Who are you register just to insult people on here? You seem to come demanding that every performer in the WE is respected, yet fail to show any kind of ordinary human decency and respect to people here. Don't ask for what you seem unable to give.
Some of us do know, even if at amateur level. I assume you're trolling, but if you're not, you might want to realise that people are not clones, are not all the same and therefore do not equate to your rude sweeping generalisations.
I give my all at many things, it doesn't mean I'm good at them. It doesn't mean people can't think I'm not good at something, or that I can't take someone telling me that the essay I wrote last week or the project I completed the week before that was rubbish. It's subjective, it's called an opinion, it's perfectly valid not to like someone and I for one think no performer should be immune to criticism as long as it's polite, which frankly every post other than yours has been. Anything written can be misunderstood, the maturity comes in accepting clarification of intention and moving on, not in petty insults and bullying.

No, most of us watching couldn't 'do what they do', which is why we pay money to watch other people who are being paid to do it. Both arguments make absolutely no sense, as Cactus rightly points out, when applied to any walk of life.

And a few message boards, twitter comments and stage door moments are far more avoidable than many jobs interactions with their customer base. And if most of us swore at our customer base, told them to get a life and find a hobby we'd no longer be employed.
But of course actors are far more important and fragile than us normal bods who also work hard for a living
And to phantom, which cheaper seats have the best view?

As for respect for performers. Yes I have plenty and plenty of that for those who have earned it. Being an actor doesn't automatically earn you a respect. Because, strictly and technically speaking, actors act because they want to, and not because they are doing us a favrour.
There are performances that make you feel that it is such a privilege just to be there to witness them. Those nights will be remembered and treasured by us theatre-lovers for the rest of our lives. Failing that, plenty of perfs are very enjoyable and pleasant, and we admire all the talented people who worked so hard to make it possible.
Calling expressing our opinions "abuse of actors" just shows the lack of understanding what performing arts are about.
As for POTO, the end seats of Dress Circle or Upper Circle front row are not bad. How much are they now?

Upper Circle was £45 when I went last year, not sure if the ends count as cheaper restricted view or not though. Frankly the whole Upper Circle should be priced lower than that, the view is awful...
