I am going Hub Hopping and I would say 70% of the hubs are poetry. Now I like poetry, I even have one poem myself on Hubpages, but should poetry really be on here?
sort by best latest
This is the perfect answer. I agree with this.
There may be some truth to what you're saying here. Even if few people want to hear it. Perhaps hubpages could make another site, or a subdomain on this site for everyone to upload poetry too? it would make quite a collection/anthology.
paxwill.... what makes you assume that all poetry is idled? I have written several poems an all of them are published.
Oh, Freddy, when you're ready, please rethink your blinkered stance, open up your world to poetry, to magic and romance!
I did my share of poetry study in college ... and that was about all I needed. It's just not my thing. Unless you count dirty limericks as "poetry." :D
Ha ha! It certainly won't help when you have a mad woman spouting a terrible verse at you! Quite understand.
I don't think they have thought about preventing them or ever will, I just don't think that HP is the best venue for them.
