How strange of PH to do that. What exactly did they tell you?What exactly was the allegedly pornographic content?

    I had a poem called Skinnydipping and one called First Time which contained some sexual terms but were essential and contextual to the poetry. I am completely flabergasted and I have only been informed of their reason to remove these two poems - no explanation for removing every single other one. Yes, very strange indeed. I had a falling out with someone recently - another writer - I can only assume outside contact. But would they remove everything based on someone's grudge?- if that were the case there would be people having work removed all the time, no? I have repeatedly asked for an explanation but have thus far received nothing. I am very disappointed and baffled.
