Is there an implication of ill will here, if so, toward whom?

Sounds like compassion is being confused with ill-will, here.  :namaste:

Confused about compassion causing bad karma. Help me understand your question. Thanks

I was reading a Buddhist chat site where a person claimed some bhikkhunis who gained enlightenment were prostitutes, as follows:

Quote
There have been ... prostitutes who realised the Dhamma quick, as they possible do today, if coming proper in touch.

It is bad karma to call a bhikkhuni a "prostitute"?   :scratch:


Considering the source, I'd say the ill will extends to many/all.

The actual post that spawned this thread has mostly to do with someone who is no longer here.

This thread was merely started for some fun & no-one involved had ill-will. The actual post that spawned this thread has mostly to do with someone who is no longer here. Best to let this thread go & move on.  :namaste:

Are you implying that this forum is of lower quality in some way than another?

Good sir & friend Meez. By 'high quality forum', I was referring to a forum that is not run by Buddhists, is primarily focused only on Buddhist philosophy and has a question & answer format thus allowing very little scope for debate because a member can only post one answer to a question. Johann spends his time there spamming invalid questions & answers that must often be deleted. Unlike most Buddhist forums, Johann cannot be banned yet is moderated far more often due to the strict academic based posting rules. This is what I meant by 'high quality forum', namely, a forum that actually only allows high quality questions & answers because it aims to be an academic scholarly forum. Any off-topic or poor quality question or answer is deleted as a matter of policy. For example, Johann's last effort at a question is on 'hold' for review due to being down voted by at least 4 members. This forum also has forums on many topics, around 200, such as Christianity, computing, mathematics, drones, world history, home improvement, etc. Each forum seems to follow the same strict rules & policies. I started this thread on Free Sangha to discuss one of Johann's answers here with Johann, namely, where on a question about prostitution, Johann answered many prostitutes (rather than ex-prostitutes) gain enlightenment in Buddhism. But it seems Johann has now vanished from Free Sangha. Therefore, since this topic is redundant, due to Johann's absence, you are welcome to delete it.

Kind regards & thank you for your good work here.  :namaste:

I know you weren't being malicious or degrading in some way with the "high quality" stuff.  Was just giving you a hard time.  All in good fun.

Take care!
