I’m an avid reader of NAR, but since 2 years I have something that bug me : a lot of stories that have been posted mention the Covid-19 crisis, but everyone have been edited (or submitted directly) mentionning “the current health crisis” for example.
Some stories have a lot of circumvolutions to avoid telling this, and it’s making the story more difficult to read.
Why ? I get that “a certain US president during the 2020 health crisis” have employed discriminatory terms for naming the covid-19 disease, but it’ll probably not be the only lockdown or pandemic we are gonna experience, and in some years, when going back on old stories, maybe it will be confusing.
So why censoring covid crisis ?
