It's not my hometown. Like a couple of million other people, I live here by CHOICE.

Sorry your transfer hasn't happened yet.

not yet =) I said in a few months less then a month ago so.....

are you sure it's not your hometown? the way you go on and on about it makes it seem so.......
Atlanta is just not popular to a large amount of people, thats pretty much what it comes down to. thats why all these Atlanta threads end this way.
now please go on with your b*tchfest with everyone that says something about Atlanta you disagree with about why and why not Atlanta is or isn't

Don't confuse what happens here on CD with reality. Sunbelt cities in general, not just Atlanta, are routinely trashed here on CD (and sometimes the criticism is warranted), yet they continue to be the fastest-growing cities in the nation. I think enough people think Atlanta is "popular" enough to have made it one of the top 5 fastest-growing metros of this decade, probably of the last decade as well.

Actually Atlanta was the fastest growing metro of last decade. Dallas/Fort Worth is the fastest growing one of this decade.

No, he was not making NYC look bad. He was defending NYC when someone bashed it for no reason.

This is the PERFECT analysis of NYC and London.

Sometimes London is voted higher, but NYC gets the best of London most of the time.

Yes, they are. However, every city and region is trashed on this site.

I have noticed LA, NYC, Chicago, Philly, Boston, NJ, Miami and every city in between be trashed. Honestly, I don't think one city on this site hasn't been pushed under the bus.

You're right, they all do. But as a region, none other has taken a beating like the Sunbelt/South.
