So Rus doesn't know you're dumping him then?

Crudely put, Brian.
I have been having discussions with Rus. He's aware of what we are proposing.

Lois P Jones is emuse! well congragulations to her! i'm a great admirer of her poetry - i remember reading an excellent one of her's on the juggler in paris - & wondered why it was never nominated - similarly some of her other poems - excellent stuff.

i remember well reading this particular one as well - right here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11335

winning or losing hardly matters - it's the taking part that's important.

if you opt out - it's like admitting defeat - a question of 'sour grapes' - call it what you will. we all know where 'superiority complexes' spring from. of course i'm very new here but personally i feel that way - because i care. i enjoy reading the poems here - some excellent stuff.

but the judges are only human - if sometimes they overlook - or make good / not so good judgements - it's all in the game & should be taken sportingly - not to participate would be very unsporting. that is my opinion.

if one wins or loses - wins after 10 years - or not - should hardly be the issue. i do however feel this forum could be more conducive to creativity & not scenting blood all the time! if all the judges & critics were like some here - we would never have such a vast variety of poetry with so many different styles & sensibility. - to enjoy, study, entertain, philosophise, ponder etc etc.

i think the IBPC are doing a great job in the greater interest of poetry.

a) the debate about this should have occurred in the poetry discussion section, where I posted it.
b) it's not a matter of winning or losing. No one was interested. How many poems have you nominated, rushme?

tut tut! brian - look who's foaming at the mouth with insults -

sorry ros - must have missed that - wrong place

lack of interest might be related to...well it is a relative thing.

i was under the impression newcomers can't nominate
