I guess we're just getting too big. Too many pages, too many forums, and too much opportunity for important threads to be missed.

Please take the time to follow the links in these threads and learn about what may be the most blatant scam on the Internet:

I guess that depends on why you want to enter, Rosalind. If you read any of those articles, you realize that everyone who enters the contests at poetry.com becomes a Finalist. You could send them a page out of the dictionary (wouldn't even have to be an English one) and they'll agree to publish it. Then, of course, they'll charge you for it.
