    Enough now.

    You are all going round in circles and it's becoming tiresome and unnecessary. Artoo has summed up my thoughts nicely.

    I think it's time to close this thread as it has fulfilled its purpose - if you want to carry on discussing this subject then I would suggest you find another place online.

    WOW, I'm totally shocked about the intolerance towards emotional diversity here. I'm also disappointed after all the times I've patiently explained things and even written songs to raise awareness on this topic, which still seems to be disregarded in our society. I guess it makes sense not to look into this thread for a week or two and then see how I want to proceede from there.

    Timmy you’re confusing attitude and opinion.

    We all know your opinion and that it won’t change, but please remember Covid-19 is a pandemic and many millions of people have lost their lives from a virus that didn’t exist three years ago. Our community here has been impacted, and where we can, have supported each other through the various tough times. You also know that members of this community have suffered terrible personal loss because of this virus.

    Your attitude when posting about Covid-19 is becoming more problematic than your opinions. It is one thing to have a difference of opinion, but something entirely different to not care about the power of the words you chose to use when expressing yourself. Your words are not sensitive. Your words are not kind. If asking you to be compassionate is too hard a task, then just don’t post in the thread.

    If we were co-workers and had such strikingly different views on things, I'd just say 'You do you and I do I.'. Everyone on here knows that I'm nice to everyone on here and enjoy having conversations irrespective of whether they have the same or totally different views on things than me. I have, however, learned not to adjust myself to please other people. I am always authentic here with my pragmatic way of seeing things and all. So if people like me the way I am, that's cool and I appreciate that. If people don't like me the way I am, then I hope that they will learn to take me as I am over the course of time, though I of course can't and won't force that process.

    I have read all the statistics and news on Covid as well as heard and read reports from people who've gone through infections. After two years, I know what I'm talking about, and I won't change my attitude on that topic.

    Yeah as long as people don't diminish such an awful desease, who has killied millions an devastated entire families, to not being a real problem, it's okay to call them ,plain and simple, what they are in their essence : HORRIBLE HUMAN BEINGS .
    I don't care for this old and tired rhetoric and play of words about others not "accepting different opinions".
    Some things are not a matter of opinion.
    Some things are just unacceptable and should be shut down.
    You know who also used to have a different opinion back in his day? Hitler.
    You are just a horrible person Timmy and I don't even care to be banned or something ,do you know why? Cause it's a shame for a place Ike this to accept all the horrific things you say - including racist,xenophobic, misogynistic, homophobic and other remarks- on a daily basis while trying to disguise it as "freedom of speech" or "I just have a different opinion than yours, learn to deal".
    I won't come back to this thread cause every time I read a post of yours I feel like I'm going to vomit and I mean it.
    I don't even care to report you anymore cause,apparently, whatever you write is accepted so,I must the wrong one here.
    BUT between being wrong and being who I am and being right and being who you are,I don't hesitate for a single second on being the person I am.
    These are my final words on this matter regardless of the bullshit you or anyone who falls for your antics and support you may reply to me.
    You're simply not worth it anymore.

    Yeah, as long as people don't call others out or pull them down by not reacting how they thought they would be and accuse them of a lack of empathy, that's fine.

    Differing opinions are fine but can we retain some level of sensitivity please.

    BodyShop : Accept that people see things in a different way! At this point, I'm not writing essays on this anymore but simply refer to my song.

    Lol
    #1) it's not about debating. It's a fact. Who downgrades a desease that has killled MILLIONS around the whole globe (and keeps killing -especilly those like you ,who refuses to believe in the science) to not being a real problem, is a horrible person. Period.
    2) Coming from you it's a compliment. Thank you very much, babe .

    Weren't you banned for posting insensitive comments and you still haven't learned a thing cos you're still doing it. Suggesting that corona virus was not a real problem when 6 million people died, including family of members here Is a complete disgrace and is certainly in no way grown up. Of course he knows what he's doing.

Austria dropping the vaccination mandate and other countries completely giving up their measurements and being successful at it probably added to it.

    Coronavirus and the horrible situation in Ukraine have got nothing to do with each other. One does not cancel out the other so can you just stop making false equivalences and tragically trolling. You think you're so slick with your "for once" expression and using italics on the word "real". Grow up eh.

    No one is a bot for having different views on things.
    Bots are the ones advertising something in their first post, preferably in non-English, or bumping up threads no one's written in for years only to post something totally random in there.

    Have the mods bothered to check her IP address? I've always had a feeling she was a Russian bot.

    London is doing fine.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) numbers in London


    Last updated: Thursday 10 March, 09:300am
    Key points:
    • On 09 March 2022 the daily number of people tested positive for COVID-19 in London was reported as 6,706
    • On 09 March 2022 it was newly reported that 7 people in London died within 28 days of a positive COVID-19 test
    • In the most recent week of complete data (26 February 2022 - 04 March 2022) 30,214 new cases were identified in London, a rate of 336 cases per 100,000 population. This compares with 29,553 cases and a rate of 328 for the previous week
    • On 09 March 2022 there were 91 COVID-19 patients in mechanical ventilation beds in London hospitals. This compares with 97 patients on 02 March 2022.

    Considering the city has a population between eight and nine million people, we’re doing fine and any increase is negligible.

    They tested the sewage in NYC. More Covid is being detected.

    Keep your masks on. I'm still wearing mine.

    That difference may be the case because triple vaccinated people get tested less as measurements like 2G+ only require double vaccinated people to get tested additionally. If less triple vaccinated people get tested, less of the asymptomatically infected people even know that they are infected.
