In case you were wondering what happened to supersramana's thread - I removed it from view.
When we set up Dhamma Wheel some years ago we were clear that we did not want Dhamma Wheel to be just an enclave for Theravadins, instead, we wanted it to be a vibrant community that accepted everyone so long as they had a genuine interest in the Theravada and were willing to abide by our TOS.
Dhamma Wheel has been established to provide a venue for the discussion of the Dhamma of the Theravada. Within our scope discussion of the relative differences between Theravada and non-Theravada Buddhist schools is fine, but Dhamma Wheel was never intended to be a venue for the vitriolic anti-mahayanist polemics that supersramana posted.
If you have any questions or concerns I welcome them here on this thread or privately via pm.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
