I saw where you were heading pretty much at the beginning. Over the years I find myself giving an awful lot of 5 stars. I will give a four when I make a lot of corrections and even then, people get angry. Hey, I took the time to help you and you get angry? So I fret when giving anything below a 5 star. It shouldn't be. One of my favorite people here always gave me 4 stars. Because she spent time editing my boo boos. It never bothered me. Once she gave me 5 and I was shocked and pleased at myself for earning it.
I would not have learned anything if everyone just said , "Hey nice job."
Now of what you speak I agree as well. Some people just like to bad mouth work with out explanation. If you don't like what is written, don't read it. Like I used to say about Howard Stern. Just turn off the radio, people.
I found your poem a lot of fun to read. I should say read between the lines. Don't let a few bad apples spoil the bunch
Happy Holidays
Heidi

This is a terrific poem that tells a great alagorical story of the site and a lessening of respectful reviewing as one would associate with a friendly and helpful gathering of like-minded folks. As everywhere in a free society there will be jealousy, pomposity, rudeness, and a general ignorance associated with exchanges on a forum. It's good to note our occasional ire, make general and nonspecific references to irksome behavior, and call for a more genial comportment from members who may be both plank owners and plebes. This verse scared me as it made me think that either you or the site itself was pulling up stakes. That would truly be a sad and mournful day.

Hi Dean,
Your poem is fantastic. As usual your creativity is second to none. Regards to FS, I am somewhat illusioned at present. Three years ago I had many fans who always reviewed my work. I used to get all time best quite often. They are all left and I have only a handful left. When Gungalo, Brook, Domino, and many more. were on here they were not my fans, but when I reviewed their work they would review one of mine. Nobody does that now. I know if I had more member cents I would get great recognition. Anyway you have written a great poem about how we should be curious and not harsh with our reviews and I agree with you totally.
Well done
Mary

Dean,

As usual, your poem comes bearing enriched words, interweaved in a well-written tale. I enjoy your stories of a different era. I like the approach you took to convey your message of respecting the literary works of others regardless if the genre may be to your liking.

I often read poems where the genre, view or the poetic voice may be different from mine. However, I review the work for its literary merits, not necessarily the subject matter or the author. I think the one of main criteria when reviewing is to review the work, not the author.

Hopefully with poems, as yours, the site will return to a more respectable manner. Thank you for the bringing the subject forth.

I've copped a fair bit on fanstory over time, it sometimes stretched my patience, I've almost reached the end of my tour here, at least for awhile. But this is an extremely eloquent poem, great internal rhyme, skilful crafting, deft and and elegant wording, some people don't realise how difficult it is to do this, well done, Dean, blessings, Roy

My dear sir, you are so right. I have said all along that in the past three years there has been a change and it is not for the good. This is going to be my last year on here. I want to see it through, but I am so tired of the backbiting and jealousy, and the innocient mistakes being made and thrown out for the world to see when a few words would clear things up. I so dearly love this piece and I am proud to have you as a friend.

Hello, Dean, you have outdone yourself with this beautiful and elegant poet. A classic. I like all the famous paintings you chose, they give your presentation a real renaissance look. Good job, Dean, I am proud of you.

Dean,

Of all the wonderful, thoughtful, both terrible and amazing things you have written, I think this one speaks to me the most. Fanstory needs to be a safe place to show every emotion, thought, creative idea, outlandish true musings, to all. I have learned something about my own writing lately. Women connect with me, Men not so much. I find that the men pick on details while the women run with the emotions. The greatest gift equality in the work place has given us is that no one should limit themselves , they can succeed where ever their goals take them. However, that does not mean that women and men are the same. We simply aren't. I like that my husband is physically stronger than me and could defend me from evil, however if love and understanding is needed at any critical hour, he must listen to me, calm down and try to understand the world. I have more to say but not now, because this is about the beautiful story you just told that will remain immersed in my mind forever.

Hi Dean,

Excellent piece. I don't get to poetry too much these days but I have read some great ones in the last couple of days. Very wise words told in this fine allegorical tale.

I know some think I'm wrong using the little four star review regularly but I do try to balance my reviews fairly, what works, what doesn't as I know you do too - and ALWAYS have.

I've been here a little over two years now and it's changed quite a bit in that time.

The open mind to genre and topic is one of the biggest barriers. Me? I read everything in the fiction prose section that I can regardless of genre.

This is flawless, as far as I can tell...

All the best
G

Minds that are rigidly literal, and demand political correctness, and are driven to spread their views, are common everywhere. Wet blankets, great for smothering fires and sending up stinking smoke. Excellent poem, Dean, grand vision.
