I don't get this... Apparently two of the larger states in the US are arbitrarily lumped togther on the home town forum. I imagine this is a reflection of the fact that the larger centers in NJ and NY are basically across the river from each other down in the NYC area. However, NJ is about as relevant as, say, Alaska or Arizona for every NY'er north of the Tappanzee Bridge, and I suspect that NJ residents really do not have much interest in whatever happens in Albany, Buffalo, or the Adirondack Park.

Given that much of the usual hometown forum stuff is legal (and therefor State dependent) can we get separate NJ and NY hometown forums?

A combined NY & NJ hometown board makes about as much sense as a San diego/Tijuana or maybe a NY/CT board.......

This topic comes up every once in a while.

My opinion, FWIW, is that I like having the combined board. I've had opportunities to meet many of the "NY crew". They are a great group. We all get along fairly well with the current set up. I don't see a need to change.

Just my .02.

It's easier to harass the NJ crew about their sucky gun laws. Of course that will all change when Spitzer moves into the NY Governors mansion in 2007. Then they can exact their revenge on us.

Yeah, we have sucky gun laws, but we have the BETTER gun ranges.

If we do split up in the future can we give Camden, Trenton, and Newark to NY as nice parting gifts?

Keep you friends close and your enemies closer.

ANy thought of a "NJ/SouthernNY and Islands" board with the "Upstate NY" split to its own board?

The NY NJ hometown forum is pretty dead anyway. Can you imagine if it was split up

The New York forum has gone down hill since the last NJ insurrection that resulted in spelling out "New Jersey" in the title.

The forum also hasn't been the same since Helldog was promoted to the level of his incompetence. He was supposed to ban me months ago but the old guy has even forgot about that.
