This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind.

That statement alone disqualifies your opinion on this issue.  People (especially the old and vulnerable... the same people threatened by Covid19) are hospitalized and die every day from the common cold.  You are so ignorant that it should hurt to be you.

The common cold? Maybe you mean side effects related to it, like pneumonia which doesn’t develop overnight, even on the elderly. Now, the Flu is slightly different. And then There’s COVID. Don’t take my word for it though, I couldn’t possibly be as educated as YOU in the matter.

It's the side effects of the Covid virus that kills people, just like the cold or flu.  The virus itself does not.  This is a medical fact.  It's not like ebola, which directly destroys cells and causes hemorrhaging.
Your special brand of stupid is truly sad. You have my pity.
And your existence is a net negative for humanity.  Every breath you take is oxygen stolen from a more useful purpose, like deflecting solar radiation or a forest fire.

I like the spin that no one ever died from the 'Flu' before.

Seriously can not make this shit up.
Who is saying that?

Yeah  ???

I have real people thanking me for my help everyday as I tend them or their loved ones. I can easily dismiss your foolishness.

Which has no bearing on the method by which Covid kills, the arbitrary nature of defining when a cold or Covid becomes somethin else, or basic biology, all of which you are wrong about.  Which is why you can't defend your position.

I don't have to defend my anything from fools like you. But I can still pity you for being so foolish.

I find it silly how you can enter AU as a citizen, but they won’t let you leave.

   For the greater good of the collective citizen.  You wouldnt want to be considered selfish/racist/genocidal now would you?  because if you are out there breathing the air freely, you are dangerous.

Strange flex, at least in the US we remain largely free to decide for ourselves how we live our lives. Still think you’re better off taking the vaccine and moving on past this, especially if you’re in a low-resource country.

   The last year and a half should have showed you that is not as true as you and I would like for it to be.  The going narrative now is you are dangerous to your fellow citizen by simply living and being out and about.  Want to end masks?  get vaccinated.  Wait, I mean get vaccinated and wear a mask.  Wait, maybe get vaccinated, wear a mask and lets do some form of shut down non-essential business bullshit again.  Of course who is essential and who is not is a very, very, very subjective question our lords and masters will decide for us.

Was it Clive James who said the problem with Australians wasn't that they were descended from prisoners but that a lot of them were descended from prison officers?

Well, I guess that will vary from person to person. I’m highly independent from other people outside my immediate circle. I can easily go another year on ‘lockdown’ and quite frankly, in some regions of the country I feel it’s absolutely necessary. Wearing masks for me was never about making a statement. And no, I don’t feel submissive in having to wear a mask in the worst of a Pandemic. It doesn’t hurt my ego as a free citizen to comply with mask ordinances.

So you don't mind unnecessarily exposing yourself to the risk of bacterial pneumonia, along with the possibility of much nastier long-term harm caused by inhalation of mask fibres?

I feel healthier than ever. In fact, in terms of comfort I recommend tommie copper over anything else. I know they won’t fully protected me but at least if someone is being gross next to me I can just put mine on and feel cozy. I must emphasize I keep at least 9 feet away from most people.
