Just wanted to bring it to the attention of the author that his link to the Nirvana Sutra at right is outdated. That site moved to: www.nirvanasutra.net

The argument that people can join Buddhism for the "wrong" reasons is itself misguided. That's like saying you can only like classical music if you understand its origins, history, scales, etc.

People follow what they like, and they should be free to explore and experiment without judgement from others.

While I don't disagree with your views about "self" in Buddhism, you must acknowledge that this is not "self" as commonly understood in English: "a person's essential being that distinguishes him from others." The essential being component is there, but not the individualistic part. Buddha Nature seems to be the same for everyone.
