I don't know how you suppose this forum will be great by posting a whole load of samphappalāpa. A lot of great big egos doesn't make a great Buddhist forum. What I would like to see is some thoughtful posts and useful quotations or links.

Some amount of samphappalāpa (small talk) is to be expected in a sub-forum on Introductions; also in the Lounge, where we have threads, such as: Word Association Game, music game, etc.

But the points of both sides are well taken and this thread has run its course and so I am closing it.
