Our little spot on Poemhunter is our own little bit of space. OUr territory.
If we draw a parrallel with our homes. Would we invite poeple in to visit and expect them to steal from us or be rude to us? I think not. So when we post our poems we would like the same respect. We want to invite readers. BUT we do not want them to be rude or damage what we do. That is inconsiderate and unnecessary. We have every right to retaliate if someone comes into our home and assults us. So we have every right on this site to defend ourselves against those who assult us verbally and emotionally on our little bit of poetic turf.
Thats how I see it.
