I don't mind people having a different opinion, even when the opinion is very strong and the complete opposite of my own. But we are such a small community and we know each other so well by now. I know if I say X in a specific way, that it will piss off or hurt person Y. So I try my best not to do that.
We haven't been perfect in that regard (myself included), but I think we should try harder. It's not meant to be censoring ( Queen Carol ). Everyone can still say whatever he or she likes. But there are things that don't need to be repeated every week and we should always try to be respectful of each other's feelings and favourite characters in regards to how we voice the criticism. There's a difference between saying "Sansa's behaviour irritated me because reason XY" and revelling in "Lady Bolton"-hate. I remember when I went a bit too far with my Stannis-criticism one time and I regretted it immediately because I noticed I was annoying people or even hurting their feelings. I don't wanna do that.
Gurl, there was like one post calling her Lady Bolton lol. Maybe it made you feel stronger about it because more people chimed in with why Sansa was irritating this week, but it's not as if everyone refers to her as Lady Bolton. No one argued when so many referred to her as QitN all season long even if they hated the idea.
Now Carol. They were hyping Sansa as QotN as a joke.
