Portland is the most populous town in two states, but the capital of neither. #TriviaAnswers

ESSENTIALS polls taking up half of my unread posts, especially since ESSENTIALS is in all caps and comes across as someone yelling that these films are essential when I just wanna casually catch up with some films and man it would sure be nice if we didn't use all caps because isn't it annoying?

ESSENTIALS!

I personally like the all caps ESSENTIALS. It's useful for spotting those polls at a glance, and they're among the better polls, for my money.

I think, echoing MartinTeller's post in another thread, our signal-to-noise ratio is a bit off lately, but I prefer the occasional bursts of clutter to prolonged silence, so I'm wary about trying to 'fix' that.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I believe the big two do (Oregon and Maine). Can guarantee Portland, North Dakota does not.

Portland, Ohio (unincorporated) is on the Ohio River.

Seriously though, guys, stop, there are other names.

You mean names like Ogdenville and North Haverbrook?

I laughed so much at this. :))
