The people your talking about are jagoffs. Those guys actually run the dam machine there. I was recently banned by the bastards there for having a run in against the Chicago Spire. That building in my humble opinion is a larger version of what could be sold in some creepy novelty store if you get my meaning. Many of them feel that the CS will be a superior and more attractive building than the Burj Dubai. That is a laugh and a half.

When Steely Dan pm'd me for some warning I pm'd him back and told him where he can stick it, then I got on that thread and told them about the pm and that I don't make deals with crybabies. I got banned and as far as I'm concerned....GOOD!

Yea Fury, most of those guys are bigger pricks than the Chicago Spire.
I have a new found respect for Steely Dan. The only prick by your own words was you.


And, Fury, spamming a Calgary Forum with the exhalts of the Burg Dubai is downright pathetic. It's a record smasher with, in my opinion, an amazing deisgn to boot but, in the end, is just a building.

- Replying to a topic brought up by another forummer is not spamming.

Talk about pathetic ...

Why do you have new found respect for that guy? He banned me because he couldn't take critisism. Valentino you love that clique in SSP. It's their opinion or the highway. Congratulations, your his boyfriend and his robot.

Also the BD is not "just a building" as you so simply put it.

Go to SSP and give those jagoffs my love.

I don't say much in that thread but I do go there daily as the CS is one of 8 projects I am watching closely and saving pics of. I only scour the net for pics of the Burj but the CS thread on SSP has great coverage by HarryC..........

......This structure is the most elegant and complex ever built. The many tiers change shape far more than any other and the height is unmatched. I know I'm preaching to the choir here but there is alot of envious haters out there. Each to there own but no true skyscraper fan can be hatin' this magnificent structure.......

Ahem......I can't see you as banned!!! You must have been seeing things!

Valentino, it looks as if a higher power has intervened. Fury and Beyond 1000 are untouchables.
They laugh in the face of bans, but only at the expense of simple minded, moronic dickheads like yourself.

However if I banned you, it would be the epitome of permanent!

OTR, Chocolate Good, BD picture good....but a BlackBerry....shame on you!
Didn't they have any proper smartphones in the shops? Had they run out of HTC Titan II's

Could have been worse, an iPhone would have been banning material too!

Nice pics by the way, you too Imre, the usual stellar stuff from you guys.

Happy New Year to all
