I'm thinking of reining in on rants and O/T posts. I think new year, new leaf.
Newbuddhist needs a bit of an wake-up call and update.
It's getting to be less and less about Buddhism, and more and more a personal space people can discuss whatever they want, under the occasional guise of "...in a buddhist way..."
It's also getting to be a bit like an 'old boys club', by which I mean same posters, same discussions... We haven't had much in the way of new blood, in spite of me accepting quite a number of new applicants. I'd love to be able to change that.
It's possible the general discussion atmosphere is not what they're looking for, which is a shame.
I remember when I joined, discussions were far more focused, generally...Now, IMHO, it's getting to be less and less like a Buddhist forum with other topic matters, and more and more like a general discussion group with a nod to Buddhism.
Just thought I'd put that out for general Information...
