Proposal for talkpage-restrictions for Robert Walker[edit]

I've made a concrete proposal for talkpage-restrictions for Robert Walker: Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Proposal: max 1,500 bytes a day for Robert Walker. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:54, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Result was no outcome and I've developed some Work arounds for lengthy talk page comments which should help in the future. Robert Walker (talk) 19:58, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 12 September 2015[edit]

Section 5.3 on Buddhism has a grammatical error in the sentence: "In the Buddhist tradition, karma refers to actions drive by intention...". I believe the word "drive" was meant to be "driven". The current use of "drive by" would only make sense in something like a "drive by shooting" or similar. Unless I'm mistaken, there is no such thing as a "drive by intention".

Yes check.svg Done - that is exactly what the next word (Cetanā) means - thanks for pointing that out

Cause and effect, causality[edit]

Talking about "causality" and "cause and effect" about ancient philosophies is a serious mistake. I wish I was knowledgeable enough to do the necessary editing, for now all I can say is that it's absurd, and casts doubt about the article. I ignore the Eastern equivalents, but some words that wouldn't be anachronic are : fate, grace, cause (NOT cause and effect), worth, merit, destiny, reward, consequence...--84.97.206.198 (talk) 16:44, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. Thoughtfull observation. Not that I have a solution at the moment, but it's a good point to ponder. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 05:32, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
