Crow, this whole "mentorship" thing doesn't work on the internet. You see, there's no way I have of knowing whether or not you're just some burnout creep who peaked early in life and so turned to the internet to form his own cult of personality. You can talk yourself up all you want, but the fact of the matter is that nobody sane is going to listen, because while philosophical discussion/pedagogy can occur over the internet, truly spiritual teaching loses its significance when people are physically seperated. It's fine if we treat spiritual topics as subjects for philosophical debate, but a true spiritual relationship--in which there is a clear master-pupil dichotomy, and in which it might be OK to rebuke someone outright as if they broke some law--cannot exist on a fucking metal forum, of all places. So please, keep the interesting ideas coming, but drop the faux sensei attitude, and save it for your fucking son or something. This isn't your fucking dojo, you are not the fucking master, so drop the conceited fucking attitude.
Oh, and this "spring cleaning" bit: fallot is spot on, this is pure passive-aggression on your part. "Disagree with certain user => get banned" is hardly a sound modus operandi for a any forum, much less one based on freedom of expression. Oh well, I guess this place is overdue for the tyrannic stage in its life cycle. I'll come back after the Crow-ocracy invariably collapses.
