What the...!

Can anyone tell what the purpose of listing so many so called Famous Poets if you're not going to list any of their poems? This is one of those little things here that make no sense.While I'm at, why is it almost impossible to post blobs from my DROID? I'm not allowed to use the full range of options that are available on the PC.Poetrysoup it's time to get in line with technology.Okay, that's the end of my rant. It's just one of those nights driving at one a.m and everything has been going wrong since the break of day. As I write this I'm receiving an overweight ticket for my rig.

    The PoetrySoup Famous Poets section is an educational source of information and inspiration. Here you will find famous poets of our time and times past. We are expanding this site daily so that each poet's section will contain information about his or her writings, and poems written by the poet. There are many poets who have achieved world wide recognition for their talent. We hope to maintain a resource of those poets and their poems – if possible. If we are missing a famous poet, please tell us so we can add him or her.

    Michael. I am not sure what famous poet thing you are talking about. And I don't know anything about Droids and such. I got a chuckle that you said "post blobs" Rant away. My hubbie has a horrible trucking life. No vacations/ no decent insurance/ no 401 K/ no promises kept to him. I'll rant right along with ya!!!
