I'd rather not waste my time with this thread. Most arguments against Dallas have been fair ones based on fact. Most arguments against Houston have been based on either childish, immature statements or self-derived "facts" from Dallas residents who (uninformed of its full reality) mash Houston down to being a boring, ugly, oily mess and try to make their city into something it is not, and say things like, "Oh, I'm sure Houston is a really nice place," when they really want to say, "whatever, Houston sucks." A lot of the time, the only people who don't like Houston are those who like Dallas. I'm not sure why we have to choose when I love both cities. So, Panam, do with this info what you will.

I think you view of the thread (and posters) is a bit skewed against those who prefer Dallas, but I'll agree that at this point the thread has become a waste of time.

Not a big fan of any of these Dallas vs. anything else threads....think they breed controversy. Since one probably lives in either place because of emplyment/loved ones, it makes the point of the argument for one or the other somewhat moot. People will find ways to validate/enjoy either as niether are bad places to live.

Totally agree..I wish there was a way to stop these "my city is better than your city" type discussions because they usually wind up ending badly...

Not sure how you reached that assumption, but okay.

And I've never argued that.
