Indeed your voice will be missed, at the very least by me. Always enjoyed the back and forth discussion, even if I rarely disagree with your opinion on certain topics.
OK, apparently I can post again ...
For those who need a "goodonya" right now ...
A number of people have reported receiving unsolicited packages of seeds with markings or labels in Chinese.
Whatever they offer you, DON'T FEED THE PLANTS!!!
(I understand that the latest theory about these things is that the vendor is engaged in a practice called "brushing," where the vendor creates fake positive reviews of their product, but requires "real" customers in order to do so. The vendor is "creating" customers by sending packages to random-but-real people. The vendor, in this case, may be selling jewelry, and the packages may contain seeds because a) seeds are cheaper, and b) seeds are lighter to mail.)
One of the reasons that there is so much misinformation during the pandemic crisis is that people are a) generally fairly ignorant about medical matters, and b) scared enough to believe anything.
Another reason is paywalls ...
