    When it comes up in discussion I praise it.  It's just not discussed that much.  I also like season seven and season four.  Season five and three are about equal to me.  
    The point was I was very enthusiastic about the show in season six.  I was never missing repeats, even though I had the seasons.  I was writing fan fiction, finding everything I could on the show That enthusiasm was still there for season seven.
     It was season eight where I started to lose my enthusiasm, simply because of how bad, I thought, season eight was.  Seasons nine and ten aren't much better.  After three years of what I consider mostly crappy stories; indeed, if any stories, for Lenny,  I've become quite cynical about the shows ability to do anything decent for them.  The show does Sheldon and Shamy now.  
    I would guess, from the messages, it was because you feel like there is something wrong with me now, compared to previously.  And they saw that as a personal attack.  The Oh my.... was a bit snarky. But, I left the post up.

    You can find a lot of even more interesting posts of mine in various other threads. 
    Nope, if your in season six, I was a very enthusiastic supporter of the show.  
    You should see some of the posts of mine that got hidden.   I can be sarcastic and snarky with the best of them. It used to be allowed here, so you will quite likely find a lot of snarky comments in a lot of posts, prior to mid season nine.   
    Several things.  First, Season eight, nine and ten happened.  I don't expect every episode to be about Leonard and Penny.  I loved season four, and they weren't even together.  But, I didn't like the way they were written, or mostly how little they were together alone in scenes (For example, Penny and Sheldon had more time alone, on screen, than Leonard and Penny did in season eight until the last show) over the last three seasons.  Which should explain my dissatisfaction you see now.  
    Second, I became a moderator, which I take very seriously.  Tripper ran this board (and the site it's attached to) for seven years without one.  Traffic got to the point where it was helpful to have a moderator to pair with his being the admin.  As a result of becoming a moderator, my snark dropped.  I do get my required level of snark at another forum, a general forum, with certain sections with no rules.    
    Third, the rules were changed.  For a while, in late season eight and early season nine, there were some rather snarky exchanges, that escalated into rather nasty personal attacks.  Simply over differences of opinion.  Tripper and I talked it over (Tripper has final say), and decided, Snarky, sarcastic, aggressive questioning, (the full list is in the rules) weren't going to be allowed. So, we added some rules to cut down on those snarky, sarcastic comments.  We decided they weren't very productive.  Hence, why you don't see snark from me.  
    If that's not cool, it's not cool.  I value Tripper's trust, more than being cool.

     First off, I want to thank those that reported posts INSTEAD of answering them.   
    Now, let me make this clear, anyone, who is generous enough to bring spoilers to the forum, should be thanked, period.   When it come to spoilers or information from a taping, WE GET WHAT WE GET.  If you want to ask politely if there is any other information, fine.  But if there isn't, or that person doesn't want to provide the information,  personal attacks on the person providing spoilers will not be tolerated.  Nor should you generalize what other ships are doing.  
    While on that subject, spoilers go in the discussion thread.  I moved several posts from the Shamy thread, to the discussion thread. YES, the moderator moved posts to where they belong.    If you have a question on that, PM me.  
    Now, lets talk about those who answered posts, instead of reporting them.  Over 30 posts have been hidden or edited.  I spent about an hour and a half this morning straightening out a mess, and another couple of hours tonight.  Warnings, are being discussed from this morning and this evening.   Those whose post was outside the rules, and those who replied to that post, again outside the rules.

    Yeah, and in my mind, they messed the meaning up very badly.  A better alternative would have been for them to say goodbye to Sheldon at the apartment, and Penny saying goodbye to Leonard at the airport.

    At least, with Penny, they would just have to stick her behind the island.

    Like both weddings?  Or are you claiming interrupting sharing a tootbrush holder is the same as interrupting a wedding, twice at that.  
    You mean when Amy interrupted Lenny eating after their engagement?  You mean after Amy threw him out of her apartment?   Yeah as did Leonard.  
     
    If so, then why do we get what feels like condescension with "Oh, it isn't that bad", or "it's funny"?
     
    Let's look at seasons six, seven and eight.  You may have had a problem season 6, but at least they had plots together.   Season six was a big Lenny years, but Shamy only had four less shows with plots or major scenes than Lenny.   Season seven was pretty even over all, but season eight.  Yeah, Shamy had more than twice the screen time that Lenny had.  Shenny had more screen time than Lenny.  And almost half had Shamy plots or major scenes.  
    The scene where Sheldon and Amy were shown, was not interrupted.  It was only into the tag, when Shamy wasn't even shown, that it was interrupted.   You want to compare breakups?  Shamy spent nine episodes broken up, and every one of those episodes had something to do with the breakup.  I really don't see how that compares to the 40 episodes Lenny spent broken up, where less than five or six had to do with their being broken up.   Not to mention Leonard in a serious relationship with someone else.  How serious was the relationship with Dave for Amy?  I would have thought Big Bear and Valentino were good.  
     
    This isn't true.  See season eight.  Or season nine, where they almost had twice the screen time of Lenny.  I'd like to know how you think anyone else dominated when they have, more than or almost, twice as much screen time as any other couple.  
    Hopeful is something that's been driven out of a lot of Lennys.  We thought we were set up for a good season eight.  Wedding planning, moving out etc.  You see how that worked out.   Then season nine was going to be good, because they were married.  Then season 10.  Plus, in each of those seasons, complaints about how things were going early in the season were met with "It will get better in the second half".  After a while, when you keep getting told it will get better, and it doesn't, you quit believing it will.

    RJ, this isn't about you, just my explanation for what you are asking.  
     In my case, I get tired of hearing, "oh, that's not so bad", or "I don't understand why that upsets you".  Most cases, the only way you can get it across is to make it about the couple they love.   Someone doesn't see why Sheldon interrupting a Leonard and Penny upsets some people?  Let's make it Leonard and Penny interrupting a tender Shamy moment.  How well does that go over?  Do you see why we don't like it?  The problem is most of those have to be fictitious examples, as their aren't very many real show examples.

    Nope, many of us realize it is a sitcom and the show has been able to pull off tender moments, without laughs.   It's just for that particular scene wasn't, the attempt at comedy wasn't very funny to some of us.
  21. 5Mississippis liked a post in a topic by Tensor in [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10   
    Yep, and I'll say it again.  I found it forced and unfunny.  
  22. 5Mississippis liked a post in a topic by Tensor in [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10   
    I'm glad for you.  If you find it funny, that's great.  I didn't, and found it forced.  
    That's why I would have found it funny with them entering the room without knocking.   And people have been in Sheldon's room before, without his permission, so that wouldn't be unrealistic.  Penny during her role-playing phase.  Penny when Sheldon was trying to figure out "Darling", and Leonard when he slapped Sheldon.  
  23. 5Mississippis liked a post in a topic by Tensor in [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10   
    I thought the lines were forced, and particularly unfunny.  Just like Sheldon's presence in the scene.  What would have been funny, was instead of politely knocking, while Shamy was playing their D and D "game" in Sheldon's room, Lenny should have just barged in and interrupted them
