Certainly not.  I didn't catch those...

If everyone sticks to talking about themself they're never going to  
be wrong. :)  Note below, how I speak about MY opinions and  
experience.  I guess I could be wrong, but BOY would it be a  
challenge for anyone (even me) to prove it.

I personally am split 50/50 on the issue right from the starting  
gate.  The way it stands, it's a pain in the butt for poems, great  
for tossing an email up on my wiki.  Which one I do more often was  
probably directly influenced by how easy it was to toss an email up  
on the list vs how hard it was to put a poem up :P  I haven't written  
many poems since I have been putting them online.  Even with PRE tags  
on static pages, it was too much of a pain.  So for the last 10 years  
I just haven't been writing many poems -- which is a real shame,  
because I was quite prolific for 20 years.

I need to implement the magic box theory so that I can just copy /  
paste them into a wiki.  That might get my creative juices flowing

I'm ok with that. :)
