I might suggest the 'other' forum TBYNet if you really want to discuss Covid and have a thick skin. The Sub Forum on TBYNet, 'Top News Talk' or TNT as we refer to it is the place to discuss it without any moderator making pronouncements. There are rules like any forum has but they are pretty simple.

You will have to register on it, even if you are a TBYNet member and choose a screen name which can be your TBYNet screen name if you so choose.

Been on TBYNet for at least 20 years and no, I don't use my screen name on TNT.

Be apprised it's a forum for thick skinned posters, onions need not go there because you will be instantly butt hurt.......

You have something to say, that is THE place to air it.

The Poll above is a biased poll with denigrating title; should simple read leave this thread open or close it. Personal feelings shouldn't be involved. Be honest about your intentions, and if you are a moderator (don't know who listed the poll) have the fortitude to close it instead of starting another arguing point. CENSORSHIP IS A SIGN OF A WEAK ARGUMENT.

Right.

And I guess they are looking for name calling and mud slinging now? I haven't called any names yet, although I have been called a few on this thread.

Remember when we were told by a bunch of scientists and doctors that covid lasted on most surfaces for weeks?

And then on a back page, you get the facts.


Can you contract the coronavirus disease from a package in the mail?
Coronaviruses are thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Although the virus can survive for a short period on some surfaces, it is unlikely to be spread from domestic or international mail, products or packaging.Jul 15, 2020
Coronavirus (COVID-19) frequently asked questions


There were people on this thread not touching mail, packages etc. because of the BAD information spread by the "professionals" and MSM. Even going so far as baking their cash in the stove - SMH.

And there in lies the rub. If you have a "I need gloves to touch the mail" understanding and it is based on BAD information, you need to know the truth, not just blindly follow along with "you need gloves to touch your mail" mantra.

I was chastised/warned for using the word "cupcake". Talk about thin skin.
Well technically that is name calling. I used Lemming when what I really meant was gullible. I think we are all guilty of it at some point.

Some people think saying a person is gullible is name calling - SMH. How about if I said you were really perceptive?

See, that's exactly the problem. Fauci has been so inconsistent with his "opinions" and that's all they are since he hasn't been a Dr. for years (one who lays on hands). CDC is compromised politically by the deep state as well as WHO. CAN'T believe much of anything coming from them. Actual hands on Dr'ing is being suppressed especially concerning hydroxychloroquine. Mostly it's political IMO, there's far to many physicians that applaud hydroxychloroquine for it not to be of benefit.

Actually here's my quote " I got news for all the cupcakes "; I wasn't referring to an individual.

I am just very pleased that the Swedish approach has proven to be no worse than any other steps to deal with this new flu. !

No comment on the poll. I know 100% where I stand and I'll leave it at that.

I invite everyone to TNT. There you can fling all the mud you want to but you'll get it right back so be ready for an education. Some very 'astute' mud flingers on there. Lots of political ranting too. Name calling an insults are ok so long as it's subtle..... :D

Muhammed personally moderates the forum btw. It's his 'pet' forum.

Yea we won't be going the way of TBN!

Yea I made the poll...
How would you like me to title it?

Now it was me personally dealing with this I would simply close the thread and ban a few members and be done with it... but alas, no I have to be the moderator, my personal choices are not at play here, the complaints of the masses are.
I've received nothing but report after report on peoples language and behavior, it's getting a bit old!

This report is two months old now, but should be credible. It seems to be to provide hope for anyone who comes down with covid 19, and in the at risk group particularly.

1. I surmised you did the poll and I have no intention of participating in it. Don't care one way or another how you title it because it's a non starter for me.

2. Don't care who you ban, you can ban me for all I care. Having been on TBN for over 20 years now and with TNT being available to discuss Covid freely (as well as other political subjects without fear or retribution from some moderator (in this case you) there is really no reason for me to discuss Covid on here. I may make a comment infrequently but that is about it.

Far as YOU personally visiting TBN/TNT, I don't think you will though I suspect you are a registered member on the site (I've never checked and don't really care to). No reason for you to go there anyway.

I don't much cotton to 'reporting anyone to you or any upper echelon staff unless it's a blatant violation like spam. Don't much care what anyone posts. If I don't like the content and it's repetitive, I simply put the poster on IGNORE. I have a number of them in the queue right now. No big deal.

I find 'reporting' anyone to be childish. That crap went on in school. I'm way past school at 70.

3. If it's getting 'old', you have 2 distinct choices. One, lock the thread or two, ignore the thread entirely and disable the 'report function'. You can do the disable in the forum software.

I find the 'poll' you posted to be interesting in as much as to me it appears to be a conduit for you to justify shutting down the thread which again, I don't much care about. Your show, play it as you wish. There are other forums with Covid threads that anyone can participate in and TNT happens to be one of them. Another is the Smith and Wesson Forum, just all depends on your politics where you go.

Have fun.

Just a thought - Put it into perspective. With over 41,000 members on OTT, only 16 total bothered to vote on the poll one way or the other. Sure doesn't look like something considered a "Hot Button" to most people.

Geez where where you when there where a few members here wishing death sickness and financial ruin on other members for our differing opinion on masks? Didnt hear a peep.

Or what about sidecar who, on several occasions, talked about shooting people who got too close? Didnt hear a peep.

But oh boy, a couple people call out sheepfarmer for her radical leftist view and hypocrisy and all the sudden......TIME TO SHUT DOWN!!!

lol
Uh, didn't that happen during the transition to the new forum software? As I recall North Idaho Wolfman didn't have complete access to the site.
