Just a few words to settle a few ruffled feathers,in a Thread, which was, after all, started by me
I started the Thread because I knew that a number of people, myself included, had a (sometimes emotional) need to share their experiences on the Pandemic that has changed not only the course of our lives, ended so many other lives, adversely impacted the economies of almost every nation it has touched, and so on.
After getting off to a slow start, the Thread picked up pace, and became more visible to the masses, not long after the diligent efforts of @MatsuShimizu
and others (all of whom I thank) started giving us an interesting picture of this unprecedented phenomenon.
That being said, this Forum and website is not designed to act as a scientific authority, and to prove this or disprove that.
That, in the judgement of Staff here, is best left where it SHOULD be, and that is in the province of reputable scientific and medical authorities, some of which have already been named here.
If you cant answer the question then please dont attack me and discriminate against me nor judge me just for not knowing something, hence asking the question.
I endorse that.
The rules for the Off Topic subforum can be found here, pinned to the top of the entry page
The part that I am responsible for providing begins with "Political".
The Rules for the site are not overly large, and they are here, and anyone who joined agreed to them in doing so.
...as i thought the whole purpose of these chat forums was for us that dont know something and those whom do know something to communicate such although i am rather new so i am just presuming prior that i could ask a question if i want the answer.
No, that could be seen as the mandate of the Support (for Linux) Forums and subforums. It is unreasonable to expect that of Off Topic, so I hope that explains.
