Welcome to FFI's forum.
This forum is
created for exchange of ideas. It is not for mindless babble of nonsense nor
for clashes of personalities. We are not interested to dig more ditches but
to build more bridges.
Our policy in
moderating this forum is least intervention. In other words we operate this
forum based on the Daoist philosophy of governing. The gist of this
philosophy is wu wei, or “do nothing”.
There is an order in the nature, but you
can’t put your finger on it. It simply cannot be measured or defined.
Nature does not have geometric figures and it has no specific shapes but
there is order beauty and harmony in it and it is perfect. Look at the
clouds, the trees, the mountains or the rivers and lakes and the stars. They
all have order but we simply cannot measure or describe it. This is Li
- organic pattern.
The Dao is the way nature operates. You
cannot find the controlling center of it, because there isn't any.
We humans are part
of the nature and our society is a natural evolution. Internet forums are
cyber societies and hence part of the nature too. Nature knows best how to
regulate itself. So we moderate this forum letting it evolve under its
natural impulses. We do not see human society as a factory were you have to
plan and control every aspect of the production but rather as a garden with
a life of its own, where all you have to do is assure that the trees and
plants are watered and occasionally pruned and weeded, and watch it grow on
Society is like an
individual. In fact we individuals are only a society of billions of cells.
There is no governing organism in our body. All cells know what to do and
there is harmony. This harmony is the natural way. It exists in everything.
Dao is the path of non intervention. By doing nothing you will accomplish
more than by doing a lot.
The rules or the
Dao of this forum are the natural rules governing any civilized
of the forum or its 10 commandments

Important: Please do not use your real name when joining. We are receiving requests from old members who were once muslim and said the darndest things, and now that they have left Islam they want their name removed or changed. Changing a name is easy, but if people have responded to your messages quoting you, your name shows also in their message and it becomes extremely difficult to change all references to your name. So please use a pseudonym. Even if today you are an assured and angry muslim, ten years from now you may be an enlightened apostate, and embarrassed about what you wrote.
