Anny Oakleaf gets her gun ...

I, in the meantime, will continue to address what I feel needs 
addressing, be it a knife in the neck or your characteristically dry and
humourless configurations of words you call posts.

Post hoc, ergo propter hoc

Why you're so right Anny.
Unmoistened by sentimentality.

Good name, I like it. Wolf Baiter is good too but the Anny (or Annie) is even 
better as I always liked being called that. I am not really an Annie though, 
it doesn't seem to suit me because only my niece seems to call me that.

No sentimentalist me. No sentimentalist you. And it is also my good fortune not

in his telling, it did not sound like it left him with *mere disappointment.*

Barry has always indulged in exaggerated claims.

The problem with Barry is that some people, not
knowing any better, take what he says seriously.

Add these to Ann's list: I am free to ignore the
quack peddling harmful remedies to the gullible;
or the radio talk-show host lying about a

You must live a very subdued life indeed if you think my examples above are

Wow! Defensive, much? I applaud your self control during this *one week*, but 
you're making like it is a long-term trend, which I definitely need to see to

Says Barry, confirming Alex's observation. We all
knew this was the case, of course, but it's
interesting to see Barry admitting to it: the *only*
reason he has been supporting the posting limits
has been to give him more opportunities to get me.

(One does hope, however, that he isn't considering
himself to be one of the people who aren't even

Barry has many techniques for attacking people

when he gets tired of those, he attacks by name
folks who aren't here to respond.

Nothing's good or bad but thinking makes it so.  I can demonize ANYONE or 
praise them as if they're divine.   So can you.  I see some of your choices, 
and you see mine.

Like all of us, Barry is a human being who cannot predict any thought before it 
manifests.  Blind to our brains iz us.  And in blindness, we all perforce 
stumble.

I am on record here; I've sinned mightily far beyond the immorality of sitting 
in a cafe and farting.  The stone you hand me, Dr., cannot be firstly thrown by 
me -- it's against the laws of Christian Physics!  

Perhaps if you really want me to dislike Barry, you'll tell me how to 
prioritize my scheduling of my hatred, cuz there's, like, say, oh I don't know, 
let's go with 4,935,634,545 people on the planet who are messing up in truly 
Kali Yuga mindfully wrought spectacularities, and sorting them out is a bother, 
but brother Barry surely isn't one of the terrorists, one of the fascists, one 
of the Illuminati, one of the corrupt politicians, one of the war lords, one of 
the psychotics ruining life for (actual number alert) 99.9 percent of humanity.

So, nah, he's just a rascal.  Let me know if he's given you a paper cut or he's 
hit you with a spitball, before I'll give Barry any Badge of Evil Distinction.  

And though I can field strip and reassemble any of my Trikkes blindfolded, I 
have a trikking buddy who's helping me with the new beast we're birthing; we 
are not inventing wizards, we make a ton of mistakes, break stuff, pretending 
we're doing Zen and the Art of Trikke Manifestance -- it ain't Menlo Park over 
here.  Last week we scrapped almost the whole design, and there went $1500 
worth of new parts that won't be used.  That was us being stupid, ya see?  So 
no credits over here for wrench handiness.

But when this new horse gallops, STAND BACK.  It will spritz rocks and clods 
behind it in twin ROOSTER TAILS OF DEATH.  Or, take a 42 year old mom to the 
store and back with six bags of groceries for about two cents worth of 
electricity.  

Got a big vision going here, so, yep, I'm as dangerous as a combo of Henry Ford 
and Ramana Maharshi.the world could actually change its carbon footprint 
because of this machine or something like it, and I'm exploring what it would 
take to make that happen.  And the smells of French farts have yet to distract

No, I'm not. I'm referring to Barry being hugely in favor of posting limits

Judy, I guess salyavin meant that he jumped into a thread midstream and then 
wanted to see it from the beginning. Right before he temporarily left, he 
mentioned having to scroll back 3 pages to find something.


As for my other question...oh I see what you mean. Well with unlimited posting 
there might be way more short, snappy posts and way less longer post, which 
aren't by definition, IMHO, therefore more substantive. But that's another

Bogus excuse. Hardly anybody here ever does that.

Except Barry, of course, who does it *constantly*.

 to *demonstrate* their own attachments, hatreds, 
 and reactivity, and thus point out the difference between 
 their PR and their reality, can you think of a more 
 effective way to do so?

That isn't why Barry does it. He does it because it
makes him feel superior and more powerful. The older
he gets, the more inadequate he feels, and the more
compulsive and sadistic his posts become. I've watched
his development for 17 years.

jeez turq, it's just another yucky part of being human, liking to think we 
might be better than others. Maybe had survival value at one time and thus 
hardwired into the reptilian brain. And because that aspect is so very tricky, 
you got the ones who are unconsciously and or secretly proud of their 
humbleness! My guess is that a real saint doesn't bother about it very much at 
all. IMLE (in my limited experience) devotion and or gratitude are the best 
remedies. Enliven another part of the brain, save the psychology.

 No, from the POV of Yahoo's servers, FFL is merely one of thousands of

Well, some years back, they did mess with it in a major way: they did away with 
storing file attachments, including the removal of all previously stored 
attachments in the archives. People had been using adult Yahoo Groups to trade 
porn images and video clips, and the attachments must have been taking up huge 
amounts of drive space on the servers.

How long do you intend to run this test?

 If part of my goal were to get TMers or other seekers
 who consistently present themselves as better than
 others to *demonstrate* their own attachments, hatreds,
 and reactivity, and thus point out the difference between
 their PR and their reality, can you think of a more
 effective way to do so?

 WHAT in the post do they focus on? WHAT do they react
 to?

 What you focus on, you become.

 Are you suggesting that they have no *choice* but to
 react the way they do? That's not much of a commercial
 for the spiritual path, is it?

 No, from the POV of Yahoo's servers, FFL is merely one of thousands of 
 groups. For the most part, it's just a database with lots of small plain 
 text entries.
 They would need to store the rich text (HTML).  The email comes
 to us with both HTML and plain text.  The system is probably a
 horrible hack that Yahoo engineers are afraid to mess with.
 Well, some years back, they did mess with it in a major way: they did away 
 with storing file attachments, including the removal of all previously stored 
 attachments in the archives. People had been using adult Yahoo Groups to 
 trade porn images and video clips, and the attachments must have been taking 
 up huge amounts of drive space on the servers.

A while back when I was experimenting with including an image in a post 
when I downloaded the post and looked at the source the image data was 
actually there but disassociated with the post so it wouldn't display.  
IOW, like when we use an email client to embed a picture and that works 
but Yahoo breaks the association.  Aren't nanny states and corporations 
great?

On a similar subject, AOL laid off about half their Patch staff (500 
people) yesterday and are supposedly going to shut down a lot of Patch 
sites across the country.  We have one for this town but it is rather 
lame so if they shut it down it would not be a great loss. Thing is, 
before a recent upgrade of the Patch software, people were very active 
on it.  When they upgraded the software people's logins got broken and 
autologins stopped working.  I suspect many of the local users couldn't 
remember their login.  In fact I think with the old software I only had 
to login once and it maintained it from then on.  Nowadays I have to 
login again too frequently.

It brings up a certain issue.  Small town papers have gone away along 
with small town radio stations.  That's where you could find the news.  
There is one big corporate run paper in this area and they are piss poor 
at local reporting.  So news blogs and web sites are the replacement.  
But many are run with this corporate sites like Patches which need to 
generate enough ad revenue to exist.  We have one local blog that is NOT 
a Patch but part of a Bay Area news service that is quite good about 
news.  The other problem with Patch sites is they are often run by tech 
semi-illiterates who might have been able to set up, using a static IP, 
their own server costing next to nothing to run.  People throw away old 
computers that are quite capable of running a small town blog.

Not too many me too posts per se, but quite a few 
otherwise frivolous ones, some combative ones, as
well as some substantive discussions, IMHO.

Rick, I told Ravi at one point I thought this first
week was sort of like a bunch of malnourished people
suddenly having access to a banquet. We've overeaten
this first week, but it's already showing signs of
slowing down, and I suspect it won't be quite so

There's just too much to ignore at the moment, it was easy when
you didn't have to scroll back. I'd hate to miss the one or two

I think we all did better with 50 per week to be honest.

Yep, my own abuse to all of you will be less. I agree with Auth, it will taper 
down. It allowed us to get to know one another on topics and my own knee jerk 
comments, well, I pulled a couple realizing my own overture haha. 
One will be lucky to see me post 40 next week!  
It is always fun to think one is raging against the machine

and also to keep certain people from having to only play bananagrams the rest 
of their lives, well, I see a better future in this!  LOL

 Not too many me too posts per se, but quite a few 
 otherwise frivolous ones, some combative ones, as
 well as some substantive discussions, IMHO.
 
 Rick, I told Ravi at one point I thought this first
 week was sort of like a bunch of malnourished people
 suddenly having access to a banquet. We've overeaten
 this first week, but it's already showing signs of
 slowing down, and I suspect it won't be quite so
 crazy for the three weeks coming up.

It's also really valuable for those that can't help but externalize everything 
and internalize nothing (another smile, nod, and wink to Share).  Now that I'm 
not receiving emails in my inbox again, I can deal.  I vote to give it a month 
and check in again.

Here is one idea, that I had a while ago, when this discussion came up, of how 
to improve the overall quality of the forum.

The idea is to have a summary, a daily synopsis of the BEST OF FFL. Of course, 
YMMV regarding what is the BEST, it could be simply a very well written, 
entertaining piece of writing, like the post Barry just made about Avignon, it 
could be a satire, it could also be a discussion back and forth, were good and 
new arguments are being presented on each side, but put into a format easy to 
read.

All in all, it should be something, that stands on its own, which doesn't refer 
to other posts which you would have to follow. 

There is something similar called NDhighlights 
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights/, a daily synopsis, drawing it's 
material from different other Yahoo groups related to non-duality.

Anyway, such a synopsis, could clear the wheat from the chaff, but it would 
need some work. It would be more readable, and could entice people to format 
their posts better, and to write more content to make it into the Highlight 
version. But it also would need people to edit it, best a variety of people 
with different POVs. Its just an idea.

I read the FFL website like one of those arrival/departure monitors, at the

open it. If not, no problem.

 Posting limits just said to me that TM'ers were very inept at the

loving this vacation from the idiotic posting limits, and if you reinstate 
them, you will need to seek out another moderator if you want the limit 
enforced.

It has been most enjoyable to prance freely on this beach with little to stop 
the sun's tanning rays, only the occasion of tan lines that may appear from the 
accumulated shaded areas, while frolicking on this course footed environment 
one calls FFL.

Continue this free flow!  Just because, because, Alex says so!

Good for you, I don't blame you. I think we should see how the month goes from 
here. I think it would be useful to stop thinking about the number 50 as 
relevant to anything. If things get obnoxiously lop-sided or tiresome with 
boring posts then we can revisit how to legislate controls. Seems a pity if it 
would come to that though.

Well, it was originally all about Shemp, Lawson, and Judy. Shemp is gone and 
Lawson hardly posts at all, so it's all about Judy, or more to the point, 
Barry's obsession with Judy and his need to have her controlled. Frankly, I'm 
tired of being a pawn in that ego drama. 

Considering that I'm not a heavy poster, and I was never in favor of posting 
limits to begin with, I think after all these years of being The Enforcenator, 
it's time for FFL's post limit to be enforced by a more active user who 
actually is in favor of posting limits. I'll happily keep the post count script 
running and handle subscriptions and other helpful stuff as needed, but keeping 
track of who overposts and killing/reinstating posting privileges needs to be 
done by someone else.

Stay tuned, Alex, I have a solution.  I think I mentioned here that I built a 
motorized Trikke that's faster than any that they sell as production models.  
Goes 18.5 mph on the flats, faster downhill, of course, and it's a thrill, but 
it's not enough from me to tell you that your long gravel road isn't a problem. 
 

But.  I'm working on building a much more powerful model.  With dual rear wheel 
drive and a whole lotta other stuff.  Can't say too much more, so this 
announcement is a mere teaser, but I'm thinking about ya as a test rider.  Do 
you have life insurance?

OH OJA OBA BA ...JEEBA
A Grand jeté= Grand allegro: Jeter /jeté: From the French verb 'to
throw'. A jeté is the usual word for a jump in ballet.  A large leap
from one foot to the others, a technical jump in which the dancer jumps
high in the air with both legs open horizontally, almost as if flying.

  Oh ... I git it. FFL enlightenment in full display.
  
 Does it bother anyone else that the mime is talking? 


So, it's all about the mime. Go figure!

 Well, it was originally all about Shemp, Lawson, 
 and Judy. Shemp is gone and Lawson hardly posts 
 at all, so it's all about Judy, or more to the 
 point, Barry's obsession with Judy and his need 
 to have her controlled. Frankly, I'm tired of 
 being a pawn in that ego drama. 

Ahem. Who obsessed on *whom* during this last
week? I might point out that the person you're
naming as the obsessor in this scenario neither 
responded to nor mentioned the people obsessing 
on *him* the whole week. Now do a quick count on 
the number of posts they made obsessing on him. 

So much for their claim that We only attack 
him because he attacks us.

That said, I have no objections to the post 
count thingy being discontinued if most people
here want it to be. It's been so pleasant NOT
interacting with a certain group of people here
that I will likely continue that approach after
this experiment is over. They, from their side,
are free to continue obsessing on me and Share
and the rest of their enemies, thus demon-
strating who and what they are to anyone with
eyes to see it. Win-win. 

My larger prediction was, and remains, that 
whether limited to 50 posts or 200, there really
aren't a lot of interesting ideas being posted
on FFL, and most of the ones that are posted and
argued about are Other People's Ideas. I think
that's a sad commentary on the philosophy that
promised them all a boost in their creative
intelligence.

I've been on vacation during this period, and 
thus free to just write the things I felt like
writing, on my own schedule. I had fun with that,
and ignored the small shit, not to mention the
small assholes from whence that small shit 
issued. :-) I think that a few of my posts in
this period were both creative and Not Other 
People's Ideas, but I'll allow you to make your 
own assessment of them. I'll probably continue 
to do the same thing in the future. Consider it 
my balanced, humble, and above all compassionate 
attempt to balance out the overwhelming mediocrity 
of this place.  :-)  :-)  :-)

People can react to my posts -- and to me -- however
they want. Or, they could realize the folly of
believing that they should, let alone that they
have to. That's an ego game. If your EGO is
so affronted by something said here by another
poster that you feel the need to get them and 
convince others that this is a Bad Person, then I 
think all you'll accomplish by pursuing that goal 
is to demonstrate how big your EGO really is. 
*Especially* if you've claimed that you're all 
enlightened, and thus don't have one. :-) 

In other words, I don't care if the posting limits
are dropped. They've just been a convenient way
to rub one person's nose into her own tendency to
obsess, and continually fight imaginary EGO battles,
often with people who aren't even fighting back. 
That will continue to happen whether this person
is able to post 500 times a week, or 5. Those who
consider her their role model will do the same
thing. Their call. The rest of us are free to 
react to that -- or NOT react -- as we see fit.

So go forth and leave the Robocop duties to some
other hapless soul if that's what you want to do.
From my point of view, this experiment is already
a success. Given the opportunity to post as much
as they wanted, most people here -- especially the
small group of people who seem to live for getting
the people they don't like -- really DON'T have
anything else to say. If they did, they'd have
taken advantage of this week to say it.

Just my two centimes...
