I am a senior second generation native Texan.  I've been writing poetry spasmodically since my teen years, but started online about 2003.  My other hobby is painting.  I am as fickle with painting as I am with poetry, trying different kinds.  I find PoetrySoup almost addictive, and have fallen in cyber love with some wonderful poet and poetry.

I received a soup mail from someone I never heard of saying they had read my profile and were impressed.  Can just any old body get into my profile?  They left an email address, but I am not going to reply.

Dear Sunlite, I think they meant your BIO. They're just phishing... Just troublemakers. We're impressed with you, you know us and that's al that counts. Have a wonderful weekend! Line xx

I just block those type of soup mail. First I click on their name and if they haven’t posted any poems they are usually fake.

Thank you, Richard, that's a good idea!

Some are spam, some are not - I've received both, (including one a couple of days ago from the head of faculty at U of Arkansas who is putting one of my poems to music for the Schola Cantorum Choir, and one a while ago from a prof at Bilkent U, Ankara, who used a poem of mine to teach a whole course around), but I just google them and check their background before I reply - you can usually check out the honest folks quite quickly. You can make some very valuable connections that way, and I've had a number, so I would say don't dismiss them too quickly, just research them a bit, (and their motives are usually apparent). Blessings!

Congratulations on the success that your work enjoys, Greg - well deserved. I usually ask for a LinkedIn address (if not already supplied) in their first correspondence, especially if they ask permission to translate a poem of mine. With SoupMail I'm a bit more cautious - there had been hackers in the past on this site. :)

It's more than likely Spam. Just ignore and delete any soup mail that you don't recognize or that seems odd. ~ Brandy
