Time for Some Basic House Rules?
In an ideal World a 'Buddhist' Sangha should be able to 'Self Moderate'.
In theory - should everyone adhere to the basic principles and beliefs of 'Buddhism - everything should run smoothly. I have noticed particularly over the last few weeks that this theory when put to the test comes up short.
I personally believe that it is time to introduce some basic 'House Rules' which explain in simple terms, what is and is not appropriate or acceptable content on a 'Buddhist Forum'. However, instead of a set of 'Rules' arrived at and enforced by the Admin, I would put forward the suggestion that it is the members themselves that recommend what rules should be adopted. This would ensure that the 'Spirit' of Self Moderation was upheld, at the same time providing a Reference point from which decisions could be based.
Ultimately it is up to Brian as the Founder to decide if the time has arrived to warrant such intervention. I would ask for you guys to post your thoughts following my suggestion and what (if any) Rules or guidelines you would like to see in place. I am interested to know what views exist on this subject....feel free to shoot me down in Flames (Parachute Packed)!!
