No such thing as Chinese, I think it's political to be offended and not to say Chinese Virus.
Doesn't matter what you call it, but calling it the Chinese Virus isn't making this happen.
China has been used to having these problems, it was them who let the genie out of the bottle. We should be angry at China, so to be reminded of their greed as the cause of a worldwide pandemic is fine. The world will reduce their dependence on China, less we forget.

The irony is economic dependence prevents wars, kind of difficult to be at war when one country has the bullets and the other has the guns.



My takeaway is that someone has to much idle time on their hands.
The best things in life are not free.

Only those willing to go too far will find out just how far they can go. Or something.

I received a complaint about MaxPen's avatar as being violation of the rule against political statements. In channels outside the forum, Max said he does not intend to log in to change it and doesn't care what I do. Lacking other options, he is suspended until he requests to come back and then shortly after changes it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

EB's avatar is definitely childish and immature, but not a violation of the forum rules.

It's apparently the ass of a plastic garden gnome.
I concur that it is not a violation of forum rules.
I don't believe that describing the avatar is a violation of the rules either.

YMMV
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..
