In an effort to encourage commentors to “live the higher order”, which almost everyone in the past has done, this blog site is adopting the principles of “Buddhist Right Speech“:
Buddha explained right speech as follows: 1. to abstain from false speech, expecially not to tell deliberate lies and not to speak deceitfully, 2. to abstain from slanderous speech and not use words maliciously against others, 3. to abstain from harsh words that offend or hurt others, and 4. to abstain from idle chatter that lacks purpose of depth.
According to Alex McGilvery:
Right Speech is a tool for deciding if a comment is useful to the conversation. Thus, a comment needs to be true, it needs to not be abusive and divisive, and it needs to move the conversation forward.
I greatly enjoy receiving comments, so please don’t take this as criticism. Anyone is free to disagree with anything, just don’t call me “stupid.”
