Thank you (Free)Sangha!
« on: September 28, 2010, 12:30:50 pm »
I want to point out how fantastic the way our members and moderators have handled the last few squabbly threads.  No one is perfect, quarrels happen, but I want to commend our membership and staff for how kind and fair they have approached each other.

We've had people on the ball about protecting the quality of dialogue by keeping their language kind even when pointing out a problem to a peer or moderator/admin.  Thank you.

We've had people correct themselves without pride and really showed that dharma is a universal truth when realized.  It has given us on staff a whole new inspiration in our constantly renewed commitment to make this the most a forum experience can give its (sangha)members!

I wanted to point this out now, while it's still in my mind, before the next set of squabbles in my life arise in my awareness, and I must concentrate on clearly seeing that situation.  But for right now I give you my gratitude :headbow: .  Thank you FreeSangha for being my :heart: community and be the main supporter of my practice.  May I be able to give as much as I receive from you.  I probably will never be able to repay this kindness.  So for now suffice it to say thank you for all your effort.  You show me dharma in action everyday.

For those of you that don't know, Caz is now available as a smiley. When you are posting a reply click on 'more' to the rightof the smileys above the text field--and there he is!

Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.

I have asked if we could replace all of the smileys with a Caz emoticon. Sad Caz. Happy Caz. Brick to the Head Caz.

My request was denied....
