And many others have expressed appreciation for his activity on this thead. Let me add my name to that list. SO143, PortoNuts, and SE9 are the main contributors to this thread, and their contributions are far more valuable than those of their critics.

Can't believe people are accusing SO143 of trolling, what on earth is going on here. I see absolutely nothing wrong with what he posts, and also enjoy the frequent updates that the likes of SO143, PortoNuts and SE9 contribute to this thread. These boys do a cracking good job of keeping people informed on a city which we all love & enjoy. Leave 'em alone & let them do their thing. If it troubles you that much then I suggest either not bothering to read their posts in the first place or at least be civil about your disagreements. Someone posting an old news article really doesn't deserve to be treated with disrespect and foul language.

He posts a lot of old stuff, he posts a lot of stuff full of rhethoric designed to bait other forumers, he posts it everywhere except the UK forums. He's a troll.
You should use your ignore list, since the moderators don't seem to do much about this. I don't have a problem with members who post frequently, but this guy floods every london thread with photos, every single day. Which is not needed. Not to mention the offtopic and often outdated news articles.

This is a way he does things and you cannot change him. One thing for sure, I haven't seen him going personal and bullying other users. Yes, his posts sometimes are somewhat provocative but they are not addressed to anybody in particular. Also, recently he has become better in not doing this. Anyway, by bullying someone the only thing you can achieve is to discourage that person to post here all together and I don’t think this is what you are trying to achieve.

Oh dear well sorry to upset you furthermore Mr El Greco as it was not my intention, however I do hope that eventually you are able to resume using the forum in peace & without such inconvenient distractions. As Groningen NL kindly points out, you may find that the ignore list will help you in this endeavour.

It's ridiculous that someone should flood a forum with photos and info on a daily basis. Arghhh!!! , what's this site coming to? Usually when I'm in the mood to see some development action going on in the world I go to Skyscraperpage.com but every now and again I say let's go to skyscrapercity.com and I hear a little voice saying "don't go there, they don't like people overburdening the servers with stupid posts about places they like to talk about", and I say, "this website talks about cool international cities, talks about things that I'm not privy to on a daily basis, to let's say San Francisco, where I live". Then I here that someone with over 20,000 posts is a troll and that everything he says is old news. Seriously, as much as I might admire the coloring of some blah look at us were Dutch architects' building in Amsterdam, to the 98% of people on this forum not living anywhere near London, the person with the avatar based on the movie Ted has some info on London, whether it's the most up to date or not, I don't know, but if you El Greco and you small but architecturally sound city from the Netherlands has anything better about London then you should post it and demonize someone else. Can someone create another skyscraper something for people who actually love living in cities and admire architecture. I like going to both these sites, but the stuff people write on here and there is insane. How can I out douche someone? Very frustrating, yet there are several forummers on here that I like reading and definitely respect, and yet there is a reason I post once every few months.

Bait other forumers? There have been no arguments on here until you popped up.
I do not care about other forums, this is the UK forum.
If something is out of date then perhaps post a new link?
If you act like a spoilt child then yes, I will patronise you.

No, it is not. This is the international forum intended for a global audience.

Here is the UK & Ireland forum: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29

This ain't UK forum and theres been plenty of arguments. If you have no idea what the talk is about then don't join in the conversation.

Don't be so ****.
This is a thread on London, most of the people posting are British.
I don't have the time to find updates and post 1000's of times so any info he gives is good. In my eyes he is not a troll.

SO143 does a great job. His style of posting is entirely appropriate to this thread. Clearly most people appreciate his posts, considering the number of likes he has amassed.

The only people causing any problem are the very vocal minority criticizing him.

Ignore El Greco. All he does is moan.... Well... He fits it in between having his tongue wedged in the French forumers backsides... Or pleasuring himself over pictures of the Eiffel Tower.

Oh come on now, can't you do better than that? If you are going to troll and insult at least try and be more original.

I also have reservations about SO1043's posts.

I enjoy a fair bulk, however ... when he has commented on news stories and re-posts stories that have been posted a few days or weeks before, it becomes very irritating and I see it as spamming. It's to bump the thread and I guess to gain some sort of internet credit. It's not needed.

Post when it's relevant yes, but to post the same articles time after time just makes the thread confusing and therefore i'm partly on El Greco's side.

SO1043 is not a troll, he just needs to get a real life outside of skyscrapercity.
