Seems like you're trying to deny that Buddhists are human, and only think about Dhamma, it seems a wide ranging open forum would attract new viewers more than a highly technical Dhamma only format, I think you''ve made a big mistake.

Greetings Lyndon,

That's nice. Maybe you should have thought about that before you set about incessantly and intolerantly trolling people who disagree with you for years on end, and helping in that respect to push our hand. Staff have decided we'd rather participate in a more focused Theravāda Buddhism forum than attend to your worldly quibbling, so expect it to be met with short thrift moving forward.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Well then go "make the new forum great again" for the first time. :tongue:

But seriously, all three forums are going to see a degree of integration with the crossover membership, so we are not likely to be as closed off as we once were. I think this change will make both the Mahayana and Theravada communities stronger and more united. Time will tell.

Actually I thought it was your worldly input that made the move necessary??

Your intolerance and poor reactions towards it and anyone else who disagreed with you, yes.

Now... the past is done, but if you have any constructive suggestions for the future, please use the Suggestion Box here or at DWE, as the case may be.

As of now, what was once "forthcoming" is now "here", so this announcement topic will be closed.

Metta,
Paul. :)
