Lol! I've been reading this forum for a minute and it seems like all people want here is typical chain fast food joints, and gets excited about every basic drive thru joint that gets built. Personally the only 1 that's needed in this area is Popeyes.

Awwww...I don't think it's that so much. There's plenty of excitement about local places too. It's just that a homegrown place has to be open (or close enough to it) to generate a lot of enthusiasm. More familiar brands already have that attachment built in, so when we're daydreaming about places we'd like to see open, those are what typically pop into our heads.

I guess that's true but it just seems like allot of fast food joint threads on here that's all.

I agree. Seems like a few posters just want to cover every square foot of available land with a fast food place. Doesn't anybody eat at home anymore?

I agree. I wish we could consolidate all of these fast food posts into one. Not sure why anyone cares how many more fast food joints we can cram into town.

Maybe a moderator can combine all of ATL fan's threads into one thread?

That would go a long way to clearing this mess up.

As it is, it looks like the people of Greenville are obsessed with crappy food and gas stations.

Or even better, crappy food from a gas station.

Or a strip club.

Just had a thought! Maybe a seafood restaurant/strip club. I'll call it Fish n' Tlts.

I can't even imagine why so many people here are obsessed with fast food joints when there are so many wonderful restaurants. And, yes, whatever happened to eating at home? It saves a lot of money, and you are aware of what's going into your food!

I don't even live in SC anymore, but I still come to this subforum, because I lived in the area for seven years, still have in-law's in the area, and still own property in Easley. I have noticed that in the last few months we went from talking about actual developments to probably 97% speculation and dreaming about everything (thanks to one poster, obviously). It's become pretty pathetic. I really enjoyed this forum before. What can we do? Really, I would like to know what can we actually do to get it back to being as interesting and informative as it was before without all the excess wishlisting?

There is now a single thread for that discussion. The next step would be to lock all the old threads and then merge any new threads into the existing thread. It is interesting to occasionally discuss wishlist items for the area but it can be a bit much when you have to wade through 10-15 of those threads to find useful information based on actual development.
