    ^^^ "Coronavirus in America and Europe" (something like that ) but what about the rest of the world.

    Most other forums would have a separate forum section just for containment so the Covid-19 threads don't spread everywhere ;-)

    I did a play on the "Manufacturing in America and Europe" section, where most of the rants happen, since most of those CV threads have gone political, some more than others.

    Something like the "Rumpus room " idea … of any length. (some kind of "Bot" for cleaning up super threating and ultra racist sentiments (unfortunately) would still be required.).

    Some folks are really freaking out and the only way they have to let off steam / worries is to go into the "Online" boxing ring / moshpit.

    That's not for everybody but a place where toxic people like to do toxic things is not such a terrible idea.

    I've even thought there should be a grudge match boxing ring at IMTS ROFL.

    But can't do that anymore (Obvi. ;-) ).

    If this forum had a linking feature that would help with some of the topic based navigation across threads.

    I get it now :-)

    It's a tricky one,

    That's why the royal family only discuss the "Weather" out in public with the "Pleeeeebs" as topics related to "Religion, Politics and Money" essentially have the capability to divide all "Men". (No matter what).

    However some seek to be deliberately devicive. (sp).

    On some technical forums I'm on anything political is looked down on big time and gets locked.

    But with manufacturing and global manufacturing it's impossible to remove the "Political" or "Policy based" element at scales locally and globally. (beyond angry older men trying to put the world to wrights ).



    I'm oddly sympathetic to someone/ something like EG's plight etc. and understand that the "Eye" of the state has an extremely hard gaze, saving face and towing the party line is paramount to an extreme degree especially if one is a foreign national interacting in foreign "spaces".

    However there is case to suppress true "Propaganda" as essentially a sub category of 'Spam".

    Forgive my language as I can't find a better way to explain this... for example if someone is forced to spread the "Knob cheese" of a certain SE Asian dictator all over a forum much like a fungus that then spreads everywhere THEN that should be considered "SPAM" and thusly deleted or GHOSTED... I.e. Ghosted in the sense the poster doesn't know that his posts can't be read per say by most everyone else but could be readable to a smaller sub group that can interact. [On some interfaces there's a complex tiered or layered way of handling that .].

    There are limits. [Guidelines could be drawn up for excessive propaganda. An effective rule set can be drawn up that is fair to all and not discriminate against any particular individual and yet eliminate anything that constitutes persistent and pervasive* manipulation on a broad scale ~ for whatever purpose .].

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ __

    * To the point of being excessive / pathological.

    Boundaries are good that's what keeps people safe.

    Re: If you'r home alone running a surface grinder you can't catch the virus.
    I have to admit there's something to be said for different sand pits.

    It should not be the case that those with the thickest skin and moderately skilled in "Counter arse hole-ishness" should have the greatest "Freedom" on this forum.

    Toxic people ARE toxic.

    How you create "safe spaces" or "safer spaces" is up to the moderator / owners of the forum.

    Some forums "self regulate" pretty well and some don't.

    IF you specify a rule set (like what you set out @michiganbuck) as a header for the thread , then that might be a pretty good solution.

    I.e. the intent and scope of the thread starter without being overly controlling but with an emphasis on "Playing nice" or not being politically motivated. so in theory anything that is in violation of the header scope could be legitimately deleted as being "Off topic".

    Have you read the book "The Invisible Rainbow"? IIRC it talks about how the 1918 flu could not be transferred from person to person.

    We were taught the influenza started where a USA military base burned a big pile on manure/poop.

    but who knows

    I read that there is no vaccine for any virus ..who knows again.

    The deadly "Spanish flu" claimed more lives than World War I,

    Re: The Spanish flu (also known as the 1918 flu pandemic) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic. Lasting from January 1918 to December 1920, it infected 500 million people – about a quarter of the world's population at the time.

    QT:The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. Although there is not universal consensus regarding where the virus originated, it spread worldwide during 1918-1919. In the United States, it was first identified in military personnel in spring 1918.

    It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States. Mortality was high in people younger than 5 years old, 20-40 years old, and 65 years and older. The high mortality in healthy people, including those in the 20-40 year age group, was a unique feature of this pandemic.

    another QT :The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide—about one-third of the planet’s population—and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims, including some 675,000 Americans.

    PBS program: Frontline - China Undercover

    A special undercover report from China's secretive Xinjiang region. Investigating the Communist regime's mass imprisonment of Muslims, and its use and testing of sophisticated surveillance technology against the population.

    7am EST (Wed 08, 2020)

    Why is this program being aired now? I know why. As if it was already prepared.

    Epoch Times has been reporting about this stuff for years.

    Cast your vote after watching. Good luck to those who think this is all happening by chance.

    Enjoy davidR8 and atomarc. LOL

    I've been tracking the "Harvesting " of organs thing for a number of years now. Nothing surprises me anymore. (This dystopian science fiction novel that 1/4 of the planet now lives in and the rest of the world connected to it.).

    The Red Market: On the Trail of the World's Organ Brokers, Bone Theives, Blood Farmers, and Child Traffickers: Scott Carney: 9780061936463: Amazon.com: Books

    "The Red Market" by Scott Carney. <--- "(On the Trail of the World's Organ Brokers, Bone Theives, Blood Farmers, and Child Traffickers ).

    ^^^ Very good read / real page turner, excellent journalism + medical science.

    It's funny the seemingly tin foil hat theories of various labs don't seem so tin foil hat exactly anymore.

    Google about for "Bat Woman"

    How China's "Bat Woman" Hunted Down Viruses from SARS to the New Coronavirus - Scientific American

    ^^^ Scientific American ; Sadly Shi Zhengli has "Disappeared" (not like being pushed out of a helicopter in a south American jungle "Disappeared" , but more like all traces of existence having been erased.

    Sh*t happens... ( no conspiracies required) - stuff gets bungled.

    Can we have champions ? In skimpy bikinis ? And mud ? Lots of mud ?

    Whooo boy, I could only wish to be that important. Hang on a sec, I'll polish up that tin hat for you .... I honestly hate to admit this but the eye of the state has a lot more important things to do than watch me.

    Besides which, no one has ever shut me up anyway. Even myself.

    You guys are self-deluded. Come to China, walk around, it's not what you believe. Doesn't even resemble what you believe.

    It's okay. They have books in the library. It's not dangerous in there, promise. The old lady librarians are very nice.
