Greetings Coëmgenu,

As a rule, we do not delete entire topics unless:

- The OP requesting the removal is the only contributor to the topic (because to do otherwise is unfair to everyone else who has invested their time in the topic)
- The topic is a Personal Experience topic, which the OP no longer feels comfortable sharing

Topics can however be closed at an OP's request, and we are happy to oblige.

Metta,
Paul. :)

From para. 5 of tos:
Posts cannot be edited or deleted after one hour from posting as it disrupts the conversation, especially when whole posts are deleted throughout several conversations. Posters have no ownership of any information they post here and do so at their own choice. Each poster is responsible for carefully crafting their posts due to this and again, this is a voluntary forum at no membership fee.
Also para. 3 does not allow deletion of posts.

It disrupts conversations and results in other members' posts getting deleted. Therefore, it is advised that every member take care in crafting any and all posts.

In any event, once a topic is locked or no longer has responses, the topic slides down the list to subsequent pages on the active topics list.

Sorry, I must have forgotten to include the content in my previous post. Likely a formatting error.

Here's that comment. You have a racist forum.

Alfa's post calling out this racist post here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=33464#p499102

Was deleted by retrofuturist. All for standing up to racism.

And this racist post is still there.

Clearly the content in my thread on Christian Wisdom has no place on a this forum, as it is unconnected to the path of śrāvaka cultivation, it seems.

With metta!

Greetings Coëmgenu,

As you know, there is a Dhamma Wheel Complaints Procedure.

As you also know, there is Terms of Service element ToS 3l prohibiting "Blatant and wilful disregard of the Dhamma Wheel complaints procedure"

As such, please calm down and comport yourself in a civilized manner, in alignment with the forum's Terms of Service.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Personally, I find the above post 'amazing' (in its apparent promotion of wanton violence :shock: ) & of the highest relevance but unfortunately few in the world are prepared to discuss the topic. Of course, I disagree 100% with the post but what the post is about is what is actually happening in the world. There are people in certain regions of the world getting slaughtered; just like in the video. While no longer a topic for DW forum, to want to delete this post is ignoring reality. I have already replied to a similar post on this forum. There is a lot more going on than mere "racism". The post is real.
I undertake the training-precept to abstain from onslaught on breathing beings.

There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.

We agree, but in different ways. But regardless of the ways we differ, we both agree that that post is indicative of what is going on in the world.

I appreciate your concern, but I really haven't valued the privilege of posting here since 2017.
