Ron Carnell was the brilliant and charming founder of the poetry sites listed below. With his recent passing, we are respecting his wishes to transition these websites to a new home. As discussed with Ron, these sites will be continued in a 'read-only' incarnation to preserve his exceptional legacy, and allow people to remember and appreciate the heart and soul that Ron, the poets and the readers poured into these sites for over 22 years. With Ron’s existing hosting provider discontinuing their hosting services shortly, it is now time to make this move.

We could not let these treasures 'disappear'.


netpoets.com Passions in Poetry - the main site

This site is now back online, with a majority of the content. A rollout of the remaining content areas within the site will be done with future incremental releases.


100-poems.com Countdown of the favorite poems from NetPoets

This site is now back online.


piptalk.com Poetry Forums - the PiPTalk 'blue pages'

Sadly, this transition marks the end of a very special era. Since the forums will become 'read-only', there will be no ability to Post or Reply, and with no User Logins, only the 'public' forums can be available for future viewing. This will take several weeks before it is back online due to the vast number of posts and threads throughout the various forums and archives.

NOTE: With this transition, Ron's 'netpoets' email addresses will cease to function.
I therefore created a new email address netpoets@gmail.com for the web sites - thanks Rob
