    I don't mean to be harsh, all writers of poetry deserve to have their work judged fairly, but how can this guy Nikhil Parekh expect to be viewed in any light of kindness by the poets on this site after clogging up the site with his poems for most of the day. It’s just madness! And can anyone tell me why he has decided to publish his few thousand poems or whatever on this site?

    I'm surprised that PH allows so many poems to be published in a day. Kenneth Snow is right about the rest of our poems being buried under this mountain of ego-driven poetry. Perhaps the editor of PH ought to step in and make some rules about poetry. We are not allowed to vote more than once on a poem (I didn't do it deliberably, only absentmindedly) so surely a person who submits more than s certain number a day could be cut off.

    Perhaps there could be a memo at the top of each poem for certain people who do not want a rating or a comment. I, for one, consider myself a poet and want honest feedback. Attacks are something else but I consider those kinds of attacks to be from someone who has personal problems and ignoret them. I have been a member of several poetry critique groups and I tend to critique poems sincerely and, I hope, kindly. Our main thrust in those groups was to help each other improve poetry. It never occurred to me that there were people on this website who didn't care to improve. I don't want to get in anyone's face and hope I haven't offended anyone. If a critique is done in a caring way, a poet has a chance to make necessary changes. If a poet doesn't want to do that, then that's ok too.

    I'm new to this site but yes I think the rating system is unfair an arbitrary. Anyone who might not like you personally can give you a low score and others who come alongmight not have the intellect or heart to be honest and up it even if they think it deserves it. Just let us leave comments, thats a better barometer of how the poem is beingrecieved. People obviously are not honest or smnart enough to use the rating system the way it was designed to be used.

    God, I hate jealous poets. Learn to write and there will be no need to hate on other people who have talent.

    I think if your moved enough to give someone's poem a ONE, you should be bold enough to explain why! What cowards and imbeciles.
