I had a quick question! It's about Name Calling. This is not aimed towards any fan-group or fandom but just in general.
First, I want to ask you guys, are you alright with the name calling. I am aware that Mukund's character is being called 'Makhi' 'Machar' only purely because he's coming in between RK and MB and many of you guys are not happy with it.
So, that's the whole point. How far do you think that name calling should go? Do you guys want that to continue with someone being called 'Makhi, Machar' but like, also note, what if, someone called Madhubala Makhi? or RK Machar? Would you guys stand it?
And I am aware of MB being called Glycerine in the show, so that should be taken into account too.
If you feel that Name Calling should be allowed, please do share and if you think it shouldn't be allowed, then please share as well. We just want to know how to further the rules on Name Calling and it's up to you guys to decide how. We are going to go with the majority. If some of you feel that Name Calling should be allowed to the extent that everyone is having fun and not getting mad/hurt over it, then please state that too!
Think of this situation from both ways. Like I know that you guys like to call MB and RK names which you find suitable to them, which is fine but even though we don't have a vast fan following of Mukund there ARE fans there so we need to respect them.

i really dont know an answer to this but what i do know is ... all of us are different people. as in real life some are very diplomatic and have a great command over their emotions like jews who hardly show any emotions in public. some of us tend to be emotional and get charged up. our ways of expressing our emotions can varyyy a lot. in oen forum i have been criticised becuase i wrote i hate the so and so charcater , that character happenned to be the female lead of the show. ab utne me hi objection ho gaya. but in other forums people go tot the extent of calling the grey shaded female lead a wh**e/keep/f**k buddy and no body took any objection!
i feel after beign around for sometime in internet forums ... onyl opinions of people who follow the rut are respected. there is no scope of presenting a different view and challenging a positive lead popular in a forum is next to harakiri.
in general instead of making rules strickter. people should be encouraged to be more tolerant towards people who dont like their favorites for whatever reason.
they should be emphasised about the fact ... that this is merely internet. opinions expressed here are not court judgments or death warrants for which they have to fight with all their might.
but its a long call. even so called matured and aged people love to dho their haath in behati ganga and bash a person who dares to nto toe the line of the forum! things seem pretty hopeless to me as regards to teh freedom of expression teh way things stand right now with fans and posters.
i would suggest making a list of the words which are objectionable would be a good idea although it may curb a lot of freedom of expression much to the chagrin of aggressive fans .especially when they are in the mood of doing some serious bashing of someone whose views they simply dotn like for whatever reasons, but who happen to be in the majority of the forum and can get away with it and dont even stop to consider wha they r ding is infact again bashing!. and that list should be stuck by one and all and not just the minorities.
another suggestion i hav is fans of show.character/actor should be encouraged to embrace the fact : they simpyl cannot force anyone to like their idol. so bashing someone is hardly likely to coerce that person to stop hating their favorite .
and lastly it is not possible for some of us to just keep singing praises all the time of a popular character , soem fo us are objective enough to find faults. hence there should eb a room for expressing criticism of the show too. after all we r criticsing a show or character and not the posters.
that in my view should eb allowed if we are to become a real discussion platform and not just a blind fanfare.
