    The GangstaCharlie bit was obviously meant to be a joke, and this has nothing to do with my life philosophy - as I stated I haven't done and don't plan to do the incognito voting myself. I also didn't say it must be okay if everybody does it - that wasn't the point of my post at all. I just don't agree with calling this practice and accusing those who're doing it of "cheating," specifically. "Cheating" means to break the rules, and as I was trying to explain, in the context of DWTS, I don't believe this practice constitutes that.

    Maybe I came out a bit harsh on the high moral grounds thing. I've had a complex with not-food-or-travel-related reality shows for a while now (a personal grudge for the lack of network investment in quality scripted shows but that's a story for another time) and don't take DWTS very seriously (at all), so I guess I reacted badly to the uproar over something I deemed so silly. Apologies to those of you who truly have strong feelings on the integrity of voting for a reality show as a matter of principle.

    And maybe I came down too hard. I don't really care that much who wins a reality show so the fact that "cheaters" may skew the results doesn't concern me that much. It's not that I have strong feelings about the integrity of voting on a reality show - I have strong feelings about integrity. A lot of people seem to feel that it's ok to cheat if it's for a worthy (in their eyes) cause or it's ok as long as they don't get caught, but I feel that if you cheat at one thing you are likely to cheat at others. I'm glad you aren't going to take part in this "stuffing the ballot box" thing, Meteorlight.

    Methinks once you start having philosophical conversations about integrity in a conversation about Dancing with the Stars, you've gone a bit too far Let the ballot-stuffers and the bare minimum-voters have their fun, it's harmless. You'd think one thread on this board could be drama-free!

    She's really wowed me this season! And what a lovely idea. One of the most fun parts of Meryl and Charlie taking part in the show has been to see non-skating fans appreciate their talents, too.

    Charlie's jazz routine is also a must-see!
