    Who was there on cincy.com back in late 1990s?

    I believe it was Dom Hefner who suggested a thread about the old cincy.com board that took off in the late 1990s. I was there with the same user name. Anyone else around from those days?

    I was there for quite a while. I remember Don Heffner and his whimsical prose.

    I showed up at the very end(or at least the end before Redszone began.) Gawd it was awful.

    Same here.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I posted occasionally under the name "marcshoe". After most had abandoned the board, I went back and saw that it had become even more ridiculous than before and posted that maybe the board should be shut down, then opened back up after a rest, which had worked for another board I was on. Someone answered that the baby shouldn't be thrown out with the bathwater, and I responded that there hadn't been a baby in that dirty water for a long, long time.

    That was my last post there.

    I started there in early 1999 under a different name and left when I joined here. The Bengals forum was actually not that bad for a while, but the Reds forum had deteriorated quite a bit.

    I believe it was on that Bengals forum where the term Fed Ups was coined for disgruntled Bengals fans. There was someone who posted as Craig S (I think) who made great posts, but left for reasons I don't remember.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Yeah, me too. After many years of having no Reds fans to talk to it was very sweet.

    I was there. I even responded to a number of "Whiffey is not your savior" posts.

    I thought that was because all of them died of old age?

    It wasn't too bad if you didn't feed the trolls or laughed at the Griffey bashers. I actually preferred it to RZ in the early days because I was established there-didn't need to prove myself. IIRC, wasn't it shutdown after 9/11 because the Enquirer needed the extra bandwith for the coverage?

    I was there as Running Man. Got sick of it and quit posting/looking, thus didn't find out about Redszone until a little later than most of the folks who went over when it started.
