I'm not posting about Covid, but ATC doesn't allow any opinions that conflict with the accepted beliefs. No dissension allowed. This is not an attack on the Moderator of that forum, just a statement.

You could have just passed along without comment ya know!
likely they just want to protect us from having a discussion. Kind of like some people insist you should wear a face mask or three to protect the general population. I, on the other hand prefer to avoid threads I don’t like or care about and let those that do like them to post away. Very similar as to how I avoid people who are coughing with snot running out of their nose (something I wouldn’t be aware of if they were dutifully wearing a mask). Mask police and forum police are always out there.

Yes Covid is still out there. So is the flu, and common colds, and who knows what other viruses and such to do us harm.
I am vaccinated, so is DW. I prefer not to live my life in a bubble. Do what you must to keep youself healthy, but lets not ever ruin the nations economy again in the false idea that it will keep everyone healthy.
A little common sense would go a long way.

In any of these hobby forums,...there needs to be an element of entertainment,...IMO.
The problem is that many people enjoy being argumentative.

I had Covid early on when there weren't enough vaccines around. It wasn't too bad except I felt super tired for weeks afterwards. So I got my shots after having Covid.2 friends I go to breakfast with got their shots and later both contracted Covid and both ended up in the hospital. I believe having the virus gives you better immunity then the shot alone.

Three hundred and thirty million people in the U.S.A. Over one million have died . The way that I look at it , Ya walk into a room with 330 shotguns , only one loaded . You are told to pick up one at random , put it in your mouth and pull the trigger , odds are pretty good that you will survive . The other choice is to take a shot and you will not even have to enter that room !

My wife, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, and mother-in-law all got covid from a single visit to a "bad" location. Ages ranged from 50 + to 90+. All got better. I didn't go to the "infected spot", didn't get it from any of the relatives, but picked it up 7 months later from my boss (who is fully vaccinated and boosted) after his trip to Spain.

I'm neither vaccinated nor boosted and I look fondly back on when I was 60. Had a fever for a day and a cough for two weeks. That's it. Maybe I got lucky, maybe my analysis was accurate (anticipate more issues with vaccine than Covid), whatever.

My view is that folks should take what steps, if any, they feel are appropriate based on their situation, their doctor's input, and their analysis. Someone who gets the disease (whether vaccinated or not) should be the object of good wishes and care, not used as an example one way or the other.

Guess those Covid vaccinations and boosters really work. [emoticon]


My thoughts too. The shots and ALL the boosters combined were supposed to not prevent COVID, but make it less severe. Sounds like that didn't work for one poor guy here. My sentiments and wish for a full recovery.
