Hi All,

We aren't going to take this topic down, or lock it. We did end up taking it out of the Active Topics list, as we were concerned that new members would see this first, and perhaps get swayed away from joining the community due to it's "rant" aspect.

We sincerely understand the relevance of the Covid-19 conversation, as it deeply affects everyone. We will put it back into the active as long as it says informative and respectful. We know how personal this can become.

Many thanks,

The Mods

Edited to say that mods were typing at the same time. My comments were similar so I removed that part.

I think anyone who believes conspiracies believes conspiracies in general and for whatever reason they will not be logical. It is just the way they think. Some do it just to be contrary or to sound unique and clever and some are suspicious of everything but I don't spend too much time trying to change that mindset. It is futile.

Wrenn, the mods are going to let it stay here. You are still free to post in STEAM ROOM about it if you want to. The mods didn't take it out of there. I made the new post to let it be its own topic because it seemed that others' posts about their anger on other topics were being pushed away.

I hope everyone here is glad I asked for it to be its own topic so we can all post about this here and go back to the other rooms to post about other things.

Mods,

I truly don't understand why you just suddenly hid it. Did you think no one would notice?

You've made sudden, significant changes before, but this might top it given how important this topic is.

We are not children.

I don't care to discuss it further. Just wanted to let you know that "Thanks, Mods" doesn't feel right.

I was given a DNR/DNI to sign when covid broke out. Nobody here is going to be put me on a ventilator because with lung mets I'd likely never get off & what, they're going to give me a lung transplant? No ef way.

so I damned well hope that I serconverted enough & I'm still being careful by adding additional layers. Rationing of healthcare happens for all sorts of reasons. Let's not kid ourselves - some lives are more valuable than others :'(

Breakthrough cases are occuring as a result of 2 things:

reduced serconversion (due to immune issues)

and

high circulating case counts <---- & this is the fault of people who are not taking the layers of precautions seriously. ALL the layers. Vax, mask, social distance, bubbles, avoid large gatherings, don't be around people with resp infections.

If there is little virus around, the risk is low. If there is tons. the risk is high. Allowing it to "rip through communities" results in deaths. People seem to have different opinions about how many and what kind of deaths are acceptable and what kind we should try to avoid.

oh & just a note about waning immunity from an Isreali study preprint : ".. people 60 years or older fully vaccinated in March 2021 ... were 1.7 (CI: [1.0, 2.7]) times more protected against severe COVID-19 compared to those who fully vaccinated in January 2021" https://www.gov.il/BlobFolder/reports/vaccine-effi...

- immunity faded significantly if vaccinated 3 months earlier.. hence the whole booster shot thing

(age is also a risk factor for lowered immunity)
