I'm starting to like your idea, samseva. Good luck with it and hopefully I'll find something in it to give input to.

With metta,

It would take much work, but I think it would benefit a lot of people. If it is stickied (rather than seeing a lot of work being buried under hundreds of new threads), I am willing to do this. That is, if it is okay with the moderators.
That sounds like a great idea, but perhaps the title could be a little less argumentative.
Would something like "Common misconceptions about Dhamma practice" be better?

To anyone interested, I have completed the draft version of the 'Common Misconceptions About Dhamma' thread. It was posted in its current format as to prompt discussion before posting the final version.

Creating the 'Common Misconceptions About Dhamma' Thread

Feel free to drop by and offer suggestions/input of any kind.

He'd get them out working with others in the kitchen, etc.
Mike, if it is okay with you, we could nominate this as the first topic/misconception.

Fine with me, it's not an idea original to me!
