Recurring debates on important poetry topics.
There will always be someone out there who wants to rattle your cage (or mine). I just figure if I don't bite, they'll get bored with me and move on? I know how vulnerable you feel, and I understand that discussions such as this can definitely scare newbies away from attempting to write or join the bush poetry circle. When I first stepped into the poetry world, I found everyone very friendly and welcoming. I have seen a decline in this welcomingness, which is very unfortunate. I just wish everyone could "play nice" like they did years ago.
