Subject: RE: BS: On the cowardly nature of GUEST postings
Some hide behind anonymity and shoot poisoned darts. I've met Thomas the Rhymer and although his off-the-cuff poetry is pretty bad, his guitar playing and singing are jaw-droppingly good. Thus regardless of the fact that "Thomas the Rhymer" is a pseudonym, he is not anonymous and, by the fact of showing up at at least one Mudcat Gathering, he puts his identity where his mouth is.

Poetry that rhymes can be pretty bad, but at least ... you can tell it's poetry.
