A guiding principle to keeping a forum intact is to avoid discussing religion or politics. These subjects sometimes transcend reason and evoke heated feelings.
B. Jan's article about the COVID virus epidemic is political and supports our president's position that the virus is a political hoax. It would be better if he would stick to motorcycles and leave medicine to those with credentials.
This article is hurtful to those who have lost a loved one and watched them die alone. It is also hurtful to those with family members who are working in hospitals treating the sick.
I have said my piece and don't intend to start a war of words. I just felt B. Jan's article deserved a response.

Back to fixing my bike which gives me great satisfaction.

I agree and Thank You for your statement.
As someone with Leukemia, and immunocompromised, plus losing 2 relatives to the virus, there should be words of Compassion, not politics. Or about Airheads.

Well said. You are expressing with much more tact and diplomacy than what I had in mind. I found the article not just political in nature, but littered with ignorance and arrogance. Time for B. Jan to retire from editorship. This should never have been published.

I would urge you all to keep Canon 7 in mind:
"7. Airheads don't take themselves, religion or life too seriously. "

B. Jan's opinions may not be popular, but they are designed to create controversy, and judging from these comments, he has succeeded. In fact, we've had at least one member cancel their membership because of them. I'm not defending him, but you can always just turn the page if you find the material offensive, no?

And you can always forward your concerns to B. Jan at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Spreading misinformation in a public health emergency should never just be ignored by turning the page. It needs to be called out.

And when you say "I would urge you all to keep Canon 7 in mind," you all includes the editor. Correct?
