I think people who do this, end up still not getting what they want, they get sympathy replies, and advice. But good advice from more knowledgable members.
Yeah, begging, its a turn off, of course it is. I suppose its hard when members first get here, no one replies, it's happened to us all. I think you get as much as you give.
and a lot of the time, those who complain, have more origionating threads than replies made to others. thats where i get impatient sometimes. even when people do know the 3 posts to every one, people dont care. we all post and run sometimes, busy lives etc, but i know when i do, i makesure the next time i come back i reply to much more than 3 poems. but we can't all reply to everyone, as we know.
some people I think, just dont take time to get a feel of the place, get to know people. they jump in too quick, have high expectations, feel people are obliged to read and reply to their poems.
I can understand that maybe some of these people don't, are excited about being posted and are hungry for critiqing etc. but as we know, it doesn't work like that.
On a happier note, there are loads of us who do love reading eachothers work. I love adding otherspieces to my library, and damn, how much inspiration do ya get form other peoples words.
thats my view. if it doesn't make sense, it's because i have the worlds most excrutiating stomach cramps, i think i've got food poisoning. and this has taken my mind off it.
And, its my first day back at college tomorrow, andidont want to miss it, but i cantstand up!
Instant karma's gonna get you.
