    Everyone needs to grow up here. Time to end the Trojan War

    Ok, so last night I exchanged some talk with one of our newest posters Achiles. Quite frankly, I am appauled at the wolfpack of members that are ganging up on this newbie. And I am also disappointed that some of the admins are basically enabling this behavior.

    I am not going to call out any names from his infamous list, but it is kind of ironic that one of those posters had sincere concerns about the rep system being abused when it was formed. Another poster through a huge fit the first time a troll dinged him for 1 rep point. Yet, they seem to forget that a newbie getting slammed his first day is going to get upset and vent.

    I had insommnia last night, so I read every one of his posts (didn't put me to sleep, unfortunately). I can't find a single post of on the baseball side that deserved a neg. The nonbaseball thread got a little out of hand, but try to understand his frustration.


    Was he right to post "the list"? Probably not. Was he right to participate in flame wars via PM. Nope. But I talked to him and told him I would make this post in the morning. He agreed to stop posting his list and stop the flaming if people will just back off and leave him alone. So let's give him a fresh start.

    I'd also like to point out that Reds Live was created for the newbies. If you can't tolerate newbies, please stay in the Sacred Old Red Guard Forum, or put the poster you don't like on ignore (like we used to have to do before we had all this power to punish people).
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I agree with everything you said. Especially about Reds Live.

    I am glad to hear that Achilles has taken off the list (even though I wasn't too surprised to see the names on it: )

    I wanted to clarify to say that on Reds Live, you should expect to see things like 60 posts on the first day, etc. Please have patience. We were all newbies at one time.

    Thanks.

    I basically missed the entire weekend of posts in question. I haven't read much of the board lately, because I've been outside. I only negged what he decided to do with his signature, and I told him that.

    Now I'm getting my own personal, insulting nastygrams via PM.

    I'm not going to tolerate that from anyone.

    If he's going to keep that sig, it's going to continue to grow.

    Hmmm... he still has it up. I did send him a PM on it. [in a nice way] asking him to take it down. We'll see what happens...

    Whatever, quite frankly, I don't think he's a new person at all.

    He doesn't have internet access during the day. Give him until tonight (late) to change it.

    I'm not going to argue who's right or wrong. IMO, both sides were immature. I just want it to end.
