Ok, here we go.....
I'm torn on this whole subject, and I have read as many of the replies as I could and I do feel that everyone, for the most part, has a valid point.
Why am I torn?
OK.... I think the "unbump" is a good idea for those who choose to abuse the "bump" feature.
What do I mean? Well, there are those who reply to every single reply that comes in on their post instead of waiting for at least a few before extending their thank you's. That was certainly annoying to me, as I'm sure it was to others.
HOWEVER, I am disappointed to see the feature removed as I for one liked it.
Why? Well, for several reasons.
I for one do not have the time being a working mom and a having a very SLOW server, to email everyone who replies to my poetry. Though, as I have been left with no other choice, I am forced to do so.
It was nice to be able to wait for several posts, as Marina stated, and then reply to fellow poets comments, saying thank you's and basically keeping in touch.
Yes, is there is A LOT of poetry that flows through open at a very rapid speed.
Just another thing I'm torn about.
On one hand, your poetry does drop out of site rather quickly.
But on the other hand, if we're bumping our own poetry back up, it's just shoving someone else's lower.
So, as for now, I'm still torn on the issue, though I am leaning towards having it back.
But that is only for my selfish reasons of having very limited time on my hands.
And I have to say this, I tried really hard to just keep my mouth shut.
But I found it amusing that a few members who are for the "unbump", have bumped their own posts more than one time, and at times, not even posting replies, just stating that they were bumping it.
And most of us who wish to see the feature back, are not one's that would "abuse" the feature.
I wonder why that is?
Ok, there are my two cents worth, ok, so maybe I gave three! hehe

left by those who got there first"
