Deletion of messages and bans on ground of

Postby gloriasteinem » Tue Jan 21, 2014 1:32 am

or in case of unexeptable nonaccording and highly offensive to religious Buddhism behavior. You know what I am talking about, stances that anger is ok, that some people were even addicted to it, that offending boddhisatva is ok and even funny, these are misguiding our online users and Buddhists in the wrong direction or even path, these are also promoting wrongdoings that should not be alowed in any Buddhist community that needs immunity against such.

I would also like to add deletion of images as avatars that encompas dark and darkness, these are simptomatic for people that are not on the right track, any meant as frighting or otherwise harming emotionally the online users. you have political correctness rules but you dont have religious rules and any religion has its rules of what is not allowed to believers and practitioners, these are the type of misconduct and mischief that are described ane you know them.

I wrote the above because I've seen such users amd writtings here, these give wrong direction how things are and shoukd be removed. Honestly, I dont wanna enter religious site to learn bad practices and be learnd of 'that such things are ok' but they are not and we should draw a line of what is not acceptable and even what is highly unacceptable so that such behaviour to be stopped, if this is a religious site in its core.

At least you know how to equip the mask and make sure you have a proper seal when the alarm sounds.

The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

If posts violate the terms of service, there is a triangle in the upper right hand corner you can use to report the post to administrators. If the post is merely misguided or is perceived as potentially disrespectful, then it might be useful to respond with compassion and equanimity. The poster's state of mind contributes to their own karma. Their post is an opportunity to help them see a more positive path since they will likely read the responses. If there is no way to help them improve their actions, then it's simply the way things are and there's no reason to get involved.

There's always the ignore function...
Believe it or not, there's no divine punishment for not reading 'undesirable' posts or users...

:good: Exactly!!! And, of course, plwk's proposal. And, in closing, try practicing Khanti/Kṣānti (kshanti): patience, tolerance, forbearance, acceptance, endurance (忍辱波羅蜜, bzod-pa) it's one of the paramita.
