Q
Why do most of the 200,000 members of TP not post?
Is it because their sentences are not gramatically correct enough, for a travel chat site?
Or is it because the moderators are as bad as the trolls?

Surely there's no need for that.

No one is forcing you to stay here

U are right Mickeyboab, there is no need for that or what came before it, for that matter.

Lets just give each other plenty of space, in future James.

I'm not going to change what and where I post. All I will do is not accuse you of being Elnaz.

With due respect, I think I'll be around here long after you've had enough and moved on.

Normally, comments like these would be deleted without hestitation due to their inflammatory content. But, since you insist on repeatedly displaying your contempt for the Moderators in the open forums, what's the point of deletions when you will just comment again about being treated unfairly. You believe there to be a "bad attitude" on TP lately and you may be correct. It's continued comments like these being posted throughout the threads and forums that tend to create strife. Time and time again, you have been asked to use the message center for lodging your concerns and complaints - something you refuse to do under the guise of the Moderators being a little band of trolls. Administration has also asked you to make contact that way - whether you have or not remains to be seen.

Personally, I don't believe you know how many people actually post on TP any more than I do. That comment is just another example of a sweeping generalization. It's not the Moderators who are at fault as many (if not the majority) of members feel the Moderators are doing their assigned "jobs" quite effectively. In this instance, members have run out of patience with trying to have a discussion and being taken to task for not responding in someone else's preconceived way. They dislike having their comments misconstrued regularly, dislike being misquoted, dislike having threads misdirected over and over, and really dislike the name-calling. When a Moderator steps in to bring a topic back in line or end a dispute, they receive comments like the ones above. There is no "I can do that but you can't" policy when it comes to derogatory remarks and calling someone names. I'm not sure at what point in time you decided you needed to start policing the Moderators and other members, but Administration does that well enough and does not require your input.

There are two choices here - either bring this thread back on topic and stop the bickering or move on as this discussion is closed. Any further posts not concerning wages or the workplace will be deleted.

Minimum wage rate in Ireland, for an experienced adult employee from 1 July 2007 is €8.65 an hour.
An experienced adult employee for the purposes of the National Minimum Wage Act is an employee who has an employment of any kind in any 2 years over the age of 18.

Does this mean that if you have not worked for two years you are not entitled to a minimum wage?

I never realized other systems were set up so different from ours - I'm not shocked, but mostly curious. It's quite interesting the different ramifications of the seemingly two major different systems . . .

It's a great observation you've made. This is why it's so dangerous to apply one's "common" knowledge to another place.

Two interesting websites I found googling "minimum wage around the world".
