There are four main categories of posting.

  1. Promoting truth.
  2. Promoting sangha.*
  3. Promoting argument.
  4. Promoting self.

 

Quote

* A sangha is a community of friends practicing the dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness. The essence of a sangha is awareness, understanding, acceptance, harmony and love. When you do not see these in a community, it is not a true sangha, and you should have the courage to say so. But when you find these elements are present in a community, you know that you have the happiness and fortune of being in a real sangha.

Another way of viewing categories of posting is that there are those emanating from

  1. Exiles (burdened or unburdened).
  2. Managers (burdened or unburdened).
  3. Firefighters (burdened or unburdened).
  4. The Self.

I like it and hope it holds true for certain threads and PPDs.   The board is a sangha to some, but not all.  We are a very diverse lot, encompassing more then the sangha ideals. 

 

Yet I hope those ideals and the individuals who honor them are an example to the board of kindness and restraint.
