Exactly there are alternative forums here. So why make a thread disregarding entire areas of explanation when its apparently important enough to comprise its own forum? And to say that the general forum should be COMPLETELY free of any philsophical thought regarding DP is ridiculous. Topics directly relating to the spiritual or philsophical ideas and DP should go on either thats life or spirituality, however people will interpret their experiences differently and we should allow that.
This board, in one incarnation or another has been in existence since @1987. These arguments about what's relevant and irrelevant in the main forum have gone on just as long.
James was kind enough to set up many separate forums as some people, as you note by andy's post, don't want "X", "Y", etc. in the MAIN forum. Posts DO get lost that way. It was the general consensus that things be divvied up.
Don't understand the problem here. This is a free site, but it also belongs to James and Sarah. Be thankful this is here in the first place.
You can't please anyone all of the time. SIGH, SIGH, SIGH
