    No problem from me on this.

    It just means we're gonna see more threads on Jessica Simpson and how Brittany Spears pregnancy is progressing.
    At least we can still discuss those vital topics!

    Anybody has any problems in a political thread over there---leave.

    You are entering that forum at your own risk.

    In all honesty, I'll try to do what I can, when I can, but I'm not promising comprehensive coverage for anyone.

    I kinda thought the non-baseball side of RedsZone was the same way.

    This decision really disappoints me. It was great to have one place to go to discuss Reds baseball as well as non-baseball issues. Now we've got two simultaneous (and often parallel) baseball discussions on RedsZone, and we have to go elsewhere to talk politics.

    I understand why the decision was made, though. The mods got fed up with babysitting.

    I think I'm more disappointed that we all couldn't act like mature adults and disagree without insults and personal attacks.

    I don't know what I'm going to do now, though.

    I think about 300 of my 400 rep points came from the "Non B-Ball" board. I might actually have to talk some baseball on RZ!

    Or merely distinguish between a personal attack and an attack on a position.

    It's not that bloody hard.

    Well, he'll know when he reads this thread!

    No, actually, he's well-aware.

    Yes, that would be nice.

    I could also use my signature to show how much I look down on people who disagree with my beliefs, but I choose to be better than that. This is, after all, a BASEBALL forum.

    And with this (not-so) veiled jab, can we close this thread?

    I thought we'd called a ceasefire?

    We did, and I have no problem with you, FCB. I just had to get my 2 cents in about reg's signature. I consider it a (not-so) veiled jab every time he posts. I'm not even asking that he change it (I'm not into censorship), I just wanted to get my feelings out there.
