Unfortunately, rumors have floated my way which implicate certain individuals in a conspiracy to get other PIP member to sort of "boycott" other poets.

As was told to me by a few individuals they have been encouraged to not read or comment on the poems of two or three poets here, as well as an attempt to rally support AGAINST our dear host Ron.

It sickens me to think that there could be some truth to these rumors, and it really would piss me off if they are true.

Speak up folks, is there childish crap like this really going on?

I should sincerely hope not!

A person's merit should be judged by their own words, so perhaps rumor, hearsay if you will, should not always be believed.

Hmmm, haven't heard anything of this, but if it's true, have no fear Ron (like you really do *grins*), for the Partners in Crime will always side with you. As long as we prowl the web, evil has no chance.

We could only hope that this is not going on around here, but you never know the truth.. I don't know.. I haven't heard anything and I think that Ron is the greatest.. For his poet and having a place here for us poets to read other poetry and to respond to post.. I thought that the childishness was all gone from here..

love,
Lady

I'm sincerely hoping that this is just foolishness and not for real. I've pretty much left another place because of all the petty going's on...

THIS place is too special for nonsense like that.

Perhaps these poets in question will leave, for if such talk is truly circulating, then they do not belong here. Ron, I think it's safe to say we all appreciate you.

I hope you're right JP, that this is just foolish rumors and not true. I haven't heard of any of this at all, until reading this post just now. If in fact, this deception is going on, then I will be very dissapointed...to say the least. Such a pity.

I have heard the same rumors. I ignored them because it's childish. If it has happened or is happening, I pity the ones that are boycotting...for they are the ones who will miss out.

A boycott can only be effective if people know that itís taking place, as the reality so far seems to point to the fact that no-one knows, or has noticed anything apart from rumor I say let the children play their games.
In fact I suggest that if they arenít boycotting my rambles already ( I hope they are ) they start now, because anyone with that low an intelligence hasnít a feline in Hades chance of understanding some of the grown up big words I use, and even less chance of giving a constructive or meaningful reply.

If this is going on, then how completely childish..once again, I think of junior high in how immature this is. (thats a place I'm glad to leave, people!). I sure hope there's no truth to this..
