And many are pointing as to why there are more issues with immune systems and allergies. So keep hand sanitizer, antibiotics for every cold, and crap away from me. My brain can rationalize how over cleaning is screwing us all up.

Joking but not joking... just wash hands in regular non antibacterial soap and you might live

"Antibacterial" is at best a crock.
Fact: Bacteria are the dominant life form on Earth and inhabit every surface and ocean and soil down to a considerable depth, not to mention our own bodies, which contain more bacterial cells than our own cells. (Yes, it's true!)

The only thing "antibacterial" products will do is kill some and teach the rest to adapt to its ingredients.

Iím happy for nature to take itís course. Sick guests thin the crowds for me!

Of course, for a genuinely immuno-suppressed person, I have deepest sympathy and wish them a safe and healthy Disney experience.

Iím in the ďa few little germs never hurt (most) anybodyĒ camp. We should get sick every now and then to build up our resistance to more serious stuff.

EXACTLY!! 2 weeks ago we were on the Carousel of Progress and during the second scene someone decided they were done watching and walked out. They get on the loud speaker and yell at everyone not to walk out during the show, then you have to sit through the whole 2nd scene again from the beginning.

If this was not enough, it happens again during the 3rd scene also!!!! Funniest part was someone else in the theater started yelling at the person leaving calling them a "mindless buffoon"

(Good thing I enjoy the COP)

This. We're compromising our own immune systems and then looking for others to blame. Well, not me as I know better than to use this crap in all but a few rare situations. But the population as a whole.

It's not the germs that are doing anything different, it's us. The germs are smarter than we are. Some of us, anyway.

Cheers.
