  1. The Chinese Communist Revolution

    I'll gladly take them on, even all on my own if necessary.
  2. What became of Qigong Master Yan Xin?

    So, how about that call out by Elizabeth Bik?
  3. Cultivation in chinese comics

    I've never heard of these things but they sound very interesting so I'll check them out, thanks for the thread and posts.
  4. The identity-less and purposeless thread

    I didn't sign in for over a year. I did have a read every now and then, most of what I find interesting is in public sections anyway. Since that time it seems the mods were de-modded. So much for mod powers. It's too bad most of my posts that were in Off-Grid seem to be gone. I do save pages, so it's feasible to copy paste that back up. But, should I? I think its still over everyone's heads. That's an honest view so don't take it personally, just try evolve your understandings of politics instead.
  5. The identity-less and purposeless thread

    Thanks to all for your input. I think this was a good learning experience for many. It is the Autumnal Equinox today, happy Equinox.
  6. Hey all. So it looks like I received a warning from s1va about that thread. I would like the admin and other mods to have a look and get a second opinion. I don't think I'm violating any terms of service in there and I have only been replying to others and not starting anything. I think s1va wants to take advantage of mod powers.
  7. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    Actually its you and others who have a hard time doing that. I couldn't care less if you are a mod or not either.
  8. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    My quoting messed up, looks like I have to do two posts. Anyway, I meant that in a general sense not only you, but ok.
  9. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    Exactly, I would hope for OP to be able to help themselves.
  10. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    Homie, I'm calm. I mean to say do you have anything more for OP? Because there really isn't much good cause to keep focusing on me.
  11. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    The thing is, it's kind of a mistake to presume that not sharing in an ever bounding positivity means something negative or that to let others or something be is either positive or negative. I did say that I had experiences where I felt I had best intentions for others when saying or doing something but it didn't turn out well, so sometimes being positive isn't really being positive after all. The result doesn't always reflect the intent, the intent isn't where its all at. Anything for OP? I'm really trying to make this not about me or people's reactions towards me.
  12. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    Well, I'm a decent writer. I don't think a few short paragraphs is a lot to say nor did it take long at all. Notice my low post count too. You seem to like to make points based on your observations, maybe you should reconsider your sense of observation. Now, if you're done, fine. Did you want to help OP out though?
  13. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    Thanks. I would. That's totally fine, I am not even criticizing people here for that and I wasn't the one to first bring up the topic. The thing is, it can only go so far can it? If you want to raise a family for instance, it would be rather odd if your partner in parenting and kids were always only interactable via computer or some other device wouldn't it? I think there is a lot of defensiveness about the idea in the moment about forum use and what for or to what extent. This is all distracting from what OP originally said, so instead of going back and forth with me, why not address OP a bit more again?

    A broom as a weapon was the first thought that came to me too, but I see what you're saying. That's a good way to see it too.
  15. Identity-less and purposelessness dilemma.

    Hence I said "face saving".
