Dealing with Personal Issues on Harriet
The following are some new comments on this article that have sparked off a lively exchange, one of the first really entertaining moments on Harriet for weeks.
So why do poetry people post comments on-line anyway, and why specifically on Harriet? What do they get out of it?
And what was learned from the Like/Dislike debacle that so decimated the comments? Why didn’t Harriet lose all of its regulars in the process, I mean in addition to the four of us who got banned? And why did those who stayed on stay on, and why were there among them an on-line activist like Terreson so opposed to Poetry Board mismanagement? Or a poet as battered as Gary B. Fitzgerald (-4 just yesterday!)?
And who else would you like to talk about?
