Just once I'd like to read a post on flarf that said: "It's not my thing. I don't really dig it, but I'm glad it exists. Let a thousand styles flourish." Would that be so hard to say?

one last thought re. that old topic, Jonathan--Bishop, as I recall, gets the most pages of anyone in the 2nd volume of the new Norton Mod & Contemporary...stuff like that, along the very publication of this latest volume, is likely to establish her as a major poet for the forseeable future, whatever we might think of this.....

Speaking of rants, I wish people wouldn't sign their posts with only their first name. People generally come with at least a first and a last name for a reason. Anyway, just wanted to mention that the above, which is interesting and politely written and all, was not written by this Nick.

Yes. Just plain "Nick" is Nick Bruno? Or Nick somebody? "Nick Piombino" is Nick Piombino.

Your phrase in this post ("It's not my thing...") is exactly how I feel about Flarf. I don't enjoy reading Flarf but I do love how it seems to create such hostile attacks from people. It must be doing something right.

I'm pretty sure I've said something exactly like that. And when I did, people ignored me and go on sniping.

Jonathan dijo...

Good point. I'm sure others have said so too and nobody has noticed.

guilty of #1--I blame Blogger--but I usually sign my posts....is this really such a big deal? i mean, what if I had 10 avatars or something? what if I claimed to be Nick Piombino and got him in trouble? I was once accused of being Jacques Debrot under a fictional name....

Apparently it is too hard, yes. To all these folks I say: another big steaming helping of white male poetic agon, please.
