You don't give up, do you? Forbes is a joke. They are not a travel research company. DK Shifflet & Associates is a travel reseacrh company... An accredited one at that.

I never give up? Count the number of posts from me (or anyone else for the matter) vs. from you, and you clearly win in the "never give up" department. LOL

DK Shifflet & Associates--an obscure, no name company that was pulled out of a hat, has gotten more free advertising from you and downtown1 then it probably has received in its entire history.

It just goes to show and reinforce the level of influence, dominance and greatness of LA that it would be so discussed, debated, praised, and ridiculed on a daily basis on City Data. People don't spend this much time talking about city's that are irrelevant and boring.

All of the bashing is sort of a back handed compliment. It shows that people are really drawn to and captivated by the place whether they profess to like it or not.

Lots of people like to talk about crime, but does that make it good?

This thread started off as being completely professional, wouldnt you agree? I know youre aiming part of your response at me, which is fine, but once again, it was the LA folks who popped on here and had to start making rediculously dumb remarks that are A) untrue B) meant to flame and C) do exactly what YOU claim LA-haters are doing. You need to actually READ these posts and get to the root of the problem before you go dismissing it as "people who are jealous () of LA" coming on here and hating. Lets go back and see where it all started on this thread. Got something to say now?

donjuan said:"hahha thats true LA is the most hated city but still it gets the most tourist and all the famous people want to live. LA is known all over the world unlike chicago. my vote is for LA. there is nothing i want to see in chicago period, nothing comes to mind. hey im being honest. what is there to see there? lake michigan. if that lake is not in chicago then close enough, bcuz i can care less. i dont care about those great lakes when i can see the pacific ocean."

Really, is it necessary to say Chicago is known for nothing? haha I know most dismiss those kind of retarded comments as, well, retarded, but once again the beehive was disturbed by, GASP!, one of your own LA lovers.

True for some, not true for others. Although I much prefer SF, there is a lot to like and dislike about both LA and SF. Both aren't the cleanest cities in the world, and both have their share of crazies...but both have a lot to offer too. I'm telling you - some days when it's 56 and foggy here and I look on the weather and see it's 75 and sunny in LA, I think about heading out...but SF is so beautiful to me.

I heard a great quote about LA once. I can't quote exactly, but it was to the effect of:

When's it's 5 below zero in New York, it's 78 in LA, and when it's 105 in New York, it's 78 in LA.

THAT is the best thing about LA to me, the consistent warm weather throughout the year.

But, SF is the best and most unique city in the US IMO.

You sure are full of quotes! What's not true for some, but true for others?

Is that all you can say...Gee...this is the 3rd time I have you cornered

So no more saying DKS&A is an obscure, no name company, ok? The people who work for California travel industry must be really stupid to hire a "no name" company to assist them on travel market research, don't you agree?
