    The main point of the ruling is that there's a close relationship between conspiracy theories/deliberate fake news and unstable racist behaviour at times like this, so I don't want this site to be a vector for such stuff.

    Fair enough. Although I consider this claim by Capablanca-Fan to be both stupid and dangerous: "But if doctors were allowed to prescribe hydroxychloroquine for anyone who tests positive and was willing to take the stuff (as malaria and lupus patients have been doing for 60 years), then they may never need hospitalization in the first place."

    Note: Capablanca-Fan replied to the above post both on this thread and on the coronavirus thread - it is often difficult for a poster to know what to do when another poster engages with the substance of an issue while proposing moderation of it. I've deleted the copy from this thread while posting this post as a link to the reply.

    Dr. Moderator, I wish to post a suggestion that has moderating only as a backdrop. It does contain what could be perceived to be a comment on modding but that is not it's intention. It's like a Venn diagram of three circles one being suggestive of a classical figure for your blog. Cheers.

    Yep OK it can go in Frank and Fearless in the coffee lounge. That thread is open again now by the way.

    I'll be carrying more of antichrist's posts out of here in disembodied pieces - or perhaps taking stronger action - if he doesn't stop posting off-topic. Posts deleted.
    I think he misread Turley for Turkey

    I'm sure he did but even if it had been an on-topic reference to Turkey his comment in response would still have been off-topic. And a moment's care in reading the post mentioning Turley would have seen that it did not make sense to think of it as referring to a country.

    The pun was that of course Turkey did know what was going on and they had extensive video of it that went viral. Sorry in this thread.

    Some post has been ''considered'' as inappropriate due to the fact that it was initially made by a ''convicted white supremacist'. I am wondering: If there is a post sharing say George Floyd's prison inmates's sweet recollections of angel-like behavior while in prision - it should be considered as inappropriate or not.

    That's not even anything like what I said (or even what the person objecting said); go back and read the notice again, much more slowly and carefully this time.

    I don't see why it would be deleted. My concern is that CC not be used as a vector for racist hate sites.

    SPECIAL PERMISSION
    On the death of Vera Lynn at 103 can we bend the no song rule in Shoutbox rule and spread the nostalgia of 4 generations ago when the civilised world was in gloom. I realise she doesn't fit into current genres of punk and hiphop and rap. Basil will become homesick.

    Agreed.

    Note also: I've deleted a shout containing the word "leftard". This word and similar expressions for the other side such as "RWNJ" are not to be used in the shoutbox.
