    U know something? I agree that my blanket comment may have offended Kit and I have apologised, though to me it is a true to a certain degree that URA has more architects than most organisations and I wish that the consciousness of these issues would be higher there.

    Call me jackass, shrug, alright...it's ok, I guess I deserve it to a certain extent. Apologies Kit.

    But I seriously do not think that you calling everyone else freaking childish is much appreciated or very mature.....but oh well, it's free speech here Cheers to u, no hard feelings....

    Simple.

    Don't agree to terms, don't take part. If you feel that you're being rip-off, don't take part.

    Yea, free speech plus whining and bitching is part of the culture here. Need not take these folks too seriously.

    No one's pointing a gun at anyone's head to force them to join anyway. Maybe to some, their intellectual properities is worth more than $2k, well, good for them!

    Yes, let's face it, it would have appeared that the competition rules as they were originally prepared came across rather unreasonble (I didn't actually read about it since I was merely passing along news of this competition). I am at least glad that something good has come out of all this - that the URA has amended and clarified that it's only the winning entries that will be reused down the road for their publications and exhibitions.

    But golly, the tone of some the posts here are equally dumb to begin with: e.g., write to MP, write to newspaper.........how freaking childish can you be?

    I think your are absurd for calling people jackass! and childish! No one offended you, yet you throw abuse at others, unless you are related to URA in one way or another. Next time save your energy and don't bother to pass any message least you get offended for no reason.

    Absurd? Nope. Honest, yes. He IS a jackass (hmm, unless you are one too and you can't see that............ oh, yes, you really can't I can tell)

    Offended me? Of course some of these posters have, including YOU! You have offended my sensibilities as a Mr Nice Citizen. ;-)

    To everyone else except kahheng: Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.

    To surf: Yep. Let's sit back & enjoy the free show... Let us be amused.

    Oeyvind: The point of quotations is that one can use another's words to be insulting.
