In my opinion, HW is trying to have it both ways. It doesn’t work.
Actually IT is is NOT Healing well that is "trying to have it both ways". If anyone should be criticized about
this it is your moderators, especially Prato and me. The guidelines for HW on off topic subjects are clear: "10. Stay on topic. Posts which are not relevant to the forum topic may be deleted". Your moderators have chosen to relax this guideline because it seemed to be what our members wanted especially during this COVID-19 crisis. And we have participated in the OT discussions. We discussed this off line and decided that this was important enough to use our discretion and have even allowed the discourse to bounce up against the political rules. However, we have insisted that the discussion remain respectful and not violate Rule #3, having edited, deleted and even suspended when that doesn't occur. The feedback we have received about
the approach described in this paragraph has been positive.
Back to the question at hand, I personally do not support a separate COVID-19 forum nor a no-holds-barred political - religious forum as part of the HW mission. There are plenty of options on the internet for that. However, if anyone really feels that is appropriate you should feel free to email the administrator/owner, Mr. Peter Waite, and make your case.
If anyone believes for a second that shutting down the world’s largest economy and outlawing religious gatherings is not a Lol political move then....nothing is political. Only one side of this story is being presented to the readers. But, it’s not about
the readers. It’s about
one group of men who, for the most part, agree with the politics of this issue. You do understand Jim, that...no politics needs to be banned if everyone who is talking about
politics is in agreement with the issues being discussed. If one disagrees and tries to state a reason for disagreement....”too relaxed! That’s political!” 😊
I’ll say no more. This post has no more to do with prostate cancer than discussing how many people are falling over dead with Covid does. So I’ll shut up. 😊
