      You’re losing focus, yesterday you parodied the eternally offended, today you’re trying to rise them. Stick with one persona per alias.

        I thought it was Janotti/Banotti/Jonotti/Joni2015 no?

        They aren’t even a good troll, remember when we had good trolls? Sigh…

        1. rotide

          Jonotti is a fantastic troll, just like ABM before him.

          No matter what he says there’s 15 replies to him. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was JR himself drumming up a few more clicks.

            Nah, a good troll is a dick and then nice, so as it lure you in and then whack you with something outrageous. Jonotti has no nuance in his approach, that’s why he has to change name so often because people wise up to him and it doesn’t work anymore. No stamina, JUST LIKE IN REAL LIFE EH JONOTTI?

            Take whoever batformemes is – I like that style, shrill and annoying and yet every so often they make sense. I don’t know who they are really though.

            @rotide yes probably

            @hoop I can never guess who people are. It must be another of your powers, along with punning

          Canny remember Jonotti’s writing style. Definitely recognise Helen’s though. Welcome back Hell’s bells!

    Given how readily Dubliners, the media and internet commentators jump to put Dublin down, it’s surprising just how much the foreigners seem to love coming here. I think this is a sign that we should gouge them more.

    But don’t walk around at night. And watch out for the junkies. And the litter. And the empty offices looming over you. And the price, of everything.

    Besides that Dublin is a great place to get drunk in.

    1. ReproBertie

      Ah come on. Don’t walk around at night is an incredibly stupid thing to say. There’s not a city in the world that you can 100% guarantee safety when walking around at night while in Dublin every night there are thousands of people who walk around without a single negative incident. Maybe read less Herald and spend more time walking around.

      1. DubLoony

        I’ve no problem walking around at night. Like any city, keep your eyes open and firm grip on your bag.

      the BEST thing about dublin is its music scene and no other city in the world has as diverse a choice. more to the point it’s often free or for sod all, 7 nights a week. it’s a thing we take for granted here, but in any other city in europe a gig or club costs a jaysus fortune and you’ll be traipsing miles to get to it.

        Night clubs shut up shop at 3am bar that awful coppers kip, most nightclubs run till 6 the rest of the worl

    Was in Copenhagen a a few weeks back for a weekend with some mates. I was stunned to see the levels of homelessness and drunken inebriation on the streets of the city centre. I was stunned to see high levels of open drug use. I was stunned to see a complete lack of police presence. So you see, it’s all relative to our own environment.

    But if you think Dublin is unique, guess again.

    Equating homelessness + addiction issues = scumbag city is a pretty egregious position to hold….

    Emerging from an economic slump, wtf has that got to do with cities tourist rating? I am so sick of economic jargon invading everything. It is so meaningless. Why does everything now have to read like a damned banking prospectus. Just how did ‘strolling down the Liffey’ look like during the slump, exactly the effing same that’s how.

    1. classter

      They are suggesting that you would not notice that we were recently in a slump.

      They are saying this because things seem to be so buzzing – busy, stuff opening, etc.

      Like it or not, the economy is a huge part of how & where things are.

      Why people move into or out of cities, why certain types of arts are clustered in certain cities, etc.

    Dublin. Grand place if you’ve a few bob in yer pocket.
    Sh*te if you don’t.
    Or sing in a metal band….

    1. scottser

      on the contrary. if you’re skint in dublin, a few hours with a sleeping back and an insomnia cup will get you at least 50 bucks.

      Ha. You’ll be waiting a long time for good news on Broadsheet, especially if the government are involved.

      Nothing will be said about it until Monday when Mercille will blame the ‘lamestream media’ for covering up the fact it is actually a right-wing German plot to make everyone in Ireland homeless because reasons (oh, and Sinn Fein will be great).

      1. FreshFish

        Then some
        Right wing apparatchik of the politburo
        Currently exiled to Outer Mongolia
        But leafleting for the Stasi
        Will interject uselessly
        To poke fun at some leftie lame brain

        1. classter

          Your use of the term ‘politburo’ bolsters Kieran NYC’s comment.
          Suggests that the govt are commies.

          1. FreshFish

            No it doesn’t

            I was being deliberately facetious to make the point that Kieran’s knee jerk Redmondism is as tedious and derivative as any Trotskyist twaddle

          2. classter

            But the Stasi were not Trotyskite, they were in fact fond of using the term Torskyite as an insult.

            You don’t get to just put random words together and excuse it as deliberately ‘being facetious’
