You should be aware that there are some people here, including myself, who were not fond of the repressive nature of E-Sangha, and who therefore, distrust you.
However, I do truly hope that the way you conduct yourself here as a moderator will show us that you are a fair and honest person we can have confidence in.
Specifically, I would not want to see these typical E-Sangha occurences:
-perfectly reasonable, unoffensive posts frequently being deleted into oblivion at the whim of the moderators
-moderators bullying members who disagree with their viewpoints
-forbidding all discussion about the general function and policies of the forum itself
But my hope is that you will be a great moderator like all our other ones.
Your feedback is very valuable and appreciated. And I have no doubt that Henry is appreciative of your honesty and expression of your experiences at e-sangha.
Please do be aware that DharmaWheel.net is under new management, and we intend on running the site exactly as it has been so far.
You've been a most valuable member, and I mean that. Your comments, remarks, and contributions have been a backbone of Dharma Wheel, especially when we were first getting off the ground.
But please be assured, nothing will change here. We are free to discuss just about anything under the sun (except the Karmapa controversy), as it should be.
Kind wishes and thanks,
