Interacting On Poetry soup- Hello Soupers - This is suppose to be a great experience for me, but I am finding that people here read my stuff and never say say hello I was here. I have over 500 visits on certain poems and not One comment...what part of the game is that? Even if you hate the poem at least let me know you've read my work.  An I also want to thank the soup team members that chooses the best of my work, that was a great selection you all chose; Helps to narrow it down for book publishing.
Still I would like if you visit and read my work at least say "KILROY WAS HERE"

    Aww Vicki don't take Roy that way, we ALL SUCK at times, I have been writing daily!!! EVERY DAY since before 2001, I've written about 2000 poems at least 500? LOL have to suck. People don't point out my mistakes when I wait them I WISH THEY WOULD! To me seeing a mistake and not mentioning it to the writer is like letting a 'friend' walk around with toilet paper hanging out the back of their pants! Them don't tell you because they either WANT or don't care if you get embare arsed ;) Ten to 20 comments to others a day may get you 5 or 6 back.

    Hi, Vicky. Do you visit, read, and leave comments on other poets? Usually, if you comment on others Soupers, they return the courtesy. I don't think that TPS chooses our "best poems" ... (they dont even read them) in my case, the list includes the poems that have been fav. many times (also, the ones with more views). Have a great day.

    It happens to everyone, Vicki. Some of the views might not be from members in which case the person has no way to comment. But for the most part folks don't comment on a poem unless they like it enough to do so or if they "owe" you a comment (or if its a friend, I suppose). Sad, but true. Negative comments, even if helpful, are rare and even discouraged. Basically, I think that if I have a poem with a ton of views and no comments, it probably sucks. Others opinions might be different.

    This is extremely common here- if you do not comment, most people will comment a few times on your stuff then never again if you do not comment back; and I see this as good and bad. Take all with a grain of salt.

    That explains some of it ...Was not aware that just anyone could read my poems without identifying themselves.Thank you for feeling compelled to let me know I probably suck. lol
