My comments are based on my readings of many other posts on this thread and many others contained on this site, and not necessarily mine. As i had no prior knowledge on this subject untill i read the many posts and reply's, so to enrich my knowledge i have posted questions,

ok, I mean, that wasn't neciserily ranting at you or anything. I just don't see that here. the point is, this is a POETRY site. we come here to be ourselves and escape from those bonds. right? It took me a while to find people here who I could lean on, but there are people here who care a lot more than you think they do. but its not a conspiracy (and these words are coming from my mouth of all people)

And the angel said unto me, "These are the cries of the carrots, the cries of the carrots!"

People are going to read and respond to whom they want to and there is nothing wrong with that.

It has been my experience that the more one replies to other people's poems, the more replies they will receive.

So, if any of you desire more replies to your poems, start replying more to other people's poems and then you will be included, at least somewhat, into their "clique."

I canít disagree with this at all, but donít you find it strange that the quality of a poem isnít given a higher priority Ė after all this is a poetry forum.

I know what a claque is - a group of people paid to admire you. And a click? In Scotland it's the sudden meeting of your eyes with the alluring and deep eyes of a member of the opposite sex just before closing time.

Is a "clique-claque" then a euphonism for a lady of the evening?

No, no that's a claque-click. As in:

'How many clicks can a claque-clique click,
if a clique or claque could click quick....'

A cliqeing we will go, a cliqueing we will go, Hi_ho a claqueo, a cliquing we will go...
(or is that a claquing we will go?)
Is one who claques a claquer or a claquerer? or one who cliques a cliquer or a cliquerer?

A cliqueur or a cliquatreuse,

a claquer or a claquerelle.

Where's your classical education? As for 'claqueo', everyone knows that's a table football game specially adapted for amputees. Quite frankly I hadn't expected such a depth of ignorance here. You'll be telling me you don't know the meaning of craw, next.

na rionnagan a' dearrsadh san uisge
na rionnagan a dearrsadh na mo chridhe
an Cuan Sgith mar sgathan dorch
's do phog mu dheireadh
air mo ghruiadh fhathast
balbh, fuar, fad air falbh
mar seann ghealach
a' cuimhneachadh air acarsaid eile.


Bet I can win the Scottish word contest.

How about this one, 'Mawkit'?

Lol I wasn't trying to contend with you,  I just thought we should get away from those french words: clique and claque, claqueresse.

What did you say up there?  

Hopefully not something mawkit-mannered!
