The full name is

Coronavirus Disease 2019

19 simply means it first appeared in humans in 2019. / Was discovered at that time. So not the scientific family.

Key part:

Gaps in Preparedness Crimson Contagion exercised a nationwide pandemic influenza response, testing current plans, policies, and procedures, as well as the nation’s core capability to respond. This exercise was the largest pandemic exercise to date ... The exercise found that, in the event of a pandemic:

If vaccine development and procurement for medical countermeasures is needed above current capacity, additional funding would likely be required.

The U.S. lacks sufficient domestic manufacturing capacity and/or raw materials for ... personal protective equipment, including masks, needles, and syringes. Further, in a pandemic, global manufacturing capacity will likely not be sufficient to meet demand, resulting in an inability to import adequate quantities of medial countermeasures.

To that point, supply chain issues are among the most significant challenges to preparing for an influenza pandemic as well as other infectious diseases. Today, we are dependent on receipt of active ingredients in America’s pharmaceutical and over the counter drugs come from China and India; this dependency also extends beyond pharmaceuticals and includes auxiliary medical supplies such as syringes and gloves3 . This dramatic shift in the manufacture of medicines is very recent in origin. In the 1990s the U.S., Europe, and Japan manufactured ninety percent of the global supply of the key ingredients for the world’s medicines and vitamins. Now, China is the largest global supplier.

Lots of lefties constantly f5-ing the site waiting for the chance to start posting then immediately reporting "rule breaking" content.

They also vote

I see a technical problem with this plan. Let's say Wray is fired and this guy is nominated.

How do we know the current number two isn't someone like McCabe who is even worse than Comey in that example? Then if the Senate takes any time on the confirmation there is so much damage that he could do.

Let's not forget Mueller got in while McCabe was director. Feels like not a coincidence.

Yes, when we had enough mods we had the capacity to ban accounts like this. But with so much traffic going over so few mods it's becoming impossible probably.

Imagine what would they post if there was no lockdown...

What sick shit they would try to pin on Trump supporters sensing an opportunity with so few mods.

Yes, this is very good, but it only shows the "top ten" so to speak in a verifiable way. I'm looking for the full, complete list. Someone must have taken a screenshot. I should have taken one since I was a mod before the purge, but it was always easier to assume this info would be saved somewhere. I realized too late that archival websites no longer properly work.

Previously you could archive the full modlist like this :

It's insane to have better, more accurate records from 2016, than from 2020 ... But this seems to be the situation due to Reddit's quarantine

That's not the case. One mod who survived the purge commented in the admins thread :Something like : 'thanks but we don't need your help, we can vet and add new mods ourselves.'

And they purged him that same day.

Did you not read the post where the Reddit admins declare that they will "vet" any new moderators?

Do you think anyone who supports Trump could get through "reddit admin vetting"?

Thanks this is very useful. A bit older but very accurate. Now if we could get like this from mid February or so, it would be golden

That's the post purge list unfortunately. It's good to have but we also need one just before the purge.

And even the post-list keeps changing as Reddit continues the purge of removing Trump-supporting mods. If you compare the post-purge list https://i.imgur.com/OvCjX6o.png with the current list https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/about/moderators you can immediately see lali is missing for example.

He was purged after the main purge... They keep going and will be satisfied with nothing less than 100% of Trump supporters being removed.

So that's my very long-winded opinion. The sub has served its purpose, but it's time to nuke it and move on.

This is the issue. How do you nuke it in technical terms, when Reddit as a company owns the website.

Let's say you try to nuke it, you push a button. 5 minutes later a reddit admin can revert what you did. We don't even have to imagine what button you'd push since everything you can think of they can undo since they have control of the whole website.

In technical terms It's not possible. Any action you can take as a mod an admin can easily revert.

They removed me in the first batch without any explanation, not even a single link to what was the allegation. I suspect they were absolutely lying about any violations of the content policy, and deliberately smearing people with such generalized language so the press will think "Oh they must have done something illegal then."

The bad faith is evident in refusing to show any cause for removal (thus every still remaining mod can be removed at any time similarly without cause) and getting involved in "vetting". The second one shows that the removals weren't for any "violations of the content policy" they were done only to provide justification for adding their own moderators to take over T_D completely.

Bloomberg talking about buying Democrats is the funniest thing in that debate, no contest.

Did they really try to take it down so soon?

We got the same type of message given to the criminals engaged in "wrongthink" by upvoting content using the feature provided by Reddit. No link to anything that you did wrong, just a generalized message that you are undesirable and will be removed.

If anything leaks from Burisma they will just ignore it or claim they were "stolen emails".
