You care too much what other people think. Yes I was right because DC is an alpha world class city but I was incorrect about Atlanta. I already said that many post ago? Again what are you blabbering about now? YOU said DC wasn't an alpha world class city? Go to bed.
When did I say DC wasn't a world city?

WHEN, find my post for saying that and I'll apologize. I will.

Quote my post where I said that DC wasn't a world city.

I simply asked you to show me where DC was listed as a world city. And I did this because I knew you would post a link which also included Atlanta. And I was right.

Go to bed? It's 7 am where I am now. Why would I go to bed at seven AM on a Thursday?

Hey, Atlanta is also an alpha city, in the same tier.

"There's differences. Plus, minus, etc."

Yep, and they are both listed in the same sub-tier too. Both alpha minus.

"You fail to comprehend things or?"

Huh?

FACT: You were proven wrong. Plain and simple.

You can keep amending your words and moving the goal posts all you want.
You obviously haven't read my previous post. Or you just can't comprehend words. I said Atlanta not being in the same tier as DC is MY personal OPINION. Get over it.

So you resort to personal opinion when you've been proven to be factually wrong?

"Where are you getting that DC is an alpha world city from? Please post a study that shows this as soon as possible."

Oh, it's your opinion now? I thought we were trading in statistics. We are, after all, posting links to studies and such.

See here's the thing Deluusions, if you weren't so rude to people ("blabbering", "SMH", etc), I probably would ignore you when you're factually wrong. But you should get as good as you give.

I used facts to back up DC was an alpha world class city. I never used stats to say Atlanta wasn't. Read. The poster asked where it said DC was an Alpha class city!! He said nothing about Atlanta.

But in that same post, you said Atlanta wasn't in the same tier--and then produced a factual source that showed DC as an Alpha- city and Atlanta was in that same tier. You're really twisting yourself into knots here.

Stay on hush mode. Stay factually wrong and stay being able not to comprehend jack squat.
"DC is an alpha world class city. What are you blabbering about? It's not in the same tier with Atlanta, Houston and definitely not Dallas.... smh."

That's your original post on the matter. The one that started it all. Where does the word "opinion" appear? For that matter, where do the words, "I think" even come into play?

When you're discussing something that is statistically measurable AND you fail to frame your thoughts as personal opinion AND you then post statistical information, nobody has any reason to think that you're just offering up an opinion.

Also, please stop with the name calling. "Tick," etc. It's childish and it's beneath you. I've read good posts from you on other threads. I know you're better than this.

Atlanta isn't in the same tier off my OPINION. Although my whole post and purpose of it was saying DC is an alpha world class city. I've made myself clear already why are you still riding my coat tail about it?

Atlanta is being disrespected because it lacks the density of C-D darling cities.
My point was only dealing with urbanity. Not with anything else. Sorry for the confusion.
