why do you care about  this rating business? are you a grade of meat? just being liked here means nothing in the real poetry world. it just means someone liked your story, mostly. hardly anyone here cares if the poetry works on the gut level of getting the reader out of mind-plot crap and into the world of physical nature. which is what poetry does -- it makes the reader dance with the poem. most of these frozen people don't want to show that much emotion: they like their emotion canned and safe, packaged as stories they can have a happy-face/sad-face about and feel entertained and 'thoughtful' and 'touched'. they touched alright. it's what they do next that shows their talent and brilliance: if they need to write a poem to respond and express, then they're poets. if they need to get a snack, they're just consumers looking for a buzz. you don't need decadent buzz-heads to write for.

ratings actually mean less than nothing. Multiple IDs - who would have thought?
"and It gives me great pleasure to award myself 10!"

Yes, well, very well done ME!

they want the awards because it makes them look attractive to narcissistic boys or girls. feed-back loop high.
