I HATE BLOGS

    I wish you wouldn't let the bastards wear you down.
    Poetry's filled with fuckers who want to tear everyone down and not keep others from coming up.

    Don't let them win.
    I wish you hadn't taken down Issue 1

    From what I understand, you were falsely attributing work to poets who did not actually write it.

    That's tacky at best and artistically reprehensible at worst. Please don't do things like this and expect people not to react.

    This is art, not a toy. And Jack, I'm sorry, dear, you sound like you have no stake in this whatsoever. If you are a poet, you show an astonishing lack of respect. If you're not, you are entitled to your opinion, but please don't paint us all with the same brush.

    I'm a pastor's wife, not a b******. I would appreciate your remembering that folks come from all walks of life before you blather on!

    Thank you. poetmomskas

    "Don't let the bastards wear you down."
    "Illegitimi non carborundum"

    A pastor's wife should be smarter or grow a sense of humor.

    Art is a toy.
    Art has no dignity. Art warrants no respect.

    I am not a dear.

    A reaction to art is good. Letting that reaction scare and intimidate the artist is bad. The benighted "poets" who stomped out other people's art are as disgusting as the pimpled boy who kicks a child's sand castle down.

    No stake? No one had a stake in this. No one has a stake in art. People with such a degree of negativity regarding art as the "poets" who condemn the forgodot.com people depressing and offensive because they are egotistical enough to think that they have a stake in art. It is not a contest. There is no prize. There are no stakes.

    I wonder what the response would have been if the poets' names had been the first lines (that is, the titles) rather than the last lines of the poems.
