Re: [Phys-L] Awareness and the Most Vulnerable Coronavirus Population

We should stick to physics teaching as that's what this list is for and
what people on it want. That's why we're here. Off topic discussions take
away from that, and raise all sorts of arguments. I;m not sure why the
moderator does not take more control when this happens.

Just my thoughts. Curious what others think...

I think we need a culture list that is populated by physicists. One of
the main reasons I like phys-l is that it has permitted somewhat off list

I was kicked off tap-l twice, the second time banned forever. The first
time I clashed w/ the previous list owner regarding the success of a US
fighter. which, IIRC, he claimed won the war. I pointed out that the
Soviet army essentially won the war when they won the battle of Kursk,
which was before the Normandy invasion. Later a poster asked for equipment
donations for the Boy Scouts. I posted that I would not do, so as they
were a homophobic organization. That was the last straw. As you all, I
assume know, the BSA has filed chapter 11, to protect themselves from abuse
claims. This is, I think, an example of Freud’s reaction formation.

One question I have regarding Bill’s claim that homosexually oriented
persons are more vulnerable to covid, why?

bc. one of the more guilty of posting “off list”. BTW, he’s added more
to his covid site, and expects to do some major date upping, as about a
week has passed since...

And regarding JD’s importance of unknown cases: ”As many as half of
those with the coronavirus could be asymptomatic, Fauci says.”
