Интересно, у вас всегда так "чисто" (я про мусор, если что) на путях? Прямо настоящая помойка какая-то...

I am an active mod and the moderator for this section of the site. Unfortunately I am also a very busy person who moderates two other sections so I do my best in my spare time to moderate this forum (and delete the prodigious amounts of spam that get posted here).

If you do have any complaints or comments, just message me. That goes for everyone.

Basically this woman is asking why it is so "clean" on the tracks, and that it actually looks like a garbage dump on the tracks.

This is in a long series of comments we see every 20 posts or so about why is the subway so dirty, why can't they wash the walls, I had a very nice trip to NYC but I couldn't stand the subway bla bla bla...

Yeah, why is the NYC subway so dirty? I know it's old but you can paint over graffiti just like they did with the rolling stock. The city's image among visitors would improve a lot if they had a clean, QUIET metro.

The post literally above yours says states we see this same tired question every 20 comments or so, look through the thread before asking an incredibly tired question. I'll even give you a hint, page 71.

You can go to hell. How about you voluntarily give up some of your pay and benefits to help your employer. It's easy to tell other people to reduce their standard of living. How about you do the same?

In fact, all the settings should display a different number of posts, so that your page is another 71 maybe 50.

This is clearly a thread with a lot of post like this. I'm not gonna be in the discussion about it, but I would like to say that there is something to it(so many people can't be wrong). Instead of answering the question in an objective way, I think a lot of the answers is somewhat rude and just in someway dismissal.

You would have a point if you were on the Russian forum. Sadly, you are on the international forum, where users are obliged to use English.

Vartal can troll in any language she chooses. Let's just ignore her.

Anyway, this past weekend there was track repair at the Bay Parkway station on the D train in Brooklyn.

They did work on track and switches.

The subway runs above 86th Street in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn.

I've been searching desperately for dedicated threads to the 7th Ave expansion and the 2nd Ave Subways...I've had no luck.

Do they exist?

There's no need to get so desperate about this.

There's nothing here on SSC but check these out:

So what? Where is it written that I owe? And if I do not know English, what now? Here I am also obliged to write in English, according to your logic?

Vartal: Firstly, I am sorry but you do have to speak English on the international sections of the forum - this is the rule. That doesn't mean you should be attacked for your posts though.

Just because someone doesn't speak English and offers their opinion it doesn't mean they are trolling. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and if you can disprove it with fact, that's all well. Regular posters in this thread cannot expect occasional writers to read the whole thread so if comments are made multiple times then this is just how it is. Remain civil please.
