    Hello Family,

    This community thrives on love ... it is sustained by it ... if you are not willing to give it ... please don't post your work here.

    It is absolutely essential that you give love to the other poets that post here. We don't want to make a rule, that you give love to a certain number of peaces, before you post your own. We are not about rules and hinderances that might keep us from flowing freely ... but giving love to other poets is required and we will be enforcing this, from this point on.

    We have our Poetic Etiquette Rules, as well as many posts gently encouraging you to do this, but many are not doing it! :nono:

    If we don't see you giving as much love as you're wanting to receive ... i.e. ... if you are posting more of your work than you are giving love to other poet's work ... you are not welcome here.

    It's just that simple.

    We won't survive if you only come here to suck up the love ... never giving any. We must be willing to give love and support to each other. If you are not doing that, you are basically a drain on this community and we really can't afford that at this point.

    As a matter of fact, we need more than your love, we need your financial support too ... we need you to become a "Premium Member" ... to help this community survive ... but if you are not willing or able to become a Premium Member ... at the very least, you must give love.

    If you have any questions, please post them.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Pretty clear cut. What questions could there possibly be? Doesn't take long to say how a poem made you feel. Peace.

    Brother MADD ... please don't misunderstand ... we are not opening the door for negative critiques of poetry ... unless that poet specifically asks for that. We still have our same standing "Poetic Eitquette" rule ... if you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all. While this may limit your comments to the work of other poets here (as you may have nothing nice to say to the majority) ... surely there are a few peaces, that you have kind things to say about?

    It is those that we want you to speak to.

    We want nothing but real love here.

    Understand what i'm saying MADD?

    :heart:
