Hello, Para. I have held off on posting in the coronavirus thread since responding to your post there, but that is a couple pages back now and I didn't want to start posting in the thread again without clarifying what is acceptable. I don't want to step on your toes. I've copied my response over there below.
I didn't say it would happen. I said it could, and explained why. An average of 30 million people in the US get the flu every year.
I am not panicked or hysterical, and regardless of the situation, I don't think hysteria serves any purpose and will always make things worse. I have been careful to talk about possibilities, not certainties (of which there aren't any). I have been careful to provide links to reputable sources for important points in my arguments. My position is that it's important that we take a critical look at what is happening and think about what it means, rather than just assuming that we know how it will turn out.
With all that said, I respect you, I enjoy being a member of this forum, and I know that it's your show. If you want me to stop posting in this thread, I will. Is that what you're asking, or just that I stop posting about projected outcomes?
Do you really think for one second that if I didn't want you posting, that I would have difficulty finding a way to express this to you? Just use your head.
Fair enough, thank you. I just wanted to make sure I stopped way short of crossing the line, and I wasn't sure how much "cut it out" applied to.
