While I knew posting the poem itself was a slight breach of netiquette (I should have just linked to it) I thought I was being helpful. It was good stuff, why not share the love right?
Well the other day I received this in my email (I'm only posting the highlights here).
So sorry. I thought people wrote things, then posted them on public websites because they wanted them to be read.Charles Rice? hmm?
Nope, I don't recall giving you permission to re-publish
[Snip]But, as a "writer" you
must know the big chunk of "you" that comes out and
onto the paper when you write something like this.
Now I realize that, as a "writer" the "you" that comes out on the page really just wants to be left alone.
Happy to oblige.
