    Banned ? This is a test...

    Received a ban notice for copying my last post in case it blew up. I know it wasn't for using an ad blocker because I still get ads for blocking ads (lol).

    So, anyway this is a test... logging out didn't help and using a different browser didn't help... maybe an admin can help

    Oh, my. I remember when I was banned, it was when I posted something late in the night. During the day, no problem.
    If you want, try to send me the poem(s) through PM with indication in which thread you want them posted and we will try if that works.

    Thank you for the offer

    Even tried posting in a new thread, during daylight hours, today... no joy

    When I get around to it, there must be one here somewhere, I'll sheepishly ask a mod what transgression I made and ask forgiveness and serve my time... only a backlog of 3-poems from the Thursdays at Two poetry group. My worst fear is that our "Lol" poetry challenge will be blocked for me too... guess I'll find out about that when I come up with a poem

    Praying all is well,

    You're not "banned". Well, by me anyway and I'm the only Mod left

    I can't see what you're seeing.
    I can spend a lot of time guessing as to what is going on for you but realistically I have no idea.
    I don't pretend to know all things technical re: internet
    It is possibly a random / strange glitch, a conflict between outdated vBulletin forum software and current up to date browser Ad Blocking software. It could perhaps have something to do with the forum servers.

    I myself also sometimes get strange random glitchy things happening when I'm doing Mod things here in the forums and or behind-the-scenes. I have no hard and fast solutions or answers to what is happening to you, sorry!

    In any case, most of the time these glitches I experience resolve themselves after a period of a few days or so!

    Fingers crossed this stops happening for you!
    cheers,
    /Logos

    Thank you Logos... got your PM and replied and also found these posts

    Just got back from a day away and will try to post to the Nonsense poem thread once more and then jump back here (which seems to be working for me so far) if it doesn't work.

    re: Sancho - Yeah, my poetry and poetry-type stuff isn't exactly mainstream, lol.

    I tried to post my poems here in this thread and received the same notice... maybe the content ??? of seemingly innocuous poems and two links ??? Maybe if I imbed the post with some markup tricks ??? Experimenting... no luck... will not post here either using "quote" or "code".

    Hmmm... will continue to tinker.

    Ok... chopping up my original post and not including links...

    legend of the firebird

    no one knows from whence it
    came for ancient is the lore of
    when the firebird first appeared
    scouring the swampland and
    forests with flame - a relentless
    incandescence slaughtering
    and scattering what remained
    of tribes and families that day

    from the perspective of the
    firebird it was of necessity -
    a need to make a nest with
    which to brood her eggs in peace
    - soon hatchlings kept her busy
    in flight over great distances
    to feed her innocent little ones

    retribution, an invention of man,
    soon followed when a lone warrior
    returned to his ancestral grounds,
    steeling his courage he butchered
    the nestlings - using their remains
    to conceal himself as he sought to
    destroy their mother upon its return

    tears, amber-red, like an angry
    sun filtered through the eyes of the
    firebird in flight when the deceit was
    laid bare below her - and with the
    realization of the futility of striving
    with man she abandoned her nest
    and became lost once more to legend

    red are the waters that remain
    of the watershed whence these
    tidings came to pass - a testament
    to the tenacity of dour men, or per-
    haps the blood of innocents -+-*+

    Part 2...

    The next was from our Word Can from 5/16/2024 (with revisions):

    Word Can: grasp, access, experiment, confetti, fling, eggshell

    Youth: a series of experimental offenses


    Guess I was in another experimental phase of my teenage years,

    thus having absconded with some of the neighbor lady’s eggs

    after accessing her coop by hopping a backyard fence

    I found myself grasping an imagined Fabergé egg - when in truth

    just a bespeckled egg mostly bereft of its dregs

    hence I flung it into into the air and shouldered my dad's 30-06 with uncovered ears

    ... then BOOM! ha! bet you could of heard it all the way in Duluth!

    it littered the yard and my hair with eggshell confetti - and praise be - it wasn't my last youthful offense

    Part 3...

    My Word Can poem from 6/6/2024: salty, countdown, wings, quiet, pane, vague, total, asleep

    salty mouthed “too”

    an existence within a cage
    for a salty mouthed cockatoo is droll
    for one whose wings are clipped

    thus flight is impossible which is perhaps best
    for a window pane is a bird’s bane -
    no reason to be vague about it

    best to be quiet while the “too” is asleep
    for when the dog hears the mailman’s rattle
    the fan is hit without a countdown
