    I said the original question was post (90). And I believe it is.

    You did respond in post (94) where you said regular testing for all, which is what you later denied.

    So, check it out again.

    Once again, I did not make post number 94. That post was by @Polymath257. Is this the best you can do?

    I am correct in denying statements attributed to me falsely.

    I can see where you have experience with never admitting being wrong, but it is the pandemic and the failure of the current administration to properly respond that has created the problems.

    If you make false statements about what I have posted (or not posted at all), how can I consider anything you post to be credible?

    I have no problem admitting I am wrong if I am wrong.

    I consider the facts. You should try it sometime.

    Well, you should answer my question in (90) which was addressed to you as your response in (104) was no answer. Would you like me to repeat it?

    While I do recognize your expertise on the no answer, answer, my posts do not fit your model.

    What if questions are not facts. Ridiculous what if questions are less, even than that.

    I would not be surprised if you were found to have the virus, given your admission to selfish, reckless disregard for even minimal standards of decency and safety.

    Quarantine is not about you. It is about managing a pandemic. It is about reducing the spread of a pathogen. Regular testing would be based on facts and not the wild flights of fantasy that you take.

    It is a simple question. It was addressed to you in light of your comments. It isn't ridiculous. How often the regular testing? Two hours after the test I may have caught the virus. What now? What good did it do? How often do you test? Testing only tells you for a moment in time.

    It was addressed to several people. It has been answered several times. You just do not like the answers so we get this continued doubling down from you.

    I hope you recover.

    You can continue this hypocrisy of not answering questions and then badgering people with false claims they did not answer your questions or you can take the high road and debate and discuss like an adult.

    I actually never mentioned testing until after you started badgering about it. The focus of this discussion has been on quarantine. That has been what I have been discussing.

    You do not seem to care if you get the virus and do not want to have anything impose upon your person no matter what it does to the rest of the world. I suppose in an air raid you would be the one with your lights on and your curtains back. Nobody gonna tell you to do something intelligent.

    You only quoted the section you wanted.

    You were the one ignoring how the word is used.



    Psst notice the verb uses the noun which is about medical issues.

    Quarantines are typically enforced by governments not the public. When the public does it there is usually there is a dispute between demographics. In Europe centuries ago quarantine sections were typically in the Jewish and poor areas.

    "The verb uses the noun".

    And the cheese stands alone.

    No, but I can guarantee that if you keep it up it'll impact your ability to make any points here at all.
