The New York Times article is ruined by all the Pandemic BS and made me look no further so I missed the link below it The lower link is very good and worth a read. "Fauxvid" is closer to reality than covid.

I note that you are a "Pilgrim" on this forum. Best to reserve your comments to actually addressing the topic instead of expressing your opinions on unrelated matters. You can go to the dark web for that.

His status as a pilgrim (supporting pilgrim) has zero to do with it. He can say what any of us can. I'm a "cannon" and have no more rights to spew than him???

Vintovka may be listed as a "pilgrim" but he has 621 messages and has been a member since 2011, but as azmntman said that doesn't make any difference he can say anything that any other member says.
