Make of that what you will. I'm not aware of much controversy here regarding climate change. I expect if that too became a proxy for politics or controversial in its own way, then it might get discouraged.
I just interpret the forum's rules. We can all do that and will all reach our own conclusions.
I guess you don't pay much attention to US politics. The response to climate change is amongst the most controversial topics we have, and a certain new President ran against a certain ex President with the response to climate change a MAJOR point!
Dear WMOAT,Quote: OnceDearI don't define it as political, but as controversial. It's easy for us to see close alignment between highly charged political opinions and similarly charged mask/vaccine opinions and in some cases they are proxies for eachother.Quote: AxelWolfOk, but, How is that political? I have no doubt someone can turn it into something political, but it seems you can turn just about any conversation into something political.Quote: Wizard
This is the comment that I was referring to, " I still belive [sic] had we done a much more rigorous proper lock down accros [sic] the world we could have confined much sooner. Unfortunately, I don't know if that was ever even a remote possibility. "
But rule 19 covers it fine.We know well enough when we are being controversial.Quote: rule 19
Controversial Speech: In an effort to keep the focus of the forum on gambling, Vegas, and math, comments of a political, racial, religious, sexual, or otherwise controversial nature are not allowed. We recommend taking such discussion elsewhere (Added 8/13/19).
Heaven forbid there's anything remotely controversial around here(There's much more to be said about that, in a nut shell, without controversy forums like this would be a ghost town, but I think you know that). for the record, I did not know I was truly being controversial, it certainly wasn't my intentions. I think it's a legitimate question/thought, and an interesting one at that.
BTW I did think your explanation how my statement was not necessarily political, but controversial instead, was a good explanation, had Mike just said that in the first place it may have been the end of it. You might want to ask for a raise for coming to his rescue.
p.s. Is there anything AZDuffman has ever said that isn't controversial?😁
I care about the reasons. That's super important. I heard a story on NPR where a significant number of nursing home workers (mostly minorities) are declining to be vaccinated( that's crazy if you ask me). If I recall correctly, it seemed that lack of Education about the vaccine was a serious issue. They went on to say something about having an educational one-on-one conversation with another Healthcare professional in that field helped those reluctant change their minds about receiving the vaccine.Quote: Vegasrider
As the OP, it's just a poll. I don't care what your reasons are for getting the vaccine or not, but I did give everyone the option to select that you are opting out, which is a key component to my poll.

Individuals reasoning can be discussed in a different thread. We all have are reasonings on why we should or shouldn’t. The vaccine has been out for 6 weeks. I was just curious how many of us have gotten at least the 1st dose vs still waiting or don’t want it at all.
Yeah, but only after having to wait in a line that looks like this.... And those are just the people who originally refused to get the vaccine.Quote: RogerKint
