At a certain point, it's no longer productive to engage in a dialogue.

I think we've reached that point.

If I may point out, plenty of people in the city use their cars on a regular basis and most of them commute to work in the suburbs.

A lot of them live in single family neighborhoods which are considered very desirable. They also pay big property taxes and make sure you Millennials have amenities like Piedmont park, the Arts center, MARTA, snazzy streetscapes to walk on, highrise apartments to live in, great universities to attend and Beltlines to ride your bikes on. A lot of folks in the suburbs contribute to these things as well.

Ugh...some of the anti-city stuff said in this thread legitimately got on my nerves and some of it was just ridiculous. Yes, even though SF is like 70% renters, it's far more wealthy than anything Atlanta can hope to achieve and that includes your beloved suburbs.
Please point out one regular on here who is anti-city. One. The bias is clearly ITP hating on things OTP. Clearly. You have many defending the suburbs against the ridiculous arguments, but you have no regular on here with a decent reputation spewing anti-city stuff.

I agree with haute above. This is going beyond the pale.
