He means please stop using tinyurl. If we can't judge where a link will lead to just by looking at it, then we don't want to take a chance on it. Just paste the entire link, or do it like this: Obvious Facebook link

Exactly!

I've been changing your links in the Historical section hoping you'd get the hint, but maybe I'm being too subtle. Don't use link shorteners or redirectors - there's no legitimate reason for them. There are ways to tidy up a link if it's too long or messy without resorting to things like this.

It looks pretty awesome. I have a soft spot for futuristic architecture like that. Wish we saw more of that.
Soviet America is Free America!

Under communism, there is no freedom; you are not free to live in poverty, be homeless, to be without an education, to starve, or to be without a job

I found an article with some more pictures of this place. Even without the snow it still looks very cool.

This was the original link without the URL re-director by the way:

Sensational! Absolutely sensational! I'm full of positive emotions right now. I sure would like to see the place for myself one day. More of this should be posted.

It's cool and everything but a waste of resources. It's not like this building in the middle of nowhere had any purpose besides serving as a resort for some party-bigwigs who were carried there once a year for some congress or something.

I'd love to see it restored and the area around it developed with a similar style.

Can the Local Communist Party maybe buy it from the Govt or lay claim to it as a Legacy of their Party?

Imagine if it could become a Showtown/Working example of a Workers Cooperative Town.


I know, I know, I'm probably being unrealistic but It's nice to dream.

It's not that unrealistic. I'd do it if I were a billionaire. Any super rich communists out there that we could write to?
