    Maybe you should read my post again - you've completely misunderstood the point I was making. Let me make it simple for you: Michael is a hypocrite who is complaining about 'racial' abuse of Chinese people by the Murdoch press, but is happy to support racial abuse of Sudanese people by the same newspapers.

    Instead of making insinuations, why don't you explain exactly what is "distasteful" about my post - assuming that is one of the ones you're referring to. But maybe you should do some research on Martin Niemoller first!

    Perhaps it's Opposite Day, if Elton and Michael think they're the arbiters of tasteful posting on the forum.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I notice you've been active today. So I'll ask you exactly the same question I asked ER:

    So far I've received various email warnings from corporate travel, schools, and sporting organisations regarding how to stay safe from the virus, namely including post postponing any non-essential travel to China.

    Despite ER's ignorant nonsense, I've been dealing with some of the consequences of the epidemic - schools and junior clubs in Qld have already been affected. This is the current advice for children (and adults, presumably):
    1. Anyone who has been in contact with any confirmed novel Coronavirus cases must self-isolate (self-isolation means staying at home and not accepting visitors) for 14 days following exposure.
    2. Anyone who has visited Hubei Province of China needs to self-isolate for 14 days after leaving Hubei Province.
    3. Anyone who has visited China cannot attend school, childcare or TAFE for 14 days after leaving China, including Hong Kong.

    Yes what I've seen is quite similar


    The World Health Organization (WHO) and The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus. The first detection was in Wuhan city, Hubei Province, China and the footprint continues to expand into Singapore, Japan, South Korea Vietnam, United States and Thailand, Germany. It is thought to have spread by person-to-person contact via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, like how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread.

    As of Monday, January 27, the CDC and the US State Department told travelers to avoid all nonessential travel to China, increasing the severity of its previous travel warning as the deadly coronavirus continues to spread throughout the country. With that, [] will follow in kind and we will limit all nonessential travel to China from all of our global offices. If you believe you have essential travel, we’d ask that you reach out to your management for discussion.

    If you have travel booked to, from or thru any city in China, please contact your travel agency to cancel or reschedule.

    As a truly global organization that travels extensively around the work, we believe that sharing information like this is a core part of our safety and security work. So, we have provided information on symptoms, transmission, prevention and travel advice below. ...
    The following advice has been provided by the Executive Director of Independent Schools Queensland to member schools.

    Health authorities have provided updated advice regarding the management of the novel Coronavirus.

    This updated advice includes:

    • anyone who has been in contact with any confirmed novel Coronavirus cases must self-isolate (self-isolation means staying at home and not accepting visitors) for 14 days following exposure;
    • travellers who have visited Hubei Province of China need to self-isolate for 14 days after leaving Hubei Province;
    • returned travellers who have visited China cannot attend school, childcare or TAFE for 14 days after leaving China including Hong Kong.

    In keeping with this advice, if your family has travelled to China or Hong Kong, returning after 16 January 2020, students should not return to school until the 14 days have passed since their arrival home. Should either of the other two situations above apply to your family, please also follow the directions of Queensland Health. If the travel to China or Hong Kong was finished before that date, the danger period has passed.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    you obviously see (or rather imagine) things. "Some posts" doesn't insinuate your participation in this kind of ramble! BTW I will not fall into your confused state of "off-topic-wandering" by discussing Martin Niemöller with you here, although I am sure I know more about his life and THAT poem than you. So I am taking it to another thread!

    So which posts were you referring to, then? If you're going to make accusations, you should be specific.

    Do ER and Michael realise that the thread they are posting on is named after a city in China? Is that also racist?

    Ah calling people "mf"ers a moment after acusing them of being distasteful. Such a lovely piece of work you are.
    It's so much more delicious when someone is pretending not to read your posts and then they complain about them. Thanks for the lols.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    It's not clear at what stage the 'post' disappeared. But Chess Chat does automatically backup drafts, so they can sometimes be recovered.
