  4. Great question! Unfortunately, that isn't what we do and I suspect the author of the posts wouldn't be too happy about it. Also, the steps to do something like that on this system are tedious. Too many roadblocks stand in the way of this suggestion, but I do appreciate your asking! I do like this idea of having one single covid discussion thread here. It has been difficult to keep discussions on topic, and we have been limiting most removals to "political arguements/disagreements/discussions". Still from what I have witnessed on ALL forums here on Cruise Critic, covid spreads just as easily into topics as it does in the real world. Let's give it a try; see if it works here! PS: Wannabee moderators please don't run around all other posts reporting covid discussions. Thanks for your help. Laura
