If you feel there moderator abuse or is not impartial or marginalising view coming from not so mainstream lineages how do you report it?
Some moderators have:
- couple of times said that my questions are not genuine, and implied they are not inclined to answer them, and I am not expecting an answer which is far from the truth
- couple of times closed question which might bring your alternative view on a particular matter
- showed selective ignorance to certain topics (symbolism embedded in a Pagoda)
- said I am asking too much questions (there many who ask more)
- I asked questions on Discourses on Satipatthana Sutta - S. N. Goenka (abriged of the original) on phases which was mentioned to be different from the more generally accepted interpretations. I wanted to get an unbiased representation of the other interpretations. These question were mostly received with hostility. Followed by later comments by comments which saying I am not asking genuine questions.
- Above reference makes a reference to the shrine room in a temple (one everyone comes from different practices and comes to this point beyond this all meditation is the same) and unification of the meditation after is all the same. The referenced phase one which different interpretations. May be if this interpretation is not held then this
- I asked questions on the effects on Body Language (something that comes up in Bhante Vimalaramsi's teaching - smiling. He once referenced the psychology research in this area in a talk I cannot locate it any more) trying to get an unbiased Buddhist rationalisation of how it works which was also shot down by the moderator (Banthe was one a student in the same linage but changed due to differences in some interpretations.)
- I asked a question on a practice of a particular type of meditation which I did not get a clear actionable instruction to practice it. So I asked for more elaboration. After this I got comments like I am not asking question with a genuine interest to get answer (I might be wrong about rationalisation as I cannot read throughs.)
If any questions are unclear the moderators can edit them which is a better way than closing them. If the meaning changes the OP can edit it again progressively improving. Not every one is as good with use of language as others. Also comments should be used to clarify the question or suggest improvements mainly and should not be judgemental about the OP or the questions. Also moderation should be light touch in a forum like this and after getting further explanation and clarifications from the OP when you do not understand.
