We don't care which culture do you prefer as better, we only care about skylines over here. I can't believe what do I read over here, like, honey how old are you? As I said you can leave your opinion about the wine, the cheese, the culture, but NOT in here. Stop this silly talk for once, but please!
That's it, this time I really give up from this discussion. One more time white flag from my side, and you can take this little present , you already need to use it after ruining this discussion several times.

Damn! I can't even try to get some rest before I start my real job because of you guys. Yellow Fever, who has been moderating here longer than I have has spoken and backed me up. Now guys, fall in line or suffer the consequences. We have real jobs and lives away from this website just as you all do. Don't make this volunteer job more difficult than it needs to be or I will at least make it easier for me by simply getting rid of people who choose to be difficult. I've never had any real desire to be a babysitter.

But I had already said at this point that Istanbul geographically (and technically) is in Europe and Yellow Fever obviously said it long before I did.

Thank you, Yellow Fever! Now let's see! Where is that ban option again?

It gets to be too much like a real job sometimes. Then, on one hand, you have people complaining that you don't do enough. Then, on the other hand, you have people complaining that you do too much, just like I used to ban kids on a regular basis just for getting smart-ass with me.

The first picture of Istanbul is really impressive. Just WOW. Istanbul is in Europe and some French (trolls) on here should acknowledge it too. It's always nice to have more great cities in Europe and Istanbul is obviously one of them.

hehe. But you are right. It must be frustrating to eliminate who is the real trouble maker and who is not. I would probably ban everyone if I was a mod I've got the power mode

By the way the second Istanbul picture is very old obviously. Erhan you should find us a shot taken from Mecidiyekoy that consists both towers in Mecidiyekoy and Levent in the background.

Being a mod, you have to stay calm and can't be too emotional. You must remain neutral and can not take sides. Banning should only be used when all other options are exhausted.

I tried to find some good angles of Istanbul, but I didn't see any right off. It's why I took up urban/architectural photography myself. Now I don't have to hunt for the best angles of Miami. I simply go out and capture them myself.

I like striking the fear in their hearts though. It tends to keep things running more smoothly, seriously.

Then you should definitely go to Istanbul and wander around the little streets. It is like a heaven for a photographer. I am an architect myself and I used to do that all the time. Every street has another surprise for you and you never get tired of walking!

This was me years ago when I first became a member of the moderating staff and I was cautioned against it.

At this point, I think giving you all a little more background on me is in order. I'm 58 years old. I learned very soon after joining SkyscraperCity that most of the men on this website are young enough to be my sons. Since my own biological father was only 20 years older than me, that means any man under the age of 40 is young enough to be my son. If you're a teenager, you could be my grandson. I was raised by my stepfather though (nutcase that he was along with my mother. I practically raised myself.) If I spoke to him in a manner that he thought was in any way disrespectful, I went flying across the room before I even knew what had happened.

As a result, my biggest pet peeve about SkyscraperCity is men who are young enough to be my youngest sons talking to me any sarcastic, smart-ass way they please, when I was taught to respect people old enough to be my parents. Of course, oftentimes, they don't know who they're talking to. All the more reason you should treat everyone with respect and courtesy in making civil conversation on this website. Sometimes, you guys leave men wondering if you were raised in a damn tree or what. Sometimes, you act as though you know every damn thing in the universe when you just popped out of the womb.

So from now on, everybody treats everybody else with respect and make civil conversation. Don't carry on like a jackass because it's the internet and you think you can get away with it.

You are certainly right. I am 28 years old and even I can't stand such people. So I totally understand you. Please don't hesitate to cut the tree in order to save the thread. I and I believe most of the members would appreciate that. Also, enjoy the nice weather down in Miami. I am buried under 2 feet of snow over here and of course Jimmy John's doesn't deliver!

But isn't the Istanbul skyline on the European side of the city?
