Fortunately, there are only a few of these troublemakers on these forums and they generally get called out for it by the rest of us. I sometimes let it get to me when they say ignorant things like I did on here but generally I am more mature than that.

People should just accept constructive criticisms of other cities but at the same time not say things on purpose to start trouble
