I didn't really think much about the whole comment system, but the various comments I've received have prompted me to point out a few guidelines for posting comments to this weblog, as it was not meant to be a sounding board for the opinions and views of other people (it was meant to be a sounding board for the opinions and views of me ).
- Please don't post lengthy discussions or arguments in the comments section - if you want to teach me something, please send it directly to me, via the e-mail link on the right-hand side of this page... otherwise please write your own weblog and I'll be sure to link to it if I so see fit.
- Please don't post questions or comments unrelated to the post at hand (e.g. asking why your lengthy discussions were deleted).
- Please don't turn the comments section into a conversation - if you want to converse with me, please send me an e-mail; if you want to converse with the people who post comments on this page, please send them an e-mail; if they didn't leave their e-mail, they clearly are not interested in conversing with you.
- Comments which distort or misrepresent the teachings of the Lord Buddha will be deleted.
Also, please consider including your e-mail address in the comment - I've set them to be hidden, so you should not receive any unsolicited spam.
Thanks for all the nice comments... it's nice to know there are nice people out there
