Right, this thread was reported for a number of reasons. The problem is, that to show fairness in editing, I would have to delete half the thread. That means that I would have to delete some valid points too. I have decided to leave the thread as it stands, but to make a couple of points points clear:
Criticising somebody that is not present is normally considered bad form. Speaking ill of the recently dead is normally considered despicable.
When one takes into account that the criticism is coming from a practitioner of a vehicle that gives such importance to the bardo period, and the possibly disrupting effect of negative circumstances during that period (for the recently deceased), then that takes that despicability to a whole new level.
People should show some restraint in their criticisms, at this critical point in time, until at least the procedure of the bardo of death and rebirth has come to an end. AT LEAST.
I will reopen the thread, but if people show an incapacity to behave in a sensitive and compassionate manner, then I will lock it, issue formal warnings and even suspensions.
