That gosh-darned Buddhist Community
« on: November 28, 2009, 11:06:56 am »
So the malware warnings at BC have become such that I can no longer log on. I can read new posts, but cannot respond. True for both Safari and Firefox. I can access it on my Iphone, but then I worry that my Iphone has ZERO virus protection compared to my laptop computer.

So long story short, I will have a diminished or non-existent presence there.

That's what's happened to me.  Which is why I'm doing my best to invite folks here where there is: a) no malware, b)moderation so that posting continues seamlessly for members.

I'm really sorry BC has turned out to be so problematic, I enjoyed visiting there a lot.  I don't know why there are so many malware issues in the system.  It's been going on months for me, at least.  I noticed a lot of my buddies don't even sign in anymore.  I'm hoping to get at least some of the posting members over here so we can keep our exchanges going...

Yeah I think the only reason I can still post is turning off the Block Attack Sites setting in Firefox. :/ Cleared it up for me but its no fun since so few people are posting at all.

There is a Zen Koan to be found here, I think.  :listen:

Fight back!  Wear sandals!

Unleash the washing machines!
My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.

Is there an FS third column? I dont think so, but who knows.   :suit:
I think thats what the troll wants people to believe.
I see  there's now a "monkey mind" sockpuppet, appeared today.
I think he must be having serious problems keeping up with the sheer number of sockpuppets-maybe eventually he will have one for each member of FS, a grotesque parody of Freesangha!
I have to admit though he gives me a laugh, thats why I still visit.
Its like watching Eastenders, but quieter and less violent!
I think most people only logon to see another episode of:

 "Kalas Great Sock Puppet Theatre!"    ;D

 Applause please !!!!

(I) keep getting e-mails that someone has posted a message to me on BC, but when (I) go there (I) find only the usual chaos.  Can't say that (I) ever got a Malware (computer pathogen) warning, though.
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

If you run any anti-malware or protective programs like anti-virus on your web-browsing you'll get warnings about it being a dangerous site and if you have blockers up it won't let you even get to the site...
