Weirdo British Zen Masters
It seems that Brad Warner has a small problem. He is trying to figure out how to continue putting out his good words for the nice people who truly appreciate them, without having to deal with the undesirables that might not. (He has just posted a new item on his Hardcore Zen Blog). Brad likes having his posts read. What Brad apparently doesn't like is having people comment on the content of his writing. He has mentioned more than once what a big hassle that was. He believes his responders were mistaken in their belief that they were giving him feedback. He thinks they were merely using his blog of deep thoughts as a gathering place to chat! Commenting on his words was nothing but silly idle talk. He has said he doesn't want to have to chaperone that kind of scene anymore. It was difficult for him to keep things properly respectful when he was in a serious teaching mood. He has also mentioned more than once that if someone wants to set up a blog which is about his "Hardcore Zen" site, they would have his blessing. Hint, hint.. He said he might even link to it. That way his writing could be read and discussed without him having to suffer the indignity of interacting with oddballs. We would be on our own to figure it all out. So don’t expect him to even read what others are saying about his writing. “I won't read it or monitor it or delete spam and comments from weirdo British Zen Masters with axes to grind. Sorry.” Nothing ruins a good blog more than rampant weirdo British Zen Masters. Brad’s teacher Gudo Nishijima has resumed posting to his own blog. He has kept his comments section open. He has figured out the perfect method of dealing with weird comments. He ignores them and trusts others to do the same.
