If you object to my use of ‘skepticism’ what would you call your approach to this?Okay, fair enough . Maybe not go accusing people of being skeptical out of hand then , when you haven't done or are willing to do any research of your own. Sounds like you have bought into the mass hysteria , Rod

Either you meant that literally (which would be preposterous) or else you wrote that as a comparative rhetorical device to illustrate your ... what? Disbelief / contempt / derision for the political response? That seems an awful lot like skepticism to me.
Anyway you seemed scorned by what you call my “accusation” of your skepticism then turn round and accuse me of not being sufficiently informed. You have absolutely no idea what my knowledge base is, what research I have or haven’t done and what I’m willing or unwilling to do.
Whatever we are going through right now, I wouldn’t call it “mass hysteria” but your doing so has a hint of skepticism in that at least you see the political and/or public response as an over reaction. I’d love to know what you - with your purported superior knowledge and depth of research - would suggest the reaction to this pandemic be.
Actually that’s not true I don’t really care. Don’t bother. I’m out.
