No one in the Adult forum is "polluting" or "corrupting" anyone--be they 16 or 60. If a 16-year-old has managed to get into the forum, it is because they either got permission or they hacked into it. They are there BY CHOICE and they read the material BY CHOICE. It would be quite a different matter if that material was posted in the public forums. Besides, what if you're underage and you WRITE that kind of poetry? Does that mean you can't post it because you are under 18 and can't get into the Adult forum?

Elizabeth, I know you are somewhat older than 15, and I also know your situation for being in Adult. We have talked, remember? I am not the enemy - no one is...I am sorry if I have offended you...I know you are far wiser than your years...I just get a little "exhausted" having to explain myself to a 15 year old who feels they should have "liberty" of Adult material...kids today, have it rough enough without having to be exposed anymore than they already are....I am sorry you don't agree. That's ok....I do admit to being somewhat "old-fashioned", but I am proud of the fact that I have some morals and standards, even though that's not the "fashionable" way to live nowadays.

Sorry, this should not have been posted. It was a bad judgment call on my part.

Indeed, Sys you are quite correct, my intent was to scare people with an exaggerated reality.

pFF, I do indeed consider you a friend reagrdless of differences in opinion.

Ok, Ok, everyone back into their corners!

Why don't we give a group hug, forgive and let the past be exactly that. We might want to consider not using this issue as a way to make new enemies!!!

Can't we all just get along!!!

I rest my case...the only people who are upset with me are those who are underage - - go figure!

*** Elizabeth, I thought you were my friend - you showed an honest desire to share your erotic poetry, I, at the time we had spoken (you & I) was quite new to the adult forum myself - and yes, I was not sure if the rules were flexibile or not. That is why I directed you to ask PDV - I knew she would make a call on it according to what the rules allowed. AND she did...so why are you throwing that out as a slam to me? I understand now it doesn't always pay to be nice to people...or try to help.

PoetFemmeFatale~ I didn't mean that as a slam to you. I posted the email portion before I had even seen your post and it wasn't meant in a rude manner. All I was trying to point out was that some people who don't have access to Adult don't really need the password, as they can simply head to the main site, but I have said that many times already so I'll quit stating it. With the email part, I was just trying to say that there are underage people in there because they have been granted access and are not sneaking in. I am truly sorry to have offended or hurt you. Friends?

To Elizabeth and all others in this boxing match...


I agree with Chris finally - we should all just hug and be done with this....I am wore out and would rather be putting this time and energy into some good poetry writing !! (whew!) I think all of us need to just collapse across our beds and sing the National Anthem !! LMAO Dream has already said his peace....and his apologies....the shock of the whole thing is over, so let's all just be nice and count to 10 or 20, ok? Good suggestion Chris !! I don't want to lose any friends over this anymore than anyone else does....Passions is solely alive because of the friendships that are there.....we are family....let's remember that. We all have uniquely different ideas and beliefs - but nonetheless, we can still HUG and KISS alot , ok?

***** BIG HUGS and BIG KISSES to all !!!!

Elizabeth, we are friends...you didn't have to delete your views...you have the right to speak just as anyone else. But thank you for your comments of apology - I appreciate that. I too apologize if I have offended you...BIG HUGS 2 U !

Hopefully this will be the last post, but if anyone has taken ANY time to read ALL of the above, well, you've just witnessed a "real family" in action.

Kudos to all of you for your opinions, your apologies, and your overall willingness to put it behind you, and get along with each other.

Now, everyone into the kitchen for milk and cookies.

pFF- I didn't take your post as an insult, I'm sorry it seemed that way. Nor was I bragging, or saying that you shouldn't have an opinion. But seeing how I posted a topic on the prose in question, i wanted to read it first.

I too, agree with Chris, but first I MUST say one thing, and I am sorry if this offends anyone further- "Unfortunately, it's the parents' fault for not caring enough about their children to raise them with morals and standards...." This is what you said regarding today's parenting. Sadly in more than a fwe cases, this is true. However, in others, parents have tried to bring their children up with morals, or at least what I see you definition of them being. But Many parents raise their children with morals-they just might not be the same morals you have, and you might disagree with them, but still they are morals.

Most often though, the parents can't really do anything to change their kids decisions if they run wild...some kids will behave, (although I don't consider my access to reading material such as this "misbehaving"), and others will do what they want, regardless.

I hope I haven't offended you too much, and also wish for peace...I could be replying to poetry right now.

Thinking is just what a great many people think they are doing when they are merely rearranging their predjudices.
