Your opinion. Not any more valid than anyone else’s. 

But being a Moderator that's also my discretion to decide.  That's where I'm trying to find what that line is on both sides.  I'm pretty open-minded of opposing views but do find some of the rhetoric on the extremes too much.

Its incredible to me that you would read this thread with all its toxic trolling about hospitals filling up and anti vax rhetoric from your bros and think that people who just showed up the past few days are a problem. This place is gross and has been for awhile. 

Lmao, gross, lmao. Free ideas and expressions are gross, lmao

A follow up to the UMass vaccination mandate implemented yesterday... anyone not vaccinated is placed on immediate unpaid leave starting on Monday.  There's no submission of evidence for in state residents, apparently they already have it in a database. 

Anyway, I respect the rights of employers to do what they want... decisions have consequences on both sides...

Was there significant advance warning that this step would be taken?  Otherwise, one week is mighty short notice.  Imagine someone getting Moderna #1 last week and having 2-3 weeks unpaid leave until that person can receive #2 and be fully vaxxed.  Or would getting the first Pfizer or Moderna count?

Decision came yesterday afternoon.  The Monday deadline is for shot 1.  Shot 2 deadline is 9/16.

Free ideas and expressions are fine when they’re grounded in science and reality. What percentage of unvaccinated people do you think have any sort of a grasp on the science?

That’s where you and I disagree. Your job is to get rid of the personal insults and blatant trolling. Your job is NOT to moderate others opinions. You can as part of your perceived responsibility to challenge someone. If somebody post that vaccines cause dementia, by all means ask them to show the data where that’s a possibility (they can’t by the way) but to censure that is wrong, IMO. 
But by all means get rid of the insults.

Calling vaccines poison is gross. 

Trolling over hospitalizations and deaths in the middle of a terrible pandemic that has killed 750000 Americans is gross. 

Free speech (which is not really relevant on a private forum) is often gross.

blatant trolling? Delete half the tread then. Good lord lol. PhineasC has double the post of anyone here and does that all the time. 

it seems that some accept only the "right kind" of trolling.

“Vaccines have that chemical that’s in fireflies and the government will be able to track you with it”, “vaccines come with a microchip,” “vaccines cause autism,” the list goes on and on and on, are very obviously not grounded in science and reality and are beliefs held by thousands to millions of “people.”
