Mild mannered Zen practitioners in zen forums.
My observation is that mild mannered zen practitioners in zen forums like their virtue so much. They seem to impost mild manneredness in the internet like them. Anything that differ from that norm is not acceptable to them. I suspect they are the same as religious people. They cannot tolerate differing attitude and also opinions. They seem to think their views are absolute.
