Did you guys ever stop to think this forum does not truly represent Boston at all? I rarely post but often times read the messages here. Many of the people here aren't even from Boston. I won't even get into the fact all you talk about is your white upper-class yuppy issues.

It's never really claimed to represent only Boston. We also have people here who live in Somerville, Arlington, Chelsea, Billerica, Malden, Quincy, Newton, and other nearby towns and cities.

your comment perhaps would have more merit for me if you didn't call it "rediculous".

Well, instead of just joining the cavalcade of kvetchers, what's on *your* mind? What are non-white lower-class non-yuppies talking about these days?

Just sign me,

I do not live in Boston. i don't live far; and I do visit on a regular basis. However, i am so not upper-class that it's not even funny. I am white. I'm concerned that I might be a yuppie. How about you?

Don't yuppies have to have money, though? Er, not to say you're broke or anything, but...yeah. Hi.

Anyway, I'm not from Boston, but I intend to move there soon, hence the fact that I like to hang out here. I'm white, not upper class (for example, I bought nobody diamonds or SUVs for Christmas this year), and I don't think I'm a yuppie...the "urban" part of that definition doesn't quite apply.

Also, I don't know where it says that this forum is supposed to be the end-all, be-all of Boston sites. You do, as Adam said, have the power to introduce whatever topics you please. I, for one, am intrigued.

Same difference, I'm still a bigger Red Sox fan than ANYONE here...

I am so Bostonian that, everytime I talk, I don't even pronounce my vowels or r's .....

Ask me another question...I'll answer it...

Except Bostonians say "Brender."

Honestly, I'm from IOWA, and I know that. And that Babe Ruth was the Bambino, not "The Babe."

What ever made you imagine it claimed to?

For that matter, are YOU claiming to represent Boston?

What does "represent" mean anyway? If you're referring to being a powerful force in the city then yeah, the white yuppies wield enormous influence. If it's simple demographics; racial, social, cultural, economic, etc. then you're chasing a phantom. Especially considering the self-selection that goes into who posts here.

So, does the Boston Globe "represent" Boston? Fox News? The Hoodsies hanging out at Wollaston T? The tourism agencies? Christopher Lydon or David Brudnoy (RIP)? The sports teams? What's-his-name getting beaten with the American Flag in the busing riot at Gov't Center?

Your pique comes through - your point does not.
