It doesn't need to be, thanks PLWK. It must have been an oversight.

Best,
Laura

While this website is not e-Sangha, I do hope the topic of Dogyal will be off limits. It would also be great if the NKT was not allowed to use their propaganda on here. It seems this site is starting to take off, and it would be sad to see this group taken over by those who go out of their way to bash HH the Dalai Lama. Henry you did a great job keeing the NKT out of e-Sangha. I hope you will be able to keep them from posting here as well.

Take care,
David

Have a look at the Terms Of Service and you'll see what's been done in this space.

Any suggestions on how that policy might be improved can be taken to the Suggestion Box.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi all, here are the ToS at Dharma Wheel. Please take time to review them and ask questions if need be. As Retro said we also welcome suggestions.

I'll be honest, that we spent a long time thinking these through and they evolved over time based on the needs of the forum. Thanks all.

I'd like to welcome Henry to the Dharma Wheel staff team as the newest Global Moderator.

So ND-la, looks like he has stepped down as an ordinary member now? :popcorn:

I was personally attacked and treated very badly by Henry in E-sangha, specifically because of him I made effort to discourage people from using E-sangha. I will be leaving this forum if he stays. Don't forget, he and the other bad moderators was the reason this forum was made.

I don't dislike Henry personally, but he's a bad moderator and should be kept out of moderation. I can find you better moderators who have had as much experience in moderating a Dharma forum.

Greetings spiritnoname,

If you read a few posts back, you'll see that Henry has already resigned from the role.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Ah! You're right.

That's good, because I happen to know a few mods from E-sangha and he was a major contributor to the problems with unfair policies. Also, Sakya does not mean Rime, I'm Sakya, I'm also Gelukpa, which is funny because they don't exactly see eye to eye and that showed extensively in E-sangha with no Gelukpa mods and discrimination towards Geluk. I really hope this forum doesn't develop the same problems E-sangha did, even considering bringing Henry here as a mod,.. Are you trying to kill this forum?

I did not see any bias against Geluks on e-sangha besides the minor squabbles on the finer points of emptiness. Perhpas you can enthrall us with exactly what you are referring to.

Henry, Namdrol, and some other junkies, and everyone else who didn't say anything about it. Pinned a closed thread about a Gelukpa teacher, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche with the ending reading that he supported the NKT and basically saying he was a Dorje Shugden supporter if not practitioner.

This kind of thing caused problems all the way in Malaysia where the ladrang and students were told how destructive these people were and to avoid them.

If you let Henry back here you could expect the same kind of attacks and accusations on Gelukpa teachers again.

I was eventually banned while trying to get the admin to see reason and remove that thread.
:ban: For trying to get a accusation with no basis, that the admin had pinned at the top of the Gelukpa section, removed for friends of mine who happen to have H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, who is completely supported by Ganden Shartse Monastery, as their teacher.

I hope this thread isn't locked because of the NKT mention, the thread really isn't about NKT, it's about baseless accusations and dictatorship that E-sangha was well known and was destroyed for.
