“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.

Greetings Individual,

Obviously there's different degrees of what will be tolerated in the various subforums, and the Lounge is clearly going to be amongst the most casual.

That said, speech which is intended to harm or belittle others, is equally as unacceptable, no matter where it is spoken. We constantly have to try to maintain an appropriate balance. The article on meta-discussion which is linked to from the Forum Rules may be of interest in that context.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi, pilgrim, fear of tight spaces can be the symptom of a subconscious trauma in another tight channel:

The birth channel of the mama dog, and a beginning struggle for life in those puppies who are born last.

Oxygen may become less, and the contractions of the womb can become increasingly stressful for those who are not the first ones to be born.

I hope that is a helpful explanation. :anjali:

Of course it could be something else as well.

I even read that pets often mirror the issues the human owners have, but of course I can't say he is a mirror of YOUR issues, I don't know you. But perhaps that is also a helpful information.

A very young puppy may even have been uncomfortably stuck between the cushions of a couch, and struggled for air, and now be suspicious. :smile:

Off the record:

If you have meta discussions, you had lax moderation before.

You can avoid meta discussions by eliminating offensive contents before people react offended and before compassionate members feel an inner urge to stand up for them since the staff doesn't.

This is from my experience as Admin in 2 Forae, one of them brimming. We delete offensive contents and send them in a PM, asking the member to remove edges which could bruise. Then they can post it again.

This is the best solution we came across so far, since we so gain the critized member's consent and cooperation, by showing him trust and respect.

This is not molly-coddling, btw. And it's also not meant to bruise you guys. I just think it will help avoid the meta discussions. We don't have any.

Best wishes, :focus:

I didn't mean it to be a serious question, otherwise it would have been elsewhere but the lounge. It was just for a bit of humour. But then again, what do we carry over from our past lives if not our neuroses?

At the risk of adding to a meta discussion....... that depends entirely on ones definition of offensive.
I find the idea that a dog having claustrophobia as a result of its past births, being treated as a serious discussion point, offends deeply my sense of what constitutes a suitable discussion..I am not going to demand the removal of the thread or of posts within it however..
I will make it clear that i find it offensive to my sense of propriety.
Someone calling someone else an idiot doesn't bother me at all...even if I am the idiot in question.
There is in other words some consensus regarding what constitutes offensive material, but not that much.
I think we can safely leave to the mods, decisions about what should be removed.

It is arguable pilgrim that is this simply the nature of genes, and that to ascribe intention to genes is redundant.
The Zen people have a saying..." A goose flies over a lake..the goose does not intend its reflection, the lake does not intend to reflect it ".
In other words a certain set of conditions arises which gives impetus to another set of conditions.
