...and to you that makes them Southern? How offensive.

Oh, so this is about geography? If that were the case, people wouldn't be throwing Florida to the Northeast or to Cuba.

Have you been to this state outside of New orleans? Are you also one of those people who bases the entirety of New York on NYC and the entirety of California on Los Angeles/San Francisco and the entirety of New England on Connecticut or Boston?

New Orleans is a tiny fraction of Louisiana. It is not even the dominant culture of southeast Louisiana. As soon as you leave the metro area this state changes radically.

If you think the whole state of Louisiana is not southern because of one city, you are, frankly, too uneducated on the subject to make a valid statement.
I'm not saying all of Louisiana is like New Orleans, but it has enough of an impact, in my opinion, to warrant it to be just slightly higher than its current position. Not South Florida high, of course - more like around Tennessee's level. Apologies if my word choice was a bit off.

I'm sorry, YnOhTnA, you seem like a nice young fellar.

But if you truly believe the text in bold then you have never been to all four states. OK/TX are much much closer to classic Southern culture while Maryland/Delaware share most affinity with the Northeast. To use your terminology, Maryland/Delaware have a Northeastern "vibe."

Question: Are you are just being contrarian to continue the discussion? Unfortunately it's really hard to add anything to the discourse if you cannot be taken seriously. Something you might like to consider.

I will also agree with that. I would give Virginia the slight edge and Florida is a very close second. NOVA is very close to DC and is not a very southern area any longer.

No, Maryland and Delaware have more of the classic Southern culture than Texas and Oklahoma because the latter two states didn't have the strong antebellum history preceding the Civil War, where as Maryland and Delaware did. Oklahoma was a Native American reservation, while Texas was its own country.

Just look at people like $mk8795, who insisted that Maryland is the south.

LOL You know something, buddy? The exact SAME thought occurred to me. I wouldn't doubt it a bit. The same type irrationality, the same bizarre reasoning (if one could call it that at all), the same inane, and random putting together of numbers/letters to make a screen name, the same refusal to address direct questions with empirical evidence to counter, the obvious desire to get a rise out of someone for the attention it gets them, etc,?

Well they all make for an extremely good link between the two posters. I am stopping just short of saying the two are one and the same, but certain things seem to fall in place so obvious a blind man couldn't see it.

We regulars all know that the $mk character periodically appears and repeats the same old broken record then, when people catch on and he starts getting ignored? He will disappear for a time.

The next episode in the predicable sequence is for him to reappear after a measured length of time predicated on when more "newbies" come onto the forum and repeat the performance...and so it goes time after time and again.

In a nutshell, if $mk and Ynoh are not one and the same? Then my surmise is that they are probably either brothers or first-cousins!

And? They probably ought to be treated (in terms of response and reply), the same!
