Tiltbillings - Global Moderator

Postby Paul Davy » Wed Jan 21, 2009 5:32 am

Greetings everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that tiltbillings has accepted an offer to come on board with Dhamma Wheel as a global moderator.

He has moderating experience at other sites, has been a valuable long-term member at E-Sangha, and he brings with him to the role a wealth of knowledge and experience about Buddhism.

Please join me in congratulating tilt on his appointment.

Metta,
Retro. :)

But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

Congratulations tilt!

I promise to try to be moderate so as not to need moderating. :)

This is exciting and will benefit all of us. Tilt is a walking dhamma encylopedia! And he's fair to people and open-minded. Good pick, Dhammawheel staff.

Best wishes Tilt,
Drolma

This is awesome news. Tilt's Sutta-based wisdom is precious and wonderful.
