Mods, will you please look into this? I have already reported the attack.


Be civil, no personal attacks, flaming, or insults. We may attack ideas (politely) but we do not attack the speaker of the idea. Be careful with your words, there is a point where being direct crosses a line into blunt, in-your-face hostility. Please, report bad posts instead of engaging in flame wars on the boards. Insulting another member or a moderator will not be tolerated anywhere on this website. This includes Direct Messages and Reputation Comments.

This is sort of what I was thinking. I've always liked the idea of living within walking distance of a Metro-North or LIRR station in the suburbs and working within walking distance of Penn Sta or GCT.

However I'm not sure the OP works near a LIRR station now.

People who are not sure of themselves need to have their own choices validated as much as possible.

Perhaps

However, those validations should be stated in an appropriate and civil manner here on the City-Data forums.

These are the rules that we agreed to.

This isn't what it's about for me. I have no problem with people wanting to leave NY if it's not right for them. I may do it myself one day. I do have a problem with OP's original post where she trashes an entire borough by saying she (as a person who hardly makes enough to scrape by) would not even deign to live anywhere in that entire borough even if the rent were free!

That's rude. There are plenty of ways of stating you don't want to live in NY any more and to ask for advice, but to start off a thread with something that is rude like that... well it's possible it could inspire people not to be that nice in return.

So my advice: if you want a nice discussion of your issues (where to live next when you leave NY) then don't start off trashing a borough where probably 20% of the forum members reside.

It really has nothing to do with people "who are not sure of themselves." It has to do with OP not having the simple decency to starting a thread asking her question in a manner that doesn't include trashing a borough where many people here live.

Nassau county is expensive and apartment buildings are not that plentiful and available. Besides no one moves to LI if they're looking for lower rent. Where I lived the street often flooded during a full moon, heavy rain, or when there was a storm. When Sandy came, the entire neighborhood was underwater. Water covered the entire first floor of the homes on my block. The house was severely damage and out of commission for months. It's finally been repaired but I can't afford to move back especially knowing how vulnerable my block is to flooding.

The mature thing to do if you disagree with someone's else opinion is to: ignore them or give your counter-opinion and go on your way. Threatening or suggesting that you want to physically hurt someone because you don't agree with them on a message board is way over the top and uncalled for. No excuses.
