  1. I was out Monday and Thursday so gave Friday a miss

    Both nights seemed quiet for the time of year in the two restaurants we attended.

    Nice to see things becoming a bit more civilised, I've never got the whole let's go out looking for a fight mentality.

  2. We're just separating them out as we take them in and once we've got £20 worth, bagging them up and putting them in with the banking. Doesn't take too long to do and at least they're out of circulation then.

    My arse this will happen. Firstly the dispute with Vermuellen then if it ever gets off the ground, as the first spade is being dug in expect a revised planning application being requested. As the hotel will not be viable and only alternative is a block of flats. Planning approved. 

     

    In the same vein as 'Remember South Ramsey', remember Mount Murray...

  4. Scrolling through my FB feed the other day and I see MF had made the news. Curiosity got the better of me so I popped in for a skeet and saw this thread.

    It's a real shame that the team are giving serious consideration to closing the place down but quite frankly, I don't blame them. I stopped posting long before the current batch of idiots and it was bad enough then so I can't imagine how bad must have become to reach this point.

    Having read this thread, it seems like there is still a strong desire to keep the place running from the perspective of the long standing members and a few have suggested adding new moderators to take off some of the pressure of the existing team. How many would actually put themselves forward though? It's a great idea but actions speak louder than words and it probably needs the more experienced posters to step up to the plate rather than a bunch of newbies who don't fully understand the dynamics of the forum.

    If all else fails, I'll happily wield the ban hammer until this problem goes away. :)

    But logically if I operated a sweet shop and banned someone from frequenting my store for licking all the sherberts I assume I have some recourse to stop them coming back

    There are Shopwatch schemes in both Douglas and Ramsey. If you get banned in one shop, you are automatically banned in all of the others in the scheme. If someone refuses to leave your store, you just call the Police and they will come and remove them.

    I wonder if they all got a last chance to visit Jurby Junk before it closes.

    They actually get coaches calling in there, whole bloody coachloads of people, regularly too!
