JaSam debate (JMO), but you can guess what I think of that, lol Log in to Reply LuvSonny August 8, 2009 EET- what is ILY?

Cling on to the he’s drugged, he is thinking of Lizard, they are having eye sex, KeMo stormed out because JaSam is a no go fan fic. Jamey, the worlds biggest J/L fan on the planet has said they are a No go, JaSam or no JaSam. The promos, the scoops, its all saying JaSam is happening.

Log in to Reply Guza-Frons-Suck August 9, 2009 oh please, Kemo is a mediocre actress at best. She does the SAME gestures in EVERY scene -flailing hands, closes her eyes, looks up- we get it you have angst, learn some new techniques. I also tuned out mainly because of her, and before you jump down my throat, it was because of the way the ENTIRE canvas had to change to make her happy with her storyline. The real Jason would still not even be looking her way, the entire white-washing of Sam McCall has been an affront to the intellegence of GH fans. IMO she was no hero at the cabin with Liz and the boys, I believe it was Liz who saved her ass by killing the Russian, (those were some great shooting lessons Jason gave her in the barn ) They keep making Sam out to be some hero, ass kicking chick, I have yet to see it. She is ALWAYS in need of help instead of helping others. She can’t do a damn thing herself. I really hope she is gone. Liason or not at least the writing wont have to be dumbed down anymore (really falling out of a window in a bra and underwear into jasons arms? or Showing up at her place dressed like a ho?) than it already is. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 August 9, 2009 I agree blackjack, Kelly is a terrific actress!! I watched PC on SoapNet and saw her as Livvie and Tess. She was great. Totally different roles, and again she’s playing a different type of character on GH. I think she has such range and is underrated as an actress. Anything she plays, she sells it Log in to Reply BigDede August 9, 2009 I love how people brag that this thread is so long when it’s mostly the same Sam zealots posting. Anyhoo, I WANT MY LUSAM BACK NOW!!!!! Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 9, 2009 Last post..then I am done with this topic, tired of the Haters Hating. I went back to the Is Rebecca Herbst safe at GH thread. You know what struck me in all of this.. not one pro-JaSammer came in to the thread to pour salt on the “wounds” so to speak. At WORST we said things like, she has big story coming up with Nik, I dont think she is going anywhere or I dont want her with Jason but they should give her a good story with a new love interest. Anyone who had something truly negative to say either didnt say it or didnt come in to the thread at all out of respect. No one called her a name and blamed it on spell check. No one called for her to be fired because of lack of talent. No one commented on Frons or Guza and how they might see it. No one said her fans must not really like her if they dont want her to go on to better things. No one made fun of her outside successes or lack thereof. No one questioned her professionalism. All that has happened this week with KeMo/Sam. Losing a character is much different than losing a pairing…one means your favorites will be on, just not with each other and the other means they will be gone, perhaps even permanently. It just seems sort of mean spirited that with her contract truly on the line, the haters have to hate. I may want Lizard on less or even gone because the character bores me, but if it happens I wont go into a goodbye type thread and gloat about it rip apart the actress. The other thing that struck me. Not one JaSammer that I can see said how can the let Kelly go and keep actress x, actress y and/or actress z. In fact the only thing even remotely close to that was how come they make an effort to cater to the actors and not the actresses, which has more to do with parity and not demeaning one actor or fanbase to pump the Kelly fanbase. Go back and check the ReH thread again. Comments about Claudia, Ethan, Sam, etc. etc. as if it is beyond the realm of possibility that someone might like any other character as much or more than they like Lizard. It cracks me up. (and I dont put newbies in that category, because again I see that as a comment about valuing newbies over vets which I see as a legit argument just like the parity issue) Log in to Reply blackjack21 August 9, 2009 thanks, eet and daisy. that was a smart thing to do, eet. if i’m a zealot for sam let me revel in the label. i started watching gh when santa barbara was ripped from us – jagger, brenda, karen, and jason; the q’s were still getting love; sonny was a slimy drug pusher; and all things lucy rocked. after they destroyed aj with the stalking storline, i stopped for a really really long time. but when pc was canceled after awhile i found my way back to the show mainly because of kelly. nowadays i waiver in and out but am coming back for sam – her relationship with her family, her big sister feel with maxie and spinelli, and yes her friendship with jason. there are actors who just don’t catch on with some viewers -i get it, but this news of kelly possibly leaving came out of nowhere and was/is a shock to her fans. i hope it’s not true and agree if she leaves, don’t recast. Log in to Reply cooper103189 August 9, 2009 if kemo does opt to leave, then sam should leave the show. it would be horrible if they recasted her, no one would fit. kemo brings spunk to sam the way no one could ever mimic. she originated sam mc call and no one should fill those shoes. Log in to Reply franknbettys August 9, 2009 JUST AN FYI EET I call her SPAM (as do many of us) because you attack a favorite of ours with “Lizzard”. I have like Liz since she first came to town as a Teen and as she has grown…. YES I love Liason but if not I think her with Nik is kinda cute. I really don’t like any woman whos Husband treated them like dirt going back… no matter if he was drugged or not. I think Sam is better without Jason… He caused her to do things that destroyed her charater and cause many to dislike her. LuSam was hot and equall and open… As a Fan of hers throwing slams against Liz just makes more people dislike you and what your opinion is. GROW UP… Stop with the childish name calling this is a site to gossip… pass info… dreanm up storylines… and discuss the show, actors, charaters, and writers but really the bashing just makes people like me skip your comments. Yes I hope that JaSam is a dream or he is out of his mind but not because of KeMo but because thats against his charater, And as her fan you should want her to have a fiesty, hot, sexy story with a many she does not have to wear her Peepshow clothes to get his attention… Lucky … Dante… Spin… Now those guys whould make her better. Claudia is like a rollercoaster just when yo uthink they will fix the character she goes right back again… I can’t figure out where they are going with her… I don’t think they do either… Any way… Lets stop calling names and start talking like the smart men and women we are….

You say you don’t want people attacking characters, yet you (and others) attack other posters. Which is worse? You say you don’t like nicknames for characters, yet you call Sam “SPAM”. You say we should start “talking like smart men and women” yet you ‘yell’ at posters to “GROW UP” and tell them that if they don’t like Liz then you (and others) are going to “dislike” them. I agree that we should be more respectful of each other, but I think hurling accusations at people, name calling (each other), and making the ‘debates’ personal is certainly going to make the converstations nastier. Personally, I don’t mind nicknames for characters, or attacking/criticizing characters. I don’t see any harm in it since they’re fictional. I understand some people don’t like it, especially when it’s directed towards a character they like, but it’s common on most soap blogs/forums and that’s not going to change anytime soon. And I don’t see it as justification to insult a poster (as has happened from time to time on DC as well as other sites.) Log in to Reply Ravennite613 August 11, 2009 While I understand the need to lay off the name bashing against characters..I also think its not that hard to get a posters name correct.

Look if we *honestly* want respectful coversations on here then we just have to remember it goes both ways. Log in to Reply sueboo54321 August 11, 2009 I would just like to point out that I was the one who sort of called Monaco “chemo”. It wasn’t in this thread at all and it was really a typo of sorts. I dictate my posts lately because my left wrist is in a cast and my right hand has an IV attached to it. My niece was typing and she doesn’t watch GH. I said “Kemo”. She typed chemo. KeMo isn’t a word. When I said spellcheck, I was referring to spellcheck because she always runs spellcheck because I ask her to. I assumed it was a spellcheck issue but it was really my niece typing what I said. I just asked her. She is typing again and still could care less about GH. She only watches American Idol. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 11, 2009 Actually that was a mistake, I was so annoyed at the “grow up” rudeness that I didnt bother to check, particularly when the “grow up” crap comes after me saying how tired I was of the hating. Sueboo, if the Chemo thing was a mistake, then I apologize, but given the tenor of your attacks on Kelly and Sam in the past, I am sure you can understand where “blame spellcheck” might have sounded a bit lame. And again, how come every time someone rants about nicknames its after one of my posts, and absolutely NEVER after the use of Chewbecca, Spam, the Claw, the Skank, Teethan, Shrewlu, Sucky, Sucktard, or any of the other derogatory names that get used around here. I am tired of getting singled out and the funny thing is maxsmom has been so nice that I actually switched to using “J/L” since I just cant bring myself to use you know what, but Lizard is based on her name being LIZ. One of my closest friends in college was named Liz, guess what she called herself all the time — LIZARD. It would be one thing if I had a little hissy fit every time someone called Sam Spam and then used the name Lizard, but I dont unlike you who says dont call Liz Lizard and then make a jab about Sam having to where her PEEPSHOW clothes. I think those that call Claudia the SKANK are going a bit far and I cringe a little for NP over the term teethan because thats really his teeth, but I dont believe I have any right to police anyone. The only time I have ever objected is when KeMo and SJB were personally called really awful names which I wont repeat here. So I tell you what FranksnBettys, can we please go back to you skipping over my posts. I really liked it much better that way.

How do you feel about that? ___________________________________________ 1) I would never call a poster ignorant, and I find it offensive to all posters here that someone would call you that. I would not take offense to zealot because to me most Sam fans have that passion, devotion so it is a good thing Daisy as a fairly new poster I have never bore witness to past offenses. My post was an overall comment directed to all not just to EET. Do I get upset when EET calls Liz Lizard, or any thing else, no because they are words on a screen and just her way. But there are many zealot Liason fans out there who think its offensive, but like you said it has to go both ways. Have I been guilty of calling Sam Spam, heck yeah..and it usually comes on the heels of some spoiler that boils my blood. Do I think Sam is Spam no, I really do like her.

Too often I see people express outrage over what people say about characters, yet seem to have no problem with personal attacks against posters. Log in to Reply sab667 February 13, 2014 looking at this thread years later, the attacks against kemo were so uncalled for Log in to Reply doodleynoodle August 8, 2009 “Recasting Kelly Monoco as Sam McCall is like McDonalds changing its french fry recipe…” Or Hormel…changing it’s SPAM recipe. It would be the end of the world as we know it. :~ Log in to Reply samrocks August 8, 2009 See those sentences right there are reasons you should never drink and type and at this time of day! EET, we are kindred spirits! Season, you are dead to me (yet again). Anyone who attempts to seriously argue that Jack is any more than *half* the man Sawyer is no friend of mine! Log in to Reply LovelyStar August 8, 2009 My thoughts exactly. I thought the casting call could be for Claudia…more like … I hope it’s to recast Claudia!

Log in to Reply VenusInPink August 8, 2009 There would still have to be a storyline with Lucky in it for any actor to play though. I don’t think it’s anything to do with Greg’s acting ability, it’s the writing that’s been in the toilet. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
