"I really hope you didn't think I was referring to you when I talked about the wank. I honestly have no problem with character bashing that's rooted in characterization; in fact, I do it all the time."

Oh, of course I didn't think you were referring to me. I was just using myself as an example. But I do think plenty of us bash characters based on what we see on the show, and not just because we're rooting for someone else.

"I'm talking about the fangirls who have said in the past, for example, ... that Lois looks old..."

*Bites tongue very hard*

"Who then proceed to troll and spam other people's journals, and make fun of the actresses the way they do the characters."

Oh, yeah, for sure, there is some of that out there. But those people seem to me to be either very young teenagers, or simply unbalanced. I'd like to think *most* of us can tell the difference between the characters and actors *looks askance at KrisTom shippers*.

"Obviously everything I say only applies to me, and not what I think is right for anyone else."

Sure, I understand that. For me, the Chlark ship is wrapped up in my personal vision of Smallville so tightly that I can't really watch the show without it. But I do realize not everyone sees the show that way. And that's okay. I'm glad you've found a way to keep watching the show in a positive way!

LOL! I'm remembering some of Omar's recaps right now...
