Re: Before I defect to telegram, why are my comments on the main page being censored

...I don't know what MTF is... MTF is a poster. ...Maybe the mods cba reading some of the thesis length posts?... There's a character limit on posts of 2500 characters, that's about 30 lines at "Normal" font size. Hardly a thesis. In the "About" section of this site Toby Young writes If you want to...

This research seeks to broaden the discussion surrounding COVID... Hi, A few questions, is this an undergraduate project or post-graduate research? Who is funding the research? Which other individuals, groups and/or institutions are participating in the research? Are the results likely to be publis...

Re: Cheer yourself up with the BBC

Have you read any of the pieces churned out by their "Anti-misinformation Unit" ? Outfits like the Anti-misinformation Unit are one of the many reasons why the Tories will never defund the BBC. Marianna Spring (who works for them) recently tweeted about "...how anti-mask groups are gateway into mor...

Re: The non-freedom network

Does anyone know of any other lockdown groups in Berkshire? I was a member of The Freedom Network (as recommended on here) – the Reading group.. but I was blocked and ostracised.... Interesting. I can well believe it. The Covid panic became politicised a few months after it started to spread in the...

Re: What difference has vaccine made?

...And this: https://ivmmeta.com/ .... That's an extremely convincing and exhaustive meta-analysis. I'm assuming that the NHS isn't employing this drug at any stage of the illness with any patients. Have they said why? Simply claiming "no evidence" would be another blatant manipulation of the data....

Re: SWEDEN - planned easings part 2

...From about July 15th... Very interesting. Significant changes to restrictions in other nations, either tightening or loosening, are another important source of feedback for the government. I believe, as I explained here , that the government is now just reacting to incoming signals from signific...

Re: The Covid panic as a feedback loop

Why have all the replies to this post been deleted. They were there, now they've gone. Why is that? Anyone?? Well that was confusing. There are 2 instances of the original post, one has replies appended the other doesn't. The 2 original posts are separated by a couple of hours in time of posting. I...

Re: Was Boris right?

With cases rising was Boris right to extend the lockdown? after all, more cases means faster mutations, and as variants become more transmissible and dangerous, once they render our immunity powerless, we'll have to start again..... It depends what you mean by "right" I guess. My own view as expres...

Re: The Covid panic as a feedback loop

They are banal, in that they are so commonplace, loops can be used to explain almost any phenomenon, for example, orbits, classical mechanics, river flow... This is the last time I'll respond to ANY of your posts. An explanation that is "banal" can still be correct. The germ theory of illness was c...
