  1. I love these guys who claim the high-road. Your very name is a troll. For real???!!! See the last post in the "Comparing Orlando" section. In a single post, I was called . . . Humorless Arrogant Jugdmental Self-important d-bag. I consider each one a personal attack. Do you? Do you have any plan to handle it? I like to bring it up everyone JFW criticizes me. He thinks he is model of reasonableness.
  2. I have sent you multiple posts in which people have called me a douche bag or troll. Some people have told me that, if I were a "good parent", I would move from the area. Other have told me that they don't even believe I live here. All of that for giving my honest opinion on things. How is that acceptable? I can say definitely . . . the people on this website have no interest in different opinions. If it's not mindless cheerleading, they don't tolerant it. Period. I have (and you) ) have repeatedly asked that they simply IGNORE me. They'd rather argue though. I've blocked several people myself.
  3. I have made my opinion rather well known. Either you and this website protect differing opinions, or you don't. If you want to get rid of me, just do it. But don't play this game where you pretend to be against intolerance. You are right. The personal attacks are getting very old.
  4. Anyone know what happened to the HostDime HQ in Eatonville? It's been stalled for a long while. But I don't even see signs there anymore. Did they pull the plug? It would have been great addition to that underdeveloped area, with tons of visibility.
  5. I've got an idea that's completely out-of-the-box for this group. Why don't we let people post whatever the hell they want? It's sickening a handful of people think they control this website. They determine what's good for it, as if they're guardians who protect it from the evils of differing opinions. . My opinion - and yours -is just as valid as their's. I make no attempt to stop them for saying whatever they want. Yet they think they can stop me from expressing my legit opinions. In my mind, the only thing wrong with this site is that a handful of people have hijacked it. This is a public forum. Treat it like one.
  6. Orlando's total residential real-estate is valued at an estimated $178 billion. That value is equivalent to the entire GDP of Qatar. https://www.lendingtree.com/home/most-valuable-cities/
  7. Or you can block me. I blocked 4 people yesterday. It's not hard. It really isn't. Take responsibility for yourself. Any by the way, there are literally hundreds of names on this site that are no longer active. Is that my fault too? Start your own website. That makes sense.
  8. Looks like the Treasure Coast will get a Brightline stop. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mypalmbeachpost.com/business/brightline-considers-adding-treasure-coast-stop/uYYTjEw1dxa0yXKgW18sjI/amp.html
  9. "Contributors We Miss": 339 views on 31 posts over 1/2 day = 11 views per post My last post on "Cool Things in Other Cities" = 33 views in 2 hours People obviously hate reading my stuff. And everyone has clearly rushed to block me. LOL. Some people truly think they own this website and speak for other people. Joke's on you.
  10. Not such much "cool", but definitely interesting. The Tower of David - the 45 story unfinished tower in Venezuela that became a famous "vertical slum" - was recently damaged in an earthquake. Its top 5 floors have bent to a 25 degree angle and may fall. (The pic is old and doesn't show the damage).
  11. I see you guys are still posting stuff. I can't read it, but I am certain you are not blocking me. Because you (1) are too damn interested in what I say and (2) know I am right. I dare you to block me.
  12. Spenser, you've had a million chances to Ignore me. But you never did. I just blocked you. I highly recommend you block me as well. I will miss your 80-90 posts each day about above how "perfect" Orlando is. Those are my favorites.
  13. Since JFW wouldn't take my advice or the advice of the moderator, I have blocked him. It was quite easy. Whoever Ivanhoe is (I'm pretty sure its JFW under another account), I have blocked you as well. Your arguments bore me. Learn to accept other viewpoints.
  14. I was very clearly referring to the website, not the city. The website is a kiss-ass, PR-job for the city. Rah rah rah. It's pep rally. A mindless exercise in civic boosterism. There is no objectively. Again, I am talking about the freaking website. If someone doesn't want to hear both sides of the story (about the city, on this website), kindly hit IGNORE. (can I spell this out more clearly?) Even the moderator asked JFW to IGNORE me yesterday. He absolutely refuses. He'd rather have the same argument over and over again. This is really boring me to tears. To anyone who doesn't like me . . . here is your reckoning. Ignore me now or shut up. Take it or leave it. I don't care one way or the other. This is really getting old.
  15. Preach on about tact, JFW. (You're really making this too easy. And someone said that I have no self-awareness!!!)
  16. I been rather complimentary to Disney this week. I am really proud of its decision. I've explained that many people nationwide are seriously underestimating our skyline/urban core (based on the skyline survey in Ranker) I've commended Orlando for being more visible and newsworthy than other cities (some much larger) this week. I've commented on how impressed I am with Rollins College I've commented on how nicely they have redeveloped the Oviedo Mall. I explained how much I love the Enzian and wish there was something similar downtown. I've explained how excited I WAS for a possible food hall at Ferg's. That was all this week. Sorry . . . but any appearance of negatively is in your head. I don't give just anything a free pass because it is in Orlando though. That is just sucking the city's ass. I think it's a shame some people have lost all sense of objectively. At the same time they are refusing to tolerate other opinions, they are blaming me for being intolerant. It's ridiculous.
  17. Spenser and Hank are right. If you prefer to live in your own kiss-ass rah-rah-Orlando world, use Ignore liberally. I, for one, resent one-sided cheerleading. I need to know both sides of any story. Others apparently don't. This website is like reading a bad Chamber of Commerce press release. If you can't be real, hit Ignore.
  18. I'm just going to post this anytime JFW tries to take the high-road. He apparently needs a reminder of how he speaks about other people, while criticizing me. Preach on, JFW!
  19. The News Junkie is reporting Ferg's will be turned into an Olive Garden. The owners are apparently on a 3-4 year timeline. I don't know how true this is, or where he got the news. If true, I couldn't imagine a worse idea. The space should be used for something truly unique. The owners instead chose the most generic option possible. Ugh.
  20. Just how much Disney moved during contract negotiations: Its first contract offer was for $0.50 more per hour. The new contract is a HUGE concession on Disney's part. The company deserves credit. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vice.com/amp/en_us/article/xwma3q/when-working-in-disney-world-means-being-stuck-living-in-a-cheap-motel
  21. You missed my blistering, offensive, highly-inappropriate comments about population growth rates. They were truly awful. Be glad you blocked me.
  22. This is really getting tedious. My comments about percentages were purely mathematical. Any city with a lower baseline population would have an easier time increasing its growth percentage than a city with a larger baseline population. So yes, Nashville can increase its population. growth much easier than NYC. Or Tampa compares to LA. Having said that, I will agree for about the 4th or 5th time that Orlando is rapidly growing. That is plenty obvious. Aent said Orlando is a top 10 city based on raw population increase. He seems like a smart guy. I have no reason to not believe him. Anecdotally, I do know a lot of people unhappy here. I know others concerned about the quality of growth here. (I am one myself). I could personally care less how mush it's growing. I am more concerned if the city provides economic opportunity ito inprove its large working class. Other cities have become huge centers of wealth.
  23. We are again falling for the fallacy of percentages. It is much easier to increase percentages on smaller base numbers. We've talked about this before. In this case, Atlanta's base-number population is almost 3.5 million more people than Orlando's. Of course our growth percentage is better. No one has ever doubted that Orlando is growing. I have spoken to many people who were enticed to move down here by Disney and the weather. They thought their lives would be fairy tales. Now they regret it. It's more common than you probably think. But you are right, a lot of people do move here. As pointed out, our collective futures are best demonstrated by new bundt-cake stores. Bundt cakes = Prosperity
  24. I am so happy for the Disney workers. They work hard and deserve all they can get. From Orlando's standpoint, this will provide a nice boost to local economic development. The wages be recirculated locally, rather than sent back directly to home-office. There is much work to still be done. But this is a great day for Orlandoans (assuming everything is finalized).
