We both know the difference between 'Would you mind elaborating?' and 'Elaborate.' If you don't, I'm not sure an explanation of the difference will make sense to you, so it's not in my interest to pursue the matter further. But I know you do, so the point is moot.Disrespect? You posted a very quick, subjective evaluation and didn't even take the time to tell us why. That's fine, but so is me asking you to explain what you meant in your post.
But yeah, I have to disagree with your evaluation. What's wrong with 60s apartment buildings? A mix of architecture is what makes downtown really cool.. you get those "onion layers" of history.
As for my comment, I can understand that it might come as a surprise to you and other members that I actually have no pretensions that the claims I make here have any authority or should even really be listened to. My interest in Toronto's urban development is simple and naive, and I'm okay with that. I don't come here to enter into a discourse of justification.
So, though I'm not sure really what you mean by 'subjective' or 'objective', all I can offer is a more refined set of descriptions for why I see that particular shot, at that particular time, in those particular weather conditions, in that particular state of construction of the city, dismal. And my remark was so off-the-cuff that I'm not really interested in doing that right now.
Though I'm always interested to read what other members think, and am happy to countenance opposing views.
