I am sorry tilt if you found my "ninnie" intemperate language. I do apologise.
As far as an "honest discussion" goes about this or that tradition or technique, I have observed that they usually become vitriolic rather than honest. So I will decline your offer.
However you are right in that if I refuse to discuss the different vipassana traditions then I should not take shots at them. Having said that, is it not the Buddha's Dhamma that is up for discussion and not any particular sect of the Sangha. I will reserve my comments to how I perceive differing practices and their relevance to the Buddha's words.
BTW Your comment "I suspect it reflects your actual feelings about those who disagree with your point of view"
is a little bit like what you chastised me for. You dont know me but you appear to know my feelings. Is this vipassana from afar
