I think that madame Lavander is right about one thing - I have said all I want to say on this subject - if you are unable to read what you have written and my posts on these threads then that is not my problem. You have successfully got this thread buried like the others and I am done. You have beaten me into submission, I am waving a white flag, surrendering - there are a small number of people who are and have experienced bullying, people should not be able to have multiple accounts and the blocking facility should be more robust - I leane that to the webmiss and the mods to decide - It is no completely out of my hands as I have no power to activate change. If the members don't care about these issues then they will continue unabated. I have done my bit it is over - over and out
if someone however good or bad their poetry or their education/literacy level is, lacks the capacity to deal with the subject and subject only , attacks the person who is raising some uncomfortable questions, he/she is clearly a bully. There is a clear pattern here of past years of such behaviour, unfortunately David has been subject of such bullying and he is raising a valid point. That is the context. A bully lacks the capacity to deal with and stay on the subject, he only knows one thing..attack the one who raises the question rather than counter with an argument. Long story short.. gets personal straight away even if it is not directly involving him/her personally.
For that reason this indeed is an important topic. uncomfortable obviously for some.
