    Chris, I want to comment on the last installment to this about the situation in the Middle East...THANK YOU...for calling it as it is. Not many people have the courage to do that. Bless you!

    Hi Chris, Have you checked under the catagory of best poems? The soup puts the best poems there, and this I believe is where the high numbers come from as they get constant exposure. I too was amazed when I saw the numbers on my poems and wondered the same thing. Hope this helps solve the mystery. Elaine

    Hullo, Elaine. I understand the angle you are getting at(this also includes poems on the "Top 100 All-Time Poems" list). But as an example, this new posting jumped 400 - 600 views in the 3 minutes that it took to edit it after it was submitted. The post was brand new and within barely any time at all, it was almost at 700 views. If a poem is older and is located on one of the main lists here on the site, I would expect it to get a lot of views.

    Interesting--my kicked up views always come on the lesser used forms like a shape poem because on an internet search it might pop up as an example so it gets viewed but they can't comment. But a free verse poem doesn't fall into that category so ??

    I don't understand you ... How difficult is to accept that every Souper "have" to visit your poems and read them ... although they cant find the right words to express their admiration, they visit your page. Accept it! You're so popular. : D How are you Chris? My poems have a lot of views also ... I hope it's not a glitch! LOL.

    I also had a mega spike in 1 of my poems-- My eyes sort of bugged out when I saw my latest poem had 1,240++ views! so weird! Another poem had a spike but not as much. I actually also had just put up a post, wondering who this mega-clicker was. I superclicked one of your poems before for kicks & experiment & one can get the hang of mega-uber clicking & it was fun at the time (but that was a once in a blue moon thing) but like you say,it's a waste of time & energy. & I see others have also been mega-clicked. Weird, somebody has some time to waste (or maybe there's some 'click-therapy' going on that I'm not aware of o_O) or maybe it is just a glitch

    So funny, Chris... maybe some young lady out there has a crush on you, Ha Ha! I'm sorry, I know it really is weird. 'mega-clicking' behaviour' is not in my bag of tricks! LOL why is someone doing this? Crazy, or what? ha ha . Of course, it could just be a glich in the system.... love and hugs, Catie :)

    Chris..A souper friend once noticed that I had about 500shares on my homepage and He had quite a lot too.He asked me if i have an idea who shares our poems.From that time (about few mnths ago)..my share views went up to 1603..and Im only writing here on ps.Why and who would share my simple verse 1603 rimes? Doesn t make sense..so i understand you completely.
