I think what you failed to stipulate is that it happens on both sides....it's not only those that bring up the rape that start this thing.....others do it too and just as much.

There is a ton of baiting going on from both sides. One side may start it in one thread and the other side may start it in another. It's unfair to suggest that it's just one fandom group starting trouble and causing everyone headaches every time. :facepalm:

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Well better yet, Sami should tell Sony that his mom is a hypocrite who has forgotten about her past and where she came from. Sami also should inform Sony that Adrienne shot her own father who molested her and abused her alcoholic mother and not to mention her own brother was a rapist and her other brother attempted to commit murder in the past. So she has no room throwing stones at others in her glass house when she comes from a family even more dysfunctional than Will.
But since Sami cares about Sony, I guess she will tell him to forgive his mom which will make me puke.
I am hoping after this ordeal, Sami will embrace her dark side and go after those who hurt her.

Because somehow someone always the brings up the 'rape' thing to bait others. :frustration: :frustration:
Simply bringing up the rape isn't a bait...if that was the case no one would be able to talk about any history on this show...Sami's rape of Austin is brought up on occasion still, so is Sami's death row and Lucas' involvement, or Rafe trying to steal Sami's kids, or go back further and we were all discussing just a few months ago how John's behavior was totally OOC and not true to history and examples were made as to why people thought that way. I understand that this board doesn't want to get into the back and forth discussion about the rape, because it leads absolutely no where, but let's face it...if you think it wasn't rape, no one is going to change and the same goes for those of us who thought it was rape. But regardless of our personal opinions on the matter, the show treated it as rape and called it rape, everyone from the producers to the writers to the actors and characters were saying the word for over a year and a half after it happened. It was what it was.....and it was very, very poorly handled by the show but simply bringing it up isn't a bait...because the show called it that, and as late as 2010 it was again brought up by the show in dialogue...
I completely agree that beating up the dead horse is not going to change anyone mind. I would not presume to tell anyone what to discuss, it is not my place. Hey if someone enjoys bringing up a terrible story from almost seven years ago, it is their prerogative. but we all know every time is being brought, it always start the same discussion over and over again and it is so tiresome. Since it usually has nothing with the current storyline or spoilers, it feels that it is done to piss off people and continue the vicious circle.
I could be wrong, but I personally see it as bait and just choose to ignore it instead of feeding into the beast. After all we have been doing this dance for years and I have grown immune to it now.
I meant no offense, just my opinion on the matter.
