I just want to comment one thing. First off even if Mons Singh did happen to vist the I f, she can't take offensive to those topics, because she is a professional actress....I'm assuming. It comes with the territory. I'm sure she is aware of the fact that some people are going to like her and some people are not. She has to deal with it. This includes looks and acting. It's up to eveyone's judgement and everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
I personaly think it's not appropriate to do such a thing, so I did my part and chose not to visit that thread, but that's just me.
But at the same time, eveyone has to express they're own views and this is the place for it.
Well said! That is part of the business - not everyone will like you.
There are many threads here too that I just don't have an interest in and decide to not post in.

No hon, I don't. I just wrote it because I genuinely didn't want anyone to get upset over the matter.
Believe me Bee, I would have shown the post of a person who DID label Purab that, but the person is away due to important factors and I didn't think putting her/his name on would make her/him happy esp during her/his absence would be too good. And, if I go even further, it could have caused some amount of disagreements and perhaps even more. And that post was four or five days ago.
But thanks Bee for being part of those who stopped calling characters names based on the actors attributes.
Second, just as I feel it's not OK to start a thread whose sole purpose was running down Jassi's looks, I don't think calling Purab 'Uncle' was OK either, simply because it caused a great deal of offense. These things may sound funny to some people and nauseating to others. Like the famous quote goes: an eye for an eye would just end up making everyone blind. I'm sure we can have plenty of interesting discussions without making snide remarks and poking fun at the actors' looks. They are all just playing a part, and all of them are giving it the best they can. That is why we tune in to watch the show every night. To decry them based on their physical attributes and that too in such a frivolous manner is insulting, at least to me. You agree that it was not an intelligent discussion, or even particularly funny. I still haven't understood the idea behind this admittedly 'eye-catching' subject: "Jassi the Man." Don't you think that's just a wee bit offensive? How wold you like this topic: "Purab the Woman"?
I agree with mystica on that part too. But, no one was judging the whole mona singh as an actress on-screen based only on her looks. We all have seen that she has a lot of capacity in her. Stating the view that jassi looks like a man is not going to make mona singh any less of an actor than she is right now. Just like stating purab as uncle won't make samir soni any less of the actor he is at the moment.
About the 'bashing' part. I realize I had typed a more heavy word for describing my feelings. I never meant it as a fighting or arguing place. I just wanted to say come here, enjoy the posts, state your opinion, have fun making friends and taking part. Sorry if anyone took it to heart.

Yes, i agree, Purab Uncle has been comign around alot. And grandad. But I dont think either of you that has been married, would want your husband to be called grandad if he was samir. I personally think, whomever calls him uncle, needs to consult a counselor that can teach them of realizing things earlier and immatureness discovery! Just kidding! No, but I think, Purab uncle and Purab grandad's namecalling has become less popular now because of piscean, and alot of other pplz, but I think whoever is continueing to ignore the message, should think twice before namecalling anyone or any character on the forum.

Purab is called Uncle because of Samir's looks and facial features. This is something he has no control over. It is offensive for Purab fans to hear him being called an old man when, in reality, he and Apurva are around the same age. Even in the serial he's not portrayed as having a very large age difference from Armaan.
I think all of us can discuss the serial and have a good time debating about the characters and thier actions without resorting to name-calling and making fun of their looks. That way every fan will be able to express him or herself without the fear of being attacked or ridiculed.
What do you say, friends?
