Re: Let's all take a deep breath (everyone please read)
A "newbie" gives his 2 cents:
As a "newbie," I felt obligated to read and respond to this topic. Especially since I'm probobly one of the newbies some of the vets are complaining about. I apologize for any newbie mistakes I may have made or will make, but I do want to sound off from my perspective on a few of the issues raised in this topic.
The Reds Live portion of this site is an open forum. You get what you get. Some good, some not so good. If you don't want to read or respond to any of it, don't. Fairly simple I think.
I've enjoyed all of the discussions that I have had with "veteran" members of this board, even ones where my opinion has been discounted. I expected that. It happens everywhere, not just the world of the internet. People disagree. No harm, no foul.
Repeated topics are also inevitable. For example: until Adam Dunn hits .600 (.999 with RISP) with no strikeouts, people are going to complain. I realize it causes excess "noise," but as I stated before, you can choose what you read and respond to.
No forum of this nature will be perfect. I think this one is pretty darn good and I'm glad I found it.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
