We have 3030 members now, who will be replaced?
Will it be me, will "Blondie" be the one erased?

We have 3030 members now, what will the forum do?
Will it crumble into pieces and all of us fall through?

Will they pick random names and click delete
or will they all meet and pick them in discrete.

We have 3030 members now, will we hold strong?
Or will this forum not be able to last very long

Like when a match burns out, it will never flame anew,
So I guess I better watch my back, or I will be through



*this is only a joke...please do not take anything I wrote seriously*

Cute poem, Blondie.  As we grow no one is deleted, except for those few that have been registered for a year and have not participated. No one is in danger!!

Spare me, don't erase please. when they erase you is it like in 1984 all records of your existence are wiped away.

I am calm now. nice poem.

Blondie, your melting, your melting, sinking lower lower, don't fade on us, please no, stay, staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay......... blip.

please feel free to delete my comments at anytime. But but time is tha abstract, there is only now. To prove my point you are reading this right now, and the next time you think about this concept it will also be now.....so now you know, i'm crazy...  

If a poem lives in passions and theres nobody to read it, does it rhyme. No it doesn't.... now thats another concept, I don't understand.

See you now.....

Interesting piece...I tend to look at this a little differently.
There may be 3000 members but it seems to me only about 200 are active...and only about 100 of that amount are very active.
Even the best poetry or the most popular poets receive about 20 to 30 responses...and some of those are their own responding back to the other poets.
Most poems receive only 2 to 10 responses so I would say that not to many out of 3000 are responding or active.  And in many cases the quality, in my opinion, is outstanding.  I can look at this from my perspective..I love to read poetry but my time is limited by other pursuits that are equally important to me.  In other words my lack of response doesn't always mean I don't like someones work..it could also be due to a lack of time.  I think we all set priorities and read our favorites first.  So in my opinion this web site will survive because there will probably always be about 100 poets that have the talent and the time to keep poetry alive and well.   James

Well, it looks like we'll survive here a while longer.  Blondie, you scared me the same way when I saw the title "No More Open 7" in the topic line ... yipes!  The comments above were quite an interesting read too ... thanks for the thought-provoking verse Blondie, well done.

Best wishes,
/Kit
