I don't use any profanity and it's merely facts and my opinion of DirecTV. Nothing more and that's all.

If you don't want to read it then don't use the link. Plain and simple.

Re: DirecTV Sucks and Why

Hi Bob: We have a policy of requiring posters who provide links to

a) explain the link at least a little (even though it's often obvious from context),

and

b) affirmatively designate that the link is work and family safe (usually shown as "wfs" or "w/fs") or not (usually shown as "nwfs").

Note that it is NOT required that you only post "safe" links . . . only that you designate them as safe, or not.

We cut folks some slack, especially newbies like yourself (and your post does minimally meet the requirements of (a), so it's mostly good).

I think people might legitimately wonder (given the topic) whether the link was going to contain profanity (*especially* if they had any prior experience with DirectTV ).

Repeated violators of these rules get their links deleted, first with explanations, then without, then the whole post gets deleted.

Sorry about that Dave. All rules noted and will be complied.

Thank you very much for pointing this out to me. It makes perfect sense.

No TV for 8 years.
Prefer reading.
Just my two cents.

PS. Microwave left about 6 months ago.
PPS. Conventional bed left a month ago, Japanese futon on floor.
PPPS. Now if I can just finish the Cave, I'll be set.

If you'll do zazen with me Jay, I'll pay for 1/2 the rent of the cave.

Now that is the best offer I've had. I do sit, but not on a regular basis.
Have been to the ZMM (http://www.mro.org/zmm/index.php) W/F/S, almost came out to the Mt Shasta Monastery, but I think I came back to reality. I have friends at some great Monastery's around the country. When I do sit, there is a great little Zen Tempe in Pittsburgh, http://www.prairiewindzen.org/zcp/index.htm W/F/S.

I will be out for Level 2 Cert in Jan, you around??

Jay
