There must be a single good Dharma Friend that he trust that can notify him of the dangerous state of mind he is in? It's not the first time someone who only focuses on knowledge and philsophy who has turned onto the path of slandering the Dharma.
As one who has had sharp differences with Huseng perhaps my opinion will carry some weight here. First off, I see no evidence that he has slandered the Dharma, certainly not in this thread. Second off, he has an undeniably acute mind, substantial education, and extensive first-hand experience of Buddhism as currently practiced in Asia.
This does not mean he is invariably correct. However, like many of the mod team, myself included, he does post like any other user and advances his views. I have never seen him use his position as a moderator to supress opposition to his views.
So. If you really think he is slandering the Dharma, which is a pretty severe accusation by the way, give some thought to where and how you express this. Such a severe accusation requires conclusive documentation and I think you will find Huseng's "offenses against the Dharma" are far less than a number of longtime posters here, again myself included.
Beefs against the mods have a place, but one thing I am sure of is that they do not belong in threads on completely other topics. Such complaints would, I think, properly be directed to Mr. Snyder, who owns the board. So please do not continue along these lines here.
