I agree with desert sun. The city vs city threads can be fun and interesting.

In other words, a disaster in the making.
I could not agree more. I can't think of one *vs* thread that has not dissolved into childish bickering.

There needs to be a "X vs. Y" forum. In this thread anything is compared. This way it includes everything on City-Data forum and makes it a succesful sub-forum. Comparisons need to be relative or the thread will be deleted under strict regulation.

Yes! There is nothing less informative than flamers arguing over cities they have never even visited. Put that slop in a seperate forum!

I personally get tired of the comparison threads bumping the more legitimate threads to page 2.

I think we should have a special sub forum just for Omaha and Scranton

Maybe we could even set an age limit to 21
You can tell someone is about 17 when they continuously bash certain cities they have never been to. One poster I can think of was about 16 and did everything he could to bash St Louis and talk up Detroit and how the architecture was so much better there. Remind me, what does a 17 year old making childish posts on c-d know about architecture again?

You must not spend much time on these forums then. The arguing is childish, usually between 2 people who have never been to the other city they are putting down, and live in the city they are building up.

Well, actually, I would also support something that says you have to be at least 18 (but yeah, 21 sounds better) to post here. But I guess that's for another topic. Heck, I know some of those who start these fighting threads are over 21 anyway - maybe you should have to be 35 or older to post here. LOL
