    Having a wholesale CramFest of Sugary-Sweet BillyBoy goodness is enough to send you into diabetic shock. It made it mandatory to dislike him, to counter the overbalance of fawning emotions by the Bill-natics.

    Had Bill stayed on, or done ONE thing other than a trained seal, i.e. slap his jiggly belly and move his feet fast, people would have been able to warm up to him.

    But, the zealous nature and personal attacks that the new posters launched against venerated members soured all of us toward him.

    Enough explanation?

    Ya think, Texicana?!

    Somehow, though, I think they'll counter with:

    Just to let everyone know (so you don't wonder) I deleted a post, then deleted posts that quoted that post

    Dang. My explanation was a casualty. Oh well. If anyone still cares why I wanted Bill out, lambikins summed it up in her (his?) posts.

    fair enough.....i realize our enthusiasm may have been a little silly, but i also think some people take this waaaaaaay too seriously.

    OK, I wasn't going to touch this, but what the heck - to me, the tone of the "Billiever" posts is suspiciously so over-the-top as to seem that Bill is not their object of affection, but rather their object of ridicule. Kinda like what John Travolta was to Sissy Spacek in "Carrie".

    Sorry, Cali, if this post steps over the line.

    Lambikins checks the front of her shirt and says, "Yup, still a girl.[/i]

    Although I understand how easy it is to NOT know what gender a poster is on the Internet.

    I think I understand...it's the reason I don't like Julia Roberts...however, I have seen some overly negative attitudes on this board...it makes me wonder if some of the more outspoken members of this site are as forthcoming with their criticism in "real life," per se.
