Good post, but if you left that area, why are you still on that forum? I would'nt look back, instead, I'd be posting on the forum where you are now happily living.
If people LIKE where they are living, good for them. They can only post of their own experience, which is positive for them. Not everyone can share the same negative opinion of an area that you might have and no one is at fault if they are happy there and you aren't.

I still live on long island, but in a different area of it. The people I'm talking about are a gang for one very overrated area. Long Island has a whole bunch of different areas, so people that are looking for a house on the island always get this town as a a response. When I would say to avoid the town at all costs, Id get a bitter response.

Oh, OK, gotcha! Yeah, I know exactly how you feel Razor. When newby's come on my hometown foru, Las Vegas, and me or someone else would give them a positive response, imagine being assaulted-attacked-ridiculed because I gave a positive review-which really, reflects my life and my view of Las Vegas. And I've lived for over 42 years and seen the good, the bad and the ugly.

Don't know why people have to attack others if they offer other info, such as other nice places to live (in your case other areas of Long Island). Cyber bullying is what it is. As you said, wherever they are recommending, you wouldn't want to live there, ha ha ha!

Keep the faith bro!

I posted there for several years, barely able to tolerate the quite obvious, arbitrary and capricious moderation.

I picked up the odd infraction here or there, which is only to be expected in a heated debate - but I could not help noticing that certain extreme right-wing posters were given a pass where anyone arguing with them was targeted for moderation.

I also know from discussing this with a mod (who asks not to be named) that moderation there is "reactive" and based on people complaining about others' posts.
So basically the place is moderated, indirectly, by whiners, complainers and thin-skinned wackos.

...to which the moderators seem quite sympathetic.

I'll not grace the place with my presence again. After getting the last infraction from caseyB for merely disagreeing with a right wing loonie poster, I asked them to ban me permanently, lest I suffer a moment of weakness and try to come back.

Thank God I am done with that shitty board.

Another thing: the Long Island forum moderators (though I've never been infracted) will go crazy about racism or curse words, but won't do a thing about sexism.

They are worse than Nazi Editors; they are North Korean editors. The big moderators, such as Yac, Marka, Markablue, and Linicx, as well as the owner and the administrator on the city-data forum all live right in North Korea. Rumors are; Yac and Marka work in North Korea's brutal gulags, and both the owner and the administrator of the city-data forum are likely close relatives of North Korea's late tyrant leader, Kim Jong-Il.

Additionally, the entire city-data forum itself, software, computers, cyber center and all, is based in North Korea, most likely in Pyongyang.

I love how certain people act like experts in the Employment Forum and insult all those looking for work or out of work. They gang up on certain posters and mods look away.

City Data Forum is a joke. I created an account. Used it. A guy started following me and contacting me outside of C-D.

I tried to close my C-D account. The directions say you can't. So I turned off all features associated with the account.

Opened a new account (so he wouldn't realize it was me and find out things about me like where I was going, etc).

Then I was flagged for having two accounts.

Seriously? I'd love to close that old account, yet they give you no option to do so.

I suppose I should just let a stalker continue to follow me and my posts, reading where I'll be moving to, places I'll be frequenting, because THAT'S safe.

Even if C-D makes this right, I will NOT be returning.

C-D, if you're reading this, you know what you can kiss.:D

"So basically the place is moderated, indirectly, by whiners, complainers and thin-skinned wackos.

...to which the moderators seem quite sympathetic."

While this is true to a greater or lesser extent, as a former shitty-data mod I can tell you that every state/city region has their own independent cliques, most revolving around friends and/or business relationships (e.g. AZ/Phoenix/Tuscon is run BY-and-FOR realtards, with some commentary by non-RE folk simply tolerated.)

There is also a wide variety of political/personal prejudices, and if you don't fit into THAT specific shitty-data forum's clique, you will be scapegoated and WATCHED by the herd, moderated (lol) without mercy - Count on it!

Considering the stated purpose of the "City Data Forums", the site is beyond a joke, it is totally and utterly disgraceful regarding out-of-control personal biases in moderation, and is nothing short of an virtual wasteland regarding usable/factual intel concerning plans for relocation, investment opportunities, et al.

IMO, IF you're SERIOUSLY looking for TRUSTWORTHY information concerning a given locale - i.e. actionable intel to base home/business/investment decisions - Do some comprehensive google searches for LOCAL forums in the specific areas you're interested in, and avoid shitty-data at all costs!

P.S. The mods on shitty-data are known to have multiple identities aka sock puppets, which is why you get the echo chamber effect, with the same opinions, basics personality types, and arguments day after day, without end.

Blatant narcissism disingenuously blended with nepotism/cronyism and tyranny...

I'm really baffled by this City-Data forum! I gave my honest opinion on a topic and was unreasonably attacked for no reason at all. What a sham of a place!

Is that forum full of trolls or what the h***? anyone moderating it?? hello? mods??

Oh well, guess not..

Perhaps someone needs to create another forum such as this that has actual moderators!!!

It is a sham. You can't give an honest opinion. A lot of people who post for example on the FL boards are realtors.

The BS they post...LOL. For example you don't need to use your A/C after Oct...HUH? It is only hot from May till October...LOL.

Honestly why lie about the weather when it can be verified on other sites.

The moderators are slanted and may even have a vested interest themselves in the real estate market.

Sigh, the city-data forum is more than a sham. The city-data forum is a North Korea based website that is based in North Korea, which as many people know, is the world's worst run and most totalitarian country. I even once created a temporary account and as I was posting in the "About the forum" section about how wrong Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il are about true philosophy, I was banned so fast my head spun like a top.

I was a member of city-data for just a few days and got banned as a troll with zero chance of the ban being lifted at any point in the future. I never posted anything inappropriate or any more confrontational than other posts I saw. In fact I was more polite and fair than many of them. For the life of me I can't understand why I was banned for life without a warning or any deletions of my posts prior. I'm a long standing member of other forums and have never had problems or was accused of being a troll. Looks like most comments here are correct. City-Data sucks!

The more I think about all this, in as much that my posts were mostly on CDs Politics and Controversies board, tagging me as a troll is ridiculous particularly on there. There's a very fine line between what would technically be called trolling by definition and not. The nature of most exchanges on that board could be regarded as provoking emotional responses from other posters given the subject material. And I don't necessarily like to engage with those who for all practical purposes act like trolls. Often a troll is subjectively in the eye of the beholder. And much of the traffic there relies upon a certain amount of emotional driven responses. It just makes no sense that I was permanently banned so early on without the slightest hint of an initial warning from a moderator. Spells a very clicky community who acts just like an imperialist North Korean regime.

I went to City Data forum for relocating info for las Vegas and was told by a poster over and over again that if I want to move there I need to have a 12 gauge shotgun and a massive house alarm.

And anybody who offered a different opinion was attacked!

that same poster went on to tell someone else who had posted about moving to Vegas that there was no one who goes to Ivy league schools from Vegas and that the OP should not move there because of that. And they are arguing on there with anyone who disagrees with them!

WTF?????

Nazi disgruntled posters on there that's for sure. I'd say keep away from that forum!!!!!!! Not enough moderation of the disgruntled down on their luck posters on there
