    I asked you a while back why you had please delete my account. But I have liked several of your posts and discussed the game with you in game threads before. Maybe others besides me asked same question? I don't know. I was just curious why you had that. Nothing else.

    I'm glad you are still posting.

    Be glad you didn't have to deal with the Redszone 10. Now they were a handful.

    Also, and I'm not entirely certain, but I may have been a member. or not. its confusing?

    Honestly, you're the only person who asked me that.

    Was it you who said the other night that you were done posting in game threads because you felt it you said what you wanted to say regarding fellow members here that you would be banned? If that wasn't you, my sincere apologies. I like you Keefe. We're all Reds fans. Some more knowledgeable (a lot) than others. I fall under the camp of fans who like the old statistics and the human / managerial side of the game.

    I too am more a fan of less statistics in baseball. While I acknowledge it’s probably part of how baseball works today it over complicates things imo. More often than not I don’t have much to add on the baseball discussions here.

    I imagine the Reds appeal to many different people with many different personalities. But yeah I get the cliche thing. Especially when you can’t see what goes on on the other side of the internet so to speak

    How about now? I'm asking with all snark set aside. We don't see eye to eye on, well, anything I guess, but discussion about the reds is discussion about the reds. I hope you are acclimating.

    I know exactly what your saying because as a new guy who is posting on here, the treatment I often get is just as you describe and it's almost always from the long time members. I think some of them do it to purposely push our buttons, so we will leave. Often calling us names or belittling our opinions because they don't line up with theirs. Their have been instances where I dished out what they were giving and maybe that was the wrong approach, but I don't allow that type behavior to my face and I'm not going to allow it on a public forum either. I'm certainly not wanting any sympathy or validation from anyone, I am just pointing out what you said is absolutely the truth. I'm sure this will make several of them dislike me even more, but frankly I don't care, because like my current signature says " sugar coating is not in my nature". I know there are some very good people on here, but if this is how it is, I probably won't last long on here and I'm sure some of the long time members will be happy about that. I came here because I love my Cincinnati Reds, not to have rude nasty debates. Go Reds!

    We need more folks like you who don't care about racking up likes or internet friends. As you've noticed, RZ does not treat people like you well and such behavior is tolerated around here. That's unfortunate but that's the way it's been for years and it's cost us a lot of good people. Don't let yourself join that list. It's good having a non clique type person like you around

    I think you would enjoy this series. Bob Hurley is a coach/guy that does not sugar coat anything. He is awesome

    Yep, moderators are non existent unless they donít like you. It really is funny at this point. You have one poster impaticular who never talks about the subject. He either corrects your grammar, insults you, or is a condescending jerk. Or pulls out his pathetic redszone file.Not once has anyone said anything to him. So, is the nature of redszone, but donít let a bunch of pathetic people run you off unless you arenít enjoying it.

    Re: Need help deactivating account.

    When we get to the point that we're bashing the moderating staff, who graciously offer to help run the site in their free time, then this thread has run its course. Suffice to say, much of what was said above is incorrect, as we try to handle moderating tasks privately, so unless you're the offending party, you're not privy to know what we do or don't do.

    In any event, to answer the question that originally prompted this thread, we can't deactivate anyone's account; you should simply stop visiting the site if that's your intent. We can delete your account, but it can't be reactivated at that point. If that's what you want to do, just send me a PM.
