Terms of Service, major new edition

Post by Ben » Wed May 11, 2016 2:22 am

Dear all,
We've just published a major new edition to our Terms of Service.
i know for most people it's not the most exciting subject in the world but it does govern behaviour here at DW and it is immediately effective. Please take a couple of minutes to give the TOS a read.

Terms of Service

At this point I would like to publically acknowledge all DW staff for their assistance in updating the TOS, but in particular SDC who has been central in driving this project.
Kind regards,
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Excellent work, everyone. :twothumbsup:
DW has always been incredibly civilised, for an online forum, and these new rules will help keep it that way.

Thanks to those who were involved - it looks well-structured and conducive to the civilized sharing of different perspectives.

Wow, I really like the new TOS. Very succinct, clear, and effective. Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu!
The non-doing of any evil,
The performance of what's skillful,
The cleansing of one's own mind:
This is the Buddhas' teaching.
