Here I go again...

Postby ball-of-string » Sun Mar 14, 2010 7:05 am

In the 80's, a group of cyber-Buddhists in a CompuServe chat corrupted me away from being a good little Christian. They brainwashed me with their logical ways and their insistence that I am my only savior. I have since followed the Buddha's instruction manual, it has worked out okay for me.

I have drifted in and out of various Buddhist forums. Sometimes I contribute, sometimes I just read. A friend told me about this forum, and here I am.

Hi Ball-of-string -
Welcome -

I was on Compuserve in the '80's too - member of something called the Religion Forum which had a Buddhist section, which is where I posted for the most part. Those were the days! :hi:
