Yes, I'd be curious, because New Orleans in particular seems like a pretty dangerous place. I like the culture there though. If the crime was under control, and the economy better, it would be by far the best city in the south.

Because NYC does absolutely nothing for me whatsoever. The other reason would be St Louis and New Orleans are not overpopulated.

I wouldn't call it overpopulated. It seems fine to me.

We have different opinions on that matter than.

Clearly we do, but I live in a country that everyone thinks is overpopulated, so there you go.

Cheers for the heads-up.

It's become evident to me quite quickly.

Translation- SE9's rampant homerism is challenged by someone, therefore SE9 claims everyone else is biased, and actual facts are irrelevent.

Sorry, but just how certain are you that you speak for "everyone else"?

All I know is that SE9 spouted a bunch of idiotic lies, and then claimed that anyone who disagrees "hates London". If you personally choose to believe that nonsense, that's certainly your prerogative.

My sense is that most people believe in official govt. statistics moreso than biased internet posters claiming that people choose cities based on public squares or trolley systems or outdoor cafes instead of based on things like jobs, economy, safety, family, quality of life, etc.

It would help if you don't misrepresent what other people say.

I understand that I'm far from the first person to note that you often read far too much into other people's comments - such as assuming they mean something else aside from their explicit claims.
