    Closed Thread

    So why was the "anyone choosing not to be vaccinated" thread closed?

    I'm not the one who closed it, but I don't have any issue with the decision. It was almost all bickering back and forth, and we already have multiple COVID threads on the site where vaccines are being debated.

    It's unfortunate because it was the one thread where we actually had diversity over whether one was going to opt for a vaccine or not. In that thread we actually had those choosing not to get a vaccine defending their position. Such discourse is rare on RZ and MODs killed it. Not good

    If the discussion is inevitably go the way that thread did, I'd rather the thread be in the politics area since it requires opting in to with the understanding moderation in that area will be relatively limited. Additionally, my preference for the non-politics area has always been to keep COVID discussion limited to the single thread we still have open. If you or someone else wants to start a new thread to discuss this in the politics sub-forum, feel free.

    If that's where you're coming from, I'd have much preferred the MODs merge the 2 threads rather than abruptly closing it

    I appreciate your efforts but you've moved it to a closed thread and moved it to the political section where very few folks participate. Just sayin'...

    I was clear why any continuation needed to be in that area, so that was by design. The thread I merged it with ended up being closed because merging the two threads pushed the post count over 1,000, which is why another moderator closed it, as is customary. Again, if you'd like to continue that discussion, feel free to start a new thread in the sub-forum, and anyone who wishes to participate can do so. If they don't have access to that area, they can request it, and we'll grant it.
