Tell us how you think the forum can be improved. We will listen.
How come this is a ".com" website since it is not a commercial operation? .com stands for .commerce....net and .org are reserved for non-commercial sites. Or is this actually a commercial enterprise?
I have anticipated being labelled a troll, which you internet people love to do, hence the name.

It's a valid question. I'm sure David Snyder will be along presently to explain in more detail, but my recollection is that it had to do with availability of domain names when the site was set up.

From memory, the other popular domain name extensions were taken at the time.
Dharma Wheel (the Mahayana/Vajrayana one) is dharmawheel.net
If we had first dibs at all the domain names ever invented it would be easier... but in the absence of that, we have what we have. I think the complete absence of ads and paid memberships is sufficient to demonstrate that the site is not-for-profit.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)
