    FYI Days Of Our Lives writers this is the reason your ratings are so bad! You keep getting rid of good characters and replacing them with characters and stories we don't give a crap about. Plus you tell us to be patient that we'll get the pay off we want but you never deliever! You leave us hanging! And it pisses us off! Especially when some one a producer or writer or whatever does an interview and says that Nathan and Melanie are the end game and it turns out they were lying through their teeth! Get it together people! Start listening and be as loyal to the fans as they have been to you or more of us are going to walk away all together!

    I won't miss him at all. He has been barely used since he came on the show. His storyline with Melanie happened almost all off screen. They are supposed to be what soulmates? She barely spoke to him all year and the show spent tons of time focusing on how much Philip and Melanie love each other. I guess the writing staff was as bored with the idea of the Melanie and Nathan as I was.

    But what I don't understand is why the heck was he rooting for him and Melanie when he was in a story all year with Stephanie, yet I never heard one peep out of him in support of that storyline. That always rubbed me the wrong way.

    Best of luck to the actor...but I am not surprised by this decision to let him go at all.

    Mark Hapka fired from DOOL ! I am now convince, the writers at DOOL are crazy ! I've never wrote about any soap star leaving a soap. Not even when Zack left AMC , but again............you guys are crazy ! The romance between Mel and Nathan is fantastic, and you guys are going to throw it out the window ! Honestly, I won't be watching this soap after Nathan leaves because just when the fans get all into the story line, the writers cut it out ! STUPID. I continued to watch even after Ari left, but this is too much.

    Do the writers at DOOL ever wonder why they are never, ever in the running for best writers of a soap? The producers of this soap should start asking this question ! THE LATEST STUPID DECISION IS FIRING MARK HAPKA , WHO PLAYS NATHAN. WOW! YOU GUYS CAN COME UP WITH A GREAT STORYLINE AND JUST WHEN ALL THE FANS ARE WATCHING, YOU CUT THE STORY AND SEND THE ACTOR PACKING. GENIUS!!

    Stupidest decision by Days! Let go Melanie as she is over dramatic and her voice is so annoying! she thinks she is still playing annie! she does not portray a real actor - she plays a person trying to act - Nathan and Melanie don't belong together or do nathan and whiny needy insecure stefanie. get rid of stefanie, kayla and melanie and even philip is getting annoying and get some new fresh faces in town that can ACT. The show is getting more and more boring especially that sami is in every scene and what for? her life is a bore and now they are making this poor l ittle johnny character act out somethign traumatic - i hope it doesn't scar this poor kid in real life....it's all about sami's brood of 4 and that gets old. have will and abby get pregnant since that is real life - create some trouble for teens and please get rid of chad another bad annoying actor who is together with melanie in real life so exit them both...brady - they are not using him to the fullest potential and the whole set needs a revamping - they need a new restaurant to go to instead of the pub and they need to kick that nosy busybody kayla out - she ruined her reputation and now i can't wait to see somethign horrible happen to her...and lexie - they bring her on with no husband and child - once in a blue moon. it's all so convoluted and they need doug and julie in there to run a restaurant/bar/karaoke place....vivienne is also underutilized and the only one who brings true comedy to the show like she did last time but days does not play her right - she is a hoot as was anna - people want to laugh in this depressed economy - not be traumatized by a little boy losing his eyes to cancer - how awful. James Scott brings class to the show but he is way too good for days - he needs a nighttime serial or a james bond role. he's a fabulous actor ! Nathan looks like and can play a young Frank Sinatra - google his pictures and you will see the striking resemblance!

    As did one of our other posts, I created this login to comment on this. I have been watching Days since the '80's and by far this one of the STUPIDEST decisions they have made. We've all been waiting for Nathan and Melanie to get together and what better actor to portray Nathan than Mark. I seriously hope they reconsider this foolish decision. They have a great storyline and as one person posted it would be great to see Stephanie get what she deserves, get rid of her and also skip the new addition to the Hernandez family, there is no sense in that.

    I hope that at some point they bring back the character of Nathan. I have loved to see how far Mel has come since comming to Salam. I think it was the wrong choice to let him go. Lets hope that the writters have someting even better in store. Lets just hope they don't put Mel and Phillip back together for the "baby". Don't think I could handel that.
