Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.  Most of these go via commercial carrier, any surface contamination is dead long before it gets to it's destination.   The thread isn't unethical, people who violate quarrantine to go buy toys are unethical- and possibly spreading contagion.

 

We're due a new thread any minute now and this one will be locked up anyway.

 

I want to see a fresh start with April's thread.  All pandemic talk will be removed, let's cheer-up!    Talk about the scopes, not driving to pick them up and the moral dilemma that entails at present.  

 

Thanks!

Yes, I agree.  Coming into these forums is a like an escape and I don't like the constant little reminders.

 

 And let's not confuse quarantine with being sequestered. 

 

Those that do not have the virus are sequestered.

 

Those that have it are quarantined.

 

I am sequestered, and I'm glad for the difference.

Time to close this up and start again.
