I know there are a substantial number of you guys who have appreciated my posts presenting the very latest in Covid science & medicine - almost always accompanied by a link to a very recent peer reviewed reference.

Out!

I'm glad you're staying ex, and truly appreciate all the info you've given.

To everyone: the name-calling (from both sides) has gotten worse the last few days, so let's try to rein it back in. It'd be great if it didn't descend to that, but it's where we're at. Mods have kinda just let this thread self-police itself and trust that everyone who engages knows what they're getting into and can handle it. And you have. It's been much more free-form than any other thread and we want to keep it that way.

Video of federal government telling us how mandating mask and vaccines are not legal and how it’s unconstitutional to ask if someone is vaccinated or not, but then again Trump was President so go figure

LOL, if you take a look at the individual ivermectin studies they are almost all flawed in some way. Results were not statistically significant. Experimental and control groups were too small. Many do not even mention the dosage of ivermectin given. Nor do they mention what other treatments were used or adjust for the placebo effect. If you want to understand the flaws, here you go: https://web.pdx.edu/~stipakb/download/PA555/ResearchDesign.html

What this research shows is that covid doesn't kill everyone and that early intervention helps. Duh.

Dr or not, you come across as an unhappy, angry person.

You can get your point across without calling people idiots and morons in every post.
You are trying too hard to prove a point. There are plenty of physicians and scientist who think the
opposite of you. That doesn't make them morons, nor those it make you one. Try being a little nicer
without attacking people. It's better for your health.

You are trying to educate and help people. But that the same time you come across as a person who dislikes
a lot of people and put people down and call them names on a regular basis. Being a professional doesn't
stop when you're off the clock.

All I just heard was “I’m better then everyone else, I more arrogant then everyone else, everyone should listen to me because I’m more intelligent than everyone else……o, and did I mention I’m a gigantic a$$ Hole?”

Don’t you worry. There will be massive numbers of alive, healthy, unvaccinated people in the years to come…..the narrative will continue to change from the top, because it will have to to save face. it already has. Since the vaccine doesn’t work it is now the unvaccinated people killing vaccinated people. Give me a **** break. Do you realize how stupid that sounds? Say it out loud. So why the **** would I ever get vaccinated if the vaccine doesn’t stop transmission, illness, death, or anything else. Not to mention we’re talking about a virus with a less than 1% mortality rate. And even that number is severely questionable.
By the way, what the **** are they even putting into your body? There are so many question marks and some (not all) of the guinea pigs are getting fired up because their shot doesn’t work. Now it’s my fault. What’s next?

What the **** else do you want to talk about??? You have verbally attacked me all damn day. I’m sick and tired of it. Are the mods going to do anything about it? Get the **** off this forum. You’re an arrogant ****.

I have a newsflash for you. Our world is filled with people from all walks of life. Different religious. Heck, maybe you’re an atheist. I don’t know. I’m a Christian. The list goes on. Different political beliefs. Different taste for food & music. Some people like blondes, some like blonde dudes. Doesn’t mean you get to aggressively come at them all day Ling because they believe differently then you, or feel differently about something then you.

This is why I said this entire thread was/is a bad idea. It’s like having a thread on religion or politics. It’s a recipe for disaster. It divides. This is a basketball forum, specifically here, a Celtics forum. That’s at least something we all enjoy and share. That’s where it should stay.

This thread has gotten pretty gross, and not to backseat mod but people are getting away with saying stuff that I am pretty sure should not be able to fly. There is supposed to be Zero Tolerance and Personal Attack policies isn't there? I personally disagree with pretty much every single thing ddb has posted regarding the actual topic, but people are being unnecessarily awful because they don't agree with him when he (for the large part) calmly put forth his own personal views.

I understand this is a really important issue, peoples lives are directly influenced or at risk from this virus and the decisions that both governments and individuals make around it. But I am pretty sure the next time someone changes their opinion/stance/belief on a polarising topic based on being attacked, insulted, belittled or abused by someone (or multiple people) with the opposing view, it will be the first time.

I have good friends who won't get vaccinated. I don't agree with their opinions/views, but we are still friends and can agree to disagree. Lets try that here. At the end of the day, we will all find out who is right; who is wrong; Or possibly we are all right, or all wrong for that matter. Being kind can go a long way in one's health. Unless, of course, you don't hit the accelerator when the light turns green; then, you are just an ***hole and no need to be kind to that person.

That's like asking why a basketball team should ever play defense if opponents are going to score sometimes anyway.

In fairness, for many diseases it is OK to believe in an oversimplified dichotomy -- they either prevent the disease or they didn't work, period. But for COVID, the middle case -- not preventing it but greatly reducing its severity -- is particularly important.

There is no chance any of this **** would be published in a prime time/reputable/meticulously peer reviewed journal.

The cows treated with ivermectin for worms have more medical insight regarding the science of Covid infection than our contingent of liberty-loving, public health-damaging, anti-vax, anti-mask & anti-social distancing morons.

The pandemic has revealed what many of us already knew - that a huge minority of the USA are mother **** idiots. Sad but true.

I do not wish serious illness on anyone ever (even the morons), but the Darwin effect is slowly weeding out the dumbest amongst us. Tragically, as you have pointed out several times, a small minority of vaccinated people (most of them either immunocompromised, possessed of co-morbidities or elderly who have responsibly done the right thing) will also suffer serious disease - a direct consequence of the irresponsible & callous stupidity of the unvaccinated horde. And variants worse than Delta will continue to emerge because of the unabated transmission, replication & mutation occurring predominantly in the same despicable horde. I pray that I am wrong - but I don’t think so.

The booster appears to be most advantageous in people over 60 - get it ASAP!

Thank you for your comment.

But you would be wrong.

I am usually a reasonably contented person.

I have posted many many polite educational posts appreciated by many of our posters.

And, today, I initially posted several very polite educational posts meant to better inform our uninformed contingent.

But then I did indeed snap a bit because I discovered that I simply cannot get through to some of these
people.

And I am therefore fed up & will stop trying.

And no, the vast majority of the most highly regarded ID docs, virologists, & epidemiologists on the planet agree with the excellent literature I am posting. LOL. It is their peer-reviewed publications in the best journals in the world that I am linking & summarizing.

PS In response to your last sentence, I will tone it down.

Fencer - excellent post.

I just highlighted your most important & cogent comment.

That is precisely one of the most important points the uninformed do not understand.

Thousands upon thousands more than the 1500 people currently dying every single day would be dying as well - if not for the vaccines.

Unfortunately, I am afraid I am correct, Can.

I wish I was wrong.

But, I will indeed tone it down.

I also do not plan to engage any further with our ‘uninformed subgroup.’

I will return to posting only the best science possible - as I have 95% of the time since Covid began.

So why the **** would I ever get vaccinated if the vaccine doesn’t stop transmission, illness, death, or anything else. Not to mention we’re talking about a virus with a less than 1% mortality rate. And even that number is severely questionable.
By the way, what the **** are they even putting into your body? There are so many question marks and some (not all) of the guinea pigs are getting fired up because their shot doesn’t work. Now it’s my fault. What’s next?

What the **** else do you want to talk about??? You have verbally attacked me all damn day. I’m sick and tired of it. Are the mods going to do anything about it? Get the **** off this forum. You’re an arrogant ****.

I have a newsflash for you. Our world is filled with people from all walks of life. Different religious. Heck, maybe you’re an atheist. I don’t know. I’m a Christian. The list goes on. Different political beliefs. Different taste for food & music. Some people like blondes, some like blonde dudes. Doesn’t mean you get to aggressively come at them all day Ling because they believe differently then you, or feel differently about something then you.

This is why I said this entire thread was/is a bad idea. It’s like having a thread on religion or politics. It’s a recipe for disaster. It divides. This is a basketball forum, specifically here, a Celtics forum. That’s at least something we all enjoy and share. That’s where it should stay.


That's like asking why a basketball team should ever play defense if opponents are going to score sometimes anyway.

In fairness, for many diseases it is OK to believe in an oversimplified dichotomy -- they either prevent the disease or they didn't work, period.

But for COVID, the middle case -- not entirely preventing it but greatly/HUGELY reducing its severity -- is particularly important.



Fencer - excellent post.

I just highlighted your most important & cogent comment.

That is precisely one of the most important points the uniformed do not understand.

Thousands upon thousands more than the 1500 people currently dying every single day would be dying as well - if not for the vaccines.


The only excuse for the anti-vax ignorance is not understanding that highlighted point. But come on; the disease has been around for much more than a year, and the vaccines have been out for many months. People should take the trouble to educate themselves before committing to being stridently anti-vax.

Similarly, the only excuse for being anti-mask is to not understand a major corollary of the highlighted point -- one can be successfully protected by a COVID vaccine and still be infectious with the disease.

The Delta variant is dramatically more transmissible.
Vastly more people (especially the unvaccinated) are masking & social distancing much less.
