New Global Moderator - bodom

Postby retrofuturist » Thu Sep 16, 2010 11:17 pm

Greetings,

Please join me in welcoming bodom into the role of global moderator.

Bodom has impressed the Dhamma Wheel mod/admin team with his calm and intelligent postings, and I'm sure he's left a similar impression upon other members too. We are confident that he can bring those attributes into the global moderator role and help keep Dhamma Wheel as the #1 place on the Internet to discuss Theravada Buddhism.

Thanks Bodom.

:twothumbsup:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Great choice. Good luck bodom. :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Congratulations Bodom!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Thanks everyone!

Dhamma Wheel has been such a wonderful and important resource for me and my practice of Theravadan Buddhism. I owe a great deal of debt to David, Retro and Ben for Making Dhamma Wheel what is. Without it, isolated and cut off from other practioners the way I was when I first came across DW, I would definitely not be where I am with my practice today.

My only hope is to continue in the lineage of excellent moderators that Dhamma Wheel has seen both past and at present, and to help keep Dhamma Wheel the invaluable resource that it is for myself and many others.

That's right... because at heart, bodom is still a bad boy.

All nonsense aside, thank you Bodom for taking on the moderating role.
It's one of those important but usually thankless and unexciting jobs that makes the world a better place for all of us.
