What's it called when people screw up the place they live and bring their screwed up ideas with them when they move?

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

At your (my) age? Be real ;)Mostly correct. Except for the fee, there was never one, and the mailing list WAS state of the art AT THAT TIME! It's just that some/many didn't like the format of a mailing list. Related, mailing lists still remain cool for 10-50 people. Unruly in excess of 100 users... 100 ACTIVE users. We (the official cog) passed 100 email users around 1996Not gonna go there, at least in an public post.

Thanks Rick.
I thought you had to be a COG Member to be on the List Server or the first Forum.
My intention was to try to determine when Forum Subscribers were added to the forum.

Ride safe, Ted

Forum Subscribers were added to the COG forum about 3 years ago. I wondered then why the segregation but it seems that they want to monetise the forum. If it'd been me I would have added adverts for Forum Subscribers but it seems we're not wanted, so I left. Their loss. 😁

That's a good question. I sort of searched but I can't find a word for that. The closest I've come up with is missionarism.
However that wouldn't exactly explain phenomena like snowbirds moving to Arizona and trying to grow perfect bluegrass lawns in 110+
degree heat....so is there a word for that: "when people screw up the place they live and bring their screwed up ideas with them when they move"?

It has a bunch of names:

Colonialism
Socialism / Communism (they really wanted to export that one)
Imperialism
Exploration (not to be confused with colonialism, which is what follows exploration about ten years later)
And universally it is known as foreign 'help' and / or 'aid'.

Lots o' Americans recognize it as Califoniarizoniamism, New York New Hampshire combinations and so forth. It is what happens when people find they live in a place that sucks, move over a bit and start spreading the thing that caused the 'suck' in the first place around the new place. On a color chart it can be seen as the coastal blue leaking into the internal red but that might be taken as a political view so I will not mention it.

 ;) ;D

Back in the mid '90s, the Mrs and I are looking over the local Fort Worth real estate market seeking a larger house. She complains that "All the damn yankees are moving down here and driving up all the prices."
I looked at her and said " You do realize that you just said that to a guy from Chicago that moved down here just to marry you, right?"
She looked at me as though I was an idiot and replied "Oh you don't count, you don't have any money.::)

my last name in German is direct translated to 'Hare' , so there's a tie in there.  That movie is hilarious as well.   ;D
