3. You've got to be fucking kidding me...
Oy, what's next? "BlackDeath.gov: Because you never know what bio-engineered superweapon is going to get loose from a government lab!"

When the avian flu starts killing people, I MIGHT possibly consider beginning to start being concerned... maybe.

7. Wow... I hadn't considered that...
Possibly VERY telling... That worries the hell out of me, now that I think about that. I haven't heard of any media whores deeming it specifically a PANDEMIC flu... If it isn't common parlance yet, they can't argue that they were just going with the established nomenclature.

As far as I know, the virus is still restricted to birds. The fact that they named the website as such is deeply concerning. I hope that I'm just too paranoid.

9. You and me both...Or is it just another Terrorist tactic of this
administration to get the masses in line via fear and terror. They can't fall back on the Terror Alerts, they had overplayed that card. The need a new Terror, a new boogerman to unleash on the public to make them toe the line.

Because as far as I know the virus has not mutated to the human to human phase. It may never mutate to that stage. then it could...but how are they so sure that it will, enough to set up a info site on it specifically?
