    The new daily numbers thread

    Mod warnings:
    1. Please interact in a civil manner
    2. Do not tell others what to do, or what to post
    3. It is against site rules to seek or offer any medical advice. Please do not post here about your symptoms asking what to do. Contact your doctor by telephone and they can advise you as appropriate
    4. If you have a problem with a post report it and leave the modding to the mods

    In terms of thread content:
    • Treat everything you read here with caution. Anything posted is from an anonymous internet poster. You cannot assume anyone has any "specialist" knowledge whatever they claim
    • Statistics are important to some (and I personally pay a lot of attention to them), but they are of very little use to anyone who is already caught up in this, or indeed knows of people who are caught up
    • Whatever your own views are please recognise others are entitled to different views., Even if at different extremes please do not try and repeatedly ram your views down the throats of those who have differing views
    • Cut out any cover-up/conspiracy stuff. If you have a reliable source quote it (not just their words but provide a link to a reliable source) - otherwise your claims carry little if any weight. If you wish to discuss conspiracy theories we have a dedicated forum for that and it’s not this one
    • If the likes of the HSE have a verified Twitter account we can assume what they post is accurate. Randomers on here or elsewhere cannot be considered "official" or "reliable" sources
    • If people wish to flout the restriction rules that is up to them. They cannot complain at the consequences, be that direct action from the authorities, exposure in Social Media (not here) or being shunned by locals, friends, family etc. If they post about it here, or encourage others to flout the rules, trying to appear macho, or thinking they are above the rules or simply being a smart arse, posting privileges will be removed
    • If you don't want to see discussion about Trump perhaps stay clear of this thread between the hours of 22:00 and 01:00. This is a thread for "breaking news" so please do not expect posters to discuss things happening "now" in other threads. It's not discouraged but equally posters expect to discuss such issues in this thread (added 14/04/20)
    • There is absolutely no good reason top try and forecast or predict daily numbers, so do not do so

    All threadbans carry over, but we will reconsider if anyone wishes to discuss it further via PM

    Genuinely is there any need for these if nothing is changing

    Better for everyone if he just does a press release

    Don't read the Examiner so, they are saying March/April will be the most difficult months. No personal services or non essential retail till May. I don't expect a timeline but an indication of metrics to open would give some hope and a goal to reach for.
    It's either the media or government but someone seems intent on pushing people over the edge.

    Cabinet meeting was due 90 minutes ago.

    If there's no credible leak of the new plan before Martin's TV announcement, I will eat my hat. It's so blatant at this stage that it can only be deliberate.

    The thread has been running for 13 months, and over 300,000 posts

    Relaxation of Restrictions has a quarter of the posts, but 60% of that number on the naughty step

    Much to my unending shame, I once graced it too, but due to the benevolence and compassion of our sometimes maligned Mods I enjoy the pleasure of easing my boredom here.

    A crowded step, but I managed to squeeze in.

    On average how long have these threads been lasting. Couple of weeks?

    Must be the most active thread on boards ever.

    We will do everything we can to avoid a 4th lockdown. The strategy for the Government to do this is to maintain the 3rd lockdown. But we will gradually ease you from the burden of your own children and send them back to small, medium and large crèches. Meanwhile... here is some more cash which your children and grandchildren will pay back...

    Eh, what?

    We can meet other people outside?

    Wow that is some commitment to the use of the auld Roman numerals, such dedication to the practice I have only seen replicated in the Super Bowl!!

    Even Wrestlemania jettisoned the practice after around 21!!

    All being said, I think I speak for everyone here when I say let's hope this is one of the last threads the mods need to make on the subject :)

    It's from Donnelly, best to be ignored. He couldn't even get it right about the schools yesterday. I sometimes wonder does he just play games on his phone during cabinet meetings.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,189 ✭✭✭✭ Arghus


    Whatever side of whatever argument you tend to land on I think we can all agree that Donelley is hopeless.

    He seems like your nice but dim friend, that you encourage to do and say stupid things.

    No doubt some cabinet ministers do be feeding him a load of ****e information and wait till he goes on the radio for a laugh.

    I read the data about the drop in hospitalisations and transmission due to the vaccine. Over 18 million have received their first vaccine dose. The UK royally fùcked up at the start of this but while we will still be hoping to get to Penny's sometime in May it's looking likely our neighbour's could be experiencing something akin to normality in the same month.

    No chance of that. Plenty more to come over the next 8 to 10 months at least.

    You're allowed to met another household for exercise, so I guess it depends on how loose your definition of "exercise" is.
