Cool it, one more thing

Stopping attacking other posters.

It's gotten out of hand again. I've rejected more posts tonight than I ever have. And please, for the love of God, don't send me posts about how someone else started it.

I'm not the only one who moderates posts, so some of the attacks may get through. Here's a little tip: If you mention another poster by name you're porbably attacking him or her.

One more thing: No more posts wishing for players to be injured.

John, you offer a great blog. Thanks for all your efforts.

There is an unnamed person here though that challenges you, insults you, feels like he has a right to be in YOUR BLOG, and really ruins the experience.

Thanks for what you put up with

John...I will say this...

I really enjoy your blog. I apologize if I have gotten out of hand or if I seriously offend anyone. They are not my intentions.

I am here to talk about the Reds and have fun. BUT, there is a lot of negativity here. Partially because of the Reds losing, but partially because some people are naturally negative.

Everyone here is entitled to their opinion, and therefore EVERYONE should be given the benefit of the doubt. When some people here consistently disregard your opinion and repeat themselves, it doesn't leave a very good impression. It chases people away.

John, you've seen it...people have actually posted saying they are done viewing your blog. Some of this negativity has to be eliminated.

I agree with the ultimatum method. If a posters asks you a question, John, answer it and DO NOT let them retaliate on your answer. I've seen too many accusations and attacks against you lately as well. When they are doing it to you, then YOU KNOW its bad.

You are the expert here, John. You should definitely keep it that way. ;)

Every year as the Reds sink below .500 we hear "it's early don't panic" and then soon we're 10+ games under .500 and it's June.

Same thing every year.

Bottoms up, Dusty!

Redsfuture,GrizzlyFox,Mr Redlegs, DonkeyDizzle and so on and so on, These were people who posted often and had interesting things to say, But they seem to be driven away by all the name calling and childish posting. Which has taken away from the quality of the blog.

I believe it's says on the Link "John Fay's Reds Insider" and no one else. If you feel you can do a better job than john,start your own blog,and watch how many people don't follow you.
