Users get ban for violate the rules... In this case I don't see any violations.
By the way, it is free for passing along ideas and informations... it's up to you read or not, agree or don't.

No they haven't. It's up to the 60th floor. Nearly 61st, these new steel pieces look almost 3 stories tall. I'd call it 60.5 floors. About 725-730 feet tall.
