Robin Strasser's Message To Fans

I encouraged people to call her hot-line the other day and it has since crashed. We Love Soaps has up a message from Robin she sent out herself after fans couldn't reach her phone line. It reads in part: 
 
From my viewpoint:
All the revisionist corporate spinning can NOT diminish or squelch the VALUE, the PASSIONATE LOYALTY, and the LOVE our audiences have for these shows.

A suggestion? In your way, be creative, and come up with ways to be as positive as you can muster but-- I implore you: put 'thought into action'... be pro-active.

If MY little Hotline can be CRASHED BY THE VOLUME OF CALLERS----what MIGHT happen if the energies of our fans went in other effective directions? I'm just asking.

Would you kindly help a Veteran Diva with a computer skills deficiency out? Please?

Blast, Twitter,Facebook and Chat Room this unexpurgated and un-edited piece of my mind.

And DO NOT DELETE THIS PLEASE:

I THANK YOU...OUR ENTIRE CAST/CREW/PRODUCTION AND DESIGN TEAMS THANK YOU...AND THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF THOSE AFFECTED BY THIS IMPENDING LOSS: THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU!!!!!!!
(yes, you are right...paraphrased shamelessly from James Cagney's Oscar winning Yankee Doodle Dandy
)

Read her entire note at We Love Soaps.  And to Robin? Thank you for recognizing just how important this is to us.

Karen, Robin Strasser is now on Twitter, too.

I'm still stunned over this.

Happened to see Robin at one of the first Super Soap Weekends (ironically sponsored by Disney), and was impressed at how normal she was. There she stood,tiny lady that she is, in her lovely dress she wore to her interviews, giving out autographs and smiling and chatting with fans on into the afternoon......in a pair of bedroom slippers!!!! hahaha I shall remember it for a very long time! She treated us all as so important...and i'll think of her that way too. Thanks for all you've done........you too Karen, above and beyond the call of duty, much thanks and a big hug!

It can't work in reality, that is exactly what I suppose.
