Thanks for all the fish,
Hope you change your mind, this place will not be the same without you.

My best wishes to Malcolm and I hope there will be other opportunities for people to access his wisdom.

Indeed, as far as the Tibetan Buddhism section goes, this is an earthquake...
I am quite disheartened by this news.
Thank you so much Malcolm for all you have done.

Very sad, Malcolm was surely a spring of wisdom of the Dharma.

Malcolm, whatever our personal view of his personality display, was the only actual Vajrayana/Dzogchen teacher posting on D.W.
We were lucky to have him. He will be irreplaceable.

Oh man, thats a bummer.
I've gotten pretty frustrated with Malcolm in my relatively short time here, but I have also learned a lot and had a lot of things clarified for me.
Well, thats how the wheel turns. I'll keep an eye out for interesting facebook posts!

Malcolm is gone from DW but he left a treasure of information through many years of posting.If someone is interested
in Tibetan Buddhism they are in luck to have this treasury archived.
He can be reached on facebook so he is not really gone.

Malcom's knowledgeable posts were one of the reasons I joined this website. I wish him the best.

I think this is very sad news.
May everyone benefits from consideration of what he said, what others have said, and how it all goes together.
Peace to everyone.

Whatever is your decision, may you be well, brother. And those coming on face book be able to keep further connection.

Topic cleaned up. Locked.
I think I speak for all the staff here that Malcolm's withdrawal from the community is a loss. His learning and enthusiastic participation here was a great engine for discussion, and many of us have benefited tremendously from our interactions with him.
I know that he would be welcome to return at any time and rejoin the fray here at DharmaWheel.
Queequeg alone has been responsible for the clean-up. If you have specific complaints, PM me.
