After reviving many PM's regarding this thread and having a discussion with my fellow moderator we have decided to reopen this thread under strict conditions. As all previous warnings that myself and mango salsa issued have been ignored i have outlined below some points that will help this thread flow.
Any personal abuse of fellow posters or anyone will incur a months ban.
Any off topic posts will be removed and the offender will receive an infraction.
If you want to rant about a Councillor start a new thread as this is not the place.
Read the forum charter before you post as it will help avoid moderator attention.
Any further information required please pm mango salsa or myself and we will be glad to help out.
This is the final warning, if locked again it will not reopen and no new threads will be allowed.
I'd like to start a thread that collects news and views on Greystones harbour and marina. Given the demonstrated eager propensity of the large-handed moderators to close anything down quickly if it strays from the topic of the OP, I ask that all of you who want to discuss anything other than "News and views on Greystones harbour and marina" do it in a separate thread. That way perhaps we can avoid the thread being closed whilst there are still very active participants providing useful information to the community...
I will initiate the thread by saying that although I was against the development that was on principle - the principle being that this is the first time that public beach land in Ireland has been given over to a developer, and that it should not have been counternanced without the State becoming involved - as in the "real" politicians rather than our municipal ones. Now that it is happening, I have "moved on", and welcome its completion as I do think it will add significantly to Greystones.
Please add your news (state the facts and reference the sources) and views (fact-less), but please keep to the topic of the thread.
