I have noticed that the conversation stream on NB is now pretty much dictated by a few contributors, like Kerome and lobster and Kerome and lobster, to name but 2... Just look at the comments, and by whom. And it's the same old same old.
I stopped contributing some time ago, because I felt the site was becoming dominated by a few voices, but regularly I look in but over the last few years it has become Trumpian, and as a result the content of NB has become, stilted, directed and boring. That is just my view. Sure they post good stuff, but it's just' stuff' mostly.
If you are interested in buddhism, where do you go for debate and conversation, and insight. I go to my spiritual home \o/
Perhaps the commentators I have commentated on should practice (c not s) in silence ...lol... for a while so some new and undirected conversations can start up by people who are really contemplating what buddhism means for them, and not others...
Just saying! /o\
