I probably shouldn't have responded to this. In hindsight I guess it is a bait thread and I bit!
I am sorry, I didn't mean to respond to a bait thread. I honestly was just curious, however I feel very bad if I have broken any rules.
What is a bait thread? As I said, I am a fairly new fan, and I didn't know any of this history and I was merely interested. Sometimes I get quite intimidated when I post something and I find I have said or done something wrong. I think in future I will stick to read only, it might be safer, as I have made a couple of mistakes in responding on a topic.
I am signing off, read only in the future!
All the best, and I am sorry for getting involved in this post.
No no. You did nothing wrong! Hope you check back in to read this. Please join in the conversations here and elsewhere. You'll get used to the flow of posts - for better or for worse! We all have to start somewhere! LOL!
The OP was stating an opinion which could have been interpreted as trying to stir things up just for the sake of controversy and self satisfaction rather than advance discussion. Or perhaps to annoy a particular fan base. That's a "bait post". I'm not sure of the motivation in this particular one.
Back history can often be taken out of context and reading that you were a newer viewer I responded in the hopes of clarifying Paul Danny Nina and Christine's back history. There is a great web site giving Y & R characters story history you might enjoy if you are a newer viewer:
No wonder so many don't want to post here.. just because someone starts a thread that someone else does not like does not make it a bait thread.. we also have the right to not respond.. but calling every single thread that has a different opinion a BAIT thread is just a way to make even less people post..
who cares if someone saw something different.. we are allowed..
I am of the opinion that Paul did rape Christine. In my world No means NO and she said NO.. and he decided to go for it anyway.And he did shoot his son..
So to the OP ...feel free to post what you want.. Not all of us think this is a bait thread.. just a thread where you said what you felt.. carry on.
I hope Scotia reads this thread and decides to post again. As I look around, so many people that used to post here no longer do. It can truly be intimidating and for new posters especially. If that had happened to me when I first started posting here you can bet I would have certainly thought twice about posting again!
LOL But I'm pretty good at ignoring posts now!
I hope she keeps posting too.. we need more posters not less.
