OH Hoot! your advise is well taken and to heart. But the replies we were getting from someone who had posted no poetry for others to critique were not given with friendliness in mind.. but only rudeness that I could see. He said the same thing to several of the poets.. not just me. Der Keit will tell you..
I am generally a calm and unaggressive adversary, but when you slice with words I will take up my sword also.

Your advise is welcomed... always!

Aside from that, Ruth - We know who you are... And we love ya!

Your critiques are constructive - not destructive.

Also, you don't deride others for hiding their identities and then avoid divulging your own.....

Hi, I figured that since I feel like a part of this family (and I thank you all for that) that I am going to put in my two cents. Lucie I have read your poetry and you have every right to be proud of the works you have penned because they are very well done and I don't mean just mechanically but the spirit of them shines thru as well. As far as critic is concerned I don't know anything about him/her and have never seen any of his/her works posted so all I can say is since he/she can't take the heat they need to stay out of the kitchen. Just consider the source and try to remember how insignicant his/her opinion is if they don't have the guts to post their own work. All of us take a chance when we post something. My first one scared me to death cuz I was petrified of being trashed. What I found instead were very caring and supportive people with a sense of humur and a sense of honor. Critic obviously has no character and that's sad. What a horrible way to have live when you can't see the beauty in the written word no matter how short or long it may be or how it is written. We all write from the heart in form or another and critic's is without beauty. Anyway I'm gettin' off my pulpit now. Just wanted to talk I guess LOL

I agree with everyone else, we are all behind you. I have never seen any of Critic's work either and I do not know anything about him or her eiter. All I know is it is really a shame when someone like that has the nerve to judge this great site without even checking it out. You guys love to have fun and joke around and I think that is great and if Critic doesn't understand the idea of friends than that is his/her lost. Before I found this place I wrote poetry but had no one to share it with. I am so happy I found this place because not only do I have a place to have my poetry posted but I get to read all these great poets works as well. I can only hope to be as great as all you guys one day. You guys are so great because you give constructive criticism but you also joke around, you really are like a big family. Thanks again. And Lucie, you have every right and more to do what you did. I'm done now .

All I can say is I wouldn't have been able to be so gentle and still drive the point home as well as you have here. Good job.
