On a forum, a moderator is a kind of boss.
As long as the TOS aren't broken I can't see there being a problem. I've made it this far so they don't seem too strict or unreasonable. But then it is early days....

Should establish an internation Buddhist Moderator day with dedication of merit to the team.
'Bhikkhus, possessing three qualities, a bhikkhu is practicing the unmistaken way and has laid the groundwork for the destruction of the taints. What three? Here, a bhikkhu guards the doors of the sense faculties, observes moderation in eating, and is intent on wakefulness. He should develop perception of unattractiveness so as to abandon lust... good will so as to abandon ill will... mindfulness of in-&-out breathing so as to cut off distractive thinking... the perception of inconstancy so as to uproot the conceit, 'I am.

Perhaps it should be recited as Patimokkha even tho i don't think it is quite up to par and apparently contradictory in meaning.

I did not suggest it as a gesture of honouring the moderators per se.. not saying you aren't worthy of honours but it was more in connection to
Please accept my sincere commiserations.
The stuff you have to deal with is just incredible imho.

It is quite interesting that you expect to be honoured for having a green name. Some mods don't even seem to know the difference between an Arahant and a Sotapanna...
