Happy to see my hometown 4th in the world, not happy to see our archrivals sitting in 3rd in the world.

No honorable mention to Chicago for 9th place? You said in one thread you lived there in the past, but hated its politics. But still said it was one of your Favorite cities after NYC? But you lessen it, in virtually every thread and vote against it in virtually every thread and that is many? You even entered the Chicago vs Vancouver thread? To merely post your vote was for Vancouver? . Short and bitter. All I came in to say.

Thanks for the sight though..... you posted here to look over.

RedJohn, that's a really cool picture that goes along with your hometown's ranking And the #4 ranking itself is pretty impressive.

I thought Toronto would rank a bit higher.

Just saying..... we argued on Chicago in other threads. You lessening my post in defense of Chicago in threads. Finally you gave a part reason why? Chicago politics. But I never argued on that. Just gave my short comment ... That's it.

But I like sights with statistics. Because it is not based on personal gripes on cities that lead to a pattern of knocks sometimes?

Certainly you want comments on where cities fall in this statistics sight you posted? I merely then here.... give honorable mention to Chicago then. 9th in the world isn't bad. I certainly won't argue SF bettered it by one? I applaud any cities achievements.

Your posts are so confusing, I feel like I'm reading a text message from my 10 year old niece.

"No honorable mention to Chicago for 9th place?" What? He listed Chicago and he didn't make any special mention of any of the listed NA cities. You just wanted him (who has nothing to do with the list) to give extra brownie points to Chicago? I'm confused.

Sorry you are so confused? My post was not to you. Let's not take it to drivel now. The tread deserves post on the Sight and where cities fall? Let it be me giving honorable mention to Chicago then and all North American cities. Making the list.

I'm surprised to see that Chicago was behind Boston last year...least it's where it should be this year.

I second RadicalAtheist. I understand English may be your second language, but lazy Americans who do speak second/third languages have much better writing/grammar/punctuation/speaking skills than you. Sorry, but no excuse.

You've been on this site for a year now just about (which means you've lived in the USA for about a year, or more). One would think your writing skills would have improved with time, but unfortunately, it would appear your sense of the English language has actually only gotten worse. And you've been called out many times for it.

It's almost to the point where I honestly can't stand to even look at your posts - they are such jumbled messes of random misspelled words, sometimes in random ALL CAPS. You should, quite frankly, be ASHAMED of how TERRIBLE your English is, and you should not write another word on here until you learn the language of the country in which you live in.

Finally, I am going to ignore you so I don't have to read your response - I won't be able to read or understand it anyway, and it will only frustrate me on so many levels.

Sorry for being so harsh (maybe if we're ALL this harsh on you, you'll get the message), but right now you and SDPMiami are just too much. Too much.

I haven't had any difficult understanding SDPMiami's posts...why have you?

1600 in PA only 600 in Philly. That's why we need to build those condo towers to draw these people back
