Well this is just great ...
Dr. Fauci to receive additional security following threats
You can say that again.
Whacko ppl...like that guy with the train out in LA
There's a nutjob for every situation.
It was designed for differing opinions, but...it has changed. The only reason they aren't going after you is because you're a mod.
Fever, if you're reading, come back soon, Sir.
Maybe he's here but he changed his screen name. Would you really want to be called Fever right now? FYI, I have to have my temperature taken before go back to work next week.
Was Fauci at the briefing today?
And a Trump tweet that backfires on him.
This will become an axiom for all time
Well..maybe. but I also try not to be a conspiracy theorist. That helps.
I am also not a bling apologist for the current POTUS. I frankly dont like him. He does get some over the top treatment just like Obama did.
But being willing to admit the flaws in "your" guy helps people take you seriously.
That said, a few do go after me...but I actually try hard to have fair and objective conversations.
There are still plenty on both sides that enjoy that here.
I have no idea why one posters opinion, though isolated and unpopular, was met with such vitriol. Even then, it was a small minority.
I disagree with Tilly at times as I do with many on this this board.
But Tilly's post are generally thought out and not just throwing crap out and slithering away. If you do that, you will generally catch crap.
Can't believe I wore a mask yesterday... on a U.S. street in a U.S. city... can't believe I'm even typing this.
I'm fixing to go out to the curb to bring in my garbage container. I guess I should wear a glove, since the container was handled by a garbage man whose glove could have more than garbage on it.
I assume that the air between my house and the curb is still safe. But I'm not even sure of that, since I had to tell some punks to get off my lawn.
People are entitled to different opinions. Not so much different facts.
When a poster spams a forum almost exclusively with tweets from liars and scoundrels, that isn't just "having an opinion", it's something else. A poster that behaves like that is either wayyyyyyyyyyy out there on the paranoia spectrum, or has to be completely disingenuous/trolling. There really is no middle ground.
This forum was supposed to have rules about "sources" to keep the discussions centered on reality. I think spamming/trolling is a pretty universal rule on forums such as these. Not sure why they didn't seem to apply to that guy. I eventually had to block him, which is something I'm loathe to do (that was literally the 1st time I've ever blocked someone on a forum). As Tilly pointed out - the issue wasn't so much any particular post breaking a rule. It was more of a cumulative effect of posting misinformation. Something I have no idea if the mods ever addressed. It's one thing to post a rumor and then look for the facts to confirm. But his schtick historically is to just keep doubling down on the twitter trolls as sources. If you were around in the 2016 election you'd realize it wasn't the first time. I know I'm not the only one here that suspected it was actually a spambot or Russian troll. You didn't?
Where do you buy your weed?
Dr. Fauci says it's 'mind-boggling' that any of China's wet markets are still operating
According to this Australia 60 Minutes piece, the government did crack down. Apparently some of the ones still in operation are controlled by the Chinese Mob. Is their government afraid of their mob or is it simply corruption?
