Re: Poe's Law - Defense

The very fact that threads are taken down which critisize pay-for-play "Dhamma teachers" who charge exorbitant amounts of money to learn "Dhamma" is about as evident as it gets. YES, I know about that.... I don't know what threads you are referring to, but I'd be just as against such a thing as you...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

The fact remains, this is not a Buddhist forum. It is a bathroom wall filled with graffiti, lies and misinformation. There does seem to be some truth in that. I was engaging in some friendly exchanges about Pali compound nouns, some videos made by Sujato, and the inclusion of Sati within Samadhi, a...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

who is incapable of addressing any of the content, which amounts to either laziness or something else. I addressed it directly. All we're trying to do here is maintain a discussion space where all aspects of Theravada can be discussed. It is a combination of making sure individuals aren't attemptin...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Implosion? Sure, but you are just a troll. Really Buddhists can see this. You have dedicated your life to being a troll. So I thank you for your....compassion.... But the fruit of cause and effect will take its course, internet slanders aside. Just because you decided you understood what I am think...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Either way, if a few people who don't know anything about Theravada, who want to learn what it is gets this message, than the sheep dog has done his job. And I'm very happy you wrote this...it is refreshing when people are honest about their intentions. Let me know when you become capable of this f...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Should we base the theme off of what you have been posting about in "General Theravada Discussion" for the last 24 hours? I was posting about Islam in the past 24 hours, so your snub is, as all of your other content you post on here - worthless, like a fart in the wind. The fact that this is all yo...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Dhammawheel, of course, is not a Buddhist forum and it is not about the Dhamma. And has very, very little to do with Theravada. Should we base the theme off of what you have been posting about in "General Theravada Discussion" for the last 24 hours? I was posting about Islam in the past 24 hours, s...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Potemkin Villages are intended to fraudulently convince people that a simulacrum is reality. But no such claim about reality has been made here, as far as I can see. While that sounds superficially open-minded the fact remains at the top of the board here, what is written: Dhamma Wheel Buddhist for...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

I see a lot of ad-hominums here. Yet no mentioning of the suggestion within the O.P. Anyone want to take a stab at it, or is insulting Buddhists the equavalent of an argument here? Your suggestions within the OP seem to amount to banning or otherwise proscribing certain content here on DW. For exam...

Re: Buddha knew all along

If there is a scale of immorality, I would propose Truman/the Americans with their targeted bombings (nuclear and otherwise) of civilian centers to be on exactly the same lowest of the low denominator with Hitler and his concentration camps or Stalin and his Gulags. as the logical person you are, t...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Be careful what you wish for... Could you elaborate please? I'm asking because while many could assume this is a cowardly, passive-aggressive ad-hominum, I have faith that you are capable of adding more than that. Sure. I mean that if you were successful in instigating a policy to eradicate trolls ...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

I keep saying this forum should be open for posting only to people who have attained stream-entry or higher -- but noone takes my suggestion seriously ... There are hundreds of thousands of Buddhists monks in the world already. Your point being ...? Buddhist monks are capable teachers. They have bi...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

I think DhammaWheel should attempt to divert such inevitable trolls who bring harm to the forum, lest Buddhists come to the conclusion that the forum is, indeed, a living example of Poe's Law. Be careful what you wish for... Could you elaborate please? I'm asking because while many could assume thi...

Re: Poe's Law - Defense

Either way, a Theravadan believes in Paramatthas, which are ultimate realities, and therefore, when one experiences this, and are part of the Ariyan Sangha, there is not much room for wrong view. I keep saying this forum should be open for posting only to people who have attained stream-entry or hi...
