    On these fora some folks seem to be in denial.

    For example

    Daily death toll is 439 reported on the 6th April...

    still claiming it not exponential?

    Why are you posting a graph of deaths when some of us are busy at home dealing with real individual deaths?
    Why are you saying "I'm right and somebody else is wrong" about the actual graph.
    How thick skinned.
    Right now who cares who is right and who is wrong?

    There are enough graphs of death to avoid looking at the news for.
    Please don't post death graphs.
    It is not comprehensible. it does not compute. It just shocks.

    Later. Argue about who's got the biggest graph later. When it's done. If that is what fulfills you.
    But not right now when each of us has their own personal circumstance to come to terms with.
    Involving one of those deaths in your graph, you just don't know, do you?

    Denial of what? That people are dying?

    My issue was with the term 'exponential' ... how is that denial?

    And it was a valid point on the 23rd March, two weeks ago... also, that 439 is a drop from 619 on the 5th April... and drop from 708 from the 4th April...

    So how is it growing when it's now dropping? :confused:

    Now, stop trying to pick a fight over death figures...

    Why say that and then...post a graph about death figures?
    Stop it.

    Edit-as also stated in post above!

    It's the moderators job to police what people post. There is a report button you can use if you don't like what they have to contribute.

    No, the report button is not for when you don't like something.
    It is for when something breaks the rules.
    And the opening post does not break any rules.
    I just don't like it.
    So I said so, and I gave my reasons.
    I hardly expect everyone to agree.
    It's just what I think.

    I also think you are confusing me stating an opinion for policing a situation.

    I am aware that some people do use the report button simply because they do not like something, which is a shame, because it indicates an inability to simply say what they think. Or cowardice. Or spite.

    You are asking people to post their graphs later. Not right now.

    They can post their graphs when they want.
