You are well aware that I answered your questions by posting them directly to your blog. As you have now chosen to remove my comments from your blog let me reply to certain issues you have raised:
You refer to Shedrup as a:
"supposedly Tibetan sounding name"
You knew before posting this that I have worked with the Tibet Foundation and with Dharma centres. Has it never occurred to you that I might be a Buddhist and that when one becomes a Buddhist one is given a Refuge name which you are then entitled to use.
Amongst your numerous postings in the Forum you make an issue of the fact that CH does not apparently speak or write Tibetan. If you think that Shedrup - in some transliterations spelt Shedrub but having the same meaning - is only "supposedly Tibetan" I have to ask you whether you can read and write Tibetan? Even if you can't with all your knowledge I would have expected you to be aware that the name - in both spellings - is a fairly common name in Tibetan Buddhism.
As you clearly don't know that and don't trust anything I say I suggest you look at [www.diamondway-buddhism.org
] which gives a very long list of Dharma / Refuge names with their translations - translations that you clearly need.
As for your questions regarding the meta tags why on earth do you ask?
"Does this refer to Chris Famer's website business? Which may be found at: [www.shedrup.ngaro.co.uk]"
Of course it refers to that. You seem to imply that you have uncovered some great mystery when all you've done is read the source code of the page - something that anyone can do as every modern browser allows them to do so.
To anyone but you it would be quite clear that it refers to my development website. Why do you find that strange? Wouldn't you find it stranger if I was hiding my identity instead of leaving a clear trail that points to me. If I had anything to hide I can assure you I could have legitimately hidden my details on the website and with the domain registrars but I've left them completely in the open.
I have explained my use of the name Shedrup and the reference to my development website appears in the code of many websites I've produced not just Tibetan Way. Unlike everyone on the Forum - with the honourable exception of yourself - I have no problem with people knowing who I am. If people visit the Shedrup website and then wish to work with me then they rapidly discover that my name is Chris Farmer and if they ask about the Shedrup bit I explain it to them. Sometimes that even leads those people to take an interest in what is happening in Tibet - something that I would have thought you of all people would be happy about.
