    Not really, I respect their opinions and I like getting suggestions and criticism.. shows me what I may lack in and ways I can improve so I can change and become a better writer as I go along and maybe try different techniques.

    I can admit that I may get a little upset if I get all negative feedback on something i wrote that may have been a favourite or something really personal to me, but I get over it quickly.. all a matter of opinion. lol.

    Haha. This is a funny thread...

    I agree with Mind~Soul... what bothers me the most is the 'this was cool' comments... which means someone glance at it most likely.

    But I've gotten completely ridiculous negative comments before... one time this kid was mad at me for beating him in the RSTL that he said something about how I was 'trying' to use imagery, but didn't, and it was a weird rhythm and shit...

    But I would like to state that feelings are feelings, poetry is poetry. The two ae not the same. What starts out as good feelings (not necessarily positive, but powerful perhaps)makes bad poetry most of the time... people don't think about the craft which sounds kinda cheesy, but its true. 99.99% of song lyrics woul not be considered even halfway decent poems... stream of conciousness, abstract, formal schemes... all of these things are not something that you can just toss into a poem to make it experimental, or traditional, and unconditionally good, they are tools to work with.

    But yea, as far as the question (sorry for going off on that tangent), nah, not yet at least, not here. I've had some really bad ones at a more serious board, by people who are consistantly horribly negative. good critiques are really hard to come by here, I haven't had one yet... but I'm looking forward to it.
