So far I have put up with people sending 'global' e-mails asking people to read their poety and 'vote' for them. There are over seventy thousand poets submitting poetry to this site, most of whom just post and wait to see if anyone actually likes their poems. I suspect that most people on here are also very nice and generous people otherwise why would they open themselves up and show the workings of their soul. There are however a few individuals who are deluding themselves that by soliciting comments and votes, that their poetry is actually 'good' when in reality it, like them, is just mediocre. One has to suspect that the votes and comments they get are based not on their talents as a poet as much as on the good nature and inate generosity of the other poets on this site. How about we put an embargo on soliciting vote and comment and just wait and see what comments we get!
