As someone who took part in the upset over the Danish cartoons, I 
felt I was trying to bring some sense of Zen to the discusssion -- 
name calling is unproductive in seeking to solve what one sees as a 
problem.  My responses were evidently judged to be offensive and the 
whole episode has been deleted, so I don't post in an attempt to raise 
it again.  Since I was part of such an upset, it seemed best to me not 
to post.  I haven't gone away in anger.  I have withdrawn because I 
was part of an upset the moderator wished to end.
   We all bring our own life experience to the study of Zen, seeking a 
different and better path, while still bearing the burdens -- real and 
psychological -- of who we are and where we've been.  Sometimes it is 
hard to look beyond our situation and our experience.  Again, I 
apologize to all for any comments I made that caused offense to be 
taken.
