One day Yao-shan Wei-yen (750-834), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an master, was asked by the host of the monastery to give his sermon to the assembly who for a long while was expecting his teaching. Yao-shan said: "Strike the bell."

It is my observation that Zen Forums are basically different. We may say that one have more quality than others that have quantity. I think it can be seen in the quality of topics and the quality of participants.
I think the quality of topics which is related to zen shows the quality of the Zen Forum and the quality of posts from members. And some zen forums seems just talk about trivial things and sometimes it is vague if they are related to zen which indicate the quantity but it is hard to discern for its quality since most members like to posts long posts as if zen is the more you talk the more it is zen.
So what do you think? Is this Zen Forum more on quality or more on quantity?
