Per Corell, do you really buy that crap? You said about Obvious, "your arogant attitude is very pleasing". I don't know if "pleasing" is the word. That arrogance, that verbal masturbation is so so so very tired - actually, it's OBVIOUS.

I asked a simple question to see how people felt about their submissions to the WTC comp. It is NOT true that everyone will think they did great. Good designers know their weeknesses, and are honest about shortcomings in their final effort. I simply wanted to hear some insights. I also asked if anyone could share their ideas and concepts so that we might ponder and discuss them.

Then Obvious goes into this smarter-than-thou stance with 10 cent words (and horrible punctuation) about how I have asked the wrong question. But the right question (according to him) was to talk about how hard it will be to judge. Does this sound like someone interested in design? NO. Like Old Owl hinted, Obvious is more interested in fame than concepts. Obvious wants to talk about the process of selection, not the process of design.

The stance is amateur. The tone is condescending. And the person is Obvious.
