You are right about these rankings being subjective. They are all over the place. This one by Brookings, ranks Columbia one of the 20 weakest performing metros:

And it ranks Greenville and Charleston in the second-weakest group. What's going on now is more important than what has gone on since the beginning of the biggest recession in U.S. history, and the state's major metros all seem to be doing better now.

Charleston did rank as one of Americas 15 "drunkest cities" haha: New study: Charlestonians love their liquor | The Post and Courier, Charleston SC - News, Sports, Entertainment

The area, in particular North Charleston, happen to be also one of the most violent in America. N Chas was ranked as high as 6th most dangerous cities by FBI (2006) and last year the "Neck Area" of Chas/N Chas was listed as one of the "25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods" in the US.

Charleston: Beautiful, violent, historic, trendy, violent, polite, hot, humid, rich, poor, named #1 tourist destination in United States this year, named one of most violent cities in US, named one of most beautiful and polite cities, named on of the drunkest cities.........well, the city truly does have it all.

As for why take a positive post and look for negative....."some" folks from G'ville have an inferiority complex and want Greenville to be what Columbia, Charleston, Charlotte, etc, already are.
