      You may be right LP... I've got no proof either way. I only claimed belief, not knowledge - just to be accurate..

      PH was launched, I believe, in 2003. Schnackenberg was already a major voice at that time. Its unlikely she would've joined PH. Why would she?Those three poems of hers were placed there by others, mor ... more

      I believe she was a member once... was just dangling a little bait..! ! Seemed too good an opportunity to miss... oh well.. catcher caught! It's a pretty decent poem and only the very brave, arrogant ... more

    Hi, great poets. I suggest reading and studying all Shakespeare's sonnets fully, so what do you think?Thanks.

    I really want to get my green crest, even if I have to take some other poets down while I'm on my way up. Sorry, that's the world of competitive poetry. I figure the more down votes I give someone the more chance I'll have to move up.
    Fair warning. Look for a lot of " ones" coming your way. I apologize, but it's the law of the jungle. You go down in prosaic flames, while I rise up in the poetry world. What's bad for you gets me digging on Treasure Island. Acker, you're going down first.

      Thanks Jeff. It's a different world out there for poets these days. One has to be aggressive. Opportunistic, if you will. If someone's better than you, stick a " one" in their back pocket. R ... more

      Frank, that's the attitude! You're my hero and template! Good luck with your new career!

      Mr. Westlake, I'll try my best, however, I can't stand to see the other (inferior) poets getting their higher colors before me. I'm shooting for purple by the end of the day. Wish me luck!

    Hi, dear members. I suggest reading, studying, commenting, ........, ..........., on a certain poem for a certain poet daily. Some poets can translate this poem into different language. We can benefit from this task in addition to other tasks. Thanks.

      Please delete this duplicate post. You're crowding in on my poetry corporate ladder. How's about 6 " ones" on your latest poems sound?That's what I thought, now delete it.

    Think I'll look up the top thirty of the so-called top poets and post " You show great skill and promise" on their most recent poem. See how many reply.

    So now we can look forward to a myriad of forum posts from the front-page carpet bombers of old, marketing and self-promoting their statistical rankings. When will PH start promoting quality, rather than quantity?Never, as that does not bring in the revenue of the advertisers.

    If you can
    stand on sharp edge
    a blade awaits
    your foot-tips to stand you alone

    another wonderful world
    sure will show you
    claps greeting your efficiency..
