Anyways, not all of Richmond's residents are from NC, as that's a pretty generic statement to say.
Well yes thats part of it. I never said all of Richmond's people were NC transplants, I just said we have quite a few
You know the three R's..... lol

Anyways, what I read about history was that Tidewater Virginia stretched in to what is now NC- because that part of NC was once part of Virginia.

Ditto, the original Virginia colony extended south to about 34 degrees latitude.

Richmonder, PLEASE STOP! I do NOT want to see you get banned again (Vasinger ringing a bell to fellow old-timers?) because I feel as if you DO have some great content to offer to our forum in moderate dosages. However, if you continue to post a new thread about the South every two hours, you're inevitably going to be banned again for "trolling." I was kind of hoping my "Richmond vs. Scranton" poll on the City vs. City forum would have been the best medicine to tucker you out (hence why I posted it in the first place to bait you into it), yet like the Energizer bunny you just keep going and going! The Omaha chest-thumping stopped successfully with my infamous "Omaha vs. Scranton" poll thread, but you, my friend, are incapable of being stonewalled (No, not Stonewall Jackson!) LOL!

Please, stop, for your own sake. I HATE seeing people getting banned as I came pretty close myself and dreaded that feeling.

I admit some of its entertaining, but it gets old. Matter of fact I think at least one of those threads got deleted already.

It doesn't really "annoy" me all that much as I find the North vs. South debates to be interesting, but if Richmonder keeps this sort of behavior up indefinitely he WILL be banned eventually. You can't have 100 posts about the same subject with only slight variations.

Holy crap. Just barely in the South? Are you not aware that you yourself are in the South, Richmonder? There is the Upper South (VA, WV, KY, NC, TN, AR), and then there is the Deep South (LA, MS, AL, GA, SC, FL), and then the Western South (Oklahoma and Texas). Georgia and South Carolina are the Deep South in every sense of the word...how you would say SC is not the South is beyond me, especially since it was the first to secede from the Union.

More than likely, they're talking about moving to Charlotte or Raleigh. I'm not sure how Charlotte or Raleigh would have more shopping than DC in any sense whatsoever.

Do you think Richmond is that boring a city that people have to drive to DC or Norfolk to find something to do? I dont think so.
No, but DC is going to have some things that Richmond doesn't simply due to size. DC will get more concerts, has major league sports, more shopping, etc. I'm not talking about Richmonders having to travel to DC every week for something, but when that "big city itch" hits every once in a while, it's off to DC. I don't know what's so hard to understand about this. You should at least understand this from a major league sports perspective. The DC teams have a very major following in Virginia. You don't think people take trips up I-95 every once in a while to attend a game, especially if it's the playoffs or championship? C'mon now. I know, I know, you'll tell me that you don't follow sports nor do you know anyone who does.

But these are not my words. I am quoting Back2DC. He said this to me directly. He said that VA is not the South, and NC is just barely the South.

So by his logic, SC and GA are not Deep South. Crazy, I know.
