Uh, no I didn't or I was using it as a verb, not as a noun in the plural.

When I asked for examples, you regurgitate what I've already said, that there is nothing else besides its the nearest big city. If there is no further influence, you've made my case...

I'm not bent out of shape. I think I was clear in where I was coming from. When I questioned your position, because you insinuated some "other influence" was "at work", you come back and say the same thing I've been saying all along...
I never "insinuated some 'other influence' was 'at work'" and I was very clear about what I meant in post #355. What in the world are you talking about? Seems like you're just trying to pick a fight for no reason and for the life of me, I have no clue why.

You didn't say this?

Whatever dog, I don't want a fight. This isn't that serious to me. Apparently we just coming from two different points to make the same conclusion, I'm cool with it...

You misunderstood me; my point was that a very large metro area exerts its influence in different ways and at different levels within its region. A city like Richmond, being closer to DC, will obviously be influenced at a greater level than Raleigh, which is farther away. Hampton Roads has a different level of influence given the strong military/defense industry present there. And so on and so forth.

This is admittedly anecdotal, but the only time I've ever heard DC people claim the Tidewater area as part of the "DMV" (I hate that acronym with a passion btw) was when that one female gymnast from VA Beach (I think?) was getting notice during one of the recent Olympics.
Must've been the local media. They think the Baltimore area is part of the DMV (I always get a chuckle out of that perception lol).
