Things are so slow here that ....

Postby mindyourmind » Thu Apr 14, 2011 6:58 am

Things are so slow here at DW that we could probably run the forum with snailmail :stirthepot: :applause:

Is there any advertising, or linking to other sites / blogs that could help the old membership total along a bit?

Just a thought - no criticism at all :namaste: Dharma Wheel is my homepage, so no serious dissing allowed :spy:

Well if you want to speed it up then start an interesting and contentious thread about a valid and serious matter: ie anything to do with sex, drugs or rock'n'roll! :tongue:

Maybe a little something called "The Tremendous Benefits of Eating Meat".

Or "Zen is clearly far superior to Dzogchen".

I can't imagine why topics with titles and subject matter that are so obvious would require discussion. :twothumbsup:

Yes well, maybe the Christians had it right. For the mature seeker, well versed in scriptures, strong meat. For children in the Dharma, mild milk - and maybe some vegetables?
