    The Greedy

    There are those that continually submit and keep taking and taking without reciprocating 1/3 the amount of comments given to them. It may be small at first but when hundreds of comments are left unreciprocated it turns into a mess. Should they be banned and have that gap? Or do we hope they change. They seem to think either, they are wonderful in their writing skills so that people keep giving them comments(the new users tell them "ur briliunt way to go!1") and others anxiously await their next submission, or that commenting will drain their originality. It's just ridiculous and rude. People negotiate reasons with themselves and find others to complain to that will support them. The bums unite by common hatred and a lack of 'conformity' to the rules. Rebels without a cause taking from a nonprofit writing site.. go them! pfft...

    You're worried about people not commenting on here??

    % Reciprocated: 65.4%
    Given - Taken: -37
    Words Given: 3345
    AVG Per Comment: 47.79

    In the old days, you'd be marked an evil sheep. You're one of them (the non-commenters). Get over yourself.

    Just curious, what is the new website? I agree with your comment against the person below this. I am writing a story, and I need some better critiques, and I don't get more than 15 views on anything anymore which leads me to believe that there are only 15 people on this website, which I know is foolish. I was just wanting to know if you could please tell me about the new poetry web site. Thank you. Peace and Providence.

    For starters, my main disagreement was with your blaming the member base being inactive on the Webmaster.

    JimmyR has no power over the members of his site who choose to read and not respond.

    Secondly, I also stated that perhaps the lack of comments compared to views might be indicative of a problem in itself. Most members DO NOT read boring pieces, and as such, if you are seeing a huge number of views and not so many comments, it's like that your piece simply doesn't grab attention.

    Thirdly, I never said ANYTHING that implied that I did not agree with you about the site being in a state of disrepair. You claiming I disagreed is an indicator that either you didn't bother to fully understand my comments, or you are incapable of doing so.

    Finally, I find it hard to believe you find any degree of meaningful interaction in the debate forums, it seems you are absolutely void of the necessary skills for successful debating.

    Elite Skills will be better off without you.

    Making room for more individuals who, like myself, support the site through vigilance, and hope, and continual effort against the lethargy that plagues most of our members.

    The best thing a person like yourself can do for the site is to shove off. And stay gone.

    No response? No defense? Amigo, I'd wager that you're a whole mess worse than those folks who read and don't comment. You probably don't have the dedication, concentration, or respect to read something through at all.

    Well, to be honest, there are probably still about the same proportion of reads to replies, but there are a lot fewer people submitting.
    I probably shouldn't blame anyone, but I think a lot of people just write something and post it without crafting it at all, and that's not the right attitude. You also rarely get good feedback. It's always "This is great" or "I prefer poems that rhyme" or something like that. That's led a lot of the veterans to either leave or not check in very often.

    I hope you're well,
