    Mod warnings

    It looks like tensions in this thread have been rising

    Some general warnings to all:

    Remain civil. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just because it's the polar opposite of your own does not invalidate it. Anyone who is uncivil towards other users can expect a minimum of a threadban.

    Keep to the topic

    Do not present "opinion" as "fact"

    Do not believe all stats that are spouted. Usually figures presented in any official way are not only checked for inaccuracies, but will also have caveats and/or explanations of what was done to derive any conclusions reached. Stats though are not "facts" beyond the sample they represent. They can be used to draw conclusions over wider populations, but those conclusions are always subject to a margin of error

    If you throw up an example please explain what point you are making. For example "Look at Sweden" means nothing unless you say what you are looking at in connection with Sweden. Is it restrictions, is it deaths, is it infections?

    Hinting or implying that other users are re-regs is against the charter. It is strongly advised that you report posts and let the mods deal with it.

    Threadbans will follow if people cannot follow this simple instruction.

    Another reminder - this thread is about restrictions and their relaxation

    General Covid discussion belongs in the current Covid thread (#XVII)

    Political discussion belongs in Current Affairs or Politics

    Mod:

    Mod actions can be discussed via PM if you like.

    On thread is not permitted.

    Keep it civil and on topic and you can discuss the restrictions or your opposition to them as much as you like

    Stop bringing the cervical cancer discussion into this thread, if you want to discuss it, start a thread on it elsewhere on the site.

    Mod:


    I'm not going to post another warning on this - stop bringing up the cervical cancer issues in this thread.

    It's in the OP not to discuss the issue, if you want to discuss it, go to another forum and start a thread on it, it is not Covid related.

    Threadbans will follow if people cannot follow this instruction

    Discussion of vaccination and vaccination certs in the context of restrictions is on topic. Discussions of the efficacy of vaccines and impact on different cohorts in the community belongs in the vaccine megathread thread, not here

    09/12/21
    We get the fact some of you bare dissatisfied with the performance of the Chief Medical Officer, NEPHT, members of the Government and indeed some of the experts you may pay attention to on TV, radio or indeed the print media

    We also get the fact that some of you like to let off steam in this and indeed other threads in the forum

    However repeatedly stating your dislike/hatred of such people and abusing them here is not only irritating to posters who like to interact in a civil manner, but it's also highly offensive to the individuals in question. Can posters just refrain from resorting to such commentary as it not going to achieve anything beyond winding up (ie trolling) other users and attracting mod attention

    NPHET are a shower of gowls and our government are worse for listening to them.

    (Nothing new I just wanted to be first :D )

    No indoor hospitality this summer

    Then we can't have indoor hospitality as it will threaten the opening of schools no doubt

    Mad that we are more restricted in 2021 than 2020 when we had no vaccinations

    Yup, anyone who thinks we'll get indoor hospitality any time soon without some mass protesting/disobedience is a fool.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,517 ✭✭✭ RobitTV


    It's sad that we are here on the new thread under even worse circumstances.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,834 ✭✭✭✭ leahyl


    Just cancelled my 2 bookings for indoor dining for next few weeks - I expect restaurants will be getting a lot of those emails today :-(


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,339 ✭✭✭✭ Dyr


    I'm fully vaccinated so I suppose I'm in the clear, but this is one of the few times that I'm angry enough to take a hurl to this shower of tossers

    .

    Just so it's clear - won't open on the 19th either per MM but we'll have a "plan". WE'VE HAD MONTHS FOR A PLAN!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,919 ✭✭✭ TomSweeney


    Listening to Liveline now and even they are airing contrary views to this delaying of indoor hospitality.

    Of course the host is **** over the virus and defending NPHET...


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,924 ✭✭✭ KrustyUCC


    Speaking this afternoon Mr Martin said when a sector of the economy reopens the Government wants to “make sure it stays open”.

    This crap again

    Keep indoor hospitality closed so it doesn't have an opportunity to remain open

    Keep it shut so they won't have to shut it down again

    Brilliant logic as usual from the government


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,834 ✭✭✭✭ leahyl


    Poor guy on Liveline now sounds so defeated


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,046 ✭✭✭ funnydoggy


    I really hope there is a massive backlash to this, and not just online.

    How the fúck is anyone still lapping this guff up at this point?


  • Subscribers Posts: 36,053 ✭✭✭✭ sydthebeat


    putting this up for posterity

    not a hope in hell will pubs or indoor dining be open before the august bank holiday weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,202 ✭✭✭ Lucas Hood


    THE GOVERNMENT HAS said that from 5 July, there will be “no limit” on visiting numbers for fully vaccinated people or those who recently recovered from Covid-19

    How is it possible to police that? What's to stop someone just saying I had covid recently.

    My own scenario, 2 parents, Older brother and sister all vaccinated, me 32 not vaccinated and haven't had covid so I wouldn't be able to attend a house party with them for instance? But if i got the virus I would how does that make sense.


  • Registered Users Posts: 689 ✭✭✭ Quags


    Surely its time for mass protesting. People who are depending on the 5th for Mortgage Money, Money for family and whatever else have being let down again


  • Registered Users Posts: 289 ✭✭ boomtown1


    How will this work for children who cannot be vaccinated?

    So it looks like we should get the HSE vaccination card laminated...
    Is it now worth more than a twenty Euro note?


  • Registered Users Posts: 209 ✭✭ Responder XY


    I'm very disappointed with the decision, but delighted to see that there is very little support for the Nphet/government position, finally we might be moving into a place where the population realises that we need to live with Covid. I hope it's not just that Boards is becoming an echo chamber.

    The rest of the year is in doubt to be honest. When August rolls around the need to "protect the schools" will be new mantra. NPHET even mentioned that in their letter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,007 ✭✭✭ bloopy


    No indoor dining without vaccine or proof of previous infection.
    Covid parties about to become all the rage.

    I have bad news for you if you're using these restriction threads as a metric...


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,916 ✭✭✭ MOR316


    So does this mean gym goers can't use the gym unless they take a vaccine?


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,864 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    Maybe next year we'll be able to have a meaningful Easter?

    By then the Theta variant will be causing concern and NPHET will be projecting half a billion cases by the middle of May 2022.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,053 ✭✭✭ BringBackMick


    Is it possible the forgot to include the impact of vaccinations in their model output?

    Hopefully someone is working on this now

    NEPHET need to publish their model parameters


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,834 ✭✭✭✭ leahyl


    Jesus the man on liveline set up a kitchen in his pub so he could open last year and now he can’t bring people in!!! This is just criminal.

    It means they can't use it at all until the 19th when we get to see the "plan". Other than that nobody knows wtf is going on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,364 ✭✭✭✭ Vicxas


    So hang on, its now more beneficial to have had COVID than not.....

    This is about control. This won't end. Egomaniacs like Holohan don't relinquish power and our Govt aren't fit for purpose with MM a joke of cartoon proportions. The level of tyranny and zealotry have been steadily growing since this time last year so it's really not remotely surprising that we are where we are and god only knows how much worse it will get before we ever see a shred of normality in this godforsaken country.

    I'm just back from abroad. The difference in daily life between here and other countries is just incredible, it beggars belief. We have been brainwashed into hysteria, fear, over caution and as I said already, it won't end soon and it won't end easily. You really have to get out and come back to see it clearly. It's astounding and very frightening.
