    JMS also said at one point that the content of the show had little to do with the reasons they dropped it, in comparison to TNTs take on the shows audience. Apparently the Crusade people would only tune in to Crusade, then ditch all the other programming TNT had lined up. They wanted programming that contributed the overall audience.

    Since TNTs philosphy is based more on sex and violence/action, than content and intellect, its easy enough to see where people who insist on appealing to the lowest point of psychology/common denominator lose interest.

    Frankly, these people make me sick.

    I thought he stayed out of all non-moderated groups (except for a comics newsgroup) out of fear of story ideas.

    JMS used the unmoderated group when the moderated group broke down a few years ago.

    Someone may have emailed JMS copies of these postings, who then went to the unmoderated group to reply.

    The site message importer doesn't currently monitor that newsgroup. I'll either change it so it does or manually add the two messages he posted.

    Re: JMS posted in rec.arts.sf.tv yesterday

    Hi again!

    Isn't it an automated script that finds JMSs postings and places them at this site? I'm asking because yet another posting from rec.arts.sf.tv is missing here. Ok, it was just an answer to someone who kept complaining about the guy who made the first erroneous assumptions (and who had apologized personally to JMS) in the posting referred to above, but still...

    I did ignore a great number of them, including all the really egregious ones
    cited earlier.

    The consequences were that we only got 13 episodes.

    Hi,
    I don't know how you find JMSs posts, but I just wanted you to know that he posted an answer to the question "What would have happened if you skipped the notes from TNT" yesterday 17/3 at 23.37 in rec.arts.sf.tv.
