Greetings,

A few comments....

1. The subtext for this forum states that partipants must "Be nice". If we had picked up stuka's comment in question prior to it being quoted multiple times, it would have been removed because it wasn't really "being nice". I have now clarified our standards for Stuka so that he is aware in future of what is permissable and not permissable.

2. Thus, please continue to use the "Report Post" button should you see objectionable posts that do not match the subject matter or scope of any given forum. We will attend to them as quickly as practicable, given our available staff.

3. Another reason to use the "Report Post" button is to stop the thread going off-topic with complaints. Public complaints, regardless of how legitimate, take threads off-topic and have a tendency to become a sideshow unto themselves.


Now, let's return to the topic at hand...

Thanks.

Metta,
Retro. :)

What has convinced me of rebirth is this debate itself. It never dies for good, nor does it pass into parinibbanna. It must have strong attachments to dukkha.:lol:

Greetings,

The Noble Eightfold Path remains the same, regardless.
