I thought this thread was long dead, looks like I was wrong.
And, I think everyone is missing the lesson here and there, at the original thread.
The ~grace~, patience and goodwill toward [everyone], that Ron has taught me by observing his behavior toward critisism on a personal level as well as of his efforts to publish a book for the pleasure of others, and even mananged to build in a way for them to profit financially from it....according to how much work, individually, they choose to do. If other poets put in a small percentage the effort Ron has on this book there is no doubt he'd need many more print runs.
Not sure why it seems to elude some. GRACE and HUMILITY and LOVE, (respect) and understanding, giving anyone a chance to redeem themselves if need be, if they want to, they remain a member of this family, forgiven, not forgotten, nor shunned.
Ron ~unwittingly~ set perfect examples of ways for me to behave because I certainly fall short many times.
Iíve read this several times but have to admit that Iím a little confused, are you agreeing with JPís comments in this thread or are you disagreeing with them? Perhaps youíre saying that JP shouldnít have posted his comments in the first place or maybe you think he has the right to freely post whatever he wants to post without the hindrance of anyone posting an opposing view.
Could you clarify?
