  1. For some reason I thought my membership must be expired - thank goodness some web article sent me to the DI website - so i thought I'd check back in and.... I am alive! LOL
  2. The Psychology of getting you to make the choice regarding the Vaccine. Blame, Judgement and Coercion. The tactics of the bully are being put to trial. Yale University is trialling/testing for the most effective way to 'Message' the populations to comply with taking a Vaccine - and it reveals not one vaccination but 2; 3 months apart. Full article and analysis at CoreysDigs - https://www.coreysdigs.com/health-science/vax-zealots-try-to-put-their-message-in-a-bottle/ EXTRACT: Vax Zealots Try to Put Their Message in A Bottle By James Fitzgerald The clinical trial states, under “guilt”: “1/5 of the sample will be assigned to this message. The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and society must work together to get enough people vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease.” ----- The “trust in science” narrative states “Vaccination is backed by science. If one doesn’t get vaccinated that means that one doesn’t understand how infections are spread or who ignores science.” ----- It continues, under “bravery”: “… firefighters, doctors and frontline medical workers are brave. Those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are not brave.” “1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this group, which is a message about how COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the economy and the only way to strengthen the economy is to work together to get enough people vaccinated,” states a message on economic grounds. ----- FROM THE CLINICAL TRIALS GOV SITE U.S. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04460703?term=Vaccine&cond=Covid19&cntry=US&draw=2 The Study says: "This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available." "We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available between the 10 intervention arms to the 2 control arms." Sham Comparator: Control Control message about birdfeeding Other: Control message 2/15 of the sample will be assigned to the pure control group, which is a passage on the costs and benefits of bird feeding. Active Comparator: Baseline message These participants will be assigned a message about the benefits of vaccination. All other treatment arms include this baseline language. Other: Baseline message 3/15 of the sample will be assigned to a control group with a message about the effectiveness and safety of vaccines. Experimental: Personal freedom Experimental message arm.

Experimental: Economic freedom Experimental message arm. Other: Economic freedom message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message about how COVID-19 is limiting peoples's economic freedom and by working together to get enough people vaccinated society can preserve its economic freedom.

Other: Self-interest message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message that COVID-19 presents a real danger to one's health, even if one is young and healthy.

Other: Community interest message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message about the dangers of COVID-19 to the health of loved ones.

  3. My post was more in line with looking at some of the situations going on there. I'm interested to see where Victoria's Experiment takes the Country - these steps are part of something much bigger (as we know). Even trying to find information on certain things such as the fines took me more time than I wanted to spend on it. I found reading the comment sections in the papers interesting - The comments selected to be published from one news article I see are dividing themselves and communities by postcodes and economic circumstance. Blame and Judgement seem to be high on the list of responses. I don't always assume the comments are from real people - or sane ones.
  4. Coronavirus Victoria: Anti-mask protesters still plan on attending Extract from article: https://www.news.com.au/national/victoria/news/coronavirus-victoria-antimask-protesters-still-plan-on-attending/news-story/044f3103eaf7d72a3fdbb805d31ddbb6 The demonstration, dubbed “Freedom Day Rally”, is due to take place on the steps of Victoria’s parliament on Sunday morning. Up to 100 people plan to attend with another 400 interested. “The Australian governments are destroying our country and our people, our families, our businesses and our peace through spreading totally unfounded fear and panic based on unfounded premises that there is a SARSCoV2 virus,” the man said, who goes on to claim COVID-19 has “never been scientifically defined”. “This absolute load of total unscientific rubbish is being used to destroy our peace, our country, our families, our economy, our future.” (Police Response)“This selfish behaviour will absolutely not be tolerated. Be assured Victoria Police will be responding and will take appropriate action," the statement said. “There will be a highly visible presence in and around the city to ensure the community is complying with stage 4 restrictions.” Police said they would “have no hesitation in issuing $1652 fines or making arrests on the day, if necessary” and promised they were “also making inquiries into the organisers of this event and we will be holding them to account”. Victoria, and more specifically Melbourne, is living under some of the strictest coronavirus restrictions the world has seen. From August 2, every Victorian was required to wear a mask when leaving their home, or face a $200 fine from police. ----------------------------------------------------- The Fine amounts are ... https://www.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-covid-19-restrictions-victoria#fines-for-breaches-of-directives-and-isolation Fines for breaches of directives and isolation The fine for not wearing a face covering, without lawful excuse, while mandated in Victoria is $200. The fine for breaching Stay at Home orders is $1652 on the spot, which can be extended through the Magistrates' Court for repeat offenders to a maximum of $10,000. The fine for breaching isolation orders for a second or subsequent time after testing positive for coronavirus is $4957 on the spot, which can be extended through the Magistrates' Court for repeat offenders to a maximum of $20,000.
  5. I'd like a button that basically says "I read your post - thanks for your contribution" - I has nothing to do with if it needs liking or disliking, its just part of the thread and the ongoing conversation. This also helps me to know where I'm up to in reading the thread when I return.
  6. So glad to see this thread back up and running - Thanks @EnigmaticWorld
  7. Nice to be back - and nice to see you and everyone still here - considering whats happened - sheesh! Thanks so much for the info. I'll get right onto it! Cheers!
  8. I've just stumbled back in here - OMG - what in the heck has been going on! I've noticed that Cloud F has also been following me around the net. If you're on Y T keep an eye out for the lock symbol on the address bar - there are times when it will say 'Not secure' randomly. Capt iva is in overdrive also. Im sick of clicking on fire hydrants, trucks and crossings. I wondered what was going on. Any one else experiencing stuff with the ones I mentioned above? Also, whats the best approach now with passwords? Is there another thread for that somewhere.
