In my view I think it’s okay to post that but you’re going to get called out.

I think the issue is that we aren’t all going to agree on stuff but I feel as long as it’s not personal attacks (I’ve done that twice for which I apologise) it’s kind of fair game.

It is an emotive subject.

Someone who disagrees may report it but without research it’s hard to say which bits are right or wrong. (It may be blindingly obvious to others but not me)

You have a trusted source list, anything outside of that is removed.
i/e government websites, certain news outlets and papers?

Things like Twitter and Youtube are not included on there because any flat earther can put stuff on there and claim its legit.

Ok, but the last post on the previous locked thread expressly said it could not be done

“The forums will not be used to spread misinformation”

Which is why I said "in my view".

I mean clearly the pandemic isn't over, but equally we have people here quoting SAGEs demonstrably incorrect modelling (they have since admitted it's wrong) as FACT. Did anyone sit there worried about the pandemic, read Allen's assertion and go, oh good that's ok then? Unlikely!

So, really, its easy to say stick to facts but there's so much uncertainty about everything right now. Misinformation isn't good I agree.

Conspiracy theories -- well they are 99% BS and most people see it that way. I don't think it's wrong that someone has a theory that goes against the grain.It can be a discussion point. If someone is here posting that there's no such thing as COVID, then yes, that's wrong.

This is just carrying the conversation here.
As agreed facts are impossible to agree on

A thread of just support or what’s been closed near you is okay.

But no discussion of any facts of figures, it just doesn’t work.

Even when only facts and figures are from pre-approved sources no arguments then?
