Spell Check

Postby bodom » Tue Apr 13, 2010 10:47 pm

Would it be possible for mods to correct misspelling's in thread titles ie. mahyana better than therveda. If one wanted to perform a search looking for a certain topic the misspelling might make it more difficult to find. Mods could contact OP so as not too hurt feelings. Regardless if we all know what is meant I think it would help to make searches easier. Just a thought, feel free to shoot it down.

This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty. Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

Greetings Bodom,

Yeah, we can fix the titles if they're spelled incorrectly. We sometimes do this now, but it's been on a bit of an ad-hoc basis.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Thank you Retro.

And Alaya7 if your reading this I did not mean to intentionally single out your thread. It just happened to be the most recent example. No hard feelings. :toast:
