    I do not believe Lorieas was an adult pretending to be a child.

    In now deleted chatbox conversation they mentioned having a granddaughter who showed them things and other thing which indicated they were an adult. They also said English was not their first language.

    Still there is clearly something off about the account, some of the posts seemed copy pasted to me and others were just silly.

    I suspect that they are a junior pretending to be an adult. The rule works both ways.

    They also said English was not their first language.
    I have reason to believe their claim is false.

    I think that might be the case.

    The Wuhan Coronavirus thread has turned into a discussion about Australia at war.

    Thread "Wuhan Coronavirus" renamed "COVID-19 Coronavirus"

    Given the fact that the disease has become pandemic, a renaming was warranted. But isn't the new name an example of RAS Syndrome (Redundant Acronym Syndrome Syndrome), much like HIV virus, ATM machine, PIN number, JEB Bush (JEB = John Ellis Bush)? The illness is officially now called COVID = COronaVIrusDisease, caused by the pathogen officially called SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome COronaVirus 2).

    I've changed it to "Covid-19 Pandemic".
