This list gets major points for ambitiousness but loses most of them for accuracy. Notable major errors from my perspective: Rhode Island (it's Central Falls, Woonsocket, Pawtucket or maybe Johnston); Vermont (maybe Barre?); New York (not that Binghamton is beloved, but it's definitely not the punching bag -- Newburgh, perhaps?); Illinois (in that part of the state, Springfield is hated way more than Peoria, but for the real answer, try Cairo); New Mexico (don't know the answer, but Las Cruces is pretty well liked, even though I didn't love it); New Hampshire (also not sure, but not Keene).

That's an understatement. Johnstown, PA? Spokane, WA? Throwing darts at a map.

I don't think SC has one for any significant number of people but Mrytle Beach would be the closet thing due to all the tourists and it not being all that attractive with all the Wings surf shops on every corner and so on. A lot of residents don't go there.

In Colorado, Commerce City and Greeley could be runners up.

I'd have to say Vernon, California. This city constantly gets ragged on for high levels of pollution. Hardly any residences, mostly rundown and grimy factories.

I don't think that city is big enough to have an impact. 112 residents.

I don't think this thread is long enough to hold all of the punching bags in LA County.

That's a joke, right? If it gets more punches, it's probably only because Raleigh is so much larger than Chapel Hill. In the Triangle, I think that Cary gets more than its fair share of punches (from me included).

Remember, it was actually me (from Raleigh) that first suggested to remove Durham from the list and replace it with Rocky Mount.


Adding to the list are my takes on Florida.

Hialeah is a pretty good punching bag in South Florida. Orlando gets trashed by South Florida as well. In other parts of Florida, Miami is hated on in a big way. As for Jacksonville and The Panhandle, I just don't consider them at all. I suppose that that's my ultimate punch?

In Georgia, the red-headed stepchild, punching bag most certainly has to be Augusta. It is such a joke throughout the state that it is universally disparaged as Disgusta. coming in a close second and third would be Albany and Macon.
