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!
Spoken like a true Maryland hating Good Ol' Boy......

4) Sweet tea is not common is Delaware, and I don't believe pecan pie is a big thing.
5) Despite having essentially one major university (two if you count the HBCU), Delaware does not have a huge college football culture. Even during the season the team made the Div. IAA championship, fans would routinely leave at halftime.



But no one takes that guy seriously.
Just like no one outside of the deep south takes them seriously when they start rambling about where the south begins and ends despiting the Mason and Dixon line......

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

Delaware's not below the Mason-Dixon Line, though.

That's baltimore/dc.

Not maryland.

Have you been to this state outside of dc and baltimore? 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?

Baltimore and dc is a 3/8 fraction of maryland. It is not even the dominant culture of central and southern maryland. As soon as you leave the two beltways this state changes radically.

If you think the whole state of maryland is not southern because of two major cities, you are, frankly, too uneducated on the subject to make a valid statement.
i already told you I've been to many places in Maryland and you refuse to friggin' read my posts. You literally ignore everything anybody tells you. How dare you edit my post to serve your own ends.

You are a damn moron. Leave me alone you psychopath. Get curb stomped you waste of oxygen.

Florida followed closely by Virginia. As a Virginian, I refer to my state as a Mid-Atlantic state. It sort of feels like it's a southern state in the middle of transiting into a northern one.

While that may be true, keep in mind that Delaware/Maryland/DC/NoVA are all geographically and economically affiliated with the Northeast, so it's much easier to consider them culturally northern than Atlanta. Likewise, if Kentucky were to receive a massive influx of transplants, it would be easier to consider northern than if Alabama did. I wouldn't call South Florida northern at all, just not really "southern".

The only place in Indiana I hear southern accents is right down on the border. The rest sound Midwestern to me, especially from Indianapolis northward. They sound just like Michiganders.

If you think country culture and hick culture make a place southern, then color ninety percent of the country in Dixie, Buster.
Your perception of a southern accent is different from others. Not everyone lives in Louisiana. My vote goes to Maryland, and most people on this thread agree. It's below the M-D line, but their twangs (yes, there are southern twangs there) are not as thick as LA, or AL. Sure, there are twangs in other states, IN, etc, but geographically it is not the south. Yes, you have "hick culture" in places like Maine, but guess what? It's not in the south. There is more than one way to interpret southern depending on where you're from. That's what makes these discussions fun and interesting. Lighten up already.

This entire thread is pointless. There are southern states and states that have southern regions and history. You just have to understand that people are not gonna always give Maryland it's cred as a southern state. One of the basic symbols of the south is the confederate battle flag and people usually consider any state with a star on that flag to be southern or have a southern association.
