Hello my name is Slothrop...

Post by Slothrop » Wed Mar 25, 2009 1:14 pm

...and I am very happy to introduce myself. I guess that my presence could be seen as unwelcome competition among Buddhist forum owners, but I did want to let the users here know that I have been working hard on my website that has no profit motive and only seeks to help people heal wounds with Buddhist tools. So please come and visit BYOBuddha.org and participate. Thank you.

Hi Slothrop,
welcome, I doubt the owners would see you as unwelcome, their are many forum and sight owners here on DW
Anyway hi
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill

Welcome, Slothrop. :smile:

Nice website, best of luck with it. I like the emphasis on healing. "Healing the hostility that ails us" indeed!

Slothrop, providing you are as frequent a visitor here, as you hope others will be on your website, I don't see an issue.
If your only intention is to advertise your site, then never appear here again, however....

....that may be an entirely different issue altogether.

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D
