M'kay... well, after an honest question, i've received the above curt response, a longer satirical response (albeit well-written), an attempt at an honest explanation (weeding out 'riff raft', which the poster then admits doesn't actually work), and a joke about the misspelling in that explanation.
Give me a break, people.
Although I may not have been here for long, may not have 200 rep points, and may not have as much 'experience' as y'all, it seems strange that I shouldn't be able to participate in a simple game thread. That, after all, seems to be the most basic type of posting in a forum like this one. Most of the recent conversation on both threads has to do with whether players got hits, whether they made nice plays in the field, and how badly Narron screwed up the last move. The only difference I can see is that one thread has 450 people viewing and the other has, well, like 10... and its boring and lonely!
Let me say that I have no problem with the policy against me posting regular threads in the ORG until 200 rep points. However, I think there is a real difference between play-by-play game conversation (the game thread) and the specialized, well-developed banter that takes place on the other ORG threads between experienced fans who've been on the site for awhile and proven their "utility". It also seems that a site like this would want to attract new members rather than alienating them by sticking them on another side of a fence yelling at the top of their lungs for no one to hear.
Why not just have one game thread in Reds Live for everyone to access? Even if I haven't proven useful to this forum thus far, I at least deserve a logical explanation, unvarnished with sarcasm.
