Well, it appears this thread has generated a lot of comments through the day since I first saw it this morning. I think thatís bound to happen when volunteers are publicly chastised for attempting to do their job.  The only additional comment I wanted to add was regarding the following quote:

all that the so called ''administrators'' prove is that they are very good yes men and women

To that, I say the following:

-Am I tired of implications of cliques and the like?  YES

-Do I wish that people would read and abide by the simple guidelines we request? YES

-Am I tired of spending 2 hours each morning reading and evaluating problem posts of varying degrees instead of reading and responding to actual poetry? YES

-Do I wish we had less problem posts to evaluate daily? YES

-Am I tired of defending the decisions we make when each decision has been taken seriously and reviewed in full by a good cross-section of moderators? YES

-Am I proud of the job that the moderators perform at this site?  YES

-Will I keep doing this for another 4 years anyway?  YES


So ... I guess I'm a YES woman in that sense.  Beyond that, the quote above couldnít be further from the mark.

Well, if nothing else, if one is feeling rather lonely, this is one sure-fired way of getting email.

Become a moderator - Get email! Woohoo Great slogan!

And Kamla, you can critique me on your deathbed if you want. Considering our ages, it's more likely to be mine though

or simply click on almost any pop up-- give them your email addy--and soon you will be awash in so many emails your only salvation will be to abandon ship and get a new address

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

Cliques? there everywhere, my cat and dog are in a clique. They talk behind my back and make funny faces.  

Okay really, who is in a clique?

Hey you want to hear something sad, it will make you feel better! the only email I got today was from ron and that was sending my password!

Why is it that i have had emails stating that Severn has always been Ron's little pet...and that what i have said is the truth?...and who did this come from.. an ex admin/moderator..who has seen it first hand...that was why the person in question left....amin?moderators cannot stand criticsm....if they could i would not have asingle reply to this post..but loh and behold ...all of them come out to suck up to the boss....severn..if you critique any of my future work harshly i shall take it as a vendetta..not that you ever would....but two can play at that game and it will be open season on any of your futre work....

End of story i made my point even if some of you refuese to face up to your won failings...

Phil, it isn't necessary to threaten anyone on here.

If what both of you would like are only "nice" replies or those kind of critiques ( which are not really helpful for growth) why not just uncheck the yes box or box (I don't remember which it is)and then all replies will be from those who enjoy your words and say is as easy as that.

and I am not a moderator nor connected to any...just trying to tell you the easy way to be assured of no "hurtful words" or negative interpretations towards someone or their poetry.

Maureen why do you feel you have the right to say anything on any subject i have raised?...
i am not talking to kindly keep your yes woman thoughts to yourself....

and as far as i am concerned bring on the harshest of critiques to my work....''water off a ducks back'' as the real English speaking and motherland of the true english language can have all of your degrees from anywhere on this earth..but only one realy and truely counts....England the home of the greatest writers EVER....

Goldenrose.  Maureen has the right to make comments on any open thread on these boards - because she's a member here - just like you.  Please respect our members' rights and their abilities.  We proudly host a collection of FINE writers from ALL corners of our spherical world.

This issue has now gone on long enough - We're going in redundant circles now, and casting stones for no productive purpose.

This does not support our tenets of respect and tolerance, does it?  Let's get on to the task of writing some great poetry, shall we?
Goldenrose will be notified of replies
