1. The mentality exists because many people don't like change. For some people, ANY change is bad news. You don't even have to move an inch to experience it, all you have to be is the new guy in the office and some of your new co-workers will welcome you in there and some will look upon you as competition for their next promotion and seek to marginalize you.

2. We've had several versions of this thread before. I'm tired of it. People will whine about anything. When we lived back near Washington, DC, my wife used to whine about the crowded roads and "why don't all these people go back where they came from." Truth is, DC metro area is one of the most transient areas of the nation due to lots of military, lots of governmental people coming in or leaving every election cycle of 2, 4, 6 years. I gave her the same speech many of us have made here before when this useless topic comes up (by whatever name) - that it's a free country, you can live where you wish as long as you pay your way. It has always been that way, it always will be that way.

Just like we say "you can't pick your relatives" we also can't pick where we are born, but feel we have the right to move if we choose.

I have bought, and I have moved, and I love it. The people I have met have been some of the most warm and welcoming people I have ever met, but I don't get that impression from everyone.

Am I reading the vibes correctly, or have I got it totally wrong?...
Whether one or two people out of ten or 100 don't like me because I moved to Colorado is about 69th on my list of problems in life.
