I also agree that serious poets take their work seriously ...
I guess that means that all other work may not be serious?
I, for one, believe giving anyone that cares to read my work a smile serious work.
Nothing here was said against any forum of writing except a possible place, time, and theme for the lighter side to all the seriousness amongst the pages.
You have a point, there are poets who would not take to lightly to such responses to their work. Thats why a suggestion was made for the possibility of a place for those who might, a "smiling" minority, if you will.
Either way, a good suggestion, both for and against ...
but everyone should have a chance to smile, if and when they may want too.
One's outlook can be another's expression.
