I'm not convinced the answers given by the teachers present at ZFI are necessarily more accurate, useful, or authoritative than answers given by committed, experienced students of the Dharma with no teaching credentials here at Dharmawheel. And in my opinion the conversation at that board suffers because no one listens to each other, they only listen to the one with the authoritative position on the board of the teacher (the Sage on the Stage problem crops up..). That's the downside.
just my two bits, even though no one asked for it...
