    Dear /Gail, sorry I am seeing this so late. My time really got away from me this week. I sure would miss your contests if you stopped doing them. Most of them have been such an inspiration to me in my writing. You rock, Gail. Big LUV to you.

    Your poems are works of beautiful art... I know I could enter your contests... But my poems are about crazy Dragons, and childish situations that are there only to make everyone laugh... Masterpieces belong in your contests... Not my silliness... But I read the outcomes and results when posted... And truly enjoy and appreciate the work you do here.

    Oh Gail this makes me sad to think we won't get to read your uplifting blogs anymore...I know just what you mean about all the drama and negativity here's awful!Just you keep on being the sweet and kindly presence you've always been and don't let a few take that from you.I try to comment on your poems and also your blogs in a positive way as they make me feel good always.Please don't give up or stop being you.I mean you don't always place me in your contests and sometimes you're allowed to have an opinion!I don't get bent out of shape about it I just figure there's always next time...Bless you Gail for all you do..luv,Deb

    Gail, sorry to see some over exaggerated on the behalf of your emotions here. That is what they do, they wait to see who says what, then they follow. THEN THEY POINT FINGERS, AND BLAME POETS WHO ARE NOT INVOLVED... MARK MY WORDS YOU WILL SEE, WHAT THIS ATTACK WAS REALLY ABOUT. WE ALL KNOW WHAT IS NEXT. IF YOU NOTICE IT'S ALL GONNA BOIL DOWN TO WHO YOUR FRIENDS ARE:) I saw nothing offensive in what you told MW. You spoke your mind, not harsh at all. Harsh is the little attack that followed (Gail, in a bit you will see a few who will make a big deal. We all know where this is going, beacuse our hearts support and believe in you) ~SKAT~

    I have stopped reading all blogs because of this Gail, and I do agree with you on this one point, this is a poetry site, made for writing poetry, I behave on site, as I do in real life, I live and let live, I will add, if you stop posting your inspirations, it will be at the loss of a great many peaceful poets here, I respect your decision, but I as one, Gail, will continue to aspire to inspire in you, the greatest of friendship, one that is honest and true, sending you my peaceful healing thoughts, luv xxx

    Big hug to you, Gail. You are an example of how a lady really should be. It's up to us, as poets, to make it better. Shine on.

    Hello, Gail. In your blogs you always post your poems (with pictures). So many times, after checking your blog and realize that you posted another poem, I don't leave comments. Because if we're going to be honest, you never read my poems (only in few occasions). Anyways, Im guilty! I like to change opinions, I like a little bit of conflict here, a little bit of drama there... I'm kidding, don't get mad at me. Take a break and be back when you "feel" it. My best wishes.

    I hope these negative things will end soon, Gail. You are one poet who should not be ignored. This site was meant for enjoyment, not for argument! I am looking forward to hosting my first contest, but I know that not everyone will be happy with the judging. There is just no way to please everyone. :)

    Hi Gail I too am here to offer my deepest apologies to you for not commenting enough on your blogs, it is no excuse but sometimes life gets in the way but you should know I have supported you and your blogs whenever possible....I will do a hundred lines ...I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better....

    Gail, I'm a newby. On one of my first posted poems, Anne Lise welcomed me with words about which I continue to try my best to abide. They were, "comment on other's poems and they will comment on yours." That has pretty much been the case. People are people, regardless of where one goes in life (i.e., Walmart, restaurant, PoetrySoup, etc.) I try to embrace the positive ones and steer clear of the negative ones. Blessings to you for being one of the positive ones...Hugs from NC. --Mike

    oh Gail. I'm so sorry you're feeling this way, I rarely get here anymore and don't comment nearly enough on any of the blogs but the world needs more uplifting blogs please reconsider. and as for contests , if you don't have a thick skin you shouldn't sponsor one, we all get flack from people now and then for not placing them , I always tell them its my personal taste and they do not need to enter, Anyway. I'm sorry it had to take a blog voicing your frustration to merit a "hot" beside it

    I'm sorry to read this....for many reasons. I've always called you Angel....Your fluttering of wings at my poems brought me joy. I have NOT been blogging or joining the blog wars..I haven't been a member. I only asked Andrea about a contest...only once. I don't usually join contests. This blog makes me sad....You should never give up spreading the light...The One you write of sees....HE will reward you....His opinion matters the most...

    - Dear Gail, amen to your words !! - Three words fell into my head: evil, envy and insensibility - Evil as a result of a misunderstanding of what is good and evil - Anyone who attempts to expel evil for evil, will often cause more evil -   "Evil eye" that you may be exposed to because of envy and evil - It is negative emotions, which can not bring anything positive. - oxox // Anne-Lise :)

    Gail, you are a beautiful poetry soup sister. you have a beautiful soul. I too am sorry, that we inflict this place with darkness, and pain for everyone else. Sometimes I tend to defend our ways around here. This is a never ending war. I think, I'll just do what Irma (my sis) mentioned the other day. Turn away! I find reason in everything, and today you are my HERO! love ~SKAT~

    Dear Gail...I hope to read more inspiring blogs that you like.Yes I remember when poetrysoup used to be a sacred haven with fun blogs or blogs of solidarity.I miss those days..Re contests..I only participate once in a while.I participated in about only eight contests in these five yrs..but having Tps team as judges would be ideal..but with so many contests might be hard.. Re yourself..keep shining that candle in the dark girl..hugs

    Heard. I do apologize for not stopping by more often. Do what is best for you... if down, take some time for yourself. And it is sooooooooooooo wrong for people to get overly-wrought about contests (?) Silly. The real purpose of a contest is to inspire. The judges like what they like... but the poet still created something and that should be enough. A poem was born from a prod. Sometimes I even write poems that were inspired by a contest but don't fit it... people take it too seriously. Try taking a break, hon, then see how you feel. Maybe in a few weeks your light will be ready to beam again. Hugs, Cyndi

    It is hard Gail host contest and to try and be upbuilding. But you do both well; I hate to see you bothered. I know where you are right now, emotionally; and I hope you do not take your spark from us for long.

    How sad to read this , I'm still relatively new and trying to find my way around, I enter all competitions for fun and I am upset that judges should be made to feel bad because of a poem chosen or not chosen. All of us have different tastes , Surely we can understand that. Love always. Daz

    I luv you very much Gail, sometimes I don't come around, and you know why. However, that should not excuse me from enjoying the way I enjoyed your blogs and poems in the past, even if it was only to read and show off your many times to a certain family member, who needed words of comfort. I am guilty, right now, I've been on for 3 or 4 days, straight off and on, not once have I stopped by to open your blog or read anything positive from your heart. Maybe I haven't seen you around, still, I have no excuses. In the past, I admit, I clicked on your blogs, no matter, if we shared words or not. Your friends are right, your blogs are uplifting, I know when I needed a share of light, I'd go running to GAIL. You are right to post this blog. I am SORRY! We should be ashamed of ourselves. Where is the love? All we are doing is spreading the hostility. I really do try! Better Yet, am doing good so far. (Except for one slip yesterday) always~ LINDA
