    I'm confused about the rules of this gift card for reading the most poetry contest. There's no way I'm even going to try to beat these folks but it says you can only get one point every 2 minutes. Presumably to stop people from just clicking through all the poems on the page. That's cool, but I don't understand how some one can get 83 thousand + points in a week. That's 116 days worth of 2 minutes. What am I missing?

    The poem hunter pages have given ample opportunities for the poets to a right forum to discuss and publish their writings of poems for public scrutiny, evaluation, and opinion which is very helpful for poets and readers alike. In this world of I.T. and the world is having oneness through effective communication we can glad appreciate this facility in its spirit and responsibility.

    Thank you poemhunter for conducting contest. Although it is hard for me to win, it is still an opportunity to share my poems.
