      rather than blanket general bagging of the place, be specific. Adelaide is not going to suit everyone who comes, but instead of stating what other people have said and laughed at say the exact things that are wrong for you. This way people who are like you and in your situation may take into account and validate your experiences.

      For example things could be mentioned like...
      Missing family
      Too cold, you personally want somewhere warmer.
      Your line of work is difficult to get into.
      You need to spend money updating qualifications.
      The things you like to do are not readily available here.
      Your wife/ husband hates it and you value their view.

      Forums such as these are there to voice opinions and also to provide advice to those following in your footsteps. Scaremongering without specifics opens it up to hurt feelings, auto defence mechanisms and general slagging matches.

      So anyone who wants to voice their unhappiness with the place should do it in a constructive way.
      Gold star and top marks for your post

      An awful lot of people are very happy here and to be honest get fed up of folk bagging Adelaide and South Australia.:)

      Well Kate, I think it's you being 'charming'! If someone came to your house and started slagging the place off, I think you'd be perfectly justfied in showing them the door!

      I would never dream of bullying anyone and am extremely offended that you accuse me of it - how dare you assume that your opinion and only yours is the right one!! I have helped many people out with informed information on this site and others and you are totally out of order with your accusations.

      However, you are perfectly welcome to wallow in your dissatisfaction and discontent, and life is too short to try and help people who don't want help, so I won't be posting on this site any more. No wonder some people get the sobriquet "Whingeing Poms"!
