Rumil, I'm sorry you misinterpreted my post. I had said:

What I was looking for here was a discussion of historical problems with
sanitation and disease, such as London went through until they cleaned
up the Thames. Or how dysentery spreads in a sieged city. Hopefully,
the discussion could then be tweaked into problems we face at large SCA
events, like Pennsic and other wars.
I agree with your point that much of the previous thread was not
relevant to this mailing list. But please don't leave yourself out of a
(hopefully) relevant discussion when you might have something useful to
