    The new thread is locked, not sure if intentional?
    ECONOMIC RESPONSES TO CORONAVIRUS
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Thanks, that was a mistake. I forgot that if I split from a locked thread then the new thread will be locked as well. Open for business now.

    I think it is appropriate to merge the two threads regarding Arianne Caoili into one thread. This would then contain when all of us first heard of her car accident and then follows along until news broke of her passing.

    Otherwise, I do not see much purpose in the first thread. I had always taken it that the original thread would be used for updates, good or bad, and unfortunately the latest update is the worst news.

    Personally I think it's better to keep the tribute thread separate.

    I think my concern is emotional - people who posted on the first thread thinking that Arianne was probably going to survive based on the information available at the time might not want their posts merged to the later thread. This might be an unfounded concern but I can't be sure, and that's why I'm inclined not to do it.

    I also think the 2 threads should stay separate. Such sad news.
