Deleted posts

It comes that post are deleted which might be somehow a lose. I don't like to raise the discussion of wether it is good or bad if it comes that way, as every action comes back to the one who is doing so.

But to learn, refelct or even get the understanding of wholesome and unwholesome actions, it might be maybe good to do not delete them in a way, so that it is no more easy to reflect on what was going on.

I had seen, that some forum operator installed a kind of trash-topic for such posts.

Maybe it would be also good to clasify them in comparation with the forum rules which might be broken. That does not only give some support for the writer, but needs also more care and attention for the one who delets a post.
Over all, a post would be still readable and maybe from use for somebody.

The suggsetion does not claim that there is less care or less well-meant intention, but should be a additional possibility to train mindfulness and a source of reflection (for both, the poster and the moderator). Still the bord can be moderated (disarmed/defused) well as ever without putting the mines just away.

How ever, discussions of "it was right" or "it was wrong" should not be forced by it, as deeds are how ever already done.

The result would be that we are aware of trash and trash does not simply dissapear but give possibilities to refect of how kamma goes on.

Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

That is something which is for sure wellcome all the time but does not touch the suggestion, as well as it is not always the time and possibility to do such things. And it's not so much a matter of mine and this touches a main reason of the suggestion. -> unpersonally and "objective"

To recitate a sentence:

'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go'
Just that! *smile*
