As usual, Jimbo is taking some rather huge shortcuts through the facts.
Don't shit on any other thread? Uh...he's certainly tried. To his 'credit' (I guess) he has laid off the other Covid threads, but he had to be reminded to do so more than once.
Clicks? As Rayge already explained in the 'lurker' thread, there are many reasons why that happens. People (those that are not bots, which accounts for most of them) lurking but not posting could be because they're shy or feel outnumbered here, but it could also just as easily be they were looking for an intelligent discussion about Covid and realized that there wasn't one to be had here. I'll add that posting memes constantly raises the numbers too because people doing an image search will be brought to where those specific images are being posted in addition to where they originated.
But this is the kicker:
Basically, you don't like what I am putting down but you don't want to debate because my points are too strong - usually backed up with links - and you are, I guess, too weak to admit you are wrong.
Just speaking for myself (but I know others here have said the same) I would LOVE to debate. Took me a while to realize he's not capable of it. As I said really early on, an immunity to facts. He's said so several times. "This makes the point that..." err, no it doesn't. And your reading comprehension is not my responsibility.
Again, I've said several times there are valid points made in some of what's been posted there - worthy of debate. Lockdown too severe? Hey, plenty of people a lot more sane/intelligent than Jimbo have said so. Not one of them repeated the same unrelated points from the same sources over and over and over. A meme is not an argument. A tagline ('Covid is horseshit') is not an argument. Not one of them has said the cure for Covid is to take two aspirin and lie down and it'll pass either. That is an incorrect (and potentially dangerous) argument to make, and would have been cause for immediate banning on pretty much any board that has more active moderators than this one does.
Bottom line for me is, this is a music board. It is not a conspiracy board. Those are available for those who want them. I don't even know what Jimbo's doing here any more - he hasn't posted about music for years.
And I'm already seeing more posting by people who've been kept away by his nonsense. Hopefully more will arrive.
Straight up trade, Jimbo for Rorschach, Geezee, and maybe (in due time) others coming back to the fold? Is there really anyone here who wouldn't make that trade?
