    I haven't been on redszone since last night. So that was the first time I saw the complaint.

    In short, the first post was a private manner (which has never been allowed around here) and the thread was hijacked from there.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    If anything, that thread reminds me of the "Last Person to Post" that I thought were being closed down.

    I agree with those who posted... what's the harm?

    The thing that bothers me more is that threads are often closed with no explanation. Sometimes you can guess, but not always. If the mod closing the thread would give a brief reason, I think it would be appreciated by all.

    You are right, it's served it's useful purpose. Time to close it.

    If anything that thread was like the "official RedsZone running gag depository." I'm somewhat sorry to see it go. I think there's a place for good-natured silliness so long as it doesn't get completely out of hand. It's a long season, after all.

    Re: Once again, a thread is closed with no explanation...

    AND THEN...my "Holy Grail of Reds memorabilia" thread gets shut down. Mod who closed it says I was spamming you all with it. Here's what I PMed the mod who closed it (and edited my posts):

    form of spam, huh? I'm sorry, but I don't get it. It's a very unique piece of Reds memorabilia that Redszoners, of all people, might have a genuine interest in.

    It's one thing to close the thread...at least you gave an explanation...I appreciate that, but to edit the post, too? I got feedback and pm's from several 'zoners who appreciated being able to look at (and dream about) owning a piece like that.

    So you're saying that if we find something very intresting related to our Reds on eBay, we can't link to it on Redzone to share the discovery, huh?

    I don't get it.

    I just think our mods get on power trips sometimes and it's frustrating to many of us.

    Thanks for taking time to read this and let me voice my opinion.

If a contributive member wants to share a link of his that pertains to the Cincinnati Reds I think he should, even if it is an eBay auction. Some people buy Reds stuff on eBay and would appreciate that kind of link.

    I think that is a valid point. I know myself, and a few others, have posted threads in the past linking to ebay auctions, of Reds memorabilia that wasn't mine, and they weren't locked.

    Oh well. Thanks to many of you who help me make my points better than I can make them myself.

    Just a theory: some of the mods could be people who have little or no authority elsewhere so they like to flex their muscles online. The thing that burns me the most is the condescending attitude they sometimes display. Oh well. Guess that's just life.

    I still love Redszone. And I appreciate the mods...just trying to voice my opinion.

    Re: Once again, a thread is closed with no explanation...

    I've linked to a few items on eBay too, because I thought there might be some interest on here, not necessarily because someone might be interested in bidding, but because of pkain old interest in the item. Never spam. Guess I'll keep it to myself from now on.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I've seen EBay items here now and then. It doesn't seem that they're overdone. I never realized there was a rule against it.

    I think it's nice that Max offered up such a precious artifact to the folks here.

    My 2 cents ....... which is worth about 2 cents.

    Re: Once again, a thread is closed with no explanation...

    Ya know, the more I think about it...it would have been rude of me not to let Redszoner know about it.

    C'est la vie.

    I get the "spamming thing." Nobody appreciates that. But spam is not what I was doing. I'm not some Yay-hoo coming in to RZ trying to unload memorabilia. Heck, I'm not even a dealer. Oh well.

    Thanks, everyone, for backing me. I appreciate all your supportive PMs.

    Aww man. That thread was funny. Just remember, you can close the thread but the 10 will live forever.
