Ok, I've been trying to let this go because I've participated in the thread.
THIS THREAD IS ABOUT: the propriety of saying "negative" things about those who have died in the immediate wake of their passing. Because it was implicitly about JAL, there was some latitude in exploring what was said about him [namely, comparing that conversation to the behavior described in the opening post]. To explore the issue adequately, we did have to make observations that would otherwise be off topic. The observations were made. Counterobservations were made. Ok, fine.
THIS THREAD IS NOT ABOUT:
COVID and the best ways to prevent its spread.
Future posts that are not on topic will be deleted without warning or apology.
