The Powers That Be are upset with me for referring to the coronas virus which apear first in the Wuhan Province of China as the "Chinese Flu", hinting that such referencing could be viewed as "racist". It does appear that the Zhodani are not the only thought police in the Traveller Universe. I am not sure if they would have been upset if I followed the line if the Chinese and Iranian governments in blaming the US for developing the visur is some incredibly secret biological weapons lab and then unleashing it on the poor, unsuspecting Chinese, Iraninans, Italians, and Hew York City residents. Given the West Coast residence of some of the moderators, I think that they may share those views.

The Harassment from the various moderators is one reason why I have cut back on visiting and posting to the forum. Why bother posting when all you are going to get is grief for not following the line acceptable to them. That is an excellent way of reducing creativity on the forums. That definitely has soured me on working on anything related to Traveller. I have debated posted a query on what are people doing who find themselves with extra time on their hands, but I hesitate to do so. One of the things that I am working through is a two volume history of the Protestant Reformation, but I suspect that I would be dinged for ,mentioning that dreaded subject of Real World religion. Extremely nasty created religions for Traveller probably would be welcomed however, to fit the published Traveller view that religions and evil and can only be opposed by all right-thinking Travellers.

I will miss Gary Con in Lake Geneva not being held, as I was hoping to at least sell my copy of Agent of the Imperium. That looks like it will have to be postponed for a while. I need to think about the hard copies of T5.19 as well. Right now, Games Plus in Mount Prospect is closed for a while.
