The heck?[edit]

Came looking for pandemic info. Found “Save the planet” propaganda. 67.190.126.82 23:25, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

Increased exposure to exotic diseases which turn into pandemics is linked to anthropogenic destruction of the natural world. Facts can be stubborn things...--C.J. Griffin (talk) 16:53, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

@Pratap Pandit: This is hounding, you should stop stalking and making baseless accusations. WQ:CIVIL and WQ:WQT Rupert Loup 16:52, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

I prefer to retain this censored quote[edit]

What Wikimedia does not censor community censors it, that too cites strange reasons! Whether quotability of quotation depends on the source? ( I used to believe quotabilty depends on effective delivery of a communication or message, Was I wrong?) Why any sentence should loose it's quotability for being in Letter to the Editor section ? Actually letters to editors are letters added to public and have been gone through process of editorial crosscheck/review already. Editors receive huge number of letters and only select ones get published after editorial judgement.

Censored Quote[edit]

  • "...Who do you know that has ever said, “I’m going to get really drunk and then drive around on public roads?”; Who do you know that has ever said, “I’m going to go out in public, but I refuse to wear a face mask?”
Both these questions can end in the same result to any of us in Gadsden.....If you choose to drive a vehicle when you’re drunk,..., you are putting everyone on our highways in danger of possible injury — or even death....It’s the same as choosing not to wear a face mask in public. You’re putting everyone around you in danger by possibly exposing them to COVID-19, ultimately leading to severe illness and even death for some....You’ll never even know that you injured someone or gave them the virus that caused their death.....I’ve heard some say, “It’s My body, my choice.” It’s your choice for your body, but not my body, or all the general public’s bodies around you that you are exposing to the virus...."
Not Notable. I see no reason to retain it.--C.J. Griffin (talk) 06:13, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Dear sir, if you do not mind, can you explain reason of your censorship from following a,b,c your reservation is regarding a)Source: i.e. 'from Letter to an editor' b) Quotability c) Relevance to this article ?

If she is this Diane Davis then is notable. Rupert Loup 08:29, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
Agreed, but I don't think it is.--C.J. Griffin (talk) 13:16, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Curious edits[edit]

I have nothing against IPs. Actually I have seen them do really good work. I am just commenting to see if anyone else saw what I just discovered:

I looked through the history of the article's page (click View history tab at the top of COVID-19 pandemic ) and noticed many removals (look for the red number of bytes) of large amounts of text from this article, and noticed that most (all?) were carried out by IPs. I don't really have the time to chase this, but I thought it looked a bit curious. Anyone else? Ottawahitech (talk) 16:04, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
