    The main reason why / that

    Hello.
    Which one is correct? Does it depend on context? Some people argue that "The main reason why" is not correct at all.
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    I do not like "the main reason why".

    Re: The main reason why / that

    The word "reason" already contains the concept of "why".
