I am not going to issue multiple Warnings for posts that were posted at the same time, but this is also not appropriate language to be directed at other posters.

This is WAY too close to an accusation of sock-puppetry. Knock it off.

If you believe a poster is engaged in sock puppetry, report the post. Do not make public accusations.

That's actually kind of funny. But this is a hijack of the thread, so feel free to have the last word on this.
I don't know how you could claim anything else. Trump Tower was built by the company founded and made successful by Fred Trump. If Paris Hilton takes over the Hilton brand tomorrow, it's still not her name on those hotels.

This thread is apparently more successfully-persuasive than we'd have guessed. Clearly the crème de la crème (aka сливки крема) have been enlisted to derail it. What a compliment!

Elsewhere in the world, a Russian ambassador is Righteously Indignant at allegations of electoral interference--trying to enlist (or stoke) ancient inter-nation resentments in aid of his cause:

Quote:
Russia’s new ambassador to Ireland has described allegations that Moscow is interfering in other countries’ democratic processes as ridiculous and ludicrous.
... Our response to that is a cliche in Russia. When you have anything ridiculous, or out of this world, Russians say, ‘British scientists have discovered . . .’ It’s like April Fool’s Day,” he said...

The (fairly obvious) point that he's making is that those towers are named "Trump" because they're trying to conjure up the well-known Donald Trump, not the completely obscure Fred Trump.

Treachery and treason was last week. This week, its groping.
