I just stumbled onto this site as i was looking for VD ratings. I am disappointed by the negative tones of the "fans" on this site. I have been a faithful viewer since season one, I never miss an episode whether the show is on hiatus or not. I will agree with some that Season 4 has had it's challenges (esp. since Elena has lost her humanity...I don't like Elena this way) but a true fan would not put down the show the way people are on this site. Everyone has a right to their opinions, but please do not claim to be a fan of TVD and in the next breath put the show, the writers, and the actors down.
