It’s just as logical as implying that 94% of the deaths have nothing to do

With covid.

In reality, all #’s have nuances..... but either side of an issue picks their favorite number for arguing purposes. In the real world, a great many deaths have occurred that at-a-minimum would have been delayed. Bear Hodges was older and may have had 1 or more of the other items listed on the comid list..... but he had more life in him than many of the young folks posting on this board. He likely had far fewer years left than many, but it’s intellectually dishonest to imply that his death doesn’t count because of X, Y, Z. Similarly, being a relatively small amount overweight technically gets you on the list.

Many have passed with that box checked that likely would have anyway..... but implying that % to be 94 is downright foolish IMO. Just as foolish as saying that every death with it is the same as dying of it......
