Response to TreasonousBastard (Reply #37)

38. The Gizmodo title and claim are incorrect and highly misleading

"the builders forgot to include a working elevator" - not at all true. During building, the lifting capacity of the machinery had to be increased. "Forgot the elevator" is even more inaccurate.

If the title had been accurate - "architects have to install bigger lift machinery during construction, and elevators may be crowded in use" - then there would be no interesting story at all. The inaccurate title is there to attract clicks - and it works because the original is in Spanish, so few people will check it.

Basically, it's a lie.
