It's simple really ... that's not actually a proposal but since it's in the proposals section , people assume (rightly) that it IS actually the proposal . Don't get mad at them , get mad at the person who thought that this was a proposal when it was actually just an announcement that something WOULD BE proposed .

So they go to the proposals section , see what they (rightly) assume to be a proposal and then comment on it . If they're stupid for understanding this basic concept , then doesn't that make the people who considered this a proposal even more stupid ?

In other words , if it's not a proposal , don't get mad at people for commenting on it , get mad at the person who started the thread .

The enlarged font size would not matter if the forumers were retarded or illiterate so I'm confused as to the meaning of it. I'm assuming you were just trying to get some attention as if you've spent any time on SSC, you'll notice 80% of the threads are filled with casual fluff. That is part of the site and has always been. You can't have a successful thread without the dull, ignorant comments that you are bashing on because then the thread would die.That is also a main reason SSC is so fun, because we don't just drone on about the cladding and curtain walls for 45 pages. Sometimes it's those "lame" opinions that make the threads so lively. And hell if that brings publicity to a project all the better, no? And why bring "goddamn" into this thread? As if the tower weren't sacrilegious enough, you had to bring in saying god's name in vain. Now we have a truly sinful thread about an ugly conceptual rendering that looks vaguely like the Sears Tower. Sigh.

What a great way to argue against pointless comments, by posting one yourself! The only thing more annoying than someone posting about a concept is someone who brings religion into a thread.

I call that something that somebody wants but isn't real yet . What do you call it when you want something that isn't real yet ? The best word would be "dream".
A proposal would involve a finished design . THIS apparently does not include that which , by definition , does not make it a proposal ... my "young buck" friend .
If you said "I'm going to build a house" and your local planning authority said "Let's see the design" what would you tell them ? "Well , it'll be big ... bigger than my old house but not bigger than my neighbour's house." Is that a proposal in your books ? Doesn't sound like much of a proposal to me . I guess you could tell that to the bank to see if they understand you but I know for a fact that they certainly wouldn't consider it any sort of proposal .

you really think this sort of 'high density' supertall project will be built somewhere guaranteed? I really get that impression at all while reading the thread? nice to here people actually talking about this tower.
I hope this is true because so many corporations have proposed this sort of vertical city idea before but they are always over the top and over budget,
this towers sounds like it would be much more realistic and probable, hope to here more news soon

Me ? Uh... okay , show me the proposal . Show me the picture of what they're going to build . Seriously , it's not me that doesn't understand the definition and proper usage of this word .

So which is it ? Is there a finished design that has been proposed or not ? I don't see one in this thread . Nobody else seems to be aware of one . Come to think of it , even the company seems to be pretty clear on the fact that no such proposed design exists . Since this is a skyscraper forum and not a critical review of business plans I'm not sure why you'd expect to see the latter on this site .
