Japan Today should be fined and labeled for this!

Its hard to believe they would post this rubbish with a straight face, but they did. They should be fined a healthy sum and forever have a disclaimer attached to their site that labels it a tabloid one should not take seriously. What utter garbage from a garbage site anyway.

How do you think this should be "welcomed"?

If I am not mistaken, all these foreign owned news outlets attempt to do the TMZ thing.
This Sara Nobody is trying to push an agenda as well.

MoZ - what's your main objection to the story?
It is a tabloid story - it orignally came from StarbucksNews24 as do quite a few of their articles, which is a tabloid site, but they do source their articles, so although it may be rather sensationalist it probably isn't made up.

The mozzie got banned from commenting on japantoday's site, so he relieves himself here.

Sounds a hell of a lot more like YOU are the one relieving himself here.

At this point, I might have asked you to either add to the topic at hand or FO. But I think at this point I will say, just FO. And FO from all my future threads too. Nobody needs your troll crap. FO for good. I am absolutely done with you.

Thinness of information plus others deeming it fake made me think it was fake. Perhaps I was wrong. Thanks.

The guy died. Seems he had prior medical conditions. As such, corona may have seemed like a death sentence to him, and if he thought so, he may have been right. Of course, his behavior may have been the key factor that sent him to the grave, its hard to tell. But the fact the hospital sent him home looks REALLY bad now.

Thanks for the update. Wow, what a jerk. A dead jerk that is. I wonder if his parents recovered.

A lot of people are calling him a jerk. But I think its important to realize he was staring death in the eyes. Few people handle that well though they all act like they will be like Einstein and say at death's door "I shall do it elegantly".

It's not a matter of being graceful or not. It's a matter of not being evil.
I may never know but I would like to think that when I'm facing death, I won't attempt to bring others with me.

I would not trust the press on that. If he said he wanted to enjoy his last moments with bar girls and alcohol and did not care if he spread the virus, the press would say he "He wanted to....spread the virus." Heck, so would the police. Heck, neither even needs that much to go on.

But anyway, if you come to hate the world (and I find that a very easy thing to do recently) and the world hands you a death sentence, you may lose your mind. And if you lose your mind all bets are off.
