Valuable News – 2021/10/25

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

    I used to really enjoy this site until you went full on nut job anti-vax.

    You just cherry pick easily debunked random articles implying that people shouldn’t get vaccinated. Your first one only tries to correlate vaccination rates with infections, not infection rate, no inclusion of population density or mobility, nothing. Worthless. It also ignores that people who had the vaccine and tested positive weren’t even necessarily ill! Not only does the vaccine make you 5x less likely to get the virus but it makes you 10x less likely to get seriously ill or die. Your second article is based on people reporting to VAERS which is meaningless. It’s just crazy vax people or hypochondriacs, none of that is verified. Six deaths, even if attributable to the vaccine, after a few billion doses given is nothing, it’s completely negligible.

      You can still enjoy it you know πŸ™‚

      I should not share my medical data but what the hell – I have taken most vaccines that are available – I even recently got the jab against the yellow-skinned disease because I needed it before my knee surgery. Looking at the available data and reports – and sticking to the facts – all C19 vaccines are not tested and are not approved – its important to stay alert and mistrustful – at least till the time that they would be fully tested and approved as all other safe vaccines – which mostly takes more then 10 years for all stages and all that process. What is more important – making this untested/experimental vaccines a ‘mandatory’ thing to being able to work and live is plain fucking stupid and irresponsible.
