Is it unusual for fans to write for the show?

I'm not asking if the writers are fans of the show.

I've written for many shows including The Simpsons. I don't feel like I went through all the proper channels to be able to do so, it feels like I was afforded opportunities that most fans aren't because I started writing for shows like The Simpsons when I was three or four years old, and frankly it doesn't show because I'm a genius.

I was a writer from 1995 to 2000. Oakley and Weinstein brought me on and told me they liked how my sense of humor matched theirs. Around season eight, I was seeing how burnt out they were getting and told them they needed to leave. I wanted David X. Cohen to be the new showrunner, but he had other plans (Futurama).

Mike Scully was a nice guy, but I left after season eleven. I had other jobs lined up and I felt like the show was past its prime. Great guys, though. A couple years, me and all the guys from seasons seven and eight linked up and we rode four-wheelers outside Taco Bell (Bill's idea).
