    my wife, a cantonese chinese woman, who came on a boat from hong kong to san francisco, a few , many few years ago...recently has returned to the city of her second childhood.
    $14.00 for chow mein out side of richmond...pretty far from downtown 'frisco.

    about fifteen years ago i was in south san francisco and i walked into a barber shop....i walked out paying $15.00 for a simple men's haircut.

    there is a problem here.

    san francisco, is the most expensive city west of the rocky mountians.

    why is this so ? ..

    if you travel far enough west of the rockies you will eventually be east of the rockies where you will find, I think, a more expensive city

    this is the reason for my post.

    1. to try to move the general forum to a true general forum.

    2. to respond in a unkind manner to the first reply.

    and to show why the general forum is no longer the place it used to be.
    ______________________________

    remedy:

    non-subcribers, if i understand the current rules, are limited to three posts a day.

    may i suggest, that subsribers ( grampy bobby, sietse, my own various alias', and carrobie, et al, and such ilk, be limited to six posts a day.

    It begs the question

    What is a true general forum? Wouldn't it be for everything in general? How did it used to be? If it entails talking about the price of Chow Mein in San Francisco I doubt that there'd be a lot of interest in an international general forum.

    Regarding postings, I wasn't aware that non-subscribers were limited to 3 postings a day. Are you sure. I'm sure Robbie Carrobie when he wasn't a subscriber was still posting hundreds of posts a day. However I think that limiting non-subscribers postings is a good idea.

    Non subs are not limited to the amount of posts they make, but they are limited to the number of PMs they make.
