Can someone help me find an article about HIV/AIDS that was linked on the blue? It was written by an at-the-time healthy person during the AIDS crisis, posted publicly (possibly a newspaper column or a transcription of a radio dispatch), with a clear sense of urgency and a call to action, primarily directed at other gays. It mentions being at a hospital and taking care of sick folks. It tries to dispel rumors about HIV/AIDS transmission and criticizes the government (maybe the CDC specifically) for inaction. The webpage itself mostly black text and a white background, no flashy user interface. That's all I can remember. I've tried searching myself for many hours with no luck. Thank you.

User A asserts that all people with HIV should be rounded up and quarantined for life. User B points out that User A has a history of really ugly, hate-filled opinions that are not suitable for MetaFilter. Mod snips the latter comment, leaves the former, and reminds all and sundry that MeTa is the place to discuss community standards and personal issues. So here we are. [more inside]
This is not supposed to be a theology debate. Although I don't mind walking the line because I am interested in people's reactions and interpretations of a natural phenomenon. But I don't want my first FPP yanked because people couldn't at least flame on topic and the topic is HIV, how it works and what it looks like.
