Sorry, hadn't read your previous post about copyright.

I don't blame you... and of course it's your business if you want to make it that... but I'm puzzled about 'scattered around the web'. Maybe I misunderstand you; but multiple tags and personaliities to fit them are the curse of chat sites when they're used maliciously as traps, or vindictively to bolster oneself in a feud.... So you needn't worry about that.
My suggestion on comment to you and everyone is that a request to be publicly judged on a particular poem - if you really want that and can bear it - is very much to be welcomed on all sides. Though I wish that we forswore 'bad' and 'good' (only thinking makes them so, quote) for 'successful' and unsuccessful'. Those terms neatly place the subjective ball back on the server's court, but the ball's still in play, no-one's abused the umpire (Collette Barniere) or walked off the court (only to re-appear as someone else...)
