Many, many issues (Part 1)
I must admit it's hard to keep up with the amount of issues being raised here tamjk. Including the posts on Mullaghanattin that were moved to this thread recently, the subjects have ranged widely and wildly from:

1. Other posters lying about how quickly they reach summits/complete circuits (their claims being called ‘bullshit’

2. Suggestions that those running MountainViews) are irresponsible: ‘There seems to be an undercurrent - passively encouraged by the silent management of this website - of derring-do and buailim scíth in these pages

3. Life insurance cover for those engaged in mountaineering

4. Difficulty rating for summits

5. MountainViews promotes Boastful Bernardism through its ‘league tables’

6. MountainViews disallows any form of dissent against this sub-culture of Boastful Bernardism.

7. Calling another posters’ comment on mapping ‘nonsense’, and calling him Sirrah - Sirrah is used as a term of address for a man or boy, especially one younger or of lower status than the speaker, so it’s hard not to deduce that the other poster was being spoken down to.

8. Claiming that the OSI are unhappy with our collaboration with them: ‘And, from what I hear at the OSI, no one from Mountain View….has pushed very much for their publication despite the obvious advantages’

9. Safe summit routes for mountains to prevent the annual loss of young people on the mountains

10. Safe routes for day trippers as opposed to more experienced hillwalkers

11. The pension fund deficit at OSI

12. Quality of OSI digital mapping

13. Quality of OSI paper mapping

14. Lack of 1:25 000 mapping for Ireland

Wow, it’s a mixed bag! For the record, much of what you have raised has been raised before for discussion in the 11 years of this discussion forum, and MountainViews has always allowed dissenters and critics have their say. We only moderate abusive messages or spam, or posts put in the wrong section

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 5 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
