how can everyone say gizzie was the only reason they watch grey's? they were together for like 5 episodes. that's it. and for part of that even they realized their lack of chemistry
I understand that all of you Gizzie lovers are upset, but don't get mad that nobody cares about what you think. Sure, sending letters and emails and things to people such as Ausiello could help, but also think about it this way. Maybe because they got too much mail about it, maybe that's why nobody's letters got answered. There is only so much someone can do. And I still find it sad that 1 television non couple will make you stop watching a show. Like I mentioned, I was a George and Callie shipper all the way, but that doesn't seem like it will come back, but does that make me hate the show or stop watching it? No, but I would like to see Callie stop getting the crappy stuff. She also needs to get a good storyline, but of course the only time she gets one, is if Izzie says something stupid to people.
It's better if Izzie and George will be just friends ... Izzie is to good for George, she desirves somebody better!
Devin, that is the point the Gizzie fans are trying to make. We have no idea what the majority of fans think, as 21 millions in the US alone watch the show, and this might reach the 100 millions in the world, not even 100 000 Grey fans post on the Net. Yet Aussiello and the likes used a 400 people panel poll, of which many Gizzie fans were not even aware of, to determine that 95% of the United States hated Gizzie. The critics always use the Net to say everyone hates Gizzie, and really they have no idea unless they talk to the millions of fans. The Gizzie fans have never pretended to be the majority, we only said that there were a whole lot of us out there that we knew of. That is what makes us angry, the pretending we don't exist when truth be told, the people who love Gizzie really do completely and totally. To act like those fans do not exist is insulting. I knew a critic who was pro-Gizzie who didn't even know about any other board except ABC and TWEOP and honestly thought everyone on the Net hated them. When I sent him all the Gizzie fan sites and he saw the number of Gizzie fan that posted on the Net, he was positively surprised. There are a lot of us, yet the fake perception that everyone hates Gizzie is still being believed both by Gizzie haters and fans. And that false perception is probably what killed our couple. I can tell you I watch the show with my entire dorm and Gizzie is the one couple we all love and watch for. When they were together, we would watch religiously the show, but since they broke up, most of us don't watch anymore. The passion is gone. Most Gizzie fans I know watch for those two and those two alone and I know many who have quit the show when they ended. I think I will follow them. I am not a Grey fan, it is a cliche, boring, preeictable soapy show. I am a Gizzie fan, they are real, wonderful, hearbbreaking and so touching. They are why I watched.
I was on TWOP over the summer when Kristen announced Shonda was seriously thinking of dropping Gizzie and their words were Shonda has finally listened to us, the real fans, I knew we could get her to see things our way. People on TWOP constantly brag about being smarter than Shonda. In fact the Grey matter part of TWOP is called We could write the show better than her. They constantly say if Shonda let us write, the show would be so much better They say the Gizzie fans are stupid teenagers who know nothing about life and nobody should take them seriously. After the panel, they said we will get Shonda to fire Lexie and end Gizzie. They attacked the Gizzie fans who dared to post on the Gizzie thread there so much, the mod had to close the thread four times and warn the fans there to stop attacking the Gizzie fans, and harassing them. And yes, they have boasted many times about getting Shonda to do what they want. I was on the board not even two weeks ago, and they said things Gizzie will never happen again because we were able to help Shonda realize her mistake, what would she do without us? And so on. Their next goal? To get Rose fired TWOP people are very scary. That is why they are called the dog pound. They hate Gizzie almost as intensely as they do Katie and their hate for Katherine is very scary, and they often say that if they hate Gizzie, it means the majority of the fanbase does, because they represent most fans who watch the show. They honestly think that the few of them who post there are the best representation of the fanbase, they keep saying so, talk about arrogance. Oh and that their board is the only one of any significance. When told about all the sites with a lot of Gizzie fans, I was told that those sites did not matter, the fans there were shallow idiots, not smart, mature viewers like them who knew what made shows work This was not posted on the site but sent to me by PMs. They ddin't care about all the Gizzie fans, they see themselves as the only saviors of the show and those who know what is really good for this show, and yes this is a literal quotation
people are talking about the hundreds of people they know via internet who are gizzie fans. since 5% of the fanbase is represented on the internet, we can assume there are approximately 1 million grey's anatomy fans represented online. a few hundred or even a few thousand isn't much compared to 1 million.
Hate mail? Nobody sent Assiello hate mail, we just said we loved the couple and if they were going to be together, but he never answered any of the emails. You don't get the hate, the guy knows Gizzie has a big fanbase, we sent him the sites and the links to many Gizzie fansiets, yet he keeps saying NOBODY likes the couple, not a minority, NOBODY and misrepresenting the facts to Shonda, telling her everyone hates the couple and when will she rectify the mistake and we are not suppose to be angry. The Gizzie fans are heartbroken and he is having a celebration, rubbing it in and you don't get the hate? You can't be that dim, right? He has been b ashing our couple, ignoring the Gizzie fanbase and the rare time he has published Gizzie letters, he distorted them. I sent him a letter about my love for Gizzie and MerDer, he just let out the MerDer part and cut the Gizzie part off. A friend of mine sent a pro-Gizzie, anti-Lexzie letter and he cut off parts of her letter to make it seem like it was a pro-Lexzie letter. One of my friends sent a letter saying she didn't know why he kept saying nobody loved Gizzie, because everyone of HER FRIENDS loved them. He cut the friends part and made it seem like my friend said everyone loved Gizzie, and then laughed at her and said whatever, you are really delusional. He cut off part of her letter to make her seem like she was saying something she wasn,t.. And you don't get the hate? He didn't only do that with Gizzie. A friend of mine loved a couple on another show, another couple he hated, and he also rewrote her letter to make her seem like an idiot. The man is an ass and a fraud George and Izzie had real love, the real deal, but because some shallow teenagers could not get over George's looks, I am losing the best couple I have ever seen, so don't tell me I don't have the right to be angry. It just makes me that much angrier
I just have to add one more thing. I was on TWOP and NO ONE was bragging that Shonda could be bullied into doing what they wanted. No one. Okay, I get it, Gizzie may be over. Still, why attack other boards?
I said one Gizzie fan did it on the LAST poll, nobody else on our site wanted to do it, and he was pretty much shunned for it. The results ended up 50-50, there were at least 3 Gizzie haters I knew who were spamming it. This time around, nobody wanted to spam it, and it is pretty obvious we didn't as the against side is getting 70% of the vote and keeps rising. If some Gizzie fans are spamming, they are either doing a really lousy job or the other site is spamming it 100 times harder. I have been all over the Net and there is NO way in hell Gizzie has such a little fanbase, especially since on all the other polls they are scoring so well. So every single day at the same hour, hundreds and hundreds of Gizzie haters get together to vote on a poll, and all those people are against Gizzie, please! You do remember this poll is available to people all over the world, right, and that people don't have the same hours. Over on one of the Gizzie fansite I go to, there are activities at all hours of the day because we come from all over the world qand when one of us sleep, others are awake. But you expect me to believe that for two weeks straight, the same number of people has been voting at the same hour of the day against Gizzie. You are either very naive or you think ABC is. And again, Internet is 5% of the fanbase, so one poll does not mean Gizzie is hated, just that the Gizzie fans don't have the energy to spam all day an that most of us have lives. I know 4 people who have admitted to spamming the poll against Gizzie, and doing it for hours on end since the very first day, believe you me, that can change a poll result drastically.
It's IMPOSSIBLE to say who spammed what poll. There are many ways to try to alter the outcome of a poll. Some fanbases keep the link to themselves and don't post it on a common board. As pointed out above, certain ages tend to cluster to certain sites, skewing the polls also. I just don't get the hate for Ausiello. Why shoot the messenger? Kristen seemed to WANT Gizzie before it actually happened, and I don't remember people making nasty nicknames about her. Quite frankly, maybe sending the man hate mail when he said he didn't like Gizzie may have made him upset?
