There is such a thing as constructive criticism and saying that somebody's performance was no deeper than a kiddie pool is not bashing the actress. It's merely pointing out what somebody sees as a flaw in their acting. There is always going to be performances that somebody doesn't like. Everyone is welcome into the Why Lindsay Must Go Thread to defend her just as everyone is welcome to come into this thread to defend Rikki. If you don't like reading negative things about Anna/Lindsay and cannot go into that thread or just don't want to post in there, that's fine but the negativity in there will continue and none of it is bashing the actress. Also, nobody really knows if Carmine even reads threads like that or maybe he doesn't care or maybe he agrees. Who knows if he doesn't say. He does look over the threads about him and his character and things like the episode threads. Also, nobody said you couldn't call Rikki whatever you wanted to and nobody said you couldn't talk about her. Honestly though, this is the Danny/Lindsay thread. If I were a DL shipper, this is the last place I'd want to talk about Rikki in but I know it has to be done and that's fine. Everything in here is just opinion and what one person sees as Danny cheating and lying, another person sees as not cheating and just making excuses not to go to lunch. What one person sees as Rikki being the devil, another person sees as someone just working through her grief. This thread is not going to turn into an argument back and forth about what you do or do not call Rikki or what is being said about Anna/Lindsay in another thread. It is going to stay on topic and let the discussion continue. So, everybody needs to get back to a discussion about your ship which yes, right now will include discussion about Rikki. ETA: Also, everybody please remember the rules: Three lines or more of on topic posting.
