I am sure no-one will object to my sharing this, he has asked for people who have read it to pass it around accordingly. With that said:

The Pen is Mightier Than The Spork: Stepping Back

Please, please take a few minutes to read it and pass it on. It outlines his thoughts and feelings regarding the feedback of CoE, from the fanbase.

Thank you.

Whether I liked how things turned out or not, I thought the story was brilliant and certainly kept me interested. 

I do continue to worry about fans of anything making violent statements to those involved in the process, whehter its writers of a TV show or the manager/owner/coach of a sports team.  Recently, the regents of the University of North Dakota voted to change their mascot.  Most received personal, violent threats regarding this action.

... all the threats and hate-speak. It's a fictional TV show people. If you can't understand that, you have problems. Sure, some of the things that happened made me upset, but to me that's what made it such a great season. The fact that it was challenging, engaging, and even upsetting shows how great the scripts were, to me at least.
