The buildings are nice, unfortunately this one forum has an ugly face. I posted an article from the Italian newspaper "La Repubblica" dealing with the problem of slavery in building sites in Milan, and it was censored with no explanation whatsoever, after some forumers here called for said post to be erased by some moderator.
And the moderator responsible for this forum ("I am hydrogen") whom I contacted privately to ask for an explanation, has not had the nerve to answer me yet (two weeks passed already). Really, it's a shame.

Peloso, I really don't know why you continue with these critics!?!?!

have you got some problems with the forum and the forumers? send a PM to the Mods or open an appropriate 3d in the Forum Info section.

Posting these comments does not help us to show the projects and talk about it and the viewers are surely not interested in your desperation.

If you are depressed and you don't have anything better to do, you can call a green-line number, someone that want to hear your thoughts will be ready to help you. I can also give you a line of a website for "love-affairs", if you are so frustrated, you will find a girl/boy ready to meet you.

Warning? Excuse me sir, are you a moderator? If not, please stop threatening and making unjustified pretenses, and keep silent, or I will ask for YOU to be banned. See, I'm reporting your threats to the moderators and the persons responsible for the forum right now.

^ basically this section is one of updates and news on projects. I can see why an article on slavery would gets deleted for being offtopic, allthough I can't judge that one for it isn't there for me to read. If you feel that news item is important in any way, please refer to it in some other section. There's almost a thousend here, so many to chose from.

Thanks for your intervention Jan. I understand that for you, not having had a chance to read the article, it's not easy to judge on its legitimacy. Personally, I believe all news and articles coming from respected sources (such as the nationwide Italian newspaper "La Repubblica") and dealing with grave problems like slavery in building sites, should not be considered off-topic. After all, we all want to see new skyscrapers, but no one wants to see people die in the process for lack of safety, or workers being payed 3 dollars an hour.
But whether this should be dealt with on a special thread or not could surely be discussed for forever, so I will not argue on this - let's treat the problem in a separate thread.
What I'd like to point out now is rather the issue of democracy in the forums. In fact, while I subscribe that moderators should not be questioned in their right to erase posts and threads, I believe there should be a short explanation as to why this happened. Or, at least, a private answer to the poster's private polite requests for an explanation. But, most of all: can people who are not moderators speak as though if they were moderators? I believe they cannot. Yet, there are normal users in this forum who behave exactly as if they could decide what is worth being posted and what is not. Such users did not call the post about slavery "off-topic", they called it "ugly" and asked that it be removed - and this happened shortly afterwards.
Also it occurs to me that, in this forum, personal attacks, insults and profanity are not allowed. That's why I'm asking: why don't the real moderators intervene?
Why should I (or anyone) put up with the personal attacks and jeers by that "Pizza, mandolino and mafia" (as to his profile) kid and not react for fear of being banned myself? Why is his obscene signature allowed in the forum at all (It contains the words "a**", "d*ck" and two very vulgar and sexist jokes that I prefer not to translate here)? Why are European1978 "warnings" tolerated? That's why I'm talking about an issue of democracy in this forum. Thank you.

I agree too. If this article was deleted (while it deals with construction sites), why don't they erase posts like "if you want a love affaire...blabla" and other personal attacks?

By the way,

There will be more green (bigger park); the residential buildings have been reprojected by Hadid and Liebeskind; a subway station added.
