To the Administrator

To the administrator, always out of sight

Do you ever try to manage this site

Are you content with posts that offer spite

Or do you think dirt slinging’s a poster’s right

 

A certain poster has offered insults and more

Belittling a poet many other poets adore

And I assume to you, it must be a chore

To get off your butt and show them the door

 

These foul posters aren’t some type of ghost

But for some reason you let them coast

Instead of just being money engrossed

How about, get off your a*s and act like a host

I have been here for about six years, but recently I have been on and off. I don't have a clue what is going on! Why is Margie gone? It's ok if you don't want to say, I will understand.

This site has many issues but I always return for it is a safe space for my writing and being me
Well put, sadly a lot of good poets have left due to the asses allowed to pedal their crap.
Pity Margie just didn't tell them to f**k off. Sadly in life this is just what you have to put up with.

Margie should get back here, that way she rises above the morons.
PS Do you really think there IS a moderator? I believe the place to be a sole proprietor enterprise and that sole individual is a cashier not a moderator.

that is exactly what it looks like
Much as I hate to come in at the middle of a story it does give the benefit of unleashing my unfettered imagination. However, it is a mite difficult to imagine which transgression Margie might have committed to cause all the torch and pitchfork ruckus. Be that as it may she has left the field with honor and fond memory. I suspect she will be back with renewed vigor and thicker armor. But, no dark cloud but the silver lining thus your great poem. Excellent work Sir.

The only time I saw him was when I used to run poetry comps and he sent emails etc
I’ve only been on here three years we lost one of the best nicest ladies so now the trolls win sad state of affairs

Come out come out wherever you are snd ban the trolls

a Maria Isabella contacted me THREATNING that IF Margie were to return, they (trolls) would carry on with their crap
I can only assume she is responsible for the garbage and dear Administrator, that threat alone should be enough to get, at least her, off the site
YOOHOO anyone there???

it is saddening...we lost a true soul of this place.
Monitoring seems non-existent. this is poetry site, not a battle ground---
Can the wars be over? We need our overseer to take a look, and get us a truce.
thanks for this, Dave.
This still could be a great place to share poetry...instead of a place to trade insults.

there are a lot of good people here, unfortunately there are also some a-holes
Said so well Dave. The site is riddled with tech problems and trolls. This latest group and I don't think it is one person acting alone, hounding a poet who has contributed so much, from the site. If the site had a moderator who was doing the job properly instead of being asleep when duty calls, this situation wouldn't have arisen. It pains me that in a world fighting a deadly disease there are some who prefer to allow their malicious side to take over. So sad.

I doubt if the moderator even bothers to check in. Sad state of affairs Dave.
