Just a reminder: All posts should be related to Louisville. A little thread creep understandably happens but posts that are only focused on another location are off topic.
When I post in bold red that is moderator action and, per the TOS, can only be discussed through Direct Message.

Why did the moderator.....? A little about deletions and infractions

My wife and I left Louisville for phoenix 3 years ago and we have zero regrets. I literally don't miss any part of it other than a few friends and the food scene. I was not a native Kentuckian and never felt like I belonged there, but a lot of natives are unhappy when they move away. We are going to san Francisco next month and I have to say it might be the best place I've ever visited. Every time we are there the people we meet are always cool. I have never experienced the snobbery that you speak of, and I have an accent. as a matter of opinion I found Louisville to be one of the rudest places I've ever lived. sure people will say hello to you, but please and thank you aren't part of the local culture. I often forget how bad it is until I return. walk up to most service counters and watch the employee stare at you with no greeting or acknowledgement that you are even there. saying hello is not the same thing as being respectful of others. I can understand how living in the bay could get tiresome though. way too many people.

I don't think I'd want to permanately live anhwhere else. The city is just perfect for me, with how things are, especially the lack of vehicle emissions testing, or a lot of restraints towards them. The only thing really getting on my nerves is the ammount of hotels being stuffed downtown, and the seemingly hostile take over of UofL. UofL must be ran by a mad scientist hellbent on city domination.
