I just got off the phone to a fairly senior minister in the WA government. The first he knew of the decision was listening to the Premier's press conference. There was no discussion in the government as a whole over this decision.

What a complete and utter ****.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Mate, this is getting really boring. You're obviously going to be banned if you keep trolling the joint.

How about you say your piece, let everyone else say their's, and have a conversation like a normal person?

Greece is fining anyone over 60 on a monthly basis if they refuse the jab.

Not sure what your point is here?

You are clearly trying to get a rise out of people judging by the threads you've posted in within the last hour.

A friendly warning, have a discussion, have a debate. Exchange ideas but knock off the trolling.

You can act like you aren't but we all know you are.

Don't come here to be a pain just have discussions it's not that hard.

The Greek government is fining those over 60 who refuse to get the jab on a monthly basis. It is a fact.

New Omicron subvariant. Scientists are worried.

For two years I have been saying it will never end. I have a feeling 2022 will be the year people start to believe me.

The scientists, and most everyone, have always agreed it won’t “end”, because viruses mutate. Many hope that COVID mutates into strains less contagious and virulent, but we don’t know and have no guarantee of that.

Glad you jumped in here pig… I was hoping for a peer review of my analysis of the things I read in a forum. Now you have confirmed it for me, we can make it official. 1992 is in complete agreeance with health authorities regarding covid 19.

Novavax approved by the TGA on Thursday. Some examples of people in the attached link who had bad reactions to their first vaccine. Others were advised by their Doctor not to have a vaccination, can have Novavax

What happens to those who want Novovax but were forced to get AZ/Pfizer/Moderna? Too bad so sad you’re already vaxxed even though it wears off every few weeks? Because apparently it can’t be used as a booster, so I guess only the pure-bloods can now get it

He's got the majority share / ownership of a biotech company so I'm not sure he is a pureblood like you.

An interesting bit of reading.

Djokovic bets on a COVID cure as he quests for tennis history: https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sport ... 022-01-19/

And then read this.

Tennis has a clean record on PEDs, and that appears to be no accident: https://www.espn.com.au/espn/otl/story/ ... o-accident

Anyone who rejects the covid jab is a pureblood.
Best of luck to him in his business life.

Novax stood for what he believes, as do I.
This is the hill I die on.

Finchy, there are a range of people and conditions mentioned in the link for which Novavax can be used. It is not only anti=vaxers, who by definition, would not have this vaccine either.

It doesn't really answer my question. If those who were forced to get AZ/Pfizer/Moderna, but want Novavax (once it's approved), can they get it? Or can only the unvaccinated or those that had a significant negative reactions to the others get it? Will they say "you're already double/triple vaxxed, you can't have it", even though the effectiveness of AZ/Pfizer/Moderna wears off after a few weeks? Or will anyone who wants it be able to get it whenever they want?

So basically you can’t have it if you’ve already had something else. Otherwise it would be considered a booster, which it’s not approved for.
