SERENITY!   You CERTAINLY will pay for that one, missy! ROTFL!    

Severn,
Yes, but why waste time on judging people or not speaking our minds. Okay, so everyone else can whine and say.."oohh..we're all humans!Forgive us..oh please even though we don't choose to try and change"    

Well the fact is that I think even saying "Well we're only human." is overused and particularly used to make excuses so we can be as much of a part of this seemingly empty, self involved, mickey mouse race of a society (wherever you happen to live). It is an excuse not to try and change and grow out of what the rest of the world already expects out of humans these days. I don't always succeed, but I do try every day to grow beyond the meager expectations of an increasingly shallow world of society. I'm not even sure "society" is the word I am looking for at this point to describe the whole of an attitude.
*sigh* I hope I'm making some sense.

All said, I think the "But, we're only human" saying is a lazy excuse for a hell of a lot of people who can't be bothered to surpass such expectations.  Perhaps it didn't use to be, but now it is.

Well, the Western world anyway. And of course it is. People find excuses so that the 'natural' state of not being perfect doesn't look quite so bad, I reckon. I judge - I judge all the time. It's a form of assessment, and a reaffirmation of my identity. We all do it. And whoever says they don't is a flat out liar. I guess the thing is to recognise it and adjust accordingly.

More of my five cents. (Has to be 5 - can't get two cents here heh).

I have read the responses to this thread with interest and I can't say I've noticed any sarcasm or rumours going on in any of the forums, I have to say that I am not here regularly and there are probably as many reasons for being part of Passions as there are people using it, if someone was to be disrespectful or unkind to me on here I don't think it would affect me or the people I love very much, after all we all have a choice each computer is equiped with an off button and we can all choose to take on board or ignore comments that we feel are hurtful or insulting. The problem with text sometimes is that we just get the words and not the feelings behind them, this too can cause misunderstanding. Just my feelings on something that it is obvious people are passionate about.

Regards to you all,
(getting off my soap box)
Olias.

May I personally say if I EVER have a question or concern I would definitely address it in a personal e-mail, I feel my replies have always been strictly on the poem per say at least I strive for them to be that way.  That's what personal e-mails are for but from now on I'm not really corresponding with other poets on a personal level, I have too much going in my own life to worry or be concerned with anything anyone is doing....let them do what they wish!  My poetry is written for one reason, to display my love for nature, my romantic side   and well, the different forms of poetry I have come to study and love. I'm not perfect either and sure I've wondered but I don't make an issue of it in the forum, if I have someone take me to task for it.amen.

I know I'm all late on this, but I just thought I'd throw in my two scents.    

The problem is people take all of this too seriously. Or else they get so bored that they start things just to spice things up.  I'm in high school and I know some freshmen better behaved than that. I mean how hard is it to just keep your mouth shut? *sighs* And the "funny"/"stupid" thing is that you get the people who gossip complain about other people who run their mouth. It's sad really. Oh well, I don't let it bother me. I couldn't care less. I know it bothers you SEA, but you shouldn't worry about them. The fustration isn't worth it. Glad you let that all out. *hugs*

Oh, and I may have my opinions and judgements, but I can honestly say that whenever someone has stabbed me in the back with rumors or lies and then later needed help...not necessarily from me..but just needed help...I have been there. I may not be the best person, whatever that is, but I've almost done whatever I could to help whether friend or foe. And if that doesn't count for something, then somebody tell me what does.  

Thanks

WooHoo! *dances a happy little jig*

Umm... sorry...this is what happens when they give me chocolate before bed.

I wish I had "discovered" this forum sooner.  I guess I will reserve my comments for another time

wow.......is all I can say after reading all of this. I never notice anything going on...I must not pay good enough attention. I delight in the poetry writing and reading end of this site...so I guess I miss out on  much of whatever the

I am sorry SEA  if something has happened to upset you or any others on here. Many things can be misinterpreted in the English language but being hurtful is not acceptable. I learned this the hard way  once on here and  only look for the good  in each on here.
((huggssssss)) and I didn't mean to bring this forward, but I was  sitting  quietly reading in the Alley and noticed you...

I don't blame you for being upset. It sounds like bored people with small minds and big mouths starting trouble.
Why others want to nit-pick a poem apart and try to turn things into Paytons Place, is beyond me.
You keep writing from your heart, and just ignore small minded bored people.

Hugs,
Deb
