The thought of city subforums reminds me of a certain site that was shut down. The name of it now escapes me. It DID have city specific subforums. I enjoyed reading some of the "truth" that was shared since I knew or knew of those in question. It could get gossipy though which is a bit much to tolerate.

Traffic Kvetch Korner
A place to complain about your fellow drivers, and explain why you are the best driver since the Model T, and everyone else is a big fat stupid idiot. Give your BS scientific expert advice on how to drive correctly to solve the problem forever.

Weather Worries
Al Roker is a moron! Milk, bread & eggs! Stronger Than the Storm™! This snow sucks, I cant' wait to move to Florida! LOL, you call this snow??!! This is nothing, you snowflakes! OMG it's so hot, I can't wait to move to Colorado! You call this hot??! In Georgia, we call this "Spring".

Foodie Chat and Nosh Goss
This is where our hungry cake holes jabber and drool excitedly about new grocery store openings and restaurant openings, and who has the best pizza and bagels and deli and Thai food.

NJPPC (New Jersey Political Pissing Contest)
Self explanatory.

Governor Roast
Do you have a clever burn about Christie's FUPA or Murphy's monster leprechaun teeth? Showcase them here! This is where you workshop those jokes.

Jersey Haterz Ball and Expat Canteen
A festive gathering for all the most flamboyant Jersey-hating pimps to talk their most exquisite trash talk about the Garden State. Please give long dramatic soliloquies about why your current state (or the state you plan on rage-moving to) is sooooo much better.

Troll Theater
Do you have multiple puppet accounts? Do you like to stir the pot? Or talk incessantly about Blue Laws? Or be secretly/anonymously racist? This is the place for you! Post your inconceivably dumb/nonsensical/racist questions and rants/raves here and sit back in your wooden swivel chair, in the ominous shadow of a single naked light bulb hanging from the ceiling, lace your fingers behind your head, and laugh maniacally like a cartoon villain, as you get all the peanut gallery a tittering.

Dear Marc Paolella
Where has this guy been? I haven't seen him around lately. Maybe we should give him his own column to entice him back. If you want to get unsolicited marriage/divorce and child rearing advice from an unmarried, childless real estate agent, post here. He will also probably give you religious/spiritual counsel, and medical advice.

CaptainNJ Corner
This is where you go to pointlessly argue in circles with CaptainNJ about his Libertarianism.
Docendo discimus's posts are always well-written, and frequently humorous, but she has truly outdone herself!
Five stars!

I wonder if it's available at ShopRite.

Eventually, her US doctors were able to cure her, but her frequent diarrhea for several weeks caused her to lose about 70 lbs.
I know someone who had that problem. She was an Army medic and dined at a local establishment while deployed. It took many months to eradicate the beasties.

Yes, I literally laughed out loud at that post. There is one more I would add to the list: the "Where should I live post". You know how that goes: I have a 250K budget and I'm looking for a house with a 30 minute door to door commute to NYC, walkable downtown, and excellent schools. This is usually met with responses like "You're 50 years too late"

Yes, well done, and I assumed Dd was male. Not sure why.

"You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Docendo discimus again."

UNFAIR!

Classic example of what is wrong with OP’s question...

OP asks why don’t JC, Newark, and Hoboken have their own sub forums?

Someone posts about relocation. They are working in NYC and don’t know anything about NJ but have decided they want to live in NJ. Well...Newark, JC, and Hoboken are all viable options depending on the person’s needs, so would they really have to post the same question in all three sub forums? It’s much more efficient to just have one.

No need for location subforums but the topic ones suggested above are spot-on! Might I also suggest a "Counting with Potanta" subforum where we can keep track of the victims mowed down by his driving, the number of creeps who stare at him as he does 25 point K-turns pulling out of his spot at the Livingston Mall where millennials are forced to work as indentured servants and the number of baseless statements about young New Jerseyans while whining about the cost of living here and how he can't wait to graduate and move west? It would make a great drinking game, too.
