If you're offended by it, then don't look at it. It doesn't single out a single group. This is how people stereotype different parts of the city whether you like it or not. Why not try to focus on why so many people think this way even if you disagree.
Who is offended?

I said it had a few errors nothing more or nothing less.

Yes, when combined with all your other SA chearleading on this forum.

Sorry the logic was lost on you. The point is, you ignore real problems the city has and instead of addressing the problems with a respectful debate, you repeatedly attack the individual posters and question their integrity or intelligence. Those are two attributes I am not sure you are qualified to judge.

It's not hatred it's more frustration with reading your posts. You are so predictable, it has become boring to read a thread that might have had an interesting discussion because I know you are going to come in and chase away most of the people participating with your aggressive demeanor and ill informed opinions.

I am sorry you don't comprehend the words I am using.

- Perpetual - means over and over again, I used this to describe your unending rants about how perfect the city of San Antonio is regardless of evidence to the contrary.

- Myopia - a form of near sightedness. It is often used to describe people that refuse to acknowledge reality and dismiss anything that doesn't fit into their unique view of the world. It is most often used to describe diehard sports fans that put their teams up on pedestals in spite of years of futility. I have actually been guilty of this myself. Regardless, it absolutely describes your view of San Antonio.

That is what a good presentation does. You start with a statement, reinforce that statement and close with the same statement.

There is nothing wrong about being proud of where you live but don't try to defend the city by ignoring the problems that we San Antonians do face as if they don't exist (or rarely exist).

I don't agree with everything that bspray says, but he is right on the dirty diaper problem.
What part of town?

I really only travel from the 1%'s area over to the "Seaworld" area then up to "rich Mexicans escaping kidnappings" and I occasionally make it out to the "money burner" part of town all while seeing no diapers...

I see diapers quite often at Crossroads Target parking lot by 410 and Fredericksburg near where I live, Wonderland Shopping mall parking lot, various parking lots along SW Military Dr. near where I work on the southside. About the only place I personally don't see diapers in lots is downtown really. I pretty much go all over San Antonio except for the far eastside as I have no reason to be there (no family, work or friends there).

It is funny because it is reasonably accurate, in spite of what people without a sense of humor think.

and now it all makes sense...

Since we all like seroytypes... all of those locations have a certain kind of "perspn" that frequents them.

Glad we can agree on something. I will just leave it at that.

Someone take note of the day and time. I have actually agreed with Neshomamench AND MajorMadMax in the same week. We may be closer to the apocalypse than we realize.

I enjoyed the map. I have often fantasized about living in SA and read the forum often. Mostly a happy group of people with positive things to say about their city.. I come for business often and stay in the same general area (a little north of hoodrats with jobs). I go walking for morning exercise and the area I walk through is full of chihuahuas. When this map was first posted I went to their website and looked at the maps for some of the other cities and Denver has a neighborhood labeled "loose chihuahuas". It made me laugh and feel cheated on SA's behalf that the neighborhood I like to walk through was not so designated.
