some of the old timers

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

I hope you are all aware that RSF is just a front operation for the real EmptyFlower, which operates on the dark web.

You mean you're not following me on Fakebook, Twatter, Insultagram, mememetube and my blog?

But you are right, as a member I probably should post more on here as well.

;D Only the blog, sorry. But maybe I'll send you a friend request on FakeBook....

Yes please participate. I can respect understand Mr Wallbridge's POV though, and I am sure others share it.

I miss some of the old voices on the board, but not really the older times. Too many quarrellists.
Quarrellists ...Is that a word? Sounds legit to me...

As an old timer [ca 2000 on EF] I occasionally post. The MA section has pretty much been taken over by TCC who go on endlessly about push hands, the OTT has occasionally had some topics of interest but most of it is old news. I try and post something to stimulate conversation but get little response except from Steve.I sometimes rack up a score by posting something outrageous about dt but that's become boring. Was not aware of 'secret' facebook, I spend a lot of time on FB, its less than ideal, I have seen as many cats , dogs and cute babies as I can stand

This, too, is part of his virtue.

"Whereas some brahmans and contemplatives, living off food given in faith, are addicted to debates such as these — 'You understand this doctrine and discipline? I'm the one who understands this doctrine and discipline. How could you understand this doctrine and discipline? You're practicing wrongly. I'm practicing rightly. I'm being consistent. You're not. What should be said first you said last. What should be said last you said first. What you took so long to think out has been refuted. Your doctrine has been overthrown. You're defeated. Go and try to salvage your doctrine; extricate yourself if you can!' — he abstains from debates such as these. This, too, is part of his virtue."
sn56.9 wrote:"Monks, do not wage wordy warfare, saying: 'You don't understand this Dhamma and discipline, I understand this Dhamma and discipline'; 'How could you understand it? You have fallen into wrong practices: I have the right practice'; 'You have said afterwards what you should have said first, and you have said first what you should have said afterwards'; 'What I say is consistent, what you say isn't'; 'What you have thought out for so long is entirely reversed'; 'Your statement is refuted'; 'You are talking rubbish!'; 'You are in the wrong'; 'Get out of that if you can!'

"Why should you not do this? Such talk, monks, is not related to the goal, it is not fundamental to the holy life, does not conduce to disenchantment, dispassion, cessation, tranquillity, higher knowledge, enlightenment or to Nibbana. When you have discussions, monks, you should discuss Suffering, the Arising of Suffering, its Cessation, and the Path that leads to its Cessation. Why is that? Because such talk is related to the goal... it conduces to disenchantment... to Nibbana. This is the task you must accomplish."
an10.69 wrote:"There are these ten topics of [proper] conversation. Which ten? Talk on modesty, on contentment, on seclusion, on non-entanglement, on arousing persistence, on virtue, on concentration, on discernment, on release, and on the knowledge & vision of release. These are the ten topics of conversation. If you were to engage repeatedly in these ten topics of conversation, you would outshine even the sun & moon, so mighty, so powerful — to say nothing of the wanderers of other sects."
