They didn't.

That's the problem with all-or-nothing POVs. I never said that I wasn't
interested in writing MJ. What I said, repeatedly, was that I wanted to clear
away the board for a while so I could concentrate and finding who Peter
Parker/Spider-Man was on his own terms. He'd been so thoroughly surrounded and
basically supplanted by guest cast that he had become a supporting character in
his own book. My theory was always to get everybody else out the door for a
while, clarify his character, and then slowly begin to reintroduce characters
like MJ and JJJ (who appears in the script for #40).
