It's silly to demand that you change your screen name. We all get to know each other on this board, and I would NEVER be able to keep up if people started changing their names!

I'm with Roxanne!

I don't post often but felt I should this time. I will be moving to Mt. Pleasant this summer & greatly appreciate reading all the different posts , especially the different perspectives & how others arrive at them. I don't really pay attention to screen names, unless they are extreme. We all are entitled to our opinions but criticizing someone for their screen name is childish. It's like a child making fun of another child's name. We're all adults, PLEASE lets get along!!!

Default time for me to chime in

It is my post so time for me to chime in

Comment allez-vous mon ami ? (do you hear my Brooklyn accent)
I have been here on city-data over 3 years and used MichaelNYC as was still living in NYC. Been officially here in S.C. for just 1 week. You do the math Francois mon ami. One week does not make me a Southerner (and no longer a New Yorker) nor do I attest to be ever be a Southerner, it is simply not my roots. We all come from different places which will always be apart of us. But we try to mesh where ever we live. Be polite, be respectful, do not judge. It is funny, you mention my Brooklyn accent, I do not seem to remember ever speaking with you personally Francois, you must be psychic I speak with people here all the time and 9 out of 10 never think I am from New York. But you know better mon ami, bonne chance, bonne sante, au revoir. I will miss you.

Can't judge a person by what state he or she is from. Neither can you judge from two or three letters in a screen name.

Don't let it bum you out Michael (not that you seem to be letting it), it's no secret that some people on here are itching for a confrontation. One sees and hears all the things a __________ (fill in the blank, in this case New Yorker) does that boils his or her blood and jumps at the chance to project his or her assumptions onto the nearest target, without knowing anything more about the "target" than where the "target" lives or once lived.

Such is life JG... such is reality... I am used to it. Do I sweat it out... would never waste my time on such dribble. Yet that is how prejudice and racism starts and is continued. And not the simple dribble of some words/comments posted here on city-data, but on a much larger scale throughout the world with devastating consequences. Such is life JG, shame... and continues throughout the ages. We long for, but cannot find Thomas More's Utopia. So anyway, how is Wilmington ? It was on our short list of Charleston, Savannah and Wilmington.

I just want to say this thread is very helpful

Someone going from asking to neighborhoods, getting solid answers, and him coming back. Reporting as he looks, visits, and eventually finds his neighborhood and buys a house is great to see and very helpful. Alot I find someone will ask a question, get what they need and be gone instead of coming back and helping everyone else out as well.
So as someone who is just starting to look, wanted to say thank you to Michael.

And also I would be coming from Pittsburgh where we have our own weird accent and made up words.
and while most things we can give up, the native religion in Pittsburgh is not possible to forget and leave behind(i.e. steelers).

I hope you continue to post as you get settled in down there.
