EtcetEraThread Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces
Reason User banned (2 weeks): Thread derail, attacking the community, inflammatory accusations
A lot of Era users consider themselves to be good stand up people. Pride flags, strong left wing views, posting on Era in support of progressive issues etc. Then make a complete show of themselves in threads like this over, and over, and over again. Not as well natured and mannered as they like to think, and definitely don't like being called out on it. Some of the posts in this thread are a disgusting embarrassment and at this point it is expected. Ghoulish is absolutely the right term.

Not at all. Just others to show some decency. The man had his faults, that is for certain, but he was overwhelmingly a positive force, particularly in the lives of young people. A wife of seventy years, his children and family lost someone special to them today. There is a time and a place to be a fool, but it is disrespectful in the thread announcing his death.

EtcetEraThread Black Americans flock to gun stores and clubs: 'I needed to protect myself' - Gun ownership among Black Americans is up 58.2%
Reason User Banned (duration pending review): dismissive commentary over a series of posts
I'm not here to be anyone's ally, your country sees us as a tributary state for it to plunder, so its cool with me whatever you choose to do (i just hope individuals in it dont suffer for it obviously), but I keep up with news in general and the US is the cultural hegemon (even more so black American culture). And your comment could literally be extended to anything that is culture related (dont talk to Europeans about race relationships they have their own history!, dont talk to Russians about corruption, they have their own history!) Maybe take the opportunity to look at a perspective not clouded by the fog of your own culture (like how Europeans should do so with Racism) It is a fact tho that saying "i dont trust statistics, i trust my gun to feel safe" is Anti-intellectualism and that it is a cultural prerogative that the US is currently exercising (both from the right and the left), same as how guns are culturally accepted, and I made a comment about that, simple as.I wouldnt have black americans do anything (because im not american or black), im not proposing solutions to your issues, im just commenting on the anti-intellectualism revolving around it.

I would rather do things that actually helps than to do things that do more damage.It's more like: The young and healthy exposes themselves to the risk to help protect the old and frail. It's ok that you disagree with me about this. I wish you all good luck trying to stop the virus. The risk of dying if you are under 50 is extremly small. Just follow the recommendations of the FHM and accept the fact that you will probably be infected (or maybe already have been). There is always a risk that you will get very ill but every day we exposes ourselves to risks. When we have herd immunity it will protect the rest.

We both don't know what happened, but don't try to gaslight me into thinking drug abuse is completely unlikely to be the culprit in this case.

Reason User Banned (3 weeks): inflammatory accusations and commentary surrounding gun violence
Not perfect, obviously, but better than waiting on all the broken promises to fix policing, let alone economic racism. Anti-gun fundamentalism hasn't done shit for anybody, and neither has the tunnel vision on gun ownership only being possible on the level of the individual.Solidly stupid pronouncement when there's white supremacists marching and menacing people anytime they think they have an opening. But that's the 'progressive' way, pay lip service to the brutality of policing against minorities in one breath, and excoriate those same minorities when they have the gall to take steps to defend themselves and each other in the next. You're either with us or you're with the frothing NRA gun cultists!

EtcetEraThread Convince me to get vaccinated
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Further Review): Downplaying COVID severity, conspiracy rhetoric
Hey, so I'm really afraid of the vaccine. Much more than I am of COVID. At the start of all of this, I was pretty freaked out by COVID, and I thought many people I knew were going to die. But here we are 1 year later and I don't know a single person that got very sick from COVID, much less was hospitalized or died. I know a handful of people that had it, but their symptoms were basically nothing. There were many high-risk people I know that I was almost certain would get very sick and/or die, but it simply didn't happen (and most of these people were very careless in terms of taking the virus seriously). I myself, as an "essential worker," have had to be out in the world almost every day since this all started. I've been sick twice with cold/flu-like symptoms, but both times had negative COVID test results. I'm not an anti-vaxxer. I have all of my childhood vaccines for measles, mumps etc. And I get the flu shot every year. But the speed in which the vaccine was rolled out combined with the degree to which it is seemingly being pushed on the public is causing my paranoia to go into overdrive. I mean, much of the response to the pandemic has been insane in my opinion, but we don't need to go there. Basically, in the end, I don't trust the government. I have no idea what this vaccine will do to me, and I feel like it's largely unnecessary for me personally. But at the same time, it would be a relief to not have to worry as much about COVID anymore, and if it could protect others that would be nice. Yet if I get vaccinated, I feel like my worry would just shift to wondering what effect the vaccine will have on me in the future. It seems everyone here is very excited to get vaccinated, and I am happy for all of you who have been able to do so. Everyone in my family is vaccinated now, so I'm the only hold out. I just can't shake the feeling that there's something nefarious going on, so I don't know what to do.

If you wear a mask you signal that YOU are the one with symptoms, so that makes sense. Almost all cases seem happen within the family or at private social gatherings like weddings or parties , or at bars where a mask is not required in other countries either, not when people spend 5 minutes in a shop. Masks are not going to help there, because let's be honest, nobody is going to spend the evening at a barbecue with friends wearing a mask.

Reason User banned (3 days): Hostility
Interesting that you think there is some sort of fucking narrative to my post to begin with. This isn’t some fucking politics thread where it’s one side against the other, in case you missed the world is kinda fucked right no, maybe calm it with the accusations once in a while..? No wonder some of the old timers stepped away from this place recently with shit like this allowed to happen. God forbid you don’t tailor each and every post with multiple caveats and qualifiers. Accusing me of trying it on with narratives in the middle of a fucking pandemic, come the fuck on. You can definitely miss me with that shit. Guess what! No fucking narrative here, apart from the very real one that we are all, ALL in the shit equally until this first wave is done for. Until this thing is done for. The ‘narrative’ I supposedly laid out in my post. Hey, hey, hey what is interesting is that it is already being played out in governments across the world despite the so called narrative (must be fiction right?) I wrote. It’s absolutely shit for everyone living on this planet, but yeah, many governments with the support of vast majority of the respective populations will choose the lesser evil I posted about. My parents, relatives, sibling and even SO can be classed at risk. So yeah excuse me. Hell it’s already happening now with countries reopening. Really, no country should be opening up until the r number is around 0.2, like New Zealand has done and cut the R0 right down to size. Realistically many are opening up with the r number many degrees higher then that. BTW, I find it interesting how you fixated on the numbers I posted rather then the words around them. Very interesting indeed. So you agree with what I said then? I mean that’s the narrative I got from your post,right? Funny how that works. BTW, the numbers I posted are indeed on the low end of things, unrealistic even, but I did so purposefully not to cause alarm in an already fucked thread. But you know what, to satisfy your need to call me out for no apparent fucking reason, hey I‘ll add a good couple of zeros to the numbers I posted, yknow just to further push people into blind panic in this thread, ah but you MUST be accurate right? No room for reading the temperature in this thread. Just endless cynicism pessimism and bleakness in the disguise of keeping things real. BTW, I have, in multiple posts, threads and discussions already on here many times CLEARLY stated about in between measures and the new normal we all need to live with until a treatments and a vaccine is found. I expressed support for them many times and even posted multiple suggestions. I already stated it’s a dial like system when it comes to shutdowns on this very forum, I mean my posts are open to all to read and trawl through. BTW, the false dilemma isn’t so false for many, many poor countries who literally cannot afford to lockdown for weeks if not months on end and the expect to open up slowly, it quickly becomes a matter of countless people starving on the streets and entire countries going bust. IMF isn’t getting loan applications from the likes of Pakistan for the fun of it just to fund its own fucking lockdown, with the PM effectively stating they cannot lockdown for long or take things slow as people will starve in the streets. Maybe check out the lockdown stories from the likes of Afghanista sometime? India? Pakistan? Somalia? Maybe don’t be blinded by first world thinking so much when it comes to a serious global issue that will and has affected everything and everyone.

Some of the points he is making: I have no idea if he is right or what he is basing this on. It would be interesting here what other epidemilogists thinks about what he is saying.

For information Luc Montagnier, nobel price 2008, just released the information that it is irrefutable the SARS-COV2 hosts a sequence copy of HIV (3% of the virus composition) , making it highly probable it was engineered in a research institute trying to build an HIV vaccine (there's a technique that consists of using a virus as host for part of another virus "code", in order to make the immune system produce antibodies targeting the molecules that will be fabricated by expression of this code, it's not warfare, just ... trying to make a vaccine... but you normally use a host virus you master fully and know can make harmless... which is not the case here) .
