    So, as you know, there is a new pandemic: the coronavirus.

    I want to know your opinion if people around you (based of your own experiences) are taking the pandemic too far (such as fighting over toilet paper), or if they are taking the proper procedures (and not overreacting to it) to stop the spread of it).

    Fourth answer: I don't live in USA and whatever shit USA is doing has nothing to do with me.

    Most people on this forum are not American. What if I ask you about your opinion whether Vatican is taking it too far :)

    I'm honestly not sure at this point. I know media does often exaggerate things.
    I think he was asking about people in general, and just used the US as an example, since the virus is in most of the world already.

    So you're looking for an "in general" answer that applies to both lockdowns and "you don't need masks if you aren't sick". Good question.

    I wasn't the one asking. I was just clarifying the question for you.

    That's why the poll makes no sense. Apparently some countries take it too far and some countries should be safety first and some countries are in the middle. Asking about the issue in the whole world without specification is not meaningful.

    It depends on how you, the reader, interpret it. I am asking for people, in their opinion, if people are taking it too far. That would be based on their own experience, which makes up their vote, which is their opinion.

    So this poll ends up as a demographic survey on the forum population.

    They, asking these kind of question, STILL are trying to trust some government which is notorious for talking sh*t, or some organization. Yeah non-sense.

    I was clearly asking for the opinion of others on the specified topic. It shows nothing about the demographics. For example, someone in the USA could think the government is overreacting, or, "taking it too far", while someone else in the USA could think the government is taking proper procedure, or, "safety first". The only demographics that have ever been brought up is when I used the USA as an example, and when you used Vatican as an example. This opinion is merely based off the experiences of the person.

    Governments may be questionable, but less questionable than those unreliable sources of information.

    No.
    The problem is that opinion on what? The panic? Safety procedures or comments on the tik tok girl licking the toilet seat on the plane, etc.
    I have already pointed out 3 topic, which one you want? General idea? That's fine, but you are way too general
    btw the data from this forum is not reliable, why are you looking for such data? :D

    I just want the opinion of other people on this forum. I'm not looking for anything.

    Ok, I see your point. Was probably SOFe's point too. I'll rephrase the question

    My point is that whatever results you get in the poll, it is directly related to the demographics of the users. For example, trying to ask a group of people "do you think the female toilet is too crowded" in a shopping complex without considering the gender of respondents would result in an answer that varies almost directly with the variance of gender ratio, which has a variance of 25% in general, much greater than the variance you might expect to even get from a reasonable survey.
