What he said was that if he should shut up, because moaning and groaning wasn't going to stop anything being built, as one poster put put, then you might as well shut down the forum altogether.

Nobody here is in a position to stop or start any specific building, so if that's the prerequisite of expressing an opinion, yes, you might as well shut it down!

It's a rude and dismissive attitude. Let the man/woman have his/her say. I'm surprised at you, Paul, wading in with the pack like that.


Oh another one who is deciding that maybe the forum should be shut down!! :roll:

What do you mean wading in with the pack!! :evil: - no I didn't I actually removed the thread that had a little of the 'pack mentality' about it However am I not allowed to have an opinion on pretty much what this forum is here for? Anyone who feels that it's not there cup of tea then why visit? Plenty of us like the idea of a high rise Cardiff city centre URBANO did not particularly share those wishes - and questioned what was being debated on an Architectural forum and that is not specifically what this place is. Would you join a fishing forum if you didn't enjoy fishing? there was always going to be conflict as his end desires for our city differed from many on here and often as somebody stated that he did this in a superior and pompous way which I believe wound people up!

Look Urbano has now gone - I didn't ban him he requested politely that I remove him as a member - and that has been done.


You are very much mistaken - URBANO said on many occasions that he was happy with tall, he just didn't agree with the crap quality that we were seeing.

This forum is a poorer place if the likes of URBANO feel the need for a self imposed exile. It's not good at all.

Now that's your opinion - some might have found it awkward to post with the possibility of being swatted down by an expert!! I'm not going to argue or discuss this anymore it's winding me up too much if I'm honest - but please let me know if you would like me to remove you as a member - as your opinion is... "It's not good at all" and I hate to think I'm putting members through distress!!

Phew an oasis of peace asking a question about tower! :)

I think the central core has finished growing now on level 25.

OK Jantra has left the building and he's been here virtually since the start - so that's regretful

So this could be the start of more who wish to be excluded - please let me know and then those remaining can crack on. Incidentally no matter how many members wish to leave this forum remains!! I'm hoping we can lighten up a bit moving forward, even if it's just me and the cat!! :) If you've been lurking and fancy joining in with perhaps a more harmonious forum then please join us!!

"...so if that's the prerequisite of expressing an opinion, yes, you might as well shut it down! "

Your correct response was surely to say that people can come here and express their views on subjects whether or not they concur with the majority, and whether or not they're able to influence anything. Not side with the dismissive "tough luck, it's happening - get over it" put down.

The forum has just lost two people - one of them has been here so long he's practically part of the furniture. Regardless of the fact that I rarely agreed with a word he said, you surely have to agree this is a poorer place without him. Is this really what you want?!
