I talk crap when I've had too much also.  ;D

Mark I know you wrote this on the spur of the moment but I don't get it.
Usually there is something on the front page worth reading and to say that only I or victor
provide the occasional interest and fodder for inspiration is pretty dismissive of
other good poets, and pretty cool praise for Victor or I  ;D ;D ;D ;D
 Hey, I'm not getting on your case, just have to point this out.

You're a good poet so why would you need to read a poem on RMP to get inspired?

Anyway Happy New Year matey
and lets get motivated for 20012. :)

Yes.  Stone Cold.  But it doesn't stop me making a total prick of myself on occasion ;-)

Heidi, why would you let one person's opinion influence you to that extent?

I don't care about his opinion. It's the whole toxic atmosphere here, and this post just sums it all up.
Many members no longer post here because of it, and I'm going to join their ranks.

Too many good topics and nice people elsewhere to put up with this... hmmm, what's the word I'm looking for?   ;)

heidi I joined those ranks a while ago too.Am in touch with a couple of people via email. Will post in a couple of threads but I very much doubt that I will post work here again. My eyes have been opened.


Happy New Year to all.

cheers

wow now there is a reaction, not quite  expected but it least its honest as I was although too stongly worded   

I will delete  my account and let the world move on  and thanks those that have helped support my learning
  
The funniest thing though was the email received today which even had me perplexed as clearly there is one one of me and I am a bloke, I wont name the sender but it did make me smile...enjoy and thanks again.

"I always got the impression that you were a cretin, but your latest post confirmed it.

You and your boyfriend have ruined the board, chasing away any newbies that had the temerity to post and in general making life miserable for everyone.

Enjoy your circle jerk, the 2 of you deserve each other.

2 words for you - I'm sure you know what they are."

my gues was happy christmas

Actually I think the quality of the work at this forum has improved immeasurably over
the last year.  This is self evident to me.  Just go trawl the archives if you really
want to see vast amounts of second-rate crap.  I think there are a core of folks
here who are truly interested in improving their writing skills and that is always a
healthy sign for a site like this.  I would urge anyone to select anything from the past
pages of this forum to compare to the recent poetry.  While of course there is some
good poetry to be found (I have reviewed and reprised the best of it), most of it
is unspeakably awful. Standards has risen over the last twelve months among all
the regular poster to this list. This is a fact that is undeniable and demonstrable.

I would suggest that all those who carp about the "crap" personally make an effort
not to add to the crap, and stop taking cheap shots at others that strive to
improve their skills and understanding of poetry craft.  If some folks are not
happy with honest critique or feel under-appreciated, or are perhaps envious
of those that actually do write well, then they always have the option of going
to play somewhere else, some place more conducive to the level of writing they feel
more comfortable with.

A forum like this should be educative but also fun. If they are not having any fun
it is probably due to their own attitude.
