Ben - Global Moderator

Postby retrofuturist » Thu Jan 01, 2009 5:03 am

Greetings everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Ben has decided to act as a global moderator here with us at Dhamma Wheel.

As he mentioned in his personal introduction, he is an experienced Theravadin Buddhist of over two decades and having worked alongside him before, I can say he is an excellent moderator and will be a great asset to this community.

Please join me in welcoming Ben to this position.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D
