I delete tons of things on my webmail... I have almost nothing saved now... so NOW it tells me that I'm using more space than I have *ever* used.
People on automatic writer praise the silliest things.
I wasn't expecting praise for what I wrote, it just stuns me what gets the "ooh, that was good" responses, especially given the forum and what it is *supposed* to be about.
Every now and again there is something that breaks from the usual formula and is really impressive, but usually it's just some sap ass love poem that's repeating what's been said better by a billion other people.

Poetry is rarely about love, in my opinion...
well, good poetry anyway.

I *like* the concept of automatic writer.
I really love the free and easy, don't think about it, let it flow, ride the words, rambling thought is your friend concepts involved.

I wish more people would pay attention to them. UNLEASH your subconscious on the world.

So that's what that is!

I came across that the other day and given the name "automatic", in my geek mode, I assumed it meant that the poems were generated by some CGI program somewhere.

I'm not sure if that makes the poems more interesting or less. They failed the Turing Test when I looked at them :)

hehe.. I'm sure some of them might be.
There are cut ups and so forth there too, but most of the people posting there just don't understand the concept, though it is very clearly written out.
