Re: Question about this board
The boards have been split for about two years now and, while maybe not a perfect solution, has been a positive change for the site. The Reds may not be as popular as the Yankees or Red Sox, but this forum is one of the most active on the 'Net. We get plenty of traffic (enough to crash the site on occassion) and implementing the reputation system has been a benefit.
Also, I can assure you our moderators are not "lazy". The job is unpaid and (as we've seen from your post) thankless.
If you have ideas on how to improve the site, please feel free to post them or PM them to myself or Boss-Hog. If all you'd like to do is rant, there are plenty of other websites you may feel more comfortable at doing so.
