Have you ever been a member of this site or are you currently?
This site is trash. I joined a few months ago and really thought it was cool until I realized how much favoritism the moderators have. I gave an honest opinion about a city on the City vs City board and I got an infraction for "starting a fight" and "insulting" I also got infractions for calling someone a troll who was being a troll! I hate how some posters can get away with name calling and others can't. All the city/state forums are a big mess. People come in with only a few posts and just start bashing the city etirely and the people that live there. I hate how there are "star parties" for whenever people get stars. Finally, I hate how certain cities are overly praised(San Francisco, New York City, Seattle), and how other cities are constantly bashed (Los Angeles, Phoenix, Miami, Las Vegas) I have not been banned from this site as of yet, but I am done with that site. The site seems to be filled with 40+ year olds who sit on there a*ses all day and just bash entire. cities and regions. what are your experiences with the site?

Well, I must admit I am 40 plus, but have been banned for speaking my mind about certain political issues. It seems if you disagree with the popular opinion you receive an infraction.
There is a lot of president bashing but it's ok to post about Nazi's and the KKK and post photos of the confederate flag. Most of the people on that forum are cowards who would never voice their opinions in public, therefore they hide behind their puter and bash away.
Ugh! Not my kind of place.

Actually, in my opinion, City-Data is one of the best forums on the internet. The moderators are pretty fair, and the people are quite mature and very knowledgable about their cities and states.

I go on there every once in a while, as I am a member on several different sites.

Its hard to say what happened in your case, but you might just want to speak to the moderator in question. If that doesn't meet your expectation, then go to one of the administrators and see if they'll work with your situation, and try to resolve it.

Best of luck!

You just figured this out about City Data??
I did away with them two years ago and posted their true nature all over. Do the same, blight them on the internet. Back then, a foreigner group of Polish bought them. Of all things!

The worst offender is the moderator who goes by the name of Yac. I wonder if that is a reference to some Nordic god

Oh no!

A Yak is a long-haired bovine found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia, the Tibetan Plateau and as far north as Mongolia and Russia.

He's just one of the herd.

That is Yak, not Yac.

Yeah right! Finally discovered it?

Colt Carson...I guess you forgot(are getting senile?) when you were ZonyPony. I knew you would rear your ugly head again. How much does City-Data pay you to be a fanboy for City-Data, Tucson, Prescott, Aridzona, etc., etc., etc. Do you get paid per post, or per identity. If it's by identity, you must be rich by now.

Colt Carson (aka ZonyPony) you are a phony arse. You accuse others of having multiple identities, because that's what you are all about.

You, along with many of the moderators and long term posters, are some of the biggest trolls on the net.

Giddy up Colt Carson, ZonyPhonyBaloney, or whatever else you are calling yourself today.
