In a comment to this question, How sacrosanct is the “source material” of Buddhism?, Yuttadhammo wrote,
This sounds a lot like opinion posing as a question... are you really looking for an answer, or are you just trying to promote your own ideas? I'm afraid the latter is more likely to lead to argumentation rather than conclusive answers, in which case this site is ill-suited for such activity.
Krishnaraj Rao (the OP) replied,
Guilty as charged. I do of course hold many opinions, and I am of course trying to promote my own ideas, and looking for intelligent and well-reasoned arguments. Presumably, I am not alone in such an activity. and presumably, such an activity is at least as legitimate on this forum as posing questions to which there are definitive answers. Am I wrong in so presuming?
Yuttadhammo posted similar comments about two other questions yesterday,
Are you really looking for an answer, or are you just looking to express your own opinion? I'm seeing more and more "questions" like this, and they don't really sound like questions to me. Maybe we need some meta discussion on the appropriateness of bias in questions.
Again, this sounds more like a preaching than an inquiry...
