[08:13:05] <SoyGuest27563> I post enough inflamatory stuff deliberately, having a simple fact moderated as such is disingenuous to say the least.
[08:14:24] <SoyGuest27563> Same fucknut who downmodded this one yesterday, so I suspect he's sniping rather than trying to actually express an opinion on the post itself: https://soylentnews.org

[09:00:19] <Ingar> I modded it informative
[09:17:18] <SoyGuest27563> thank you kindly, sir, you are a gentleman. or gentlewoman. or gentleinbetween. or gentlewhatever.
[09:40:04] <SoyGuest27563> RIP Toots Hibbert :(

[11:36:53] <Bytram> SoyGuest27563: It would help to provide substantiation for the statement. Otherwise "Asserts facts not in evidence" or, less charitably, because from what I'd read and heard, Sweden's experience was being held up as an example of what should NOT do.
[11:37:24] <Bytram> BTW, the statement was: "Sweden's deaths have all but stopped. The US's are still increasing. The comparison is disingenuous."
[11:39:58] <Bytram> would love to chat. gtg. back in a few hours.
[12:06:18] <SoyGuest27563> The evidence is the numbers, they're available on 100 different websites.

[12:32:09] <SoyGuest27563> "Trump Lied and Americans Died" ~ ridiculed a madman president (anagram)
[13:49:12] <Bytram> The real issue seems to me is: why are there ANY more cases? Compared to what has been spent so far, what would it take to "go nuts" on fighting the virus? Test *everyone*, test everyone again 1 week after the first test (catch the stragglers and false negatives), quarantine the positive cases for 2 weeks. So, it will take planning and $$ to get the testing ability up... so what? Throw some more money at it. Within a month we could
[13:49:12] <Bytram> basically stamp out almost all native cases -- and return to "normal", except maybe wearing facemasks and regular handwashing/disinfection for another month or two (prophylaxis)..
[14:04:56] <SoyGuest27563> Because there's a continual stream of people crossing international borders.
[14:05:42] <Bytram> mandatory quarantine for two weeks.
[14:06:06] <SoyGuest27563> all our recent cases are from people ignoring such quarantines
[14:06:14] <Bytram> We're trying to knock this out, everyone is suspect until we do.
[14:06:23] <SoyGuest27563> and by recent, I mean several months
[14:06:29] <Bytram> Enforced quarantine -- no "voluntary"
[14:07:23] <SoyGuest27563> I like the taiwanese method - you need to be able to take a photo of the place where you claim you are staying when you are called at a random time during the day.
[14:07:38] <Bytram> there will be challenges with the homeless / addicts / etc., but we can get it down to isolated cases from the current rampage
[14:08:15] * Bytram takes a picture of a picture.
[14:08:34] <SoyGuest27563> they aren't even noise in our signal, but we have way less homelessness than the US.
[14:09:24] <Bytram> sadly, some prefer living on the streets -- free from rules and regs
[14:10:53] <Bytram> that, and addiction is pervasive and damn hard to overcome... /me has known far too many who have succumbed to drug and alcohol addiction.
[14:13:26] <SoyGuest27563> We have a fairly progressive drug policy that encourages rehabilitation over punishment.
[14:14:33] <SoyGuest27563> It's in its early stages, we're nowhere near decriminalising, but the police are finally admitting that the punishment simply wasn't working.
[14:14:35] <Bytram> whoda thunk? treat the cause and not the symptom
[14:15:40] <SoyGuest27563> The nice thing is that I get the inside line on how this is changing as the Estonian we've known the longest (nearly 20 years) is spearheading this campaign, and he does negotiation and advocacy (and even presents data/papers to govt.)
[14:17:20] <Bytram> that's great news. Enough successes at helping people (and I am firmly aware there is no guaranteed cure-all) and it might catch on in other countries.
[14:20:16] <Bytram> in the early 1930s, to be an alcoholic was basically a death sentence. Eventually to be confined to sanitariums and delerium tremens. Now, millions have recovered; a long path to get to today, but there has been progress. Can only hope for continued improvement.
