Freedom of speech means the government can't ban you from saying certain things. The fact that you haven't been arrested for your dishonest comments shows that your freedom of speech is being protected.

You're not being truthful at all.

You most certainly were banned, under multiple other screen names. Nice try, though.

If you do not want to read the truth do not read it! Yes our rent and insurances went up like crazy! Yes our neighbors in our complex were loud, rude and some didn't speak English! Yes there was times when commuting from Pinellas to Hillsborough it took two hours. Yes I witnessed with my own eyes car accidents and pedestrian accidents in the crazy traffic. Yes we seen a lot of our friends in the legal community move out as well the last year or so. Yes its very transient and changing but the growth in some of the growing areas such as Riverview and Valrico is causing problems and an increase of crime and it has!
Why would I make this up! We did not move to Tampa for us to spend thousand of dollars just to move, the place went to hell in a hand-basket and As far as Lexington no problems here so far.
Morton please respect peoples opinions because everyone has different experiences and different things they seen in the area or maybe you are the one that should be banned!
I'm sorry for you, too.

Please show me where I said you were banned? Or are you tipping your hand from prior experience?

Now you're making false accusations, and of course that's not protected speech.

Better get those glasses checked.

RM

The problem with reading apartment ratings online is that almost all of them are bad no matter what complex you look at. Three out of 5 stars is about the best you'll find for most places. So it's very hard to decide. If you make a decision based on ratings, you might end up not even moving anywhere. There just isn't anywhere good to live, or hardly, and that's basically just how it is. I find myself moving about once every 3 years on average because they play games and jack up the rent by big amounts so you're forced to move. I have yet to find a stable affordable apartment that isn't run by a greedy management company.

Very true and this is why i prefer to rent from INDIVIDUAL owners now. Always treating us fair and very little if any increase. As long as you're a great tenant I guess.

OP, I agree with Paradise Lost. The traffic is horrible here. And only going to get worse, as people keep moving here. Transportation Dept. can't keep up with road construction and repairs. I just hate the amount of people you have to deal with all day long! Cars, bikes, pedestrians, school busses, snowbirds, tourists... It's becoming hell on earth.

A lot of posters on here are in love with Florida. That's their choice, but it isn't a paradise. And your daughter will have to pay out of state tuition.
