Best wishes to him and his family. Hopefully it will be a mild case.

Perhaps our developer would like to explain his comment. We wouldn't want members to get the wrong idea.

I would hope all who oppose him want a swift and full recovery out of both a sense of human decency and a desire to beat him on the merits.

I am sure that Jimmo is drawing attention to the use of skull symbolism in Buddhist and Hindu traditions, as a reminder of the mortality of man and the natural progression of life and death.

I hope he becomes very ill and suffers a great deal, yet also that he makes a recovery. Thus he can experience the pain and suffering that his wilfully incompetent leadership has caused for thousands of America's citizens.

Biden and Chris Wallace should immediately get tested.

All the Trump guests at the debate except Melania refused to wear provided masks. Trump held a fundraiser in New Jersey after being with positive tested Hope Hicks.

No more debates? Will the next ones be cancelled while Trump is sick?

I believe the next one was scheduled for 13 days away. Not sure what the US quarantine laws are, but assuming a mild case (as in the vast majority of cases) one would imagine a couple of weeks would be sufficient. In which case logistically speaking there's no obstacle of any real significance to overcome. Politically speaking, it gives both of them an excuse to escape if they wish.

Estimates place Trump at ~4.2% chance of dieing.

That said he may be getting better treatment than most: https://twitter.com/ZekeEmanuel/status/ ... 79489?s=19

I will note that he is taking Vitamin D, which can help moderate the immune responce, and reduce the severity of symptoms (it is so cheap and safe that everyone should be getting it regardless of anything else...)

If there is any silver lining out of Trump having a bit of a scare, I hope it encourages people to take the illness more seriously. It is frustrating that a significant portion of the population in the US believes coronavirus is a hoax or a conspiracy. Trump shoulders a significant amount of blame for these sorts of beliefs being widespread.

The ban emoji? Yeah so it's a code that we put into the phpbb3 forum that allows people to place a skull icon on the forum if you type : b a n n e d : without the spaces. To make the forum more fun we placed a few custom ones like this on the emoji options aside from the normally available ones. Let me know if you have any more questions about them!

To make the forum more fun you responded to a thread about an old man getting sick with a skull emoji? I'm still kind of hoping I'm missing something here.
