Welcome to Cookeville! It's a great town with great people. Unfortunately, you won't see many of them here on toxic, I mean topic.net . Rather, you should check out the Cookeville room at city-data, where the forums are heavily monitored so that there's no profanity, no trolling, etc:

Ouch welcome to town... Make yourself at home... IDK why anyone would move here... This town sucks royally. Professeur is right you won't find many of these great folks on here cause they're simply not tech savvy... Sure city data's great with its censorship.... So is topix.... The only thing that's really toxic in this town is the corruption and meth heads that are cooking all over town but hey that's why they call it Cookeville....

It's Crookville. Prepare yourself. They HATE anyone that isn't a Tennessee native. Be prepared to get told to "Go back to where you came from" by the locals. Anyone with an education or brains is considered to be a mortal threat.

I've lived here my whole life. There are plenty of pros and a fair share of cons. That's anywhere you live though. Not everyone is an ignorant redneck or doper. There are people you gotta take with a grain of salt. There's also some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I've always lived in the "sticks," and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's peaceful, no glaring street lights all night, and the beautiful sounds of crickets, frogs, and howling coyotes. May I ask what part of Cookeville you now reside?

I lived there all my life and moved away earlier this fall. The truth? The ONLY things I miss are my mom's cooking and Rib City. I moved two states away to a much larger city and am glad I did.

Some people like the small town thing. Some don't. I'm a part of the don't group.

If you like small town living, Cookeville is a great place to live. If you go to church, don't get into any trouble and don't mooch off the system, you'll do great. You will earn respect.

But if you're move there was for business reasons, I advise you to leave soon. The growth there has become stagnant due to bad decisions from politicians in office in the 90s and onwards. If you decide to stay, I hope your business will stand the test of time.

Best wishes.
