I can't believe anyone would give you a bad review. Your poems are alway perfect. I've only posted 2 writings since I have started up again, I got one who was very blunt, but not terrible. I guess I will find out as I post more. I think it is social media that does this. The things people say are so cruel and awful, you know they would never say it to a person's face. We are all so brave behind a computer. But I can't bring myself to be mean to writers. =} Though I have said a few things on Facebook and ticked some people off. =} Can you believe that. I'm usually so sweet and nice. Anyway very well done as always. Rox

You make a good point here; and you are the best person to speak out on this topic, as you probably (and justifiably) have the largest following who will actually read it and consider the message. Most members here really are polite and offer constructive criticism when warranted (which is the best benefit of membership here). A few miss a message everyone else seems to get without difficulty. And, of course, there are some "ratings saboteurs" and others who manage to be negative in some way, even about the most joyful of poems. I'm thankful for the first group, will clarify for the second group, and will politely but firmly counter the third group. Needless to say, some in the last group resent resistance (no matter how logical) -- but, it is that or be driven away by them, which I won't allow. You are where you are as much for your kind, thoughtful, and helpful reviews as for your matchless writing. This one is another superb example.

You have a brilliant touch and way for writing your poems, Dean. The rhymes and expressions are very sound, and no matter how long the foot of the verses, the rhythm is almost never lost. I don't know what life was like on FanStory four years ago, but I have not had any problems with mutual respect or discourse with a civil tongue. My only complaint is that too many reviewers gush over the sentiment of a work, but rarely analyze it as a poem from an intellectual point of view. I have also been a bit frustrated by some people reducing the number of stars in their rating because they made a mistake about my poem's rhyme scheme, or vocabulary. Oh, well. Back to reality - your work is top notch as usual.

This, my friend, is a work of sheer genius. I came on site this morning to see what reviews might have appeared overnight on my latest post and I find your so accurate portrayal of the site set out for all to see -and relate to - abfab. (a word that will be unfrstood here in the UK - and in the USA?)
This is a work that might well be established as compulsory readjng for all existing members and for all newcomers.
In particular I can relate to the reń£ret expressed that a newcomer has the freedom to criticise before posting anything of his/her own - that has to be wrong

Brilliant

This reads like a fairy tale, and a very good one, and has an important message to boot.

I could just paste a past response here and say "beautifully written and very moving." You made your point in such a easy way but still carrying punch. I said a long time ago in one of the forums that there is a lot of talent that is not promoted. It may be finances or illness. But no one wants to be bother with the 2 and 20 cent-ers.

I agree with you on intolerance. The writer may see a masterpiece in his writing, and who am I to burst that dream? Kindness above all. Like Thumper in Bambi, "If you can't say sumpin' nice, don't say nothin' at all."

Good for you. Beautifully written and well said. 8-)

Clever and creative editorial and a wise admonition. I'm too new to say much about the type of reviews but I have enjoyed reading and have received very good reviews. The poem story is a perfect way to state your fanstory observations.

I must say Dean that this poem was truly amazing. Your thoughts on fan story was written with much clarity and this poem was a story in itself. wonderfully crafted. Exceptional.

Well Well Dean I havent been onsite for about 4 weeks busy but also a little less enthuastic re FS but thought I would get on today and get ready to post a poem for the upcoming picture challenge for Monday 4th and thought I would check some poems out and here your are top of the tree and with a fantastic poem, well written, as always great meter and rhyme and gives a clear message of acceptance and niceness needed. How you could get an average for anything you write is beyound me You get all my sixes and your work is always inspirational and well worth the read. Cheers Christine

That my friend is one of the best poems in my eyes you have EVER written on fanstory..relevant to the mood I exactly feel.
Just had one no it all fk wit give me an average for a poem I posted tonight now I know I am no road scholar when it comes to my rhyming verse as everyone knows by now I write simplistically and usually non metaphorically in rhyming verse that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to read it.
Lo and behold when I went to this guys profile he had submitted 2 poems since joining in May 2016. I call it not having runs on the board,.
I feel one must have runs on the board before heavily critiquing anyone's work

Everything you said in your wonderful poem is true and I didn't even have to read the author's notes to know where you were coming from.
Thanks for posting this one Deano You have said it so subtly but perfectly

as always Dip
