Re: Why two different game threads?
There's two game threads because it was getting too positive. Statistically speaking, newer posters have been shown to be 34.27% more postive than those who have been here for 300 or more posts. For those who have been here for 200 or more posts the number of positive posts spikes to 41.37%. That's a positive post factor of 7.1/100 posts and we just can't have that sort of stuff going on in a game thread.
Also, newer posters are far less likely to carp about scrappy vets, hate Gerogre Grande, find Marty B to be the anti-christ or have sick man love for EE. Again, intensive statisicial research has shown the "outsiders objective reality index" (OORI) to be much higher for new people (42.57% higher in fact) for those who have not been here for 3 or more years. It is far more prefered to have a homegenious "end of time" outlook than to have an OORI increasing in the face of the ETS index decreasing. ETS means "everything sucks" index, by the way.
Having two game threads is a good way to weed out the nieve, inexperienced and "hand in the sand" baseball fans who just want to enjoy talking about Reds baseball and ocsionally enjoy the game itself and it maintains that certian, "I am miserable, but I guess I'll post anyway" sort of outlook that is important to some.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
