    I have noticed lately that some people around here - not too many, but some - seem awfully sure of themselves regarding what's going to happen on the show, or what the results (usually bad) would be if Dan Schneider make certain decisions for the plotline.

    "This is what he feels. Absolutely guaranteed."

    "This is how she feels. No question whatsoever."

    "There is no way that could happen. It's impossible."

    "It has to happen like this. There's no other possibility."

    It is very admirable that the Seddie shippers are making such an effort to draw more Creddie and Cam shippers to this Wiki, but I am skeptical as to whether it will amount to anything. I'm not saying that they should give up, but I think they should understand what they're up against.

    In my view, this has become something of a self-perpetuating cycle. Over time, the Seddiers increasingly dominated the Wiki, the Creddiers got discouraged and left, and now the Seddiers have basically taken over (whether they intended to do so or not).

    A while back, somebody deleted the word "Crush" from Carly's entry on the Freddie Benson page and revised it to say that Freddie had gotten over his crush on Carly, and then did the same thing on Carly's page, wri…
