in reply to The Egoless Monk

Personally, I'd just settle for the "Very Polite Monk", as, at the end of the day, the two would be almost indistinguishable...
I've no problems with people having huge egos; Just with them attempting to force that ego upon me. Politeness and etiquette are wonderful ways of having your cake and eating it (having a huge ego, but seeming like a meek and enlightened person).
Most monks, I think, seem to know that, which is why PM has been such a closely knit community.. The odd few flare ups have mainly been because people are, well, human.. Nobody can be perfect all the time.. But at least most try.. Which is as much, I think, as anyone can hope for.
If there were only a regex one could use to filter out impolite posts...
