eSangha all over again...

Postby Beautiful Breath » Sun Mar 24, 2013 11:30 am

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....

Greetings BB,

Send a pm with your experiences and concerns to David N. Snyder, owner of both Dhamma Wheel and Dharma Wheel.
You can be sure that he will investigate your complaint seriously and objectively.
kind regards,

Ben

I think David Snyder owns both fora. Rather than simply blowing off some steam, you may want to write to him and explain exactly what happened.

If you were treated unfairly, it is a good idea to appeal. Or if not, to get a better explanation why this action was taken.

it's the internet.
Just keep breathing in and out like this. Don't be interested in anything else. It doesn't matter even if someone is standing on their head with their ass in the air. Don't pay it any attention. Just stay with the in-breath and the out-breath. Concentrate your awareness on the breath. Just keep doing it. http://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Just_Do_It_1_2.php

Just reread the TOS. From what I can see, mostly members follow them. But yes doesn't hurt to review them carefully and ensure that we understand all the possible implications.

In peace and metta

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
