Does Chuck dislike us?


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I was reading his interview in the writer's digest and I came upon this.

Yet you have an incredibly large fan base that even has its own name and website-The Cult. Did they make you feel like a success?

Chuck: I try to forget about the expectation that's out there and the audience listening for the next thing so that i'm not trying to please them. [B]I've spent a huge amount of time not communicating with these folks and denying that they exist.[/B] You realize you have no control over how you are perceived. I want to focus my energy on the thing I can control--which is the next book.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this interview, but I don't know if I am misreading it, or if what he is saying is perfectly normal.

What sprang this up was when I was reading this and when I thought about when I met him in person and I mentioned I was a part of The Cult and he had an odd expression and said that that was not his actual site, it is just a fan site. I didn't expect him to be blown away. Does he think we are some kind of people that worship him and sacrifice animals and drink their blood whilst lighting candles around Chuck-shrines? It seems like he said he denies that we exist.

If I am misinterpreting this, please say something.

I also recommend you buy the October Edition of "Writer's Digest," that Dennis made a thread about (Thanks). They will be taking off the shelves on October the 16.
