Courtesy


Strictly speaking, I should post this message in Salon Chat, posted in the thread, Board Business. From experience, I get that a few, some, many members pay scant attention to that thread. Not a problem. But the issue is important enough so that I want what I got to say to be read by as many members as possible.

Aside from issues of civility, Delectable Mnts has few rules. No one is even required to comment on other poems posted in order to post one of their own. Nor is a poet or writer required to respond to every comment made on something she posts. That said, the board operates on the principle of quid pro quo, you get what you give.

So in the end commenting on the work of others isn't just a courtesy, even though it is, responding to a comment on something, poem or prose, an author posts isn't just a courtesy either, even though it is. It is kind of a matter of self-interest. You get what you give.

As board owner I feel duty bound to comment on everything creative. Operatively it is a pleasure, since, I'm a poetry and prose whore. Sometimes it is a drag. Board's 2 admins are not required to do the same. Nor are other members.

Still, courtesy does ask for certain rules of engagement. At least, that is what I got from Castiglione.

Re: Courtesy


A gentle reminder: I want to emphasis that in addition to commenting on the work of others, please don't forget to acknowledge the comments others have made on your work. As Tere points out, you don't have to do this every time, and you don't have to agree with the comments made, but a simple thank you for the time someone spent reading and commenting on a piece is always appreciated.

Okay, climbing down off my soap box now. emoticon
