  1. Nugget of truth 😆. That’s my whole point. Big ban crusades and shutting down topics is capitulating to the trolls. Moderating a forum takes time and energy. It’s hard. Joe can come down as heavy-handed as he likes. Without serious time investment the result will be the same. Trolls win. They’re just winning in a slightly different way. I’m not saying he and the moderators should invest the time. Not my call. I don’t think I would. I’m just calling a spade a spade .
  2. No you don’t. I’m sure you would like to, but you don’t have the time. I actually think *you* care. Your moderators don’t. It’s a mindless, thankless job. They go to the first thing reported and ban/no ban. Nobody wants to wade through piles of garbage for the other super lame comment that started it. You’re not sorry. I’m not sorry. That’s just the way it is.
  3. Baloney. Everybody knows who they are. Fixing it takes diligence by the moderators, not mindlessly throwing around bans. Your direction is part of the problem. When you come down heavy-handed with no sense or care for context you just make the problem worse. The trolls don’t care. You ban them and they come back with a different name. The people they do care just leave because nobody really gives a ####, including the moderators. If you don’t have time to control your forum, put your big boy pants on and shut it down. It’s perfectly understandable. We all have better things to do than babysit.
  4. China had known about it since November and there were already thousands of cases by mid-January. China was just clamping down on information release. The WHO called a pandemic in mid-March
  5. Yet they did, and the WHO followed. On January 14th. "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus(2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China,"
  6. China hid the virus, destroyed samples, jailed doctors that spoke out, and scrubbed information up until the virus had already spread out of the country. You are free to lavish them with praise, but I certainly will not. Their selfishness caused all of this. The WHO claimed there was no evidence of person-to-person transmission in mid-January and failed to announce a pandemic until March. The day before we declared a national emergency. If anything, we put way too much credence in the WHO.
  7. I know in CA different hospitals have different standards. Anything run through the counties takes significantly longer and requires specific symptoms and/or underlying health/age considerations. Hospital networks with their own labs can do more testing, faster.
  8. I don’t think any country realized that the WHO was simply parroting China until the virus had already spread globally.
  9. Information on this is all over the news in several countries. It’s not really a head scratcher at all. Why are you even trying to sort out the motivations of people stupid enough to eat fish tank cleaner?
  10. It’s all a function of testing. South Korea and Germany have by far the most testing, but even then, it’s still sub 1% of their population. You’re so eager to jump on people you aren’t even reading anymore.
  11. It doesn’t really matter. It’s all a function of testing. South Korea and Germany have by far the most testing, but even then, it’s still sub 1% of their population.
  12. The small business money should help people stay employed. The corporate money should do the same. I don’t know what the limitations are though.
  13. I’m close to that. I get great coverage, but it’s definitely not cheap.
  14. They can be cleaned already. The equipment just isn’t that common and they can’t do a lot at a time. Part of the problem is the masks don’t always fit the same when reused.
  15. There is no way I believe anything coming out of China. They have lied non-stop on matters pertaining to the virus. There were pictures last week of one Wuhan morgue getting a delivery of 10K+ urns.
  16. They tested comprehensibly compared to others, but it’s still at less than 1% of their total population. You think only 1% of South Korea had the virus?
  17. Cuomo made the call to keep schools and mass transit open on March 12th. He finally closed schools on the 15th, but the subways were still completely open. He only recently finally started cutting back subway service. That was waaaaaay too late.
  18. He walks a fine line with a lot of his posts. It’s not surprising he’s getting a TO. I can’t imagine this is his first.
  19. Gallup has him at 60%. There really isn’t a need to grab obscure pollsters.
  20. It’s pretty accurate. Not sure what your issue is.
  21. Oh come on. Were supposed to have clandestine medical operators in Wuhan? You’re being ridiculous.
  22. PC. There should be at least two types of video ports. You may need an adapter. Then right-click the desktop and set up dual monitors in the video settings. I assume you want to clone them.
  23. There should still be multiple ports. Are you trying to connect wirelessly? You could use chromecast for that.
  24. They could have been substantive. They wouldn’t have been accurate though. The WHO was still sticking with the China line through mid-January. China was the primary source of data and they were flat out lying to the WHO.
