Foursquare checks in with the rudest cities in the world
Tuesday 01 March 2011
Think the people in your city are foul-mouthed and rude? Location-based social network foursquare has scoured the globe to pinpoint the locations in which its members are the rudest.
UK's Manchester tops the list of foursquare places with the highest percentage of tips containing curse words. El Paso in Texas, USA, is second on the list.
"Its good to see that the Mancunians truly are not only the rudest people in the UK, but the rudest people globally, only El Paso comes close," said foursquare in a February 28 post on its engineering blog.
Cities in the US dominate the list with Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Bloomington, Indiana; Riverside, California; Tempe, Arizona; Scottsdale, Arizona; Portland, Oregon; Venice, California; and Orange California all making it among the top 10 rudest cities in the world.
Melbourne, Australia is the only other non-US city to make it into the list, however, foursquare didn't evaluate the rudeness of non-English speaking countries.
