Both sides have had their say. Maybe it is time to turn off the ability to post new posts in this thread?
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

The thread is about suggestions to improve Dhammawheel, not this specific case.

Edit: I just read the original post again. I think I am wrong. Sorry.

Actually, you are quite correct: The thread is about suggestions to improve Dhammawheel.

IMO Dhamma Wheel is healthy and functioning well. The moderators are doing an outstanding job with an appropriately light touch. That said, I don't spend much time reading threads or posts which I consider to be trivial and/or frivolous.

All the best,

Mawish, the topic is about "Help us improve your DW experience".

And I am talking about what would improve MY DW experience.

I can't stand it when people target others.

Next time, it could be me, and I would be thankful when I am not being left alone.

Greetings,

If some of the posts in this topic are anything to go by, it seems like a bit of good humour has helped improve some people's Dhamma Wheel experience.

:D
