"How amazing, sir. How astounding, that there is neither extolling of one's own Dhamma nor deprecation of another's, but just the teaching of the Dhamma in its proper sphere, speaking to the point without mentioning oneself."
Spoken in praise of the Elder Ananda, is the above so impracticable these days on Buddhist fora almost rivaling the perceived difficult quest for liberation itself?
Perhaps I'm wrong but though there is some minor criticisms online, I think conversations overall have improved greatly. If anything I think the majority of issues are doctrinal issues within vehicles, and it's quite harmless and sincerely well intentioned. I think the majority of people use discussion to learn as opposed to proselytizing.
