This is sooooo NOT true. I am a Turkish/Greek citizen and I have been to different parts of the world including different parts of the UK because of my job. The UK is one of the most developed countries in the world without a shadow of a doubt. Scotland is gorgeous in its own way. England is wonderful too. Cambridge, Oxford, Brighton, Salisbury etc.. Dreamy cities. Wales is.... C'mon dude. Catherine Zeta Jones is from Wales. How could it be bad over there

I'm not sure where to start with this.....

In one post you have managed to offend

1. Wales
2. Scotland
3. Ulster?
4. Mozambique
5. Haiti
6. Rio
7. The whole of the UK

Quite simply the most idiotic post I have ever read!

You are either very young or incredibly stupid, I'm guessing young.

You have been reported!

This thread is embarrassing!

He successfully managed to let all the viewers know (in fact the world knows it already) how arrogant French people are and how ignorant and delusional he is. None of the things he said is true. I can literally break it down for him start from the first line about GDP to other insults about many countries he wrote. But, why would i bother!

Guys, I've just given out three infractions. You've got to make more civil conversation than this. I'm certainly not going to stand for gross generalizations about whole nations of poeple.

I heard from somebody to whom I gave an infraction, and so I had to help him understand it a little beter. Now I'm explaining it to all of you so that you may better understand it. What I bolded above is where I draw the line. You simply cannot make a gross generalization like this about a whole nation of people. It means you are saying that all people of a certain nation are a certain way when you don't know every single person in that nation. Give more thought to what you're saying before you post it.

If this is true, then direct me to those posts. Q

This thread has been locked and restarted before because of SO143 (aka Amazonian, Cicoz, Opix, G20, 350Z etc.) (old thread), lets not allow him derail this thread again and get it locked. After the previous thread was locked Yellow Fever introduced new harsher rules:

Quote:
The rules of this thread..

-Only skyline photos of the modern skyscrapers allowed. Showing any lowrises or old traditional skylines will be considered trolling.

-All discussion must be in civil manner. No names calling, personal insults and city or country bashing.

-Non skyline related topic will be deleted.

-Think before you post and making sure your posts are complied with the rules.

Offenders will be given infraction, brig and even banning.
I think we should start following the rules and don't fall in the traps of the trolls, just ignore and report them instead of answering by bashing the troll's city/country and escalating the quarrel.

I like this thread because looking at European skylines was how I got introduced to SSC and I want to continue following the progress of our small but beautiful skylines, so please start following the rules...

Please and thank you, because then for the mods, it becomes like trying to sort out who started a brawl at a sporting event. Everybody involved ends up getting penalized by the referee, and this is not what we want to happen.

What is that? A suicide mission? Please, let's focus on beautiful European cities. We have glorious cities all around our home continent and there is no need to insult one another.

Please stop the English/French/Turkish/Russian/Polish etc thing. Just feel proud to be European and share pictures/opinions.

I'm sure what you're getting at here. I'm not concerned with bashing that goes on in newspapers. My concern is keeping peace on this website.
