You win the irony post of the month award.
Pushing your opponents to an extreme in an argument in order to make your own point more level headed is a very cheap way to lose a debate.

Stating rebuilding the old forum is futile =/= disrespecting traditions&ignoring the achievement of the past.

In the end, its just a building. I'm not saying it doesn't have an importance as it IS a monument. The Queen Mary is a monument to the golden era of cruise ships, you don't see it cruisin' around anymore tho. Historic warships are docked permanently and transformed in museums. I'm pretty sure the Rome Colosseum isn't used for spectacles anymore. I could go on. Fact is its more practical to use the Bell Center. Its new, of course it won't have the history of the forum but give it a chance to write its own.
