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.
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.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
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.
