I'm sorry, I can't bring myself to say 'Mr Fry' - that seems garishly sychophantic and 'Stephen' inappropriately familiar. So 'Stephen Fry' it is. Maybe in the future 'Stevie' or 'Fryster' but for now...'Stephen Fry'. Yes I'm comfortable with that.

Anyway, does Steviepoops read this forum or are we all yammering away in the alley behind the theatre like a hoard of lovely nothing-faces?

Who knows? It seems he reads responses to his blessays/Dork Talk column judging by the one where he responded to people freaking out and misunderstanding his comments about Terry Pratchett books from a previous article. He does seem to be aware of those people who say they want more frequent podgrams and blessays, longer ones, raw ones, structured ones. Based on all that he may look at the comments on there from time to time unless all these people have been seen sending letters to him via snail mail. But as to the forum I have no idea. He seems such a busy man I can't fathom how he even has time to do all the things he does.

Yes.

I do visit the site daily, I do read all your comments and discussions but as I hope you can understand, it is almost always impossible to reply personally.

Homepage has been updated. And they misspelled "wil".

I think of myself as someone who is filled with love, whose only purpose in life was to achieve love. - Stephen Fry

I generally make the same assumption about celebrity website forums. Not that I'm saying Mr. Fry is lying about checking the forums. I guess I would never assume anything I post here would be read by anyone other than the regular posters out in the interwebnether, not celebs.

BlahBlah - Stephen reads, Stephen doesn't read - ultimately this is a fantatsic place because we can came here with one common interest - the man himself - and many of us have found multiple things in common.

It is thanks to the very existence of this site that many people have found support that they may not otherwise have had. People dealing with their sexuality, with depression and at times with obsession have found support and like minded people.

I believe Stephen looks in when he can but I cant blame him for not replying. If he replies to you and not to me, Im going to be upset aren't I? So it is best to read and respond generally to the group rather than to individuals.

There's also a danger of people who are "spoken to" to think they are more worthy than others which is bollocks

I know what Im trying to say...

I don't think anyone was complaining Occy or expecting any kind of response. Why should we? I come here to talk to people I've made friends with and are interested in hearing from. I like discussing topics of interest to me like for example on the multimedia board I like talking about Doctor Who with other fans and see what exciting links and treasures other fans have found. I like hearing what people from around the world have say about their everyday lives. Others will come here looking for support for various reasons. I like coming here because people are level headed and aren't arrogant and up their own arses like people on some forums I've been on are. I don't like the tunnel vision some forums impose on it's users.

That's true. I can honestly say this is the nicest forum I've been on. There aren't any arguements. I'm quite shy so all I usually do is lurk but everyone here seems so friendly. It wouldn't really matter if stephen didn't read the forum but it's good if he does

Yeah, not complaining in any way. I just don't get caught up in the idea of whether he reads the posts or not. I just post here because I find a lot of what's going on fun and amusing.
