Meta Is Murder

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

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. :)
