Meta Is Murder

Read this. Immediately thought of here. And that other forum. Read it and be better chat-forum moderators as a result. :coffee:

Be heedful and you will accomplish your goal.

Greeting Peter,

Thanks for the link... of benefit to all of us, given that members too are expected to self-moderate.

Meta-discussion isn't necessarily always bad in and of itself (in fact, that article was a productive form of meta-discussion, if you think about it) but it certainly can be a distraction from Dhamma discussion, and can become tiresome after a while.

If members think any particular discussion is becoming too "meta" (and thus, off-topic), feel free to make a report to the moderators and we'll investigate... possibly either splitting the meta-discussion off elsewhere, removing it completely, or simply by doing our best to get the discussion...

:focus:

Let us never forget to treat other members with respect - this is a vital aspect of online communications, particularly when the only media available to us are words and emoticons.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
