Yeah, I need to deal with this spam. I've gotten lazy about deleting it since we get so few comments anyway. I'll get to that right now. There were a lot of positive comments on my BtS review of Journey's End, yes, but there were a lot of negative ones as well. I haven't looked at those comments in a while but if I recall correctly some (but not all) of the more vitriolic and spam-like got magically moderated away. And I also might be conflating the comments I received from the blog with other discussions about that review I had elsewhere. Now that I go back and look at it, it is a lot cheerier than I recall. In truth, what really bothered me even more was the slew of supporters you mention, who lauded my review and bashed the others.
At the risk of interrupting the steady stream of spam regarding luggage and handbags (I hope you guys are being compensated for it -- if not, hey, why not delete it?), I'd like to point out a small discrepancy in Tom's assessment of the comments on his review of "Journey's End" on Behind the Sofa. By and large, the vast majority of the commenters agreed with his positive take on the 4th season finale, with only a very small group taking the opposite side. There were some unfortunate remarks regarding "true fans", etc., but for the most part, those comments were very much in support of Tom's review, especially in light of earlier reviews which were much less generous toward RTD. Just thought I'd set the record straight. You may now resume the full-on spam onslaught.
