Ha I think Godwin's law has been invoked, Lol! Just before someone closes this thread down as a result I'd like to make a few points...
Forum sites are a place for robust discussion of different points of view. If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.
The OP asked a question that has generated that discussion so I reckon it has done its job.
Personal attacks reflect badly only on those who make them.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion whether you agree with it or not.
All of our experiences of migration are different but are equally valid. What we shouldn't do is generalise them to imply that only we know 'the truth'.
Those of us who have been here (both in Adelaide or on this forum) for a while have experience of the labour market and the way things work here that has shaped our opinions. If we are more guarded about how great things are here it is as a result of that experience. We no longer preach with the fervour of the recently converted.
Oh, and if a simple question about what job you're doing has offended you so much and prompted such a response, then you might seriously want to consider getting out more.
I think we all can appreciate that Kris, but if you post on a public forum you have to accept that not everyone is going to stroke you. No one wants to trample on anyone's dreams but migrating is too hard and expensive these days to get wrong because you have rose coloured specs on.
For those of you contemplating the pros and cons of giving it a go in Adelaide as a result of this thread. You should take a moment to consider this great philosophical quote
"Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic"
Dolly Parton (1987)

I've enjoyed reading this thread but it does seem to have reached that point when it's simply going round in circles.
I think that if a thread like this, on its own, is enough to make people ditch their plans to migrate, then they would never have made it anyway.
But mainly, I feel that people should chillax a bit.
