The board has clear directions on how to get a thread deleted and that is to email me and ask for deletion. Did "scientist" follow the procedures as outlined here for years? I have received no email. Instead "Scientist" comes on here and tries to denigrate me personally as well as my profession.
I see you have posted all over this board under various names (I just looked you up) and the reality is that I personally agreed with most if not all your posts. That doesn't change how the board policy is followed. If you want something removed you need to contact me by email, same as it has always been, with your reasons for wanting something deleted.
This is the first time someone has complained about these discussions on here. I didn't really give them a second thought and frankly find them almost comical and assume most intelligent people view them the same way. I just read through these, as well as what I see on Facebook, and shake my head. Even Facebook leaves most of the crazy posts up there and just put a link to COVID-19 Information right below them.
I see it every day. Am I supposed to be more heavy handed than Facebook? Is that really my place? Do you really know anything about me and what I stand for? If you did you would have been handling your concerns in a much more effective manner.
PS: I personally follow the "rules" out there in the real world, including all the rules the state/nation/world is implementing to try to tame this beast. I can't control how the minds of others think and I don't try to. Not my place but maybe it is yours? I am way past the point in life where I thought I could change a person's emotional thoughts with an analytical response. I hope this helps.
