Omaha: 8 (very very polite, soft-spoken but reserved people. Omahans dont come around as cold but they arent the friendliest people either, not that friendly but a good place to ask for directions and alot of people at stores will say have a nice day but very polite, pretty strong sense of community amongst the populous)

Lincoln: 2 (just 30 miles down the road from Omaha, but very snooty arrogant snooby people. A vast, vast majority of the populous acts like they are royalty. Some of the older generation of the people in this town arent that rude, but overall and overwhelmingly very very arrogant and mean people especially people in their 20s. Just amazingly arrogant and the people look down on everything even if they live in a small old wooden shack and a 20 year car with a loud muffler

Fargo, North Dakota: 1. These have got to be the coldest, most arrogant people I have ever seen in my life. They will not give you the time of day and they see themselves as being pure-perfection

Minneapolis/St. Paul: Minneapolis 7 St. Paul 10. Polite, a little standoffish, easy to carry on a conversation, fairly friendly people

Columbus, Ohio: 7. Not rude, Not friendly. They have some people there, I would say more neutral but they are fairly polite overall and when I was there people said excuse me constantly
Again you have insulted the entire city of Lincoln. Find something better to do with your time. I'm getting sick of all your negative comments about Lincoln.

I do believe that MattDen has been banned from CD due to a whole bunch of trollish negative comments. Therefore, he won't be adding any new ones. You'll just get yourself aggravated for nothing if you keep getting steamed every time an old thread with one of his posts turns up.

That post by MattDen is two years old. I've never spent any time in Lincoln, NE therefore I cannot comment either way. But it seems to me that he's entitled to air his opinion on the subject.

What's up with the double standard? Why is perfectly acceptable for some people to be able to post an honest assessment of a community or their experiences while other people get flamed for it?

Listen dude, in some areas of the country you have people who thrive on what other's think of them (Chicago, NYC, LA, Houston, and it seems Omaha), and in cities where little attention is paid to them, nobody really cares. I mean really, I see people in Phoenix defending themselves against what are totally accurate facts (it's dry heat!), and people in Chicago do exactly the same. How often do you really see someone from Portland come on here and say "But the rain's not that bad"? Why? Well, people in Portland are not so image concious as those in Chicago, nor those in Los Angeles. Some people really care what others think of their city for some god unkown reason. If you like it, enjoy; who gives a sh*t what others think, they obviously do not live there for a reason.
