COVID-19 and discussions of it


Recommended Posts

Hi all:

COVID-19 (the "coronavirus") is obviously impacting just about every life on the planet right now in very impactful ways.

It would be foolish of us to try to limit discussion of it, particularly as it impacts the NCAA tournament, the NBA season, and so many other issues we discuss here daily.

Instead, we'll reiterate two important points:

1) We don't discuss politics

That isn't to say we're banning discussion of public policy or governmental actions - posting, for example, that the school near where you live shut down is a benign and apolitical statement!  If you take it a step further, though, and say it's the rat bastard Democratic/Republican/etc Governor who has a plot to brainwash students - you're inherently making a political statement.

You all - wait - most of you are smart enough to know the difference.  If you aren't, we'll gently nudge you back to within the rules.

2) No personal attacks

On an issue where folks may have very different views of the severity of the virus or the quality of the public health response to it, it is vitally important to discuss your differences amicably.  Bluntly put: we're not here to tolerate any BS and we'll hand out temporary or permanent bans to folks violating this rule.

I'm not sure what the hell we're going to talk about, but I'm sure we'll figure it out.
