Hi, Retro,

thank you.

We are not on speaking terms anymore, and the end was horrible. I am scared of more pain, that is why I am in a safety distance to him, he is simply too offensive.

I had offered to step down voluntarily, since I missed trust and independancy and he refused to let me go, only to degrade me 3 weeks later to a normal member again, without prior notice and without making an effort to speak to me, about why I am not there. I was ill, in addition to being upset.

I returned after 10 days, only to find I am not Admin anymore. I showed my good will and posted again, and in one post I protected a member that got harrassed by some others.

His 2 brown noses were involved.

As a result, I got an official warning of ban attached to an emial and the threat, he would take the name Admin out of my nick too, if whatever. . (My name was "Admin _____").

I asked him to please remove Admin then now.

Since then, I haven't been back, and was a bit disappointed, because I helped him to lauch his forum, and now that it is running,-- hm...perhaps I became too popular.

I don't know.

I did it all for him....for a good friend....I don't understand why he is so 'bad'.

Very sad...

But I found my comfort in the Dhamma.

Without those teachings, I would have been far more disappointed.

But so, I often thought of:

"What do you expect?"

"He beat me, he abused me, for the one who thinks like this, hate never stops."


Things like that.

And I also noticed, that my Ex Co Admin draws his members into an unhealthy clinging that I saw with great concern...

It could also be that some remarks I made of a Buddhist nature upset him.

It must be hard to understand for you guys. Sorry... :(

In short:

He is running a website for relationship counselling after break-ups.

He makes money with people who try their best to get their Ex back.

He teaches them a strategy, but actually this strategy...is everything but a way out of clinging.

There were moments where this bothered me as counterproductive to my path...it didn't feel right to teach people this method, without the non clinging...

And, I often found in the past, that things that got into my spiritual path, were removed from my path, seemingly without my interfering. I was always thankful, afterwards....thought: "good"....

I am now seeing it as this, as the falling away of something that was not benefitting my goal.

Greetings Anna,

It sounds as if you're best distanced from it all.

If anyone ever thinks that I'm losing the plot in a blood-thirsty lust for power, I strongly recommend they contact David and ask to have me removed of my admin rights... people don't deserve that kind of shabby treatment.

Metta,
Retro. :)
