Hello all Zen people and those interested!

There is a new Zen Forum recently created by El Gatito at

https://zen1.space/

which you are all cordially invited to join.

It aims to become a welcoming vibrant and above all useful space for Zen on the interwebs. Most of all, it is a sum of its members and I see ample scope for people to get involved not only in discussion but as Admins and Moderators. Hope to see many of you there.

I have no idea.

TBH, I don't have much of an idea about you at all. So I ask. It was an honest question.

To have some idea :)
To understand you better. I notice you often attach these self-deprecating qualifiers to your posts and so I asked why.

I'm sorry for asking - meant no offense.

In any case, Meido has agreed to not only participate, but help steer the Forum. I hope others follow.

Just a little update (and a shameless plug): Zen Space is over a 1300 posts-strong now with some very good debates happening and more teachers joining.

At a glance, I notice the inevitable 'rebirth' topic locked after only 10 pages, and you saying that it should have been closed even sooner than that, indeed after Medo & Jundo had their say. Is it a discussion forum or a platform for Medo and Jundo to preach their views? If it's the latter, you apparently haven't learned anything from the history of E-Shanga, Zen Forum International, etc.

"At a glance" is how you jump to wrong conclusions, my friend.

If I’m right, it’ll either end up being a TreeLeaf clone were members are expected to bow in deference to the every utterance from the Master in melodic sonance, or it’ll suffer the same fate as ZFI. If I’m wrong then who knows what’s possible.

Mmmm...cynicism. Like a nice warm blanket that comforts and feeds the ego.
