Do you people not understand what he was talking about?
He was saying how the PICTURES are substandard...
We're talking about skylines- not streets.

the problem is: _00_deathscar is NOT even ethnically Chinese.

and last time, he also called a Korean girl 'an ugly Chinese woman'.

This statement triggered it all. You mentioned race while that guy commented on the substandard photo...why did you include race in the picture?

Second? if this is true....it's an isolated case. The Philippines has been known to be tolerant to races, ethinicity, religion. We have not experienced racial riots....the Chinese are well assimilated in our culture.

It was more than one picture, but the 'attack' wasn't entirely directed at your post, but more the pervasiveness of irrelevant (and poor) photos that have been posted. NYCgirl made a similar comment on the "World's Best Skyline" thread.

If you can find good photos of Jakarta, Bangkok, Manila, etc then I'm more than happy to view them.

I see. So perhaps you should list out all the races you think are 'substandard', just so we can be clear?

I know you did, but it was on the previous page, so I posted it again. No one is going to go back a page to check what was posted earlier!

And being ethnocentric gets you where?
Not specifying any race is like saying all races
Why don't you just stop- you're not going anywhere with what you're saying.

Dude, u r an honest man. I'm so agree with you that some kind of 'patriotism' in this thread is not welcomed. We should set a standard that only beautiful skyline photos can me posted. Not all bunch of crappy 'wow I'm so proud of my city'-type photos.....

Guys, get over it. Just because some person posts some sort of racist comment doesn't mean that we have to get all crazy and point at him.

@deathscar: although a mod did say that this is not a "post any city" or "post your home town" thread, I think that we shouldn't be so strict of how people post pictures. Sure, the candid photo with a puddle in Jakarta is certainly ridiculous and irrelevant to skylines, but the other photos aren't.

Even though I (and most others) think that Hong Kong has the best skylines, why not just change the thread name to "Post your Hong Kong pictures here!"? As long as a city is among the best, I think they should deserve some glory. In this case, Jakarta has a decent skyline in terms of the whole of Asia. Posting Lhasa as the best skyline is the world is bullshit for sure, but not really for Jakarta, though it might be like a "class B" skyline. We don't want to turn this into a Hong Kong thread, yes ?

EDIT: I think the best Asian Skyline is Hong Kong! (lol, as i've said before)

Having said that,

(Credits to Wan Li Book Co, limited)













Credits are printed on the photos.

Are 11 pictures allowed? Heard from somewhere that only 10 could be posted max. If that's the case moderators remove 1 of them please! (And it better be the worse one)

Anyways, enjoy the photos!

EDIT: There, the source should be clear enough.
