We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.

- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.

- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    Like Japan in the mid-1800s, the United States now faces a crisis that disproves everything the country believes about itself.

    Without the threats and violence of the Chinese system, in other words, we have the same results: scientists not allowed to do their job; public-health officials not pushing for aggressive testing; preparedness delayed, all because too many people feared that it might damage the political prospects of the leader. I am not writing this in order to praise Chinese communism—far from it. I am writing this so that Americans understand that our government is producing some of the same outcomes as Chinese communism. This means that our political system is in far, far worse shape than we have hitherto understood.

        Just read some interesting possibility from a virologist who happens to be a microbiologist and a biostatistician. What was said was pretty much the possibility that with each infection, the chances or probability of mutation is somewhat of the concerning side. A logarithmic graph is proposed but verifications are needed, hopefully we do not have to witness those verifications.

          Of course we'll see mutation.

          We already have.

          What you really should be worried about is this thing become endemic.

          You don't want this thing to be constantly sticking around.

              John Hopkins University CSSE has a nice map of the outbreak:
              Death rate of those hospitalized seems to be around +/- 5%; it is not clear how many are sick and are self-quarantined at home. It is also not clear if once you have it if someone can catch it again

                Zhang Xinmin, an official at China’s science and technology ministry, said favipiravir, developed by a subsidiary of Fujifilm, had produced encouraging outcomes in clinical trials in Wuhan and Shenzhen involving 340 patients.

                “It has a high degree of safety and is clearly effective in treatment,” Zhang told reporters on Tuesday.

                Patients who were given the medicine in Shenzhen turned negative for the virus after a median of four days after becoming positive, compared with a median of 11 days for those who were not treated with the drug, public broadcaster

                    Stay safe Ed. This stuff has a pretty good spread rate. If you got close to someone who has it, you have a decent chance of contracting it.

                    The biggest problem is that it has a decent amount of time in which the host is infectious. That is one reason that the antiviral drug favipiravir would be a great initial treatment. By cutting the days that you can infect others in half, you should make a halfway decent dent into the spread rate.

                    Also, remember how the Native Americans reacted to common childhood diseases. Or, how even today that the first case of chicken pox in a 6 year old is no big deal, but let a 50 year old get chicken pox for the first time and it is a very ugly thing.

                    Once this virus spreads and we have a decent amount of adult herd immunity, it should be just another flu virus situation. Until then, it might get ugly.

                      The virus seems to stay alive on hard surfaces. So playground equipment, sports equipment, silverware, countertops, phones, computers...

                      So you gotta sterilize everything anyone else comes into contact with.

                        Maybe we should all do a reverse quarantine and tell people to stay the hell away from our stuffs.

                        That or make them sterilize after themselves.

                          Hospital Admin needs to be careful with their vague statements. I think they need some anti anxiety meds..

                          When Hospital Admin told Rev to sterilize the ICU, they should not start yelling at Rev when Rev informs them that it would be better if we waited a few more weeks before sterilization. Then when Rev agrees to do it now, they yell when Rev starts preps an ICU patient for a hysterectomy. Hoomuns. Sigh. Make up your minds.

                            nbcnews.com/news/world/china-reports-no-new-coronavirus-cases-offers-medical-aid-overseas

                            China on Thursday reported no new domestic coronavirus cases for the first time since the outbreak began there late last year, a milestone in the fight against the global pandemic.

                            The National Health Commission also said the rate of increase had slowed.

                            The news was another sign of the country's success in containing the spread of the virus, and it has been more than willing to share that success with the rest of the world.

                              The Senate has finally approved stimulus checks for people. So hopefully we'll all have money for FPs in a few weeks.
