I seem to clearly remember blood clots from AstraZeneca being a huge thing that lead to it being pulled. What makes you say they'll be forever dishonest about the effect when they were clearly open and honest about consequences after only a few weeks?

I don't disagree with you that it's legit to put it out there, but I'd like to see the link being made by researchers who's conducting actual research that can be peer-reviewed and replicated.

But on the other hand, when the death are difficult to explain to begin with, how would you differentiate between those that died as a result of getting the vaccine and those who would have died anyway?

Considering how many have gotten the vaccine, unless the unvaccinated cases from 2022 are equal or larger than the total from 2019, it would be almost impossible to link a single death to vaccines

It's a recipe for confirmation basis: "0% of SADS had the covid vaccine in 2019, 5% more total cases in 2022 and 75% of the dead were vaccinated. Yup, vaccines cause more SADS."

As a comment about other media, I don't know about Reddit, but Twitter does not remove content trying to link SADS to covid vaccines. That's where I've had most of the discussions.

My assumption might have been wrong, but 10 out of 10 times I've seen these kinds of posts someone is trying to link (covid) vaccines to a new kind of unexplained death / heart failure that has never been seen before 2020.

And if nothing else, you can see the first anti-vaxxer going at my comment within minutes, lol. The information doesn't hurt.

Why do we pretend women are good at programming, science, and engineering? by sneako in AskSaidIt

Because they'd get into the latter if they tried.

The whole point of affirmative action is to get someone in somewhere they aren't good enough to get in by themselves. In reality, they are just creating Token employees and degrading any profession hit by this.

Woah there, remember earlier, when I said people died of AstraZeneca vaccines in your thread?

The only thing I promote is facts and science with sources.

How does that karma gate work?

Is it sub specific karma, or sitewide, so that it basically just stops newly created accounts?

Is there a cap to how high the requirement can be set?

But there were actually people who died after getting the AstraZeneca vaccine.

That's why it got pulled in many countries.

Isn't the whole point of "insightful" and "funny" to promote just this? The absense of karma and karmafarmers alone makes a huge difference.

I say let loose and let the market mechanisms lift up the good!

This place rocks, but it needs ways to be supported in order to become even better.

Free speech is great, but there still needs to be rules regarding behaviour like personal attacks, brigading, and promoting or calling for hate or persecution. But permanent bans still shouldn't be a thing, 28 days is enough to send a message.

I only hope this place stay civilized as it grows.

Since hate speech is allowed here... by Arapaho_Joe in whatever

[–]Tronski 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It does help if we also just keep using the words correctly.

Hate speech would entail promoting or calling for hate and persecution, for no other reason than someone being different.

That should never be ok. But now we aren't even allowed to hate people who does avtive harm, unless they say it's ok to hate them, of course.

[–]Tronski 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah, it's exactly because all of it individually can be explained by something else you need a professional to see if the whole picture fits. There is nothing unique about ADHD, you just get more of the shitty parts than those without it. The only real difference between 4 and 5 is upping the age limit from 7 to 12, making it easier, and in many cases possible, to get diagnosed later in life.
