New Global Moderator.... Cooran!

Postby retrofuturist » Mon Jun 20, 2011 9:00 am

Greetings,

I'm pleased to announced that Cooran has been appointed as a Global Moderator!

She brings to the team a wealth of skills and knowledge, both as a moderator with extensive experience at E-Sangha, and as a dedicated Theravada practitioner.

As a long standing member and friend of the forum, please make Cooran feel welcome in her new role!

Metta,
Retro. :)

Congratulations Cooran, you're a valuable addition to the management team!

And when the Administrator had set the Dhamma Wheel Announcement of the First Female Global Moderator in motion, the Discovering Theravada devas cried out:
"On the Internet Loka, the Administrator has set in motion the unexcelled Dhamma Wheel's First Female Global Moderator that cannot be stopped by the trolls or spambots, deva, Mara or God or anyone in the internet cosmos."

On hearing the Discovering Theravada devas' cry, the devas of the General Theravada took up the cry... the devas of the Classical Theravada... the Ordination devas... the Abhidhamma devas... the Meditation devas... the Dhamma-Free-For-All devas... the devas of the Lounge retinue took up the cry:

"On the Internet Loka, the Administrator has set in motion the unexcelled Dhamma Wheel's First Female Global Moderator that cannot be stopped by trolls or spambots, deva, Mara or God or anyone in the internet cosmos."


All the best Cooran :D
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Congratulations, Cooran - and thanks, in advance, for accepting what is often a rather thankless role.

Congratulations Chris!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

A fine, fine choice. I don't think DW could have a better addition to the mod team. Sadhu!

I'm sorry to break the party here but I think it's a bad move. Cooran was a moderator at e-sangha and I remember those days where I had to tip-toe around her in order not to get censured for everything I said. She was a very bad moderator. She is a good contributor here and not fit to be a moderator given her past. Having said this, I hope that the policy of freedom in this forum continues despite this.

Welcome, Cooran! I've never been on e-sangha, but I think it's a good choice. Hopefully it works out well.

Hello all,

Thank-you for your metta and well-wishing!

It is good to have this opportunity to serve the Dhamma. I am thankful for such Kalyanamitta , well-versed in the Dhamma - from whom I can learn, and hopefully, support as well.

With metta
Chris

More specifically, it's a policy of endeavouring to execute the Terms Of Service in a consistent fashion, and Cooran will be assisting with this.

If you feel that there's a member of staff not doing that, regardless of who it is, you may enact the following...

Seriously I remember what MP is talking about and hope that this forum being as it is a very different creature to E-Sangha continues its friendly helpful and liberal attitude to its members. And I trust it will. Welcome Cooran!
