    Talk to BDC- redux

    Dear BDC,

     

    Can you please restore the feature that allows one to see the author of a thread without clicking into the thread. It would save time for people like me who are not here all the time.

    Also, can you please re-set the front page of each forum with the most recent posting time? Right now it still looks..to the occasional user..like some of the forums have been inactive for months. No one wants to click into an inactive forum .

     

    thanks

    While we are it how about being able to delete your own posts?

    I would love to see it as well..but I doubt BDC will ever allow users to see who reports posts..but it is pretty easy to figure out on your own. A few months ago I was 90 percent sure who was behind the abundance of deleted posts. One thing the social sciences teach you is recognizing patterns. The patterns of deleted posts and comments regarding them are easy to recognize. Today...I stand at 99% certainty on who is behind the deleted posts both in the politics forum and the Red Sox forum..another forum that was completely insufferable for quite a while. Seems I owe those guys down there an apology..lol

    I think you misread my post. I too want deleted posts to note who was responsible. And why. It's important to note the lack of a question mark. It looks like this "?"

    [/QUOTE]

    The way most people have no clue about grammar it wouldn't surprise me that you just simply didn't use a question mark. 

    And I think the "why" will be obvious based on the person responsible for deletion.

    "And why?" and "And why." are both grammatically correct. What you're missing is the use of punctuation. Punctuation can totally change the meaning of an otherwise grammatically correct sentence.

    It's not surprising that you don't know the difference. One must question your ability to read anything. You actually doubled down on your own ignorance.

    [/QUOTE]

    Hahaha....um yeah I'm well aware of the difference. You missed my point. I thought you were asking me a question but simply missed the question mark. Given your history, you questioning what I post wouldn't exactly be uncharacteristic of you. But thanks for showing what a complete and utter d i c k you are. Good job.

    "I furthur resolve to concentrate on the Fourth of Buddha's Noble Truths...found below.

    Among others is "Speaking in a truthful and non-harmful way...under Right Speech."

    This one is particularly difficult to maintain when discussing politics, which by nature often leads to heated exchanges.

    Yesterday, a poster and I both violated this princible. And BDC rightfully so, pulled many of our posts, including posts from this thread, on their own volition IMO.

    They saw a situation of "mutual verbal combat" and got involved, also IMO.

    To be honest , before studying Buddhism, I always thought the truth, and nothing but the truth, could be used as a verbal weapon that harmed another very much.

    Nonetheless, I am re-dedicating myself to this tenet. I let one poster get "under my proverbial skin" and I posted in a way that is not usual for me. I will not speak for the poster in question.

    IMO, I have been doing pretty well up until yesterday adhering to this difficult tenet.

    Under Right Livelihood you should have a non-harmful livelihood. Well, my chosen profession of practicing the law has presented a serious challenge there as well.

    But as Reuben, I have done the best I can without violating the oath I took when I was sworn in as a lawyer.

    I do not just post. I am a political activist.  Have to adhere to these principles in real life...just like Christians should adhere to their Christian principles both here and in real life.

     

    This thread was started as one of those lighter threads. It surely spiraled off into something else because of this and yet a third poster who right off the back attacked my beliefs as well as me.

     

    All I can do is be responsible for my own speech and actions...not others.

    So, I will endeavor to continue to contribute to this board but without violating the above as much as possible.

    I also will refer to Buddhism as little as possible from here on out. Hopefully other posters will do the same."

     

     


    I guess that  Right Speech pledge decided to take the weekend off?
