1. the thing to do is to stay alert
yes sure, don't panic, but don't just dismiss this as much ado about nothing.

3. I'm sure the fundies are disappointed.
They were probably hoping, no praying, that this was the rapture and Jeebus would be descending on a cloud from the sky.

13. The fundies plus a lot of Earth Worshipers. I've already seen several posts
suggesting that this is Mother Earth or Mother Nature taking revenge on humans and/or reducing our numbers to protect the environment. And people say the Fundies worship an vengeful god!

18. Those Earth Worshippers have some serious issues.
God forbid somebody close to them dies. Will they crow about Mother Nature's vengeance then?

6. Some Folks Just Can't Wait
For a whole shit load of people to die, so they can tell us they were right. Any time a new "pandemic" comes along and kills a few dozen people they break out the New Years party hats.

8. I have put more people on ignore in the past 24 hours over this
than I have all of this year. Some people just need to get a grip and stop being drama queens and inciting panic over this, and use their PROFESSIONAL (and I use that word loosely) opinion to calm people down. I am also seriously wondering about the motives of many here whom I thought were reasonable people (and LONG tiem members), but who may just be 'sleepers' waiting to make everyone here nuts.


It's sad when I who will not be swept into the wave of panic some are trying to incite, threaten and attack me because I just won't go along with their brand of bullshit.

15. what thread are they doing that to you?
you sound quite upset, and the part where you said, "some are trying to incite, threaten and attack me because I just won't go along with their brand of bullshit" sounds like a nasty thread. Could you link it, I'd like to see who's doing this. We're all entitled to our opinion but no one should be inciting attacks towards you.

11. There are people here and at other places that cheer for bad things
It's very common. There's lots of people here cheering on the downfall of the economy. I don't see why this should be different.
