Personal attacks via Private Messages

There might be a misguided belief that anything in private messages is outside the rules of the site. This is NOT true. If you feel you are being attacked via private message and since such is supposed to be private that you have no recourse you are Wrong. ANY attack by one member on another no mater where it happens is against site rules. So if ANYBODY here is being attacked or harassed by another member via Private Messages , just contact any AC member by way of The contact newport tab beneath the Resources tab or via PM to any Admin. council. Or even ME.

Amazing video of young Nigerian poets.

This is fantastic, I cried at the beauty, power and pain of it.
18 minutes well spent. Please watch it and tell me what you think. Have tissues handy.

Aussie bushfires.

It's fucking terrifying, folks. Imagine living in New York and seeing burning ash from forest fires falling on Broadway. Difficult to breathe for the elderly in the middle of the city. People are dying miles from the fires.

Most of us are not in direct physical threat of being burnt, it is our air that is being burnt.

Please join me in congratulating Geezer for winning the December contest. Below is his poem:

What A Trip!... [December Contest]

I was jack of all trades, master of few
but I worked real hard most times
I've had three wives, three boys too
Had some accidents, that rang my chimes

My body's wrecked from habits now
I loved cigarettes and weed
I've survived, I don't know how
Always running at full speed

December Competition

As there are only six poets so far entering the December competition..
Can I claim second place, it is getting cold here and a cruise would warm me ups..
Not sure how many members we have that are active at this moment.
But I hate winning even second without any competition..
So please for the next week can we have some poems put on site to make me work harder.
If not I shall have to go back to writing greeting cards.
All of you have a great new year filled with many poetic dreams..
Yours, Ian T Howard and family..
