That wasn't mean and after the first 2 sentences, it was appropriate. The third sentence was well thought out imo

That's not right. burjdubai.com still says it is only 629m. And in one article about burj dubai on emaar.com they confirmed it was 636m.

After that ther was no official announcement about the height. I think they are waiting for the current floor to be completed, they only announce completed floor heights.

Tallest structure ever was 646.4m. Burj Dubai just surpassed it last week, so it is not possible for them to confirm it 2 months ago. Indeed, they confirmed it is the tallest structure on earth but "Tallest existing structure on earth" and "tallest structure ever built" are not the same.

On the first mechanical floor, why do they cover cladding with steel rods on the bottom half of the mechanical floord and not the top half? Or are they going to do top half later on?

I already pointed this out. And when you look closely you can see that in some parts they are installed on the whole floor height so they are probably going to add them on other sections as well.

First off the article is definitely fake, and second (no offense korea2002) korea2002's English sucks. He definitely uses an auto-translator which is why about 10% of the words in the articles are pure gobledeegook.

Third off, getting back on topic, it's good to see another floor about to rise!
