Reopen the COVID-19 Thread

3 posts in this topic

Okay, so we had several pages of worthwhile, rule-abiding discussion on the COVID-19 thread.  Along came some posters to derail it with overtly political discussion.  Why close the thread when the more sensible solution would have been to delete the offending posts and warn the offending posters?  Having been a forum moderator for years, I understand that it is a thankless task.  However, the broader community shouldn't be deprived of an opportunity to discuss their experiences because of a few errant posts.
