PoetrySoup is an internet poetry resource and community that encourages the writing of poetry through community involvement and support. Founded in February of 2005, this Free online poetry website allows professional and amateur poets, from around the world, to post their poetry online and receive reviews.

For those who simply like to read poetry, PoetrySoup also publishes poems in many categories and forms for wholesome reading pleasure.


Spats


Blog Posted:1/15/2013 2:12:00 PM
Please poets, keep your spats private. PoetrySoup is not the place to make disagreements public (Not sure there is a place for that). This is a poetry website, not a Soap Opera.

While we respect our Poets' freedom of expression, there are certain subjects and content that will not be allowed on PoetrySoup. Posting poems containing this content will result in deletion of your poetry and possible membership suspension for repeat offenders. Examples of unacceptable content or subjects are:
  • Sexually Explicit (X-Rated) Language
  • Profanity (Curse Words or Abbreviated Curse Words)
  • Nasty Comments (E.g. "This is CRAP!!!")
  • Occultism
  • Vulgarity
  • Personal Attacks, Battles, or Slamming Soup Members (Do not use a member's name in poems or comments - unless it is positive!!!)
  • Hateful Expressions (E.g. "I should have killed her")
  • Racism
(Romans 12:17) . . .Return evil for evil to no one. Provide fine things in the sight of all men.

    I love what James Fraser said in his comment........very sensible! I agree, James. Are we not grown ups?? Sometimes it is more like being back in middle school to see Soupers swinging mud back and forth. Happens much too often.

    There are "Soaps" for every taste: Soap-a-rific, Soap-isticated, or Soap-ageddon... : ) We should name them. Here...ideas to pick a good title: "Lyer Lyer"... "Curl Up & Lye"..."Slippery Soap"... "Bubbling Trouble" ..."Doubley Bubbley"..."Soap-positories"... "Welcome Foam" ... "Foam, Sweet Foam"... "Ben Dover: Worth Picking Up!" ... "Jailtime Aphrodisiac".... : D

    Chris, that brings up a whole range of euphemisms about poetry soap. Put your reputation on the line. Throw your muse out with the wash. Air your smelly words. Keep your poetry clean. Give me a few more Ruben. I have several more but I know you are itching to wash your mouth out with the soap.

    Ha! Chas, I just used the: "wash out your mouth with soap" euphemism, below! Ja, that's why I am so clean(*snicker*)....there are so many 'soap dispensers' on this site :D

    When I first joined PS, someone welcomed me with: "Welcome to PoetrySoap!" The person had mis-spelled "Soup"....so I was under the impression that the site was sort of a Soap Opera for poets to tangle and vent a bit. I began welcoming newcomers with: "Welcome to PoetrySoap, I hope these will be The Days of Your Life, a Guiding Light, and like a General Hospital for your soul to recover in!" -- until another member contacted me to explain the proper spelling. Up until then I didn't realize this was a poetry site....actually, many times I still forget when checking out the blogs.

    Isn't there enough trouble/s in this fantastic world without having to add to them here. C'mon poets, let your words do the talking within the rules, and allow common sense to adhere to these rules and ALLOW poetry to be the winner. Not I'm better than you, or what ever ridiculous policies that have become apparent. Let us adults stand up and be counted, and allow the children on the Soup, to learn from us adults. I rest my case, forever :)

    •Sexually Explicit (X-Rated) Language •Personal Attacks, Battles, or Slamming Soup Members (Do not use a member's name in poems or comments - unless it is positive!!!) "•Profanity (Curse Words or Abbreviated Curse Words) •Nasty Comments (E.g. "This is CRAP!!!") •Vulgarity •Hateful Expressions (E.g. "I should have killed her") •Racism" as per your home page. Er, Occultism??? What do you see as occult and what occult poetry would you delete? I find it odd that you would disallow poetry that may be considered occult & yet allow poetry that is violence inspired --- bang bang, I shot her down.... and as far as spats go, its part of being human and (unfortunately) some PROVOKE intentionally.
