Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

One funny thing: When I click into a notification of a post by someone in my ignore/foe list, I get this:
Information
You are not authorised to read this forum.
It's as if I've been suspended/banned, although obviously that's not true. Bug?

Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

I understand. I mean I'd like to see how it works out in reality, when the offending party persists. If the badgered member sends a message of complaint to a mod or reports the badgering post, and if the mod judges the complaint to be justified, then the badgering member will be instructed to desis...

Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

It's article 2.j. I understand. I mean I'd like to see how it works out in reality, when the offending party persists. It doesn't work. I told a member to stop quoting me and he continued to do so, the mods are probably too busy to keep track of everything. I don't think it's a good idea to rely on...

Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

I'm wondering. If someone is highly foe-d, say maybe by at least 10 ppl, wud the moderator check out this person to see if keeping him/her as a member wud add or minus value to this site?

It's article 2.j.
Pressuring members to engage, despite them having already explicitly declined such engagement in the current topic .

Under rule 2j of TOS, you can ask people not to engage with you in threads. Obviously that also means not engaging with them.
Can you give me an example of that?

Re: "Gata" translated as "Immersed"

This Pali expression kāyagatā sati should not be construed as mindfulness directed to the physical body, because kāya here refers not to the physical body alone, but to “an individual that is able to perceive through his senses” as Kuan (2008 , pp. 99–103) demonstrated. The above sounds like "sakka...

Re: Mentally ill

The proper terminology could be applied here more accurately as mentally disturbed. People who suffer from a serious mental illness are usually lucid caring and thoughtful like ordinary people. Unless their having a manic or psychotic break. Ordinary people can also be confused and disturbed. It ca...

Re: "Gata" translated as "Immersed"

In http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/study/bodymind.html I see Aj Thanissaro translating Kayagata-sati as "Mindfulness Immersed in the Body" Seems like a stretch to me to translate "gata" as "immersed". What do you think? What alternatives do you propose Bhante? 'Frank'ly, I'm still looking into t...

Re: "Gata" translated as "Immersed"

I just realised that it's actually gatā here (not just gata ). So, looking it up, I found this: Concise Pali-English Dictionary by A.P. Buddhadatta Mahathera : kāyagata: [adj.] relating to the body. kāyagatā, sati : [f.] mindfulness centred on the body. "centred" may be a stretch too, but "relating"...

Re: Ajahn Ganha : A Nephew of Ajahn Chah ?

I wonder how they are able to eat vegetarian? I've heard that in Thailand, the lay devotees who prepare and give food to the monks are almost all omnivores and provide mostly non-vegetarian foods. I have that thought too, especially if they are doing Thudong, they can't pick and choose what they ea...

Re: Ajahn Ganha : A Nephew of Ajahn Chah ?

About whether Ajahn Ganha is a nephew of Ajahn Chah, I think I've a more complete understanding. If we hear a Thai saying so-and-so is a nephew of so-and-so, bear in mind he's translating from a Thai word: laanR . As you can see from searching this word on this page: หลาน - thai-language.com (http:/...
