    The only petition from Michael Baron I know about is the one to strip criminals of their refugee status. But you surely can't be referring to that one, since it would be completely off-topic?

    Well on some things we can agree:

    The Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph should take serious responsibility of media ethics to report unbiasly and objectively!
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Good luck with the project!

    Martin Niemoller has some words for you:
    First [the Herald Sun] came for the [Sudanese refugees], and I did not speak out — Because I was not a [Sudanese refugee].
    Then [the Herald Sun] came for the [protestors], and I did not speak out — Because I was not a [protestor]. ...
    Then [the Herald Sun] came for [Chinese Australians] — and there was no one left to speak for [them].

    By the way, this claim from the petition is simply wrong: "The subtitle of the headline on Herald Sun as of 29th January, “Chinese virus pandamonium” inappropriately labeled the Coronavirus by race." If something originates in China, it is, by definition, Chinese. The term 'Chinese virus' refers to the country (as in 'Chinese Chess'), not the race.

    Michael, they are just doing exactly the same reactionary baiting that you do every day on this board. You thrive on this low class gimmicky. When I pulled the same trick re those cigarette robbers maybe you and ER didn't appreciate at all. At least South Sudanese have not brought virus over with them.

    Unless Wendy Wong is Michael's stage name, it's not really his petition, just one that he has signed.

    Are there unjustly turning students away? If students had just returned from China it has to be considered. When AIDS first visited us maybe strict quarantine should have taken place and saved many thousands of lives.

    Meanwhile, there are Australians who instead of sitting on their ignoramus (thank God they are only a sad few) bums, are doing something about it.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-...Oyf3U878UVhZxE

    BTW I have a slight suspicion, that certain posts here (which in no way reflect to the opinion of the huge majority of chess chatters) are considered distasteful from Chinese backgournd chess players and parents!

    Chinese chess players and parents are tough. They will survive distasteful and posts without much damage, remember who made them....and will never forget .

    There is a saying in Russian ''The Caravan is going to move forward even if the dogs keep barking'' - well, China is moving forward all the time. As we (Chinese and ''Chinese-minded people'') keep working hard and smart across the globe we become less and less vulnerable .

    Public response to the virus clearly illustrates how many ''intellectuals'' we have...who hold strong views on the Virus and its origins .

    Asking someone to clarify their post is not off-topic.
