Regarding the user Troy_S, a little zen story
One day a young Buddhist on his journey home came to the banks of a wide river. Staring hopelessly at the great obstacle in front of him, he pondered for hours on just how to cross such a wide barrier.
Just as he was about to give up his pursuit to continue his journey he saw a great teacher on the other side of the river. The young Buddhist yells over to the teacher, “Oh wise one, can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river”?
The teacher ponders for a moment looks up and down the river and yells back, “My son, you are on the other side”.
Now before drawing hasty conclusions… Troy is not the Zen master ,-)
There is not a zen master, only rivers and monks; some more desperate than others, some drunk, some friendly, some swimming naked, soma making dinner and a hut, some convinced beyond reasoning that they’re “the” zen master, HA!
Regarding ownership of the contents;
I am as anarchic, individualistic and selfish (though everything has its contrary) as they come, so I do understand the frustration and the impulse to remove “traces” but what are we doing here, really?
Each one of us contributes something, a pebble, and like Thomas said if we go (whatever righteous motive) and remove “our” pebble, there would be holes… maybe an avalanche… that pebble we put there is part of, making the whole now, so (to me) more important than tagging our “discourse” with ownership seems the quality (in content and motivation) of what we share, where does it come from, what’s the aim? In despite the huge limitations of the medium I still feel we grow together… a bonfire, each one puts a stick, the warmth of the fire reaches us all, that’s sharing at its best for me. Sure some will bring rachitic little sticks, I bet somebody has a tank of gasoline ready, bet is you @afre. But there’s no point in trying to take back you long burnt log; just don’t put green wood in there or someone will get a mutex_spark right in the eye. Fire fire fire!!!
That doesn’t take that things should be crystal clear from pixls’ part
I can’t say if they are now 'cause I shamefully haven’t read the small print =)
