That would be me. Just look at them, you don't think there are simularties? Though I don't know if Lindsay has Melody pure child like innoence and impossibility to hate. In both the comics and the cartoon, even Alexandra had a soft spot for Melody. Most of her hostility and schemes were aimed at Josie and sometimes Valerie. Rarely Melody. One word to describe Melody no matter what she does, you can't stay mad at her. In the comics one of the recurring gags is Josie and Valerie's jealous towards the attention Melody gets from boys. But they never take it out on her, I remember in one comic, they were at the beach and as usual Melody got all the boy's attention and these boys upset that Melody spurned their affection start picking on her, Josie and Valerie save her. Though some wonder if Melody is smarter than she acts, there was the car wash episode. The gang was washing a car, they try to assign Melody various tasks and she always messed up. In the last frame, you see them all working except Melody who is sitting on a hammeck with a drink while everyone else works.
