We hope everyone is doing well amid this worldwide pandemic. We encourage you to listen to the authorities and even perform self-imposed quarantines if possible. Even though you may not be in the high-risk groups, please be considerate of others in your level of exposure. 

If you are bored...write more poetry.

Hi Mark, again, because I cannot post my own blog, I thought you wouldn't mind if I posted this information here. There is a video on youtube called "The Science Behind the Coronavirus" presented by Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, and posted by the Los Angles Times. He speaks of the molecular composition of the molecule called corona virus. It contains important information everyone should know. The molecule is protected by a layer of greasy substance, get rid of the grease and the molecule dies. period. I suggest using Dawn dish soap to wash your hands and even your face and all substances in your home. Everyone should hear this video. I hope you don't mind. Hugs, Catie :)

I can't post a blog right now, Mark, so I would like to take this opportunity to say that I do hope and pray that you and all of the PoetrySoup team are safe and healthy. Of course those are my same hopes for all the poets, old and new, here at the soup.

As I mentioned in my original comment below there are more things going on right now that our collective attention deserves. I shall suspend hostilities as an act of goodwill and ask others to do the same. This virus will cause more bankruptcies and kill more businesses and livelihoods than it will people and right now that is where my focus is. Keep safe all. This is the greatest threat to our world since The Nazis marched through Europe. I hope we all respond the way our parents and grandparents did.

I deleted my comment. In willingness to be a 'genuine' peacemaker, I didn't want anything written beneath my message to be taken out of context and considered to be hateful words. There's been too much false accusation of that already.

Thank you Mark. These are indeed trying times. I waited to comment because I wanted to see just how far this would go. I think everyone should reread these comments and see just how childish this has become. The world economy is on the verge of collapse. People are dying from an invisible microbe. Before it has finished maybe millions of people will have died. Children losing parents, grandparents families altered forever. For once in your lives think about someone other than yourself. This is probably the most catastrophic event of this century. Wake up. These petty squabbles are ridiculous.

The most sensible thing I've heard here Daniel - btw, I'm back home up north - weird out there - we must be strong, resolute, sensible and logical, not panic and take care of ourselves and each other and be extra cautious of those who would use this as an evil way to take advantage of those who are too easily taken advantage of. If everyone takes care of those around them all will be much better. Certainly nothing is served by doing otherwise. Take care of yourself and all you love and care for.

We as poets write about love and peace yet we act like we do not even know what the words mean. Everybody get a grip on reality. In case you guys don't know, some of us are probably going to get sick and possibly die. Don't let your last words to someone be hateful. What a load to carry.

Mark, did a lovely blog to wish everyone well during the pandemic and some turned it into a place to bicker back and forth, get a grip, there are people dying from this Virus and some of you are caught up in trading insults on things that are of little importance in the scheme of things happening in the world _Constance

You can't name names here? Then why bring it up at all? It is divisive. Can you please privately send me a list of all those you've deemed "TBP" ? You and I were in agreement about defending Plato, and now you hail his main agressor. So I'm a bit confused.

Catie, you have been around PS for a while, and I know you have seen enough to know the truth. Upon my arrival at PS, you were a TBP sympathizer and you have remained consistent over the years with this. I speak out against TBP when they abuse someone, but my words are not causing division or driving peeps away from this site, TBP are. Like I mentioned elsewhere, this issue is bigger than any one person, or any one incident. This issue is real, valid, systemic and complex. It is not simply someone being offended. It is abuse, the cycle of which is apparent to anyone wanting to see the truth.

I don't get it Rob. I have hardly been here at all in more than a year. I have only a handful of friends here, most of them are gone now, and the ones that remain I will stand by them as being people with integrity. Because people are so unique and different from each other, people are often misunderstood. Someone may be offended. But I will tell you to give up on labeling them and blaming them when it is all YOUR talk that is causing division among the poets.

Catie - it was Robert Lindley. TBP = The Beautiful People. Soupmail can be monitored as well. Some of your friends know the details, it is best to ask them at this point. My only advice, remember what they tell you and see if it is congruent with what you see happening around the site.

Catie - They are TBP after the Marilyn Manson song of the same name. It fits the predacious personalities among us. And naming them, come on, you think I would get myself banned so easily. Those that care, know the names. About the can of worms, I didn't open it, it was smashed open after your friend hit Robert over the head with it.

Date: 3/19/2020 11:33:00 PM
Becca, you should not be surprised that I am in the mix. I have resisted TBP since joining in 2014 and befriending Plato. As far as referencing Beatrice, among TBP, she was one of the most dynamic and intelligent, typical qualities that make a leader. Keith's potential false flag op reminded me of her.

He used to call a poet here "Beatrice" for some reason, but I sure don't know why he brought her into this debate, that's what has me curious. (I took out her name to keep her privacy.)

Rob, it seems to me that you are opening up a big can of worms. You call them "the beautiful people"... Is it because they are not like you...I don't know. But now you are the man getting major publicity for knowing whom all the trouble makers are. Yet...you refuse to name them. Put it on the table or set it down. I have been around for a long...long time and for the life of me I cannot remember a Beatrice.....

I did not take offense at your 'mic drop' even if you were using it as a false flag. The aggressor in question has a history of being abusive. Though he has gotten better (pertaining to frequency), this was not his first time. Kinda like his hundredth. This is much bigger than just him and Robert. Bigger than us. Like I said, a history, a very long one. This why these blogs continue. So you see, this is part of life too, so I tell you the same thing you just said - Just deal with it.

Is that a maybe? No, I didn't see the offending comments but then some people take offence over the dumbest things. You took offence at my "mic drop" when I was just trying to lighten the mood and here we are. I don't suffer fools and I don't write endless blogs if I feel like someone has slighted me. Everyone plays the victim card these days. Just deal with it - it's called life.

You came to the defense of someone who couldn't even fake an apology. Either you did not see what he really said to Robert, or you assume the Robert was overreacting. All this still, as at least two others wrote farewell poems. And the history here, years of it, on and off.

Maybe back in the day, when Beatrice was here, Keith may have been writing the scripts covertly. But with this recent attack on Robert, Keith knew we would not buy that the script was from either of the other two, so he had to go overtly this time.

Thanks Mark, hope you and your family and staff are well too. I am sort of on self-isolation as of today because everything in my city of Ottawa, Canada is closed, even coffee shops, grocery stores, drug stores are still open. The Prime Minister is going to close Canada's borders (except the USA so trade can continue) and there will be no flights leaving Canada by Friday, if I understood his message correctly that is. But yes, we can write poetry all day long and I have a thousand things I can do also, I am stocked up with food and all my necessities and so I am ready to wait it out for now _Constance

It is pretty ironic to be labelled by folk who claim to be peace makers, perhaps you could deal with this as admin seem to be ignoring this . thanks Jan
