 no, just no... thank you stankdawg, cobra2, and others for speaking against attempts at censorship. i am willing to explore all viewpoints. i would not like for episodes to become an argument back and forth. i am good with information being presented regardless of the messenger. the narrative of misinformation is troubling, so i will add some more...
  the u.k. produces periodical reports, and posts them at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/investigation-of-novel-sars-cov-2-variant-variant-of-concern-20201201 . in the most recent report "SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern and variants under investigation in England: technical briefing 23" published at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1018547/Technical_Briefing_23_21_09_16.pdf
 , on pages 19-20 there is a chart. a basic odds ratio analysis
 performed on this data clearly shows a higher risk of death from the
 "delta varient" for those who have been treated with these injections.
 to help some understand this, the data shows 257357 cases amongst the
 unvaccinated with 722 "deaths within 28 days of positive specimen", or
 0.2805%. the chart shows 157400 cases amongst those who recieved two
 doses at least 14 days prior to positive test with 1613 "deaths within
 28 days of positive specimen", or 1.0248%. that is an odds ratio of
 3.6534 to 1. in the summary at the begining of that document a claim
 is made that 2 doses of the vaccine are 90-95% effective against
 mortality. are they lying? is their data flawed? how do i assess what
 is "misinformation"?
