Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

Bryan, after three cracks at your reply, I think that last post was your best. Nice work.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

"But it sounds like a call to police/livability would have solved your problem."

You don't think the entire block called the police and the livability court? They took months to even acknowledge the problem. When the city finally did something, the judge said the city needed to settle the issue once and for all before he fined the owner.

"not unlike how pre-civil rights era Charleston treated African Americans and their basic rights to life, liberty and happiness."

You're comparing short-term rental regulation in neighborhoods - in houses that are often worth millions - with Jim Crow and the systematic brutalization of African Americans after the Civil War? Let me throw this out there: You're an idiot.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

"The City of Charleston recently concluded four listening sessions which revealed that Charleston residents are generally in favor of allowing homeowners..."

"the majority of the city has expressed a desire in seeing develop, according to listening session data."

Well hot damn, that's good enough for me! What's more scientific than some "listening sessions," right Dwayne?

Hey, buddy, get one of those airbnb houses next door and let me know how much you like it. We literally had tour buses rolling up on Rutledge Avenue for parties. It was fantastic. Idiots pumping music and having a good ole fashioned hoot five feet from where people sleep. Guys with no shirts on sitting on the porch threatening anyone who said anything about them parking on the sidewalk. You'd no doubt love it, Mr. Green. And speaking of your undying love of property rights, can I put in a pig farm and strip club next to your house? If I own the property, why should you object?

Hey, folks at the City Paper, just have a software program take over writing for Dwayne Green. A bot could write something just as predictable and inane as Dwayne without all the lawyerly dissembling.

Re: “Should the Dewberry's rooftop bar have been allowed to open?

"And although a few neighbors may have won in this instance, it's the rest of us that have certainly lost out on something wonderful."


Okay, now I'm totally convinced that Dwayne Green is a program created by the Chamber of Commerce to automatically respond to any zoning issue with 950 words of inane talking points.

If the Beach Company proposed a Golden Nugget Casino on Magnolia Cemetery, the DwayneBot would respond in the City Paper with an article recycling his due process arguments and lamenting the cultural and aesthetic loss of a national treasure.

Re: “Both sides await judge’s ruling on lawsuit challenging Charleston’s tour guide laws

Joseph P. Riley Jr. stated, People come here and they get ripped off or someone says, Well, Ill give you a tour, and they dont have the basic knowledge and give you a bunch of bum information that they eventually find that was bogus ..."

Pfffft. People come to Charleston and eat terrible food everyday and Joe isn't worried about the city's culinary reputation. Let the free market decide what tours sink or swim.

Besides, that test is an embarrassment. There is virtually no history about Africans or African Americans - you know, the people that constituted the majority population into the 20th century. The test is a reflection of what the old ladies in the preservation society value: the homes and gardens of rich people.

Then there's Ghost Tours. How in the wide, wide world of sports are you testing for the supernatural?

Here's an idea, Charleston: Come clean up the mess those horse carriages leave behind on my street and stop worrying about testing people on boxwoods and Adams architecture.
