Thread Name: BS: On the cowardly nature of GUEST postings
Subject: RE: BS: On the cowardly nature of GUEST postings
You know McGrath, et al. In your efforts to get your Mudcat friends to notice what clever rhymers you are, you are actually missing a lot of opportunities to actually communicate with some polite guests, who are trying to communicate with the members. I think they would like the members to understand they are feeling frustrated, alienated, and picked upon.

I can't fathom the reason why some of you keep taunting contributors like Guest, Ella and Guest, Satchel (who seem to be making a genuine effort to reach out to members) by ignorning their posts, then adding new rhymes/posts that are demeaning to them?

That sort of behavior of members is a large part of the problem for guest posters. A very vocal minority of the membership acts as if anyone posting as a guest, whether with or without a name, are a single, monolithic entity, rather than what we are: guests.
