Did Andromeda fandom gain any Sorbo fans from Hercules? I mean, Sorbo doesn't really seem the sort of person I'd follow across fandoms, but what do I know? --Betty 21:04, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Most of the Drom fans I know HATE Sorbo. I'll have to ask my Slipstream insider if there were any Herc/Xena fen around at the board's inception. (My gut feeling is that it was mostly Trekkies). --Ari 21:07, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Heh. Possibly the wiki needs a page on sorbo. Maybe heavily linked to anti-fandom. --Betty 21:08, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree with Ari. Anit-Sorbo sentiment was significant among Andromeda fans.Sorbo really ruined the show, IMO. (I wasn't on Slipstream but I heard about the Wolfe controvery via AICN. Although that doesn't mean that *no-one* watched the show for Sorbo. Mary Crawford might shed some light re: Herc fandom migration? --Par avion 21:21, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

The history of Drom fandom's relationship with its PTB is really fascinating. I hope someone more familiar with it than I am will write it up for the wiki.--Ari 21:23, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
