Quote LeftI really like the new 200 most recent poets posting feature. With some contributors posting several poems a day, the most recent poems doesn't allow as much access to as many writers as it used to. The combination of the two, gives the reader more flexibility in accessing poetry. Thank you for adding it. Quote Right
