I guess Dhammarakkhito's posts are being delayed by the moderators but I had originally posted directly after cappuccino's Sutta quote which would seem to say that.
There is no post approval in this forum, so no posts are "being delayed by the moderators".

Re: Why does a comedian go to hell or animal womb?

i hope the moderators will allow this to remain so that benefit can be reaped from it and out of faith i am not a hostile party Just as long as you understand that Circle5 was well within the bounds of the terms of service when he made the joke. The staff currently has no plans to use the suttas to...

Re: Why does a comedian go to hell or animal womb?

Bhikkhus! A comedian making non-PC jokes produces much outrage in the world. Through his non-PC jokes, he causes other people to get angry and upset. In this life, villagers might attack him with torches and forks, or in a best case they will boycott and shut down his speeches. After the break-up o...

Re: Why does a comedian go to hell or animal womb?

It is easy to imagine when you look at the vain, self-indulgent way some celebrities behave. Perhaps there is a baseline degree of vanity present in those who entertain that would qualify as the intoxication the Buddha is referring to. Think about it, you have to want to be revered by your audience ...

Re: What does the buddha mean by having mindfulness established"in front of him"

Prior to developing mindfulness the mind will wander away from the act of being mindful. We all know this. That act must be in regard to whatever arises, even the act itself. Think of any sutta about mindfulness, "While [doing such and such], he knows, "I am [doing such and such]"". That second part...

Re: add moderator to foes

You sent me a pm that you were contesting my decision, inquired about adding me as a foe, and a post back you told me I was unfit to be a moderator, so obviously you have something to say to me or at least about me. Not sure why no one can be told anything anymore. It's always someone else's fault. ...

Re: add moderator to foes

if i don't want a moderator to contact me, what can i do If you don't want me to contact you, keep doing whatever you please, ignore the ToS and earn yourself a suspension. That way your account will be disabled and you'll receive no messages from anyone. Otherwise, heed the warning and stay on top...

Re: Buddha abandoning his wife and child - was it wrong?

Having a wife and kids myself it bothered me a bit at first when I was beginning to look into Buddhism. I think the fact that the Buddha came back to teach his son and former wife the Dhamma, in which both realized arhantship, more than makes up for his leaving. Indeed. Ends the argument as far as ...
