Once again it was pointed out yes but not told how to find it.

Where is the link to view active forums. I can't see it form this vantage point.

Hello Cilla,

Go to the Board Index or front page of the DhammaWheel Forum.

You will see that one of the very top lines is:
View unanswered posts • View new posts • View active topics

If you click on ‘View active topics’ it will activate this link: search.php?search_id=active_topics and you will access these topics.

With metta

“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

http://dhammawheel.com/search.php?searc ... ive_topics
That is the link i looked at to find the active thread. It doesn't show you were to find it. It just shows you the page. However i have found it now.

Well you are entitled to your opinion. But if i think of myself as the customer and you as the salesperson or employee, it seems to me that you are not doing very good customer service since you don't care about the customers experience as expressed by them but only your own.

We think we gave you enough time to respond. Clearly your idea of enough time is differnt to mine.

that said, you can now feel free to close this thread if you like since i've nothing more to add.

Cilla;

I agree with a number of your points. I'm also with you in spirit. I also think your approach is wrong. DW readers aren't customers. We don't pay for this site, we have no entitlements the way a customer would. It is a service offered freely, for the taking or leaving by private individuals.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Yes we are not paying customers. That's true. I was just making a point with my analogy about customers. I have been on many forums and i do appreciate the service offered by these sites and generally do my best to abide by the rules. Also as we don't pay, we are beholden to the rules. However, when a site is over moderated it feels like i'm back at boarding school. The best sites i've been on have a minimum of moderation. I try, though sometimes fail, to behave in the right spirit of the site.

I know this site as a buddhist site has its own peculiar things - for the want of a better word - it wants to promote and to inhibit. Even so over-moderation is irritating to adults.

.There is a British satirical magazine called "Private Eye" Mike, which has a weekly section entitled " Pseuds Corner ".
I think Ms Busch's opus would find a guaranteed place.... :smile:
