MESSAGE
To Needful - Where Did You Go?
DISCUSSION
I didn't mean to scare you away. Did you pull your piece from the site?
SUBMITTED BY
Lester
DATE POSTED
January 8, 2008
RESPONSE
"Yes I pulled my poems from this site. I am not as you have perceived, and never wanted to project such an image of myself. We all cloak ourselves in a dream, and it took little I suppose for you to uncloak mine. " -- Needful. (2008-1-10)
"This is pretty typical of some of the more "needy " writers. They look for praise and compliments but can't tolerate honest criticism. If you're not throwing accolades their way, they just pull their work and ignore us. " -- Richard . (2008-1-13)
"What else can you expect from adolescence?" -- Connie. (2008-1-13)
"Critique, well I could have accepted that far more easily than to insult ones self. I have written much here, some well accepted and some not. But, Lester (a synonym for what?), makes negative reviews, I have seen nothing more than that. And Richard, who are you? And Connie? All hidden names to spew out ugly words for fear of retributions? " -- needful. (2008-1-20)
"Who am I, you ask? I have been contributing to this site for more than a decade. I never read the piece your pulled so I can't give an opinion on that work or Lester's review. But the fact that you pulled the poem or whatever it was, is evidence to me, that you are among those who want only favorable reviews of your work and will accept nothing else. I have posted a lot of stories and poems over the years and have taken some brutal criticism mostly along ideological lines. I never pulled anything from this site despite some very hateful things posted. Instead, I posted a series of rebuttals to my critics until I felt there was no point in continuing the discussion any further. If a writer posts a poem or a short story, he or she is entitled to an honest review of the work from a writer's perspective as to technical structure, originality, creativeness etc. When a poem or story or essay is posted that emphasizes a moral issue or is ideologically driven, then the writer can also expect criticism from those who disagree with the moral or ideological premise of the work. Take a look at my poem, "Empty closets" and take note of those reviews. " -- Richard. (2008-1-21)
"I read Richard's poem "Empty closets" and I think it's hilarious. You weren't really being serious were you? " -- Dentyne. (2008-1-22)
"Satire is classically defined as sharp criticism and usually contains more than an element of truth. " -- Richard. (2008-2-27)
"Please and thank you are magic words." -- JH. (2008-4-6)
"Please and thank you are magic words." -- JH. (2008-4-6)
"Spoiled little children learn quickly how to say please to get what they want. They also learn to say thank you which allows them repeat the cycle over and over." -- Ophelia. (2008-10-1)
