Now whether people participate in a game thread that has been started is another question and the answer can only be supplied by those that choose not to participate in the game thread. You may feel awfully dumb talking to yourself but rest assured there are others who feel the same way. Perhaps if you would post in those game threads, others would follow suit.
    Good point. I'll try that next time. Perhaps I'm mostly frustrated because last night I posted quite a few times in a row... to myself.

    Thanks to everyone for the eventual answers, everyone. And sorry to raise this (apparently quite old) question again.

I've enjoyed my time here, and all I'm trying to do is make this a better functioning community for all involved. I was under the impression that questioning the norms of any institution from time to time is something that promotes healthy growth for all those involved. And, as a member of any community, that's what I've always tried to do. Rather that than suffer in silence... even if it means that some members will be "reluctant" to give me rep points.

    Nah... I used to sport a grunge look around 10 years ago, which I thought was kind of like a latter-day hippie look (hiking boots, two hoop earrings, a Stone Temple Pilots beard, and lots of flannel) but now I'm basically just your everyday cargo shorts-polo shirt kind of preppy grad student. That's perhaps why I have to express the radical nature of my personality via a baseball fan website. Oh well, at least the team I support is the "Reds".

    I hope being a hippy and supporting a communist regime arent mutually inclusive or that really solidifies my thoughts about a couple politicians.... Ill leave it at that.

    Certainly not. I like to think of them as two big, circles of influence. They overlap in parts, but there are large parts of both that do not.

    I think it's time we ask all members of RedsZone one simple question: "Are you, or have you ever been, a member of the Rich Aurilia fan club?"

    I think currently, the question should be asked is this:

    "Are you, or have you ever been a member of the Jerry Narron fan club?"

    A game thread with no commentary, only play-by-play. Sounds *yawn* exciting to follow.

    Please give me a break. A game-thread is made to discuss the game, and the team. Just because it's not a continual PBP doesn't mean it's being hijacked. Jeez just use mlb.com or espn.com for a pbp.

    It was done to make rem angry. Not that it was really necessary.
