No, you just implied it.

Its a joke. You understood it. Beach understood it. I'm assuming r6 even understood it, but chose to get all up in arms about it.
Yes, I know it was a joke.

However, anyone who has lived in the area for an extended period of time and has a working knowledge of philly suburbs (this includes you) would easily agree that there are far more amenable, safer, cheaper, and convenient suburban locales for a law student (or anyone else for that matter) to live in these days.
I agree there are better nearby suburbs, but I disagree that there's a cheaper nearby suburb that fits that description. Marple and Springfield are of a similar cost and quality. The only suburbs significantly cheaper than Havertown that are convenient to Penn/Villanova are in worse shape.

If someone feels the need to offer a differing opinion on Havertown, go right ahead. However, if you wanna feign righteous indignation and play PC police on TLS (especially when its clear you understand the joke and are subconsciously applying the very same humorous stereotypes I hinted at) that's just dumb. Everyone should just keep it up though, TLS arguments are quite useful to the wider community (see picture below for visual representation).
I'm not mad... at all. I was actually trying to help you. I will honestly say that at my elite public high school, which had its fair share of snobbery, people did not make Havertown jokes. They mostly shitted on Narberth and Ardmore. Occasionally Upper Darby. For me, the Havertown thing came out of complete left field.
