kentucky attitude-"i've lived here all my life and love it. i went across state lines once and didn't care for it. all those big city folk with thier educations and good grammar just rubbed me wrong. I much prefer the variety of not ever trying anything new. it's that kind of variety that keeps me in the same county for my entire life."

almost forgot.. "if you don't like it, get out"

kytoaz attitude:

Negatively stereotype all residents and natives of a state I do not care for personally, continue to write similar derogatory posts at every opportunity, criticize others' grammar while failing to punctuate, capitalize, or correctly spell words in my own posts, and fail to see that my own judgmentalism and limited interests may have anything to do with my perceptions.

my perceptions are based on a wide variety of places and people, and my comments are not always negative. I have seen and done enough in my lifetime to actually have a point of comparison, which was my original point. how can someone argue the superiority of a place when they have never experienced another? I see both the good and the bad here, and I think my posts reflect that. now if you want to insult my typing skills, you'll get no argument from me, I suck at it. so their! lol

kytoaz: I was too harsh on you, for which I apologize. Many of your other posts have been spot-on, imho.

However...sweeping statements such as yours which led to my previous post in this thread get my goat. Avoiding terms such as "always", "never", "no one", "all", "none", "everyone", etc. usually leads to far more persuasive discussions, which are more likely to convince your readers (rather than getting their goats).

Pax?

understood and accepted. I also have a goat that is gotten once in a while, and usually by small-minded people that condemn and belittle any opinion that differs from their own. I over-reacted to them in the same way.

it's cool.
