How do I set up a poll please?
Thanks Stephen, it was actually going to be about rebirth, but not its truth or falsity, but the dictator, she says no:)
It is not a name it is a description, as she will admit, she decides what gets closed and what stays open.
Go and fread the last 4 threads this person has closed.
I am sure she is lovely. She is, however, abusing her permission to protect her views.
It is morally and dharmically wrong.
Please think about what you just said within the context of this neutral internet disucssion forum.
It is morally and dharmically wrong.
You would see her differently had you been subject to the hostile, confrontational, belligerent bulling she has subjected me to, please I implore you, look at our exhanges on the closed threads and see what I speak of.
She acts like a teenage boy with her finger on the button.
I cannot believe its allowed to go on.
If you insist on your rights and keep saying they're wrong, etc., it will end badly for you. Stop and think about that, because I'm trying to help you with this just as I was trying to help you before. You are not being mindful, you are being stubborn. I don't intend to be mean, but you're acting a little crazy.
I was the head administrator (with about a dozen other admins and a coder) and part-time coder for an online game for 7 years. This is a Buddhist forum, and so it's more lenient, but there is still a point where you must acknowledge that you are not the machine; it is not you, not subject to your whims or views. People can complain about the police all they want, but their job is necessary. So are the moderators and what they do.
They are Brian and Lincoln.
They are privy to all and any threads here, whether they have been deleted or closed.
If you wish to approach them, please feel free to do so.
I would welcome it.
I really don't mind.
But On-forum criticism of Moderators and their decisions, is unacceptable.
there are correct channels to follow and this is not the way to go.
I suggest you do as I have advised.
Then you will see that for the main I have been respectful, polite and peacful.
Or show me where I haven't.
Fine, then let me have it from the site's owner that they don't wan't the idea that buddha saw and taught rebirth was Wrong View discussed on this forum.
I will respect it just as I did on the now closed e-sanga forum.
I agree. However that is now what was happeing in these closed threads,especially recently. I have had threatening PM fro her and pms of support from others.
I am not in the wrong here.
I completely disagree. You are simply wrong there. really, ask your self who it is who refused to entertain even the possiblity...
I have thought many times of jacking it in with this forum. It has caused me so much drain and strain.
Often I come away from the computer thinking "Am i mad here? Why are they thinking like this?"
I have talked it through with my wife on a number of times, she supports my resolve not to give up just because of what is a constant stream of directed negativity from the majority of vocal people here.
I now feel more than ever that nobody else is pushing this enquiry online and I think it needs to be investigated more.
I am very very far from crazy.
I came here because this forum claims to be non secular and for making dharma more accessible. If you wish me to stop talking about my theories, as said, persuade the owner to tell us all so in public.
please understand that it is you who have caused yourself so much drain and strain.
Nobody can make you feel angry, peaceful, sad etc... only you can.
only you ever did, even if you never realized.
you will understand this if you practice Buddhist meditation, eventually you will come to this realization.
You wouldn't listen to reason on the subjects/threads that were closed. For that, you had your hand slapped. Now, you're trying to bite that hand. If we're unable to learn, we don't understand how we're wrong and we pass the buck. This is an indication of a bigger problem and I admit I've failed in helping.
Sorry. I'm out...
Please dont misquote me:
OK. Start your own forum and tell the world. Blogger takes about 30 seconds to sign up for. Knock yourself out.
And you would see her differently if you'd had the pleasure of working with her for the last six years.
That was the sound of the line being crossed. You're a hot post away from being banned.
We're done here.
