The Problem with Pali eh? Seems like people can have a problem with everything. ;)
Maybe one would benefit from a more balanced view like "The advantages and disadvantages of pali". It has its pros and cons, just like most things. There is little use in degrading everything about pali and dismissing its value completely. It's not an approach das leads to peace of mind, is it?
