Mid-sized, affordable-ish Western cities that have grown pretty consistently over the last century and don't have much of an issue with crime, e.g. Reno, SLC, Billings, Boise.

Phoenix.

It, along with other retirement, sunbelt, coldweather/tax escape cities are full of recent transplants who are in the honeymoon phase of their new life all circle jerking each other.

Actually Cleveland has quite a few continuing upbeat threads. Unfortunately, there are a few miserable posters who are so apparently unhappy with themselves they take it out on the city. They try to bring everyone else down with their negative posts even in the most positive threads.

But there are others who counter this negativity with more positive points of view.

In any forum, there's a fine line between "objective clarification" and being a "homer" or "booster."

I second this. I saw WR Native's posts and links enough times (and others too ) to convince me there is something unique about the city. I visited and really enjoyed my time there. Positive posters who advertise what their city has help out those who don't know anything about it.

I think people are talking about two different things. KodeBlue is quite correct that the the Baltimore sub-forum is mostly made up of dedicated city haters who make no attempt to be temperate, constructive, factual, or fair. In contrast, I believe that Baltimore is generally treated fairly in city-vs-city discussions. Baltimore is usually trashed in national political discussions. But why would anybody read that stuff anyway?
