Yeah, I rarely ever go back over stuff I write. Unless it's poetry that is. Nice of you to point out.

I've said it once and i'll say it again. We did agree to the guidlines in the policy agreement. If we want to submit something that falls outside of those guidlines than we can go somewhere else.

I was merely voicing my opinion the topic at hand. The topic being, Censoring Dark Poetry. I was thinking of "dark poetry" in my own terms. I should have recognized the forum in contrast with the what the administration has laid out for the site.

It's all good.

These are some of poems of Bill Shields; a Vietnam veteran.  They are intense and brutal.  They pull no punches, and under the PIP guidelines, are unpostable.  However he has four books published; Just because you may not be able to post a graphic poem here, is does not mean there is not a venue for it.  

As for not sharing certain subject matter with children: not all artwork is meant for children.  Movies are often criticized for being gratuitously violent.  The films that receive the most flack are the ones that use violence as a reflection of our culture and to show the futility of it.  A Clockwork Orange is one the most criticized films in history for being extremely violent.  It is, but only for the first 30 minutes, the rest of the film asks the question: “Can criminals be rehabilitated?”      

There is a Mature Content forum.  I suggest moving questionable poems there for debate.

We see your point.  It just needs to be placed in the proper forum.
