    There was a delet message beside my first message. I did that.
    I guess that was the not welcome sign from the regulars.
    As I said I do not care about the ratings, sadly I do care about being made to feel unwelcome in a place I thought I would be welcomed by mentors and friends.

    Poets are supposed to be intelligent and open minded. Here I have found children playing cruel games on one another and one or two solid poets and a friend.
    I wish I had found more of the latter.
    My aim was to improve my work and have some great discussions.
    I would have offered similar.

    I obviously need to find another site.
    Once I have, I will transfer my poetry.
    God speed to those who care for poetry.
    Have fun to those who just play games.
    With regrets

    Dear Gypsy
    Im'e glad you enjoyed the poem, I just love writing (Dogreal) a sort of poetry where the pen flows the wrong way from classical. Many critics don't like it, especial those that dont write themselves. Have you read Herberts big aunt poem, it's ACE, CHEERS S

    Dear Herbert thanks for enjoying my poem. It was your Aunt's, the Big one that gave me the inspiration to write it. truefully I do have count the C, because I only have to look at at a bar of chocolate and on go the pounds. My sister is the exact opposite, she can eat anything she wants and still keeps a size 10, don't it make you sick.I can't remember the last time I ate a fresh cream cake, but just for the record my sister has had four this week(cream cakes I mean) Cheers S

    Gypsy, your point about there being too much discussion and complaining about the rating system is spot on. Adversus solem ne loquitor - don't waste your time arguing the obvious. However, I did make a feeble attempt at a little limerick on the topic:

    The ratings are dumb and we know it
    But I’ve found that there’s more than one poet
    Who’s over-inflated
    Takes Offense when they’re rated
    They’ll be wise when they choose not to show it.

    Sorry, I was in the East German 'young pioneers'. There, X meant that someone got crucified by the STASI.
    So xx is something only the BOYscouts can use?
    Have to keep this short as it would fall under personal too much. Some do get offended by clouds in a foreign country.

    XX is secret squirrel stuff. Didn't you learn that in Boy Scouts?


  • Herbert Nehrlich1 (3/26/2005 1:59:00 AM) Post reply

    I didn't mind the spelling but what does xx mean?

  • Scarborough Gypsy (3/26/2005 1:41:00 AM) Post reply

    Please accept my appologies for the spelling in my last posting. I just read it and saw how appaling it was but i wrote it rather rushed. So sorry.
