Right, but for example I live closer to Columbus, and even Cincinnati, OH than I do to Philadelphia, PA. And Buffalo, and Rochester, and Syracuse, NY, too. Toledo. Heck, I almost live closer to Chicago than Philadelphia.
Breaking things down by states doesn't work very well, and even if we did, we'd have 50 little forums. Then bigger states need more forums so now we're at 80 or so, and we still haven't gotten anything outside of the United States, and people STILL have to pay attention to multiple regions.
Turns out it's much easier to create them "on the fly" with Groups, or just ask that people pay attention to thread titles or use the search fields. I think you're starting to see what I mean by how it's not terribly feasible. There are likely more golfers than fans of AR-15s. :)
