Hmm, while I don't disagree with most criticism of the ISU/scoring/etc., if a post is not really about Yuzuru, it should go into a different thread (the salt thread, threads for other skaters, or competition threads). If it's a criticism that has already been posted before (or twice, or three times), maybe use the salt thread instead. Many posters here expressed that they agree w/ most of the criticism but want to talk about other things instead.
As far as constructive criticism, I agree that we shouldn't bring in skaters' appearances. I also think we shouldn't assign moral judgment to skaters for being overscored. I don't like it any more than anyone else when skaters are given scores for things they didn't do, but they are not judging themselves. Sure, skaters can work hard and improve to "deserve" their scores, but not everyone can improve even if they try to. Maybe they are trying to (and failing). It would be too much for me to expect them to voluntarily withdraw from the competition because they are overscored.
Maybe I'm more calm about this now because I don't really think scores mean anything anymore. Overscored or underscored, it's all made up numbers to me. I'm kind of from the camp where I don't think scoring is even fixable until we dismantle the ISU from within and start anew, which isn't going to happen. Maybe I've reached the last stage of grief -- acceptance.
P.S. We will inevitably have different opinions on other skaters. And THAT'S OKAY. No one should be made to feel bad for liking another skater. I hope this forum can be accepting of people who are fans of other skaters. Please use the ignore button instead if you don't agree with a poster's opinions... The fandom has gotten pretty splintered lately (and not for no reason) but I hope we can still coexist as Yuzu fans.
