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...


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.

Retro. :)
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
