Sir Rols Posted January 16 Report Share Posted January 16 (edited) 11 hours ago, FYI said: I can't really recall that. At least not here on GB's anyway. Many forumers then were all up in arms over the decision, that they couldn't understand it at all. Meh. I can’t recall much outrage. Like any race, particularly in GBids heyday, there were supporters of the various bids. But there weren’t to my memory feral Austrians and Russians engaged in army bargy, so for most it was the philosophical choice between what many considered a worthy new frontier but with all to be built versus an picturesque established location in the Land of the Von Trapps (I do remember a lot of Sound of Music memes). It wasn’t so much a surprise as more confirming some people’s biases and confounding others’. As to the build from scratch aspect, a general thought was that if anybody could do it, Russia could. Putin hadn’t risen from the presidential grave to brazenly establish the Second Evil Empire at that stage.
