This comment is so boorish and ignorant it really stands out.  First off, I know a few brilliant farmers.  They could easily have been engineers, doctors, lawyers, academics, but their hearts are with the land or with the family farm. 

Second, the notion that "great minds" necessarily leave rural areas?  That's just ... I don't even know what to do with that.  FWIW I live in a major city, so I'm not objecting to this as a personal slight.  I will observe that my fair city has no shortage of racists or dumbasses - that's not limited to the sticks by any means.

I'd bet a fair sum that you would never post such a prejudiced statement about a racial minority group.  But somehow if it's people who live in rural areas it's OK? 

None of this is to say that "farmersonly" might not be a coded dating environment.  I've not heard of it until this thread.  But maybe some of us city mice need to get over ourselves.

To take it a step further, you'd only want to put the dumb (as opposed to simply uneducated) inner city kids out to the country.  Otherwise the smart transplants would just leave as soon as they were old enough, because that's what smart people do. 

Which explains why the people in large cities are so uniformly dang brilliant!

Rereading my second comment, I actually feel bad. I really don't want to pile on something that he's given a pretty hard time about in tons of threads any time that he posts anything when it comes to the multiple account thing, and I feel like I may have crossed a line. At the end of the day, he's still a person, and that always needs to be kept in mind. From everything that I've seen, Wolverine Devotee seems like a good and nice person, I greatly appreciate the enthusiasm that he brings, and think that he gets some undue venom sent his way sometimes.

I personally apologize to WD if I crossed a line for you, and I promise that I didn't mean anything by it. I genuinely hope that he finds peace, happiness, and fulfillment in life, whatever that means from his perspective.

Nah, I don't post nearly enough for that.

It's just that I've made an effort to be much nicer as a person, and WD seems to take this site extremely seriously and probably personally, and I didn't want to say something that he'd take personally and feel bad about with any of my posts.

I'm sure he has enough problems in his life, and doesn't need a random schmuck like me to pile on and make him feel bad about something.

I'm guessing there is a check one: "Saban" or "Satan" box depending on where you fall with the Bama/auburn rivarly.

also a place to donate $1 to stop Michigan from hosting satellite camps in the south...
