Yes Bankei I know about it.

There is a message about this here http://sujato.wordpress.com/

It seems Bhikkhu Bodhi has become concerned about the secrecy aspects and said it would have been preferrable if Bhikkhu Brahm had waiting for the WAM in December before proceding.

There is now a website with various letters expressing the Wat Pah Pong point of view. Some of them rather interesting:

Hello David, Vardali,

It doesn't make much sense ... what point is it making and in what way is it allegedly supporting the ordination of bhikkhunis?

And who wrote the Blog? ... some anonymous lay person, or if not, which bhikkhu?

As an outsider to all this, I just see the ordination as greatly skilful means.

I do know bureaucracy, and how it tends to delay year on year, decade on decade, and at the end, change nothing. So perhaps all that has happened is justice has been served quickly. Whenever this happens, some will complain about procedure, but hey - heaven knows how much unjust delay has been avoided.
