This is why I found the topic so fascinating. There are numerous factors that are coming into play here and they vary by cities and states.

I agree, but it is only part of the equation and the factors involved have a different relevance in different states.

And as for the person that said those are the states with the most pride, so true! Haha
This alone does not explain the high post counts of Alaska or Maine.

Funny, but further proof about the "interest theory" and that the parameters involved vary by region.

Some states are about where one might expect...like Florida...New York....Pennsylvania closely matches with a 6th and 7th ranking. But Florida is also higher because of what you mentioned and many retirees with time and money.

People in Maine and Alaska have nothing better to do because it's too cold to do anything outside for a long portion of the year.

The population of each state is one of the biggest factors in the total number of posts...yet California, a much larger (population) state than Texas has far less posts..... .
