Anyway, why don't you mods start some interesting threads?  I mean what do you do all day? :teehee:

We keep the wheels of the interwebs turning! Right now, for example, Caz is running in the almighty hamster wheel of eternal power and MM is fighting off the gremlins. SD is on the shift to keep you lot at bay and all the others are out on a quest to gather sprinkly upgrade dust from the deep caves of the slightly malicious dry-mouth imaginary llama!
My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.

Oh, well, that's alright then. :teehee:   I wondered if you'd been abducted by aliens, in which case I would have been quite envious... :lmfao:

I've been trying to get our Facebook out of internet bardo and back into an active status.  :D

I have a long history of starting threads that turn out to be absolutely wretched. Remember my "Would modern psychiatrists diagnose Gautama a person with Asperger's Disorder?" thread?  :lmfao:

And that is only one example in many...

That was yours?  Ay yai yai...

Actually, though, it's never a bad idea to question labels like "Asperger's".

Well, starting threads is always a bit hit and miss, but practice makes perfect.... :wink1:

In my case, practice makes problems.   I keep having to reject new ideas for threads such as:

Why are Buddhists prone to Prostrate problems?

Why did Buddha need a Consort to become enlightened?
 

Spot the fake?  Yup, the first one.  The second, an assertion about scripture mentioning that Buddha had a  Consort, was made by a well-respected teacher over on DW.  Eek!  :lipsseald:

Hi Yeshe, the Buddha had a consort must be up there with Jesus had a consort, which was posted somewhere recently :wink1:

Ah, that would have been in his lost years in Tibet!  Just you wait, Dan Brown must have that on his list of plots  - after all, Tibetans do use the Star of David, y'know. ;)

I want a kitty like that.

Good to release ban. Hopefully, it will give you good karma, and you won't be sorry.
