Re: [Phys-L] Coronavirus, Most Vulnerable Demographic

Tap-l ers,

I refuse to copy Bill’s posts in my replies. And out of consideration for other’s opinions and knowledge I won’t say everything I am thinking about Bill Norwood’s posts. But I am compelled to say something. He has repeatedly asked for responses to a series of posts which are at best in poor taste. At worst, I won’t even say. I can remotely understand postings about corona virus in general but to single out a demographic as Bill has done is beyond the pale. It is so far beyond physics teaching topics it makes me wonder how Bill even considers posting such information on this list.

Thank you Anthony for the reminder. This list has a great history for running in an unmoderated form. But in my not so humble opinion Bill is pushing way beyond what is appropriate. If he continues I would urge the moderators to reconsider their policy of not moderating posts. I do hope Bill, and others, will heed the request to stick to topics that are related to Physics Teaching.

As was already discussed before, this is a physics listserv for physics
teaching topics.
