One more question....isn't it a 'good-thing' to leave the site for a day or so and then re-post all your work? ? ? I'm just thinking.......is that how people get so many people reading their poems? Just a thought.......

    Hi Mary. NO not at all. For example...When I removed all my poems it was because I felt That I would NEVER EVER post on such a site again. All my work appears in my Books. (Which Poetry Hound Cannot Find) .
    I want nothing to do with all the silly rubbish which occurs here. I was leaving for good. BUT then I got some really lovely emails from FRIENDS who were upset I had left. I wrote to poem Hunter anad asked them to stop the nonsense of the people who were causing it, and when I got a reply assuring me that the people concerned were being watched carefully and action would be taken if they contunued, I made the decision to return. It had nothing
    what-so-ever to do with any plan to get read again. Quite honestly. I DON'T CARE.
    In fact the reason I didn't put ALL my 200 poems up is because I am saving them for another Book which is being recorded as a Talking Book for the Blind etc. I am in the srecording studio in April again.
    Poemhunter was more a social exercise for me. A place to meet other poets of quality, than a means of having my work read.
    I hope that helps

      I have no doubt your intentions were honorable. (not that my humble opinion really matters) I have read much of your work and know you don't NEED this site for your poetry. I also like this site si ... more
