JJ, I know you weren't addressing me. However, I purposely addressed my comments to you because there was that time when you got upset because I disagreed with your critique of someone's poem and advised the author not to follow your advice. You took it personally then, even to the extent of starting a thread about it. I was afraid that you might have the same reaction this time.JJWilliamson wrote: ↑Wed Feb 20, 2019 1:30 pmPerry, for goodness sake, I was not addressing you at all.
My comments are for Luke to consider, and when I give my opinion it is just that: an opinion. You are entitled to your pov and I see you've expressed it in the said thread several times, so please resist the temptation to leap in as if you were the last word on everything. If you, even for a second, believe that I would discourage somebody from employing meter then you're simply not thinking clearly.
I'm also beginning to wonder if you're doing this sort of thing on purpose, because you're frequently displaying antagonistic tendencies which smack of baiting.
I did read the thread but when I wrote my critique I never gave you a thought.
I'm displaying antagonistic tendencies? Perhaps you should explain that. I'm opinionated, yes, but I don't see myself as antagonistic.
(I'll be back in about eight hours.)
