The fact is that the large Texas cities, Atlanta and North Carolina are the states that people want to move to and some people are just jealous

Texas is under constant attack on City vs City, I doubt its being attacked on its own forum (I could be wrong though) where the majority of its posts are.

I really like Texas and daily it gets attacked for no reason.

But people on City-Data hate LA and love San Francisco so right there you have reason for a lot of posts.

N Carolina, Texas, New Jersy, Arizona and Colorado seem to all rank somewhat higher in posts than in population. Perhaps lower costs of living, better job opportunities, higher perceived quality of life than where many are running away from these days be it a move to a neighboring state or cross country?

My personal opininion is the big cities in TX are incredible job creation machines and if I was young starting out would definitely look there. NC diverse landscape with two booming metro areas and Colorado front range with the rockies at your footsetp to me are the two must look at alternatives to FL, CA or anywhere up north..
The job market search is probably a big factor as well as the others you mention.

There will always be people moving to NYC, no jealousy here. Actually, I'd prefer not that many people to move here.

But many do so why do you hate on them?

Most people do like these states and that is why they are being discussed and why they are growing
