Curious how "Freely" FreeSangha operates. 

The shugden thread is locked, except for the true believers who can post and then lock it again -to keep it pure I suppose.  When I put up a couple of posts giving criticisms of shugden worship, it was locked lickity split and nothing could be added to it.

I will wager if another thread critical of shugden worship were started, it also would be shut down quickly.

The DZ is for such discussion, not 'Gelug' or 'NKT' which are primarily there for practitioners to explore practice.

Some threads OP's have also asked others to respect that they are there for publishing information, and in the case of a locked thread you may ask the Mod to add to it if they feel what you wish to post is suitable.

'critical' means analytical.  If you wish to be adversely critical, all we ask is adherence to Right Speech which includes avoiding insults or attacks on the practices of others.

I personally doubt that anything new can be added to the many, many threads on this topic - every one I have ever seen has degenerated into attacks on the practices of others, but feel 'free' to post in the DZ. ;)

(I assume you changed your mind from when you posted this on the thread: ''So I would suggest that all posts save the first one with the links, be deleted and the thread locked. ''.  And at the end of the thread: ''The info from both sides is now represented & available for study - lock the thread.'') :smack:
