Elizabeth - the main Passions site is a bit more "controlled" than are the forums. I review all of the comments, just as I do the poems, before they are posted. Mostly, I check to make sure the person commenting didn't reference someone by name, like a mutual friend (doesn't happen a lot, but it does happen frequently enough I have to be careful). Your comment will go up on the next update (which should be *real* soon).
Sunshine - If you didn't figure it out from the previous paragraph, we're talking about voting on the poems at the main Passions site. All of the several thousand poems have a "Vote" button in the Response Panel (at the foot of the poem) where you can vote and submit comments about the poem. It's not that much different than what we do in the forums. Except it doesn't happen instantly and it lasts a lot longer (I hesitate to say forever ). Every month (when I get a bit more caught up), we try to give the poet with the most votes a little something, just to show our support for their work. Truth is, though, the comments mean more to most of them than anything I can do for them! So -- like go vote for something!
