    I did have Bobby Dazzler on ignore but it was by accident. I can’t comment on the other bit Willy. I prefer to just keep out of nastiness unless someone is directly and meaningfully being a ****.

    You're absolutely right! Lockdowns today are different from what they used to be in the past. The concept of lockdowns has evolved over time, and it can vary significantly from one situation to another. Here are some key points to consider about how lockdowns have changed:

    1. Technological Advancements: With the advent of technology, lockdowns have become more sophisticated. Instead of just physical restrictions, they may include digital measures such as remote work, online learning, and virtual gatherings. Technology has allowed people to stay connected even during lockdowns.

    2. Targeted Approach: Lockdowns today tend to be more targeted and data-driven. Authorities may implement restrictions in specific areas or for certain demographics based on the severity of the situation. This precision helps minimize the impact on unaffected regions.

    3. Public Awareness: People today are more informed about the reasons behind lockdowns and the importance of following guidelines. There is often better communication from authorities, and individuals are encouraged to take responsible actions to protect themselves and others.

    4. Economic Considerations: Lockdowns in the past were often characterized by complete shutdowns of businesses and services. Nowadays, there is a greater emphasis on balancing public health measures with economic stability. Many places implement partial lockdowns or allow essential services to continue.

    5. Adaptation: Society has learned to adapt to lockdowns. People have found creative ways to stay productive, entertained, and connected while staying at home. Businesses have also adapted by offering online services and delivery options.

    6. Vaccination: The availability of vaccines has significantly changed the approach to lockdowns. Vaccination campaigns aim to reduce the severity of COVID-19 cases and minimize the need for strict lockdown measures. As vaccination rates increase, lockdowns may become less frequent.
    It's important to note that the specific nature of lockdowns can still vary widely depending on the region and the prevailing circumstances. While they may not be what they used to be, lockdowns remain a tool to manage public health crises and protect communities from the spread of diseases like COVID-19.
