The new Edge is just a skin on Chrome.

People that won't wear masks because they're "sure" they had it or they "have antibodies."

People that say everyone should wear face diapers, and hates on anyone who chooses not to because they're drama queens.

I'm confirmed antibody positive. I can't be passing covid germs to anybody.  why should I wear a mask?
(I assume we should, if we chooses to continue, move this to one of the numerous covid threads.)

Maybe the thread called Masks?  But as long as I'm here, the reasons to wear a mask are
  • to avoid exhaling covid germs that may infect others
  • to avoid inhaling covid germs that may get you sick
  • to avoid touching your nose and mouth with hands that may contain covid germs
  • to contribute to the creation of a social environment in which mask-wearing is accepted and expected
You think you're immune to covid, so 1-3 don't apply, but 4 does. 
I'm sure you agree that those who are currently infected, or who haven't been infected yet should be wearing a mask to protect themselves and others.  But people don't want to stick out from the crowd, and those who should wear a mask may reject it for this reason.  Your wearing a mask helps encourage mask-wearing by those who really need to.

4 alone is a weak reason that although true and virtuous wont convince the public.

Let's be honest... everyone in israel wears masks and its spreading there. Masks are cute and nice but they don't actually have enough of a meaningful impact to make anyone who had covid to take care about it. And look at whats going on around us, people are literally destroying cities, defunding police departments and creating total anarchy in the streets. You think these same guys care about what any dr or official says... they don't. Thats why masks will most likely  never be widespread in the us.
