Please do not resort to sensationalist reporting

by Andre, Port Elizabeth, South Africa, The Buddhist Channel, Nov 10, 2006

I am a great fan of your website, in fact it is my homepage most of the time.
I also like your new layout and presentation. One issue that does concern me somewhat is my perception (and maybe I am wrong in this) that you are starting to present some of the stories in a very sensational manner.

Take as example the current article on the Theravada / Thailand succession dispute where you say that things have turned "unholy". Given the people involved I believe this to be quite inappropriate language.

I could mention other instances. I would hate to see the impeccable standards that you have maintained thus far being traded for some cheap newspaper tricks. Please keep up the good work, and may the Buddhas bless your efforts.
