I got you here under false pretenses but if you did sneak a peek, answer with a tiny little yes....it's a survey to find out how many people actually read poems with titles of "please read"

and don't blame me, blame Christopher, it was he who brought it up..

HUGS all

ROFG yep, that's giggling...

ok will give you a boost also, but you get a yes and a no for your answer, depends on how much time I have...I do understand when someone needs to have a poem read and commented to.....although as I come to know this site, I think it could be better used if people would use all the facilities. The critical analysis site is not used enough, and could really help out new poets or someone who is not sure of a poem.
A lot of people write just to clear their head or their heart, and after its written, its nice to have someone reply, but that wasnt' the pupose of the writing. Others are new at poetry and really are not sure of themselves, and are asking with their "please read"....is this ok? So yes, I do try to read the ones who ask, because they need it, but no, can't read them all, there are just too many...

lol how's that for waffling for you....and sigh, speaking of waffling, I sure miss a certain feathered creature, am still trying to get him over here....last conversation peaked his interest, but he has been too busy

oh yeah, and it was the "belly important" that made me read this more than the "please read" ROFG

I agree with lloveit that critical analysis isn't used enough.....and for that reason I don't post there all that often, because in the few times i've posted there, I've gotten only one or 2 replies. Although I will say Brad is a very consientous moderstor as every entry I've read has a reply from him. (thanks Brad)

I also try to read poems by pople who want them read, as too many of my "Please Read" poems are ignored. However just because there aren't many replies doesn't mean it hasn't been read, just that it hasn't been replied to for one reason or another.

JTF: ROFL...are you suggesting that I'm too energetic?....ROFLMAO

HUSG

Iloveit: Bet you thought it was a funny poem didn't you...lol...thanks for the feedback...I do read in the Critical forum but don't know enough about poetry to suggest anything so tend not to comment, roll on Nan's workshop..

HUSG

Systematic Decay: I do try to read most of the poems in here whatever the title but have to admit it is the title that usually draws me in and I try to go back to the start of Open as well to pick up any poems that I missed and I know the Moderators do...

I must admit this is the first time I ever included a 'please read'..so will be interesting to see what anyone else has to say on the subject...

Thanks for looking

HUGS

The title is what drew me also Rainbow...the please read coming from the poet I know you to be....one of my favorites I might add though did catch my eye.....I like most try to read new poets posts whether or not they use the please read phrase.

Yes, I read ... but only because it was you, and you are not known to post "please reads" unless they need to be read ... had I not recognized the name, I would have kept on scrolling ...

RG,
I always your poetry whether it has a Please Read or not just cuz you are the author. I may not always post a reply but I do read just about everything every day. Just ask my kid.. he's always sniveling cuz I'm on the computer readin' poetry and he doesn't get much time to use it. Oh well he'll get over it eh?

OK, I must admit, your TITLE was the draw! Quite clever. I'm one for good titles. When someone begs one to read, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. However, if they include "critique" or "comment", then chances are, I'll check into it.

However, again, the TITLE was the grabber. I was wondering if this belonged in Announcements where someone was either expecting, or getting permission for insertion of a ring in a belly button...

there y'go!

I don't really know how to answer this one. Sometimes I do read them cause of the please read, and sometimes I don't. Here's a new one, why don't we try reverse psychology and say Please Don't Read This! You know that would be the killer and we would have to look! lol

Rainbow your (belly important) is what got me. I thought at first you mispelled it, but then I knew you couldn't have, it had to be intentional. You got me!
