If Venkatesh (or for that matter any list member) continues this
fact-free blathering on subjects clearly not understood with imprecise and

Which he has been asked from day one. I understand that not everyone is
an accomplished scholar in shastras. That is not necessary to participate
in advaita-l. But we can safely demand that participants follow basic
norms of rational debate. This is not a private soapbox to spew out any
notion which might enter ones skull.

If we are not mature enough to control our own thoughts and speech its a
sign we shouldn't be involved in Advaita Vedanta at all. It is not anyone
elses job to babysit.
