I find it disconcerting that while many people have replied to your repeated argument with respectful disagreement, you can not seem to do the same for your fellow posters. Talking down to us and repeating over and over that you and only you are correct is not going to make your argument more appealing.

I understand that this is a passionate topic for you TerriP but the way you present it and repeat it makes it difficult for discussion to continue. Discussion — not echo chamber. Discussion — not personal sounding board. Please listen to others and respect that their viewpoint might be different than yours.

Patricia, thank you for saying this. This attitude infects this thread so much, whether it’s insisting that Diana was WRONG WRONG WRONG and should by lynched for her remark, Starz Marketing is consistently horrible, and now it’s how Sam chooses to act on social media. Make your argument, maybe debate for a post or two, respect what someone else is saying, and move along, as Rachel said earlier. New voices are drowned out and shut out by the constant posting of a few.

There was a comment on another site by someone who claimed to be in the biz. She noted that when Sam is asked a question, he defers to Caitriona and allows her to answer first. And for all these questions that come up, he is actually very careful about his personal life. He deflects the answers away from himself (not that he’s trying to put Caitriona in the hot seat). What do we really know about him and how he spends his day? Only what he’s willing to show us, and while there are rumors and maybe some crazy people have stalked his movements, there’s no verification of these things. He’s smarter than some are giving him credit for.
