I’m going to open this post with a commentary on something that has been irking me for the past week, and since this is my site and space, I thought I’d take this time to say it. I am a regular poster at the Soapcentral Y&R Board and I posted something I found in one of the latest editions of SOAP OPERA WEEKLY magazine. It had something to do with Tucker’s accident at Abby’s hand and that Stephen was supposedly out as Tucker. It seems I forgot a question mark instead of the exclamation mark I posted. I was told that I needlessly upset the whole whack of Stephen’s fans with the possibility he might have been let go by the soap. I was also accused of saying things that weren’t true here and on my other sites by someone I will not mention. This goes back to when I was also accused of saying that this was Stephen’s official site and I was his official webmaster, something that anyone who does visit my site knows very well I would never do nor have I ever claimed such. As for the post I made to SoapCentral, given the way Emily O’Brien (Jana Fisher) was treated I suspected this might have been the same with Stephen and Tucker. His screentime has been very sporadic at best and up until May Sweeps, nearly reduced to one or two episodes per week and or propping others. This was one of the reasons I posted what I did. However, a certain group of people took it upon themselves to excoriate me like I’m a six-year-old instead of talking to me as an adult-to-adult. This was unnecessary. RENEGADE: STEPHEN NICHOLS ONLINE and RENEGADE MEDIA are the only sites online that is a fansite dedication to Stephen and one would hope that might give some pause for thought. I have unique content and good content, I pay for my webhosting and materials and do all my own capping, clipping, uploading and posting. Donations are on a voluntary basis only. I would hope that as a professional curtosey I would receive some appreciation for all the work I’ve put into this site. I’ve been a fan of Stephen’s for a good twenty five years ever since his debut on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Steve “Patch” Johnson. I would hope that would mean something. I’ve been respectful of these people and only said something to defend myself from those who ‘called me out’ on something that was petty and would have been done with through an email through this site and in private. You know, that professional curtosey and the benefit of the doubt?

Yours, Dianne

  1. […] So anyone thinking this is Stephen’s official site, read the disclaimer and also read this post. So anyone from his “team” thinking I’m talking smack, remember this IS a fan […]
