I concur, Lamont, about the artists you have listed. They were intelligent writers defending their work, touting their expertise, ad infinitum...the operative word being" intelligent" , and I would add another word, eloquent, even in their passionate anger. Sadly, the pseudo-debates that take place at " Poem" hunter are neither intelligent, nor eloquent, neither from the men of letters, nor the less learned. Impassioned embroilment is delightful to see, read, hear, and in which to involve oneself when both intelligence and eloquence fuel it. With the " poets" who frequent " Poem" hunter, such intelligence and eloquence are not likely to present themselves, and what the " arguments" end up being are comically tragic. Insert pouty face here.

Of course its easier to fight for your poetry, if you have actual poetry to fight for. Just saying. (smile) -LP

Lamont's right. Artists who take their art seriously fight to the death. Those who see art as harmless self-expression, the wannabe poets on this site, praise each other. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! !
