Also agree.

We probably all have moments of black humour in the current circumstances, but one man's joke is another's bad tatse bordering on offensive.. and we don't know who on the list might have close relatives currently seriously ill with the virus.

It's different on e.g. Twitter which we all know can be a bear pit at times, but I think we need to be a lot more circumspect on hobby mailing lists.

Over on the TS-590 groups site we had members posting the latest Covid-19 Memes to which they thought would brighten somebody's day.

Spamming all 2632 members of the TS-590 groups.io site with Fakebook Memes is NOT what this site is for. More importantly, how would you react
if somebody you love is stricken with the virus and denied treatment due to an overwhelmed hospital and succumbs to the virus. Looking at the ages of hams at local clubs and flea markets, I would put a large percentage of hams in the 'danger zone'.
From the CDC site: 80% of deaths associated with COVID-19 were among adults aged ≥65 years with the highest percentage of severe outcomes among persons aged ≥85 years.

When it's all said and done (year from now?), there will be plenty of TS-590's and IC-7300's available from estate sales from this aging group.
There... I included the TS-590 in my post.😁

Like Kriss said: If you send a message to this group, it gets multiplied by abt 2600. It's not your group of close friends, it's a group of worldwide radio operators. Because this is a group for the TS-590, everything else is considered as spam. Let's hope 10m opens a bit in current CQ WPX SSB contest. Get on your TS-590 and check it out. 73 Ulf DK5TX
As of this AM there are 6,615 members in this group, of all walks of life, all over the globe. What might be humorous in the USA just might not be so welcome in Italy. We are only a few weeks behind Italy, and more populous, our hell is only about to begin... look at NYC.
OK... said my peace, let the thread die.

Again, just y own two-cents and worth exactly what you paid for it,

Friends,

Please take very special care during this period.

If you die, your partner might sell all your gear for what they think you paid for it.

Even worse, your kids will just send it to landfill.

Please make arrangements for passing valuable equipment to worthy valued friends.
