    Funnily enough I don't agree with a lot of that list - for me characters who "overstay" their welcome are those who needlessly hang around after their plot arc has ended. So, someone like Sean Rowan wouldn't fall into that category, as an example. I don't think Lindsay overstayed her welcome either, she filled her purpose in the plot for poor Crazy Claudia.

    It looks like a list of characters that didn't work for them, and in that case every minute they appear on screen is one minute too much.

    Grant Harrison on Another World had a good run as the town villain, but toward the end of his run the writers had run out of good motivation for him to continue being mean to people. Years earlier he had shot his own brother in the back, but after a few months in jail he pulled some strings (as an ex-Senator) and got pardoned. I think they should have just left him to rot in jail forever.

    I still think that Lindsay could have been more accepted with a possible recast in Season 02. An older actress, perhaps.
