It's always a sad loss when one of the poetic chairs at our table here at Passions is vacated, but even more so when it is out of misunderstanding. There are, of course, several viewpoints here, and a fine line to be drawn in any case. It would be a job of great magntude to operate a site like this for writers! Writing is a fine art, but it does involve individual opinions, and as we all know, it is rare to get everyone to agree. But there is a wide audience that the writers here sometimes forget about whilst being involved in the actual art. There are children looking on, and also people of many backgrounds, and some guidelines really do need to be in place for us all to function together. All in all, I think we agree that the job is tremendous, and Ron has given us the space to express ourselves liberally. I do agree with Casey, in that if someone does choose to leave, we could exercise our manners, for no matter why the reason, that writer was a part of our family for a chosen while.
So, in your journeys, I hope you find what you are looking for, and God bless...
