    Criticising forum activity

    dear BWB forum

    i have noticed a number of posts of late, which seem to criticise the activity on the forum

    can we please try to avoid doing this because it is criticising what others are doing and then prompts others to engage in this similar style of discussion, which they may not actually be inclined

    often those criticising the activities are not even following the discussion

    if a thread does not resonate with you then please simply avoid it

    the Buddhist way is to essentially make your own path, i.e., inquire into Dhamma in a manner to meet your own defined needs

    thus, if the flavour of certain activity does not resonate with you, then you can start a thread in tune with your own needs

    but please try to avoid criticising the activity of others, when they are engaged in the ordinary activity of a chat forum

    with metta
