Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

Thank you for looking into this question. I also think it might be a good idea for you to call Bhikkhu Thanissaro to find out what his take on the circumstances are surrounding the release of this letter apparently ahead of publication, and whether he thinks this excerpt fairly represents his positi...

Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

Thank you for the informative responses. Does anybody know where to find B. Thanissaro's full response? The moderators keep saying Inquiring Mind, but that only answers where B. Bodhi's article came from. Is anybody in contact with Bhikkhu Thanissaro to confirm this is in fact his or where the rest ...

Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

It appears that my comments to the B. Bodhi / B. Thanissaro thread are being held back for approval by a moderator. Is this policy against my posts in particular, or does this apply to everybody posting to the thread? Was there a notice posted of this policy somewhere? Will my comments be silently d...

Re: Inquiring Mind / Bhikkhu Thanissaro's article

I appreciate your taking down the inappropriate posts at the beginning of the thread. I apologize for not using the exclamation mark to report them. As I said before, I am new to this, so I appreciate your patience as I learn the ropes. I understand that neither B. Bodhi's article nor B. Thanissaro'...

Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

I am new to the forums, so this is all a bit eye-opening for me (not necessarily in a good way). I have not explored the site thoroughly, but it seems some monks, like Bhikkhu Bodhi have a fairly active relationship with the site, and others like Bhikkhu Thanissaro might not. Could you briefly expla...

Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

I would like to repost my previous question of where the full response from Thanissaro Bhikkhu can be found? It's not on inquiring mind (neither is Bhikkhu Bodhi's for that matter). I think it would be useful to have the whole thing if we are to discuss this intelligently.

Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

"It was not me, though I found that the thread had become repetative and negative (particularly in regards to Ven Bodhi), covering no new ground. It was a group decision." Shouldn't Bhikkhu Bodhi's position, especially when he openly acknowledges there is no direct support for it in the Canon, be he...

Re: An active moderator shouldn't enter debate

The same arguments were being repeated and the decision was made by another moderator/admin to remove that thread from view due to the circular arguments and since it included disparaging remarks to the ordained members of the Sangha. It was not done by me. The moderator/admin who made this decision...

Bhikkhu Bodhi article in Inquiring Mind

I also agree with Spiny Norman. My first posts were engaged by a moderator obviously partial to Bhikkhu Bodhi, and I believe I'm now locked out of the thread without any notice of what I've done wrong or a chance to correct myself. There seems to be some real agenda going here, and I've just arrived...
