You are exactly right. It hurts people more when you ignore them because they are just begging for what they lack in their personal life (i.e. attention, respect, etc). So my conclusion is to just ignore them and act as if you don't see any of their posts (i.e tightpants84.....oh I mean tigress84 or what ever his/her name is).

This person sounds like a bit of a simpleton if he/she was willing to let the tone of a few posters (who like to provoke discussion on sensitive topics as far as I can tell. I haven't seen anything overtly racist on this board, but race is discussed often.) dissuade them from making a significant move. Doesn't sound like the thought process of someone who would provide much to the city of Atlanta, so it might be a good thing they didn't come.

Why are you worried about giving my "what I want"? I want nothing from you.

Its called a debate, or discussion. Different views are expressed. Facts and points are exchanged. Civilized societies have been doing it for thousands of years.

A sincere admission that the ills of black society are NOT the fault of whitey would be a start, however.
Black people are responsible for their own ills and whites have done nothing to them. There, now will you go away?

Yes, I agree. It has become unbearable.

I think I'll take my posting to skyscraperpage.com and try to build some traffic over there. Less traffic, but much better signal to noise ratio.

Take care, city-data. It has been fun.

Honestly, I for one would never move to Atlanta because of some of the stuff I see on this board. It can't be a coincidence that you don't find this same sort of strife on other metro forums. Just my two cents.

Where there's smoke there's fire.

So you would like to limit our god given free speech because you dont agree with what someone else says?? Very interesting indeed. Maybe its you that should be banned as you suggest.

You guys are correct-I hardly post, just lurk and most of these topics go downhill fast-with the same characters instigating. When I joined City-Data, I was so suprised at some of the blatant racist posts I saw-it infuriated me at first but then I realized its the same people looking for attention. I hope people looking to move here dont judge Atlanta by this forum-anyway OP just ignore them-they are looking for a rise.
