Quote trinilisa: Ita. I will also like to add that at one point, it got a little hairy because some were accused of actress bashing for saying that while they found SC pretty, they didn't think she was the end all be all most beautiful woman on the show. People were accused of being jealous of her etc. I'm sightless so I really have no opinion one way or the other, just for the record. So I think it can get a little sticky when it comes to actor/actress bashing. I had also reported a poster who said that BM/EH/GR were over-rated (when the Delia accident happened) and that SC/JM played the loss of a daughter way better, and I was told that the person was expressing an opinion and that it was not actor/actress bashing. So it's a little dicey sometimes....jmo
That post you just talked about all of us mods remember and still agree is not bashing. We do not think it gets sticky at all. The truth is some posters are so sensitive about the characters or actors they like that they can't stand to see anything remotely which does not praise them. That is why they need us to mediate. We do not have any bias nor are we here to care one way or another who is prettiest.
Bashing -- Bashing is obvious. It is an attack. It is rude. There are also mild opinions of dislike and constructive criticism. Here they are below.
Bashing --- Sharon is ugly. (bashing)
Not bashing --- I don't find Sharon pretty. (not bashing)
Constructive criticism -- Sharon would look better if she had another hair style. (not bashing)
Bashing -- Billy can't act his way out of a paper bag. He sucks. (bashing)
Not bashing -- Billy doesn't fit this role.
Constructive criticism -- Billy does not fit this role or Billy would be better if he did this particular thing. (Sorry I don't watch so don't know what this actor does.)
Just because somebody doesn't think an actress is pretty does not mean they are jealous.
