There is pratyusha and rumours of her quitting notwithstanding, till date, she has done nothing to impress anyone and yet she is never in danger zone.
So why is it that when people need to pick an example, they will invariably go for Gurmeet Chaudhury?
If this thread escalates into fight zone and DT edit/ remove posts or close thread, we will be the favorite punchbag of all members, irrepective of their color. Yet it is the members who are itching to fight . Any proper discussion theme is moulded into a topic in such a way that it invariably provokes one group or other and the topic turns into mutual mud slinging zone.
I am assuming you have written this as a regular member and not as a DT member.. that's why I am daring to reply
Yes.. there are many other people who are surviving on sheer votes basis. Some have talent as well as votes. Speaking for myself.. I have no problem with that as well as trained contestants or wild card or any other thing which other people might find unfair. But I can see why GC's name is taken by the TM here. GC got low score for his initial couple of performances and only his votes were announced as the highest at that time. Even on this forum we can see that GC has huge number of fans. So when we say the words "voting advantage".. first name comes to my mind is "GC". What's so wrong with that?
Every week there are 3-4 performances which fetch 30 points from judges and some fans make appreciating posts for their favorite contestant. Should we question them why they are not talking about other contestants who also got 30 points?? NO.. we can't do that because it comes down to one's opinion and liking.. same way some people can have an opinion about GC and his voting power. What is so wrong with that as long as it is done with out actually bashing the contestant or fan base and within the COC of IF? Or is it that no one other than a fan is allowed to make a post about GC?
Then better re-name this section as "JDJ-Fan Club for GC / Discussion Forum for rest of the contestants".. because I see critic thread for Isha running upto 26 pages with some really good discussion going on there..
Finally @bold part.. why should it escalate into war zone? Is there any contestant or fan bashing going on? Has anyone blamed fans for voting for GC? Has anyone blamed GC for having too many fans? Just see the post I have quoted below.. posts like this start all the blame game and name calling and personal attacks from both sides.. specially the underlined part. So the solution is to edit such posts and/or issue a warning if that is the DT policy. Stopping people from mentioning a certain name is not the solution IMO.
