Nice to see that the old eSangha forum attitudes are alive and well in The Dharma Wheel Forum. After challenging the disgusting behavior of some of the members and a manifest intolerant attitude to others beliefs, two things happened. First of all they deleted my post, then after complaining to a Moderator (some Greek sounding bloke) they have banned me. Deja Vu...
If they're incapable of participating in a mature debate then why have a forum?
What the moderators are, are a disgrace to the faith that they purport to represent. I only go in to have a look around.
I am apparently allowed back into the forum on Tuesday when I will swiftly be cancelling my membership.
Now I know why I shy away from all that Tibetan stuff....
What I know is that both forums adhere to their respective terms of service. As for the one here... you might wish to refamiliarise yourself with it, as technically you're in breach of it.
2. Do not be disruptive
Dhamma Wheel is an environment for the discussion of the Theravada. All are welcome but are required to abide by the TOS. Special forums have been created for special areas of interest so please respect these boundaries. Dhamma Wheel administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit inappropriate content, and to remove or transfer any posts or threads that are not relevant to the sub-forum in which they are posted. Any subject matter that may be off-topic or is intended only to cause disruption or harm to others may be removed without notice. This includes the badmouthing of other Buddhist discussion forums, trolling, meta-discussion (i.e. discussion about discussion), unsubstantiated allegations against members, solicitation of funds and proselytizing.
