Northern New England should not be lumped in with Boston. It’s nearly too much having Portland, ME lumped in with Northern New England (honestly, I’d argue that Portland and Boston need their own boards, and all the rest of Northern New England should be together.)
I’m guessing that there are a lot of other regional boards that this is true for. Maybe if we collected all the discussion about these categories together that might be of some help for the site folks.
(I did do a basic search to see if this had been addressed on a broad spectrum and only ran into threads about specific regions. Always keeping in mind that I only just signed up for this site today )
