    The Mods won't save you, kid.

    Don't play with fire, or you might get burnt.
    You’re the one who ran away from answering my question to you and instead latched on to my post in here in a personal attack.

    But yeah I wont try to get your sorry ass kicked out. Just asking the question why some personal attacks are allowed and others AOK

    Seems to me that you were butthurt because you had no answer so instead vindictively attacked me in here.

    But buzz off dipshit.

    You know, I was always leering of moderations years ago.

    But as the l00ny misinformation creep metastasizes and accelerates across all media streams, I've changed my mind. There's just too many gullible or malignant people.

    Bravo mods.

    generally speaking, personal attacks have always been ok. I can call you a fucking asshole/dipshit/whatever without moderation. Threats of violence are not allowed, but that's more than just a personal attack. And racist bs and the like crosses a line too. Can you share what kind of moderator action you are referencing? Misinformation and trolling in the covid threads is not allowed, and Asspen is skating on thin ice there, but he can call you names and not get in trouble, and vice versa.

    Admittedly, we're not always 100% consistent, we're human. And we have non-TGR lives so sometimes someone can do something that deserves our attention, but it takes us a while to discuss it, and inertia or other shit or forgetfulness gets in the way and we don't act on something that might have been worthy of action. We do the best we can.

    funny you should ask but some servicemen are given an experimental HIV vaccine. i am not sure if it’s voluntary but the list of vaccines they are given is long, and that is just one of the experimental ones. And yet, I have never heard any protest about ‘experimental vaccines’ for any other illness. Weird, huh?

    The forcefield that vaccines are supposed to put around your body to prevent you from being sneezed on are NOT WORKING!!! All they seem to do is identify and fight infection once it enters your body. Worthless.

    But what does “2) No personal attacks” mean?

    There was no content in his post other than personal attack. In multiple posts.

    It's been stated over and over - personal attacks are fine. Personal attacks that include violence are not OK.

    montucky too dumb & too self-centered to realize that everyone is affected by the unvaccinated

    -hospitals challenged to meet demand
    -health care professionals stressed out & frustrated & getting ill because of the unvaccinated
    -the unvaxxed continue to feed the virus by being available to carry it & allow it to propagate variants
    -kids can't go to school safely, which fucks up parents ability to work, including teachers
    -parents who can't work add to the decrease in production across industries, which drags the economy
    -old people who are vaxxed are still at risk given any number of comorbidities
    -people who legitimately can't get vaxxed are still in danger from the percolation of the virus in the community
    -long covid is a significant issue if it's you who gets it; or say your mom; or your friend; or your grocer; or your dentist

    don't get him wrong, tho -- he cares, and is just joking when he posts stupid stuff that promotes poor decisions regarding public health

    Thanks Mods. Fuck those Rockers.

    Joking is hard to swallow for some here while people are dying. True gallows humor is ok.

    Who the fuck knows if this hearsay is true.
    I hope it is.

    ===============


    The director of global infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital is predicting what was unthinkable less than a month ago: The end of the pandemic.

    Dr. Edward Ryan made stunning and encouraging comments on the Omicron variant that give hope for a return to normalcy. Among these: Omicron will make boosters unnecessary. The covid virus will join the ranks of the “common cold.” And the latest wave will enter “clean up mode” shortly.

    “We are fighting the last war with COVID and should be pivoting back to normal life,” the summary of Dr. Ryan’s comments states. “Spring/Summer will be really nice!”

    Dr. Ryan is professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School and professor of immunology and infectious diseases at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He also directs the Tropical and Geographic Medicine Center
    and Travelers’ Advice and Immunization Center, which is supported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    His comments come from an undated summary (see full text below) of a conference call with Ryan that was shared last weekend among doctors and provided to me.

    In response to a request for comment, Massachusetts General Hospital issued a statement acknowledging that Dr. Ryan’s remarks had been shared “from an individual’s personal notes.”

    “These notes lack context, details, and nuance,” the statement said, noting they fail to reflect “the role that vaccines play in mitigating severe disease or death,” or to note that at-risk people should “continue to take extra precautions.”

    Significantly, the statement did not take issue with the accuracy of the conference call summary, which I had forwarded to both Ryan and media officials. Ryan did not respond to requests for comment.

    Assessing the situation in the Boston region, Ryan said that close to 100 percent of cases were Omicron.

    “Delta is almost completely gone from New England,” the notes said, meaning, significantly, that a more deadly variant has been displaced by a far milder one.

    “This surge will peak [in New England] sometime between 1/10 and 1/21 and then begin a quick downhill journey of two to four weeks,” the summary of the call stated.

    Perhaps the most surprising, and potentially controversial, statement from the call notes pertained to Ryan’s take on boosters for Omicron.

    “We won’t need a booster for omicron because they wouldn’t be able to develop one before it’s completely gone and we’re all going to get it which will give us the immunity we need to get through it,” the summary states.

    The booster statement is particularly startling in view of the near universal mainstream medical support for vaccinations and boosters, including for children as young as five years old.

    Ryan allayed fears of rising hospitalizations. “Most of them are secondary admissions,” the summary states, meaning people admitted for something else but who test positive for Omicron.

    SARS-CoV-2 will be transformed by Omicron, the comments suggest.

    “COVID will join the 4 other coronaviruses we deal with that cause the common cold, upper respiratory infections, RSV, etc.,”
