  One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master... continue...

"Answers that have NOTHING to do with the question, especially questions from beginners."

some posts being removed could appear as if maybe the post being responded to was posted by a "beginner", and it could appear as if' it's  is an answer that had "NOTHING  to do with the question", though could've been responding to the question, just not the way that maybe was 'expected' a question to be responded to

when breezing the leaves fall, is it judged as if right or wrong ?

I don't know if you noticed, but many beginners or newcomers abandoned the forum after posting 1 or 2 questions, because of replies that are simply incoherent nonsense. It's been going on for too long so I am monitoring and deleting those I deemed/"judged" to be such. There are simply way too many "zen" replies that serve no purpose to the original question posted. I still let those anecdotal fun fly in threads started by the old-timers, but NOT in threads posted by someone who is seeking serious answers.

You see, this is EXACTLY the kind of nonsense I am talking about.
