You're posting skylines of cities, I would ignore anyone who gets offended.

You can express your opinion on why you think a certain skyline is better than another, however, simply putting VS, is always going to descend this thread spiralling out of control.

that "VS" could also be thought as a comparison between similar skylines, and not necessarily as a city against city.

I liked it. and I personally prefered the Moscow pic, but someone else for sure could prefer London's.

I cannot see any discrimination.

Obviously on the other hand flame war is bad and no one likes it but its just radical example of discussion, sterile threads like this with any sort of discussion are truly boring. It's just everyone sharing their photos but no one discuss it(or maybe occasionaly one will praise some pic), everyone is afraid of saying anything and sharing their opinion because generally its adopted that every city is almost equally good and "this type of discussion leads to arguments". Guys... its a forum after all not an image board and in the title of this thread we have word "DISCUSS" so it's for discussion not just photos.

In London vs Moscow subject I would say that for now Moscow impresses me more although I think London has higher overall quality but Moscow has more supertalls and its taller.
You are new here apparently and don't know what it's been like in here or how quickly things escalate into all out fighting in here. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion or defending your opinion, but the very word "versus" is confrontational and I'm nipping things in the bud before they escalate.

The mods often get criticized for doing too much or too little. On this thread, we've often been criticized for doing too little. I'd rather do too much than too little and keep things under control before they get out of hand.

I dont like Moscows skyline, sure the highrises themselves are impressive, but in my opinion they are built way to close to each other and to fast. I mean beside that "small" cluster with very modern scyscrapers what else is there? They should build some mid and lowrises around the higher cluster now and spread it out a bit more, for now i cant really like it as much as i want to, maybe in the future?

I prefer the older skylines wich has grown over a longer period, my abolute favourite is Frankfurt.
