I appreciate the compliment, but at least this site is alive and kickin'. Topix Albany is SO boring by comparison that its most interesting person is a woman Satanist who calls herself PaganBirdKeeper666!I had to laugh when I saw the original post from one of the relatively few normal and seemingly decent humans on this cesspool of a board proposed a get together. Are you crazy?? This is the worst group of sociopath, racist, idiotic, psychotic, vicious people in WNY outside of prison. Why not meet at the Buffalo Sewage Treatment Plant?
Buffalonians are unique in character to the point where it persists even after they move away and settle elsewhere. I often attribute my "cafeteria conservatism" for instance (something I consider virtuous, not bad) to the fact that I was raised in Buffalo at the particular time period that I was, and otherwise might have become a toe-the-line-on-every-topic conservative (or liberal) if it had been otherwise.
