Set that only for that site? Is it a browser setting or an extension setting?

Don't remember but seems to be an extension

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookie-autodelete/
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cookie-autodelete/fhcgjolkccmbidfldomjliifgaodjagh?hl=en

It is definitely a main part of the bypass paywalls extension I've posted about a number of times.

So he goes on about how epidemics don't kill healthy populations. Maybe he should come visit NYC. Them he says that Sweden didn't have mass deaths. Not really relevant to his argument. You should point him to the thread here about Sweden.

FTFY. I guess it's not just a progressive machlah.

I believe it's healthy to read ideas and opinions one might not agree with.

In the responses to his thread is the following rebuttal:

Its important to realize that not all viewpoints are created equal. You neednt wad through tomes on whether Bush did 9/11, the CIA killed Kennedy, vaccines are a vast conspiracy to cause autism, the Jews have a secret society designed to take over the world, Armstrong really landed in Nevada, the world is run by lizard people, or any of the millions of nonsensical conspiracy theories propagated by people who are looking to exploit peoples navet and fear to gain fame, money, or power to know that for every fact there are a thousand fictions. Its important to be able to filter out the chaff and pay attention to the valid viewpoints whether or not we agree with them.

An easy way to separate a garbage viewpoint from a valid one is when there are outright falsehoods. Like this

Quote
No pandemic since has killed more than pneumonia kills every year.

Or this

Quote
Why did Belarus, Turkmenistan, Nicaragua & Sweden witness no mass death?

Someone posted something similar to this months ago arguing against the premature use of ventilators for this very reason. Was a medium article that was taken down for COVID misinformation. Now I see this article being paraded around by the experts.

The more we continue to learn about the virus iyh the more successful we will be in fighting it.

What does that definitively tell us about the immunity numbers for SARS-CoV3 (or even SARS-CoV2) for people infected with SARS-CoV2...

I found this article fascinating and very eye-opening, but I haven't seen a lot of these points mentioned elsewhere, and since I know that a lot of the science is unclear and not always agreed upon, I'd be curious to hear fellow DDFers take on the following:

This has been going around. Assuming her facts are correct, this could be useful in considering shul reopening.

It tells on us nothing about Sars-cov3.

It doesn't definitively tell us anything about Sars-cov2 but it suggests that immunity will we long lasting.

To a lessor degree it proposes that some amount of the population already has immunity.

Some will see; dossier, articles and studies can and will be fabricated and pushed on MMM, but wont see the fact that its been safe for 60 yrs and  millions of ppl keep taking it.

Interesting DPs there.

Though a question that popped into my mind when he points out HK, is the face mask issue.
