#1 Anybody who still believes in herd immunity needs psychiatric treatment - middle ages style.

#3 Exactly, Frank. You people can keep pretending that your position is not fantasy. But the Gods of the Copybook Headings are here.

#6 Not every post - just the ones that are blatant & dishonest propaganda.

#8 More specifically, any post that (due to the poster's ideological orientation/personal preferences) which presents a distorted picture (usually underestimating by orders of magnitude) of the requirements for herd immunity. cf.
Dowdy, D., & D’Souza, G. (2020). Early herd immunity against COVID-19: A dangerous misconception. Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Research Center.

#9 #7 Of course I think and feel subjectively and make mistakes. But, in this particular area I've been trained to think objectively. I'm not for lock-downs, masks, and HCQ because it satisfies my emotional needs. I'm because all my training & experience as mathematical biologist show that herd immunity is dangerous fantasy. And therefore, I'm for lock-downs, masks, and HCQ - and any other thing that'll work - because it's the only way until there is a vaccine.

#13 Based on this, g(r)om: "#6 Not every post - just the ones that are blatant & dishonest propaganda." It was a joke...Twitter, FB, YouTube, etc., deleting videos/posts from scientists/doctors if they don't toe the leftist/establishment line.
