my apologies for anyone reading my poem Mandy to have to read the abuse left by another poet.   I have reported the matter.

i have been writing a few  silly Limericks to try and deflect the time of year it is, my Tad died in Jan 2012 and last year was his last xmas with us.  Wont let just one person stop me writing.

Thanks for listening...Seren

Hi Seren did not read your poem Mandy but would like the opportunity, listen not to the nay sayers they know nothing and to cause trouble is there only happiness, happy new year to you, all the best Owen

It's sad that situations happen like this to such wonderful and lovely people/poets on the Soup. At least I know that Seren and the other fantastic poets whom this has happened to in the past are much taller in the stature of decency. I reciprocate Harry's request of it being re-posted. <*> Happy New Year Seren, have a fantastic 2013 :)

I got a chance to see the poem and the a$$hole's comment. just block him honey or he will be apt to do it again, if you block him he will never be able to leave a comment on any of your work, and any previous comments he made would "poof" go away. Happy New Year Seren, sorry you had an encounter with one of the undesirables of the soup, luckily they are few and far between

Hiya sass not to worry the world will keep spinning love. It's a horrible time for you the first anniversary of your dads death, I promise it does get easier and that is from experience love. Never let a Little a***wipe stop you writing. I believe there has been a few complaints go in, and thanks to all that did complain. Just block him if he is not removed and causes trouble. Sleep well love and forget it xx
