... The choice is yours. You can either continue to debate, as is your right, which will allow you to expose what you consider to be deceitful practices and faults; or you can refrain from debating and allow those you consider to be in error to continue.
If you think carefully, you might sometimes realize that neither of those suggestions would be beneficial to anybody in this case. Both suggestions are bad and poor.
Many of us here disagree with some of the views expressed by some members of this Forum. However, this Forum is a discussion forum, with the aim of allowing discussion of a wide range of views on Dhamma, as David (DNS) has indicated.
Members here have a wide range of views on Dhamma. Some take the Ancient Commentaries to be authoritative. Others think that the Ancient Commentaries are misleading. Some are followers of particular modern teachers such as Venerables Mahasi, Maha Bua, Chah, Thanissaro, Buddhadasa, Nanavira, Nanananda, and so on. Some think that some (or all) of those teachers are misguided.
Though moderators may well have their own personal opinions about the above issues, this Forum is not designed to impose those opinions, but to give members an opportunity to discuss them in a civil manner. It is our hope such discussion will assists members in their understanding of Dhamma.
I hope that you will continue to contribute to the discussion.
