Two elements here in your post that I’d like to respond to.
The first is technological. Bulletin boards have differing “rules” for such things as posting, editing, avatars et al. Some of that is based purely on the construct of the framework while others are based on personal preferences of the owner, administrator, or manager. As David points out there is a time period for editing.
Second is a more yoga point, which you yourself make. That is the mindfulness of the author - be they originating a post or responding to one. What I have found is that very careful thought precedes my more mindful writings. In some cases I’ll compose in a text file then paste my text on the forum after editing. That process has refined my writing. You may also find, over time, that some posts or replies elicit very powerful emotional responses - defensiveness, indignation, anger - and of course on the path of yoga we are to observe and learn from that, hopefully without acting out or becoming reactive to the surge of feelings.[/quote]
Thanks for that tip about composing in a text file (or copy+save to notepad), as i’ve been authoring posts and then losing them when i hit post.Ithink i’ve timed out, then i sign back in and i get a blank white screen.(Also tried the back broswer button, afterwards and there’s sometimes nothing. )
Seems kinds obvious ,though in my haste to post after deliberating over how i’ll articulate myself i hit that button and ive binned it unwttingly there and then.
Good practice though.
