I too would be more comfortable without the numerical rating system. Why not just give our reaction to a poem, suggestions for improvement or praise or criticism in the 'comments' section. If the numerical rating system is retained, have a record of the rater next to the numerical rating. This will eliminate the immature 'hit and run' raters and also embarrass those (Yes, I'm sure there are a few of them) who pump up the ratings of their own poems. This is a wonderful site; finding it has got me writing again after about a 10 year layoff. Now, if there was the same kind of site for short stories.
This is off topic, but has anyone donated to this site? I'm very leary of going the PayPal route and giving out my credit card number, but if others of you have used it with no repercusions, it might be alright. Let me know your own experiences on this, will you please?

    for short stories try abc.tales.com (not sure if the spelling is correct) : there you can post short stories and get reactions, too.

    I use Paypal quite frequently. It is a secure site. Proceed without worry.
