COVID-19 Discussion Thread
15

After a week or so of experience in trying (and failing) to keep threads on topic (photo-related) I've had to lock several of them.

Some folks feel like we should be able to talk about it, even though it's not photography-related. (It is a huge world issue)

Others feel like they're sick of reading about it and want DPR to be a place where they don't have to think about.

It might be a good compromise to "quarantine" all COVID-19 discussions to this single thread. That way, those who want to talk about it can talk about it here, and those who don't want to be bothered with it can just ignore this one thread.

The challenge will be to keep it civil. (Rule 6):

Be civil. Anyone being rude, abusive, calling names or generally trying to stir up trouble will not be tolerated. If you think someone is wrong it may be because they are new. Don't jump on them, think first. If you are repeatedly abusive you will be banned from these forums. Specific behavior that will not be tolerated and will result in post removal / banning includes:

  • Bashing: Deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand, product orcompany. If you have a complaint or comment to make, make it once and make sure you have facts to support it.
  • Flaming: Insulting, abusive, malicious, personal attacks.
  • Trolling: Deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait.'
  • Swearing: Using profanity (or changing characters to bypass our profanity filters)

Please report posts (use the 'Complain' button at the bottom) that violate this to help us moderate it as needed.

If it goes badly and folks just can't be civil about it, we'll need to lock it and be super-firm to Rule 8. (Stay on Topic)

To start, here are some threads that were locked, which had a lot of good discussion, but went too far off topic or got uncivil:
