    Goodbye REDSZONE

    I have been a member of this forum since 2004. I don't post very much but usually just read others post. I would have never posted enough to gain popularity points to get into Red Gaurd, but that was ok with me. But for you to not allow us to have a game thread in our little forum where we are allowed to post has just sent me over the top. I have been a Reds Fan since before many of you were born. I am 49 years old, yet not allowed to post my thoughts on a game in a game thread ? I agree that forums get trolls and that is why you did what you did a couple of years ago with the rep points, but that turned into a populatity contest, kinda like American Idol. I post from time to time, many of them positive remarks and some negative ones. That is called showing passion for your team IMO. I have never attacked anyone here and never would. I just do not see the reasoning behind not allowing a game thread where we can post as well. There are many other Reds forums out there, they may or may not be as nice a place as this one. I have never tried anywhere else. I guess I will get to find out. I Love the Reds, I Love reading about what is going on with MY TEAM, and I Love being able to post my thoughts when I want to. I don't like or agree with this so I guess I will leave. I am not asking for you to change your policy, or even give a Rats ____ about me leaving. I just wanted to voice my opinion one final time on a forum that I have loved coming to for over 3 years. This is SAD SAD SAD.......

    I agree, sometimes this place makes me feel like a child, mentally challeneged or both. I'm sick of the clique nature of the board, the whole popularity contest. This board is now on its death-bed.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Unfortunetly I'm pondering my retirement from Redszone also. For the reasons you have already stated Redram. It'll be tough to find another Reds Message Board as good as this one though.

    If this board is so good, why would you want to leave it? You can still post, you can still read, the only thing thats changing is the 'mess' of things that had developed.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    So those that aren't on ORG are the reason for the "mess"?

    I don't think it was a mess at all. If you want to see a mess go visit cincinnati.com. The was hands down the best Reds forum available. Now it is just a divided community where there are a large group of members who have been told "you're no longer good enough."

    This isn't the first time that RZ has been divided... you should've seen the broohaha when it ORG and Reds Live! split two years ago...

    And it's comment's like this that make us "unworthy" posters, feel like it's a popularity contest and that we're direct blame for everything. Reds44, I feel most upset for him. I think I've known him from another forum board and if its the same kid, I have FULL respect for him.

    Moving on, I am only commenting on this thread once with my statements. I got the 200 rep points, I posted a joke about getting in to ORG. I stayed in Reds Live!. Why? More conversations, people who you could actually have a conversation with that didnt just ignore you and move on. There were alot of us that did make good posts. We were overlooked or just plain ignored. It happens. It's a internet message board that wants to think it's a Illumanti society where only the "chosen few" can participate in "enlightened conversations" about baseball.

    The rest of us..we are what you just called a "mess". So...I have to say this. If we're going to split into two. I'd rather stay where my senses aren't assualted. Where I can be unkempt, unruly and my defenses aren't devoured by spoil bought arrogance. If I have a audience of the most prestigious or not, I'd rather stay with the low and the decadant.

    They can't have a game thread... and that's a big deal on this board.

    I once thought that only the military would ignore a problem and say that is just how it is going to be after countless complaints from the people that make the enitre organization but, redszone.com moderators have proven me wrong.

    We do try evah so hardah massah to understand what all you'se people say up there in ORG and in yourah gamethreads but sir we only have brains but soo bee-ig

    oh, and i fixed your quote...

    No where in my original statement did I say anyone was incapable or not allowed to post their opinion. I understand being upset at some of the changes, I even understand taking offense to my terming some things a 'mess', but I've never insulted anyone's intelligence nor ability to convey said intelligence.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    It might have something to do with the fact that grown men are being told what they can and can not do. You being a man, you most likely understand. Children don't like to be treated like children; Men don't deserve to be treated like them either.
