As one of the list administrators,  I do not agree that this
discussion has to be closed. Even though I will not participate in the
discussion, considering that there are quite a few members who follow
Kanchi maTha, it is fair to let them engage in constructive
discussion. It is a matter very important to them and probably to an
extent it is  a make or break deal.

Those who wish to avoid it can stay silent and simply delete the
messages.  Right from the day I started, Advaita-l has developed a
reputation of being a rude list. But I think under your excellent
leadership  it has changed a lot.  I think we should target those post
messages that are rude and moderate them (especially our list allows
that now).  That way we can have more light than heat.

My 2c.
