I think this is the most logical assessment of the situation. I think the best example of this is the edit that is already preplanned for Reid by all accounts. Correct me if I'm wrong but Lisamill is under the impression that Reid will be portrayed as cute, quirky and somewhat like a little kid. OTOH, sdl's sources say the same thing except pretty much that he'll come out looking like an indecisive bozo who relies on mommy and daddy for all decisions. Basically it's the same edit, just different spins on it.Quote:

After reading the posts from today, I have to say that I would not blame you a bit if you decided never to return to this board. I agree that many have carried on and on with their disbelief of your friendship with Reid, even after Avalon posted that you are the real deal. You have been treated unkindly to say the least and for that I apologize. I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of character and I think that you were trying to help a friend and you believed that the posters on this board were deceived by the hacker so you reached out to help Reidís fans as well. Everyone on this thread really thinks the world of Reid and I believe they just got a little over protective due to what was going on and unfortunately you were on the receiving end of their frustration of the situation. What I see when I read your posts is a very caring person that put Reid and his fans before your own personal problems and I thank you for that. I hope those that went too far will reconsider and reach out with their apologies and I hope this is the end of this subject. I hope you will reconsider and return to fort.Quote:

This is another very true and good point and ITA. Reid seems to be very successful and has plenty of money already in that he isn't holding out for an extra 10K or whatever. If he wanted to do this, I think he'd do it even if he'd earn less money than what he normally earns working. The real issue is that he doesn't want to look like a schmuck when all is said and done. He is probably trying to protect himself and his business and doesn't want ABC/TPTB/Fleiss to edit him any which way they please.Quote:

If we believe NaCF and Real Reid's post on Twitter, he solicited the haikus so it certainly seems like he was inviting the onslaught of poets IMO.
I would watch it if it were Wes.... because? It would at least be interesting unlike Kyp or Jake. Jake would be a sorry second as we would have a great laugh AT him and that is not cool either. Wes is a complicated character and it would be interesting to see the way his mind works on this show and what he would do and say to prevent bad editing....Quote:

Ok. this is it, the errors in my posts? Thank you for responding.
Please allow me to set the record straight.
They of course put out feelers, but no contracts have been offered. If you have seen one. please produce it, but I know that it does not exist.
Directly to your points:
1. After my posts, the producers said repeatedly that no decisions have been made. It's all over the media, they are exploring multiple options.
2. If I'm not mistaken, CH said in a recent blog that they were looking at moving in a different direction. He allowed that they couldn't go wrong with Reid, Kip, Jake, etc. but that they were vetting new candidates.
3. "The resumes are thin" is a very old saying, meaning not that they are few in number, or that they contain not enough pages, or the paper is of poor quality, but that they are not desirable in substance. Which is why they have not made a decision yet.
4. Ok, so you are saying that Reid did the Bach'ette for no compensation at all, no pay, but he was then offered the lead in TB, and he is holding out for more money....which is the only reason why they are looking around. And there have been no counteroffers from ABC/Next.
No, I respectfully disagree.
Oh no. I think they definitely have a script in mind. Not arguing there. But anyone who follows the show would know that and anyone that watched Reid would say it would be based on his nerotic behavior and immature tendencies.Quote:
