I would not. First of all, I'm likely to be asked 'what does covering mean?' I'd rather not waste my time. Most folks have not even heard of the concept. The announcements on the train also need to detail how to (([automated announcement])"cover cough and sneeze"), as 90% of the population never do it!

One overreaction seems to be able to cause armageddon. I've even heard of admins on another forum being complete jerks causing certain users to leave for good. And who do folks report this to?

I agree, I just get up and move if someone is coughing because saying something could go wrong and im in the "Getting a life sentence" situation at the moment.

I agree, it shows a hatred for this country, if it wasn't for the Europeans all Australians would still be walking around living in the bush, sometimes I think that's what they must want. I remember about 15 years ago I had a John laws voicemail it was funny back when we had better flip phones.

I never hear loud music come from buses, I assume it must be the large space they have and most of the windows are sealed shut.

We were just talking about that incident on another site, we've sadly reached a point where society wants others to suffer rather than abide by some simple rules that can not only keep yourself out of danger but others as well. Asking people to do one simple thing for safety is too much nowdays.

This really is taking the whole "If I'm going to suffer, so can you" attitude to a whole new level.

Alot of these criminals would be "Off their tree" mixed with not giving a S&#T, lack of values, that's why I wouldn't say anything because eventually the bus will reach there stop.

A few years back I used to know a couple of bus drivers that would do that while driving at night.

No Getaway, Ayers Rock is not the world's largest rock, Mount Augusts in Western Australia is.

Edit: Fixed spelling of Mount Augustus.

People that say; This person made me do it or they were asking for it or this person had a horrific life so they are obviously not going to be normal or I can't walk up to her and ask her out she might reject me or my dad was a criminal so that's why I have a s&*t life, unless you have some serious clinical mental illness you are responsible for your own actions and thoughts once people realise this the possibilities are endless.

• Young pushbike riders that almost ran pedestrians over on a footpath in a shopping centre - must have been around 40 kmh on the footpath. But security saw them on CCTV.

• How many more times do I have to tell people to cover their hands, I mean mouths when they cough. It was not just one loud cough, but several coughs while looking at his mobile phone. He claimed he did cover his mouth, but I saw that he didn't.

• Vehicles taking up multiple spaces.

ADD: The ABC - the sooner it's privatised the better.

That reminds me of at least 4 idiots I saw today walk out in front of trams like stoners, the trams even rang their bells none of them responded bar one with his middle finger and hurling a pack of food at it. Wealthy people that think they can bribe others with money into doing things give me the S&#T's !

SD Card corrupts again as I copy files from it, Sandisk microSD cards are the biggest pieces of fragile junk I've ever used and what is worse is I was able to recover the video files and they still contain data but as far as anything is concerned, the files are "corrupted" and can't be viewed.

I Started using Amazon and it is going to cost me $7 in postage to get a tiny replacement card sent to me, yet I can go on Ebay and buy the same SD cards and get free postage. I don't really feel like paying that much for such a tiny item, if it was bigger then I could understand.

The internet is not good for the environment. Neither are mobile devices or computers.

I am confused as to what you stand for.

We sadly had to get a new modem now.

Could you pm me a link to where you got your statement from?
