|Apparently they need to look at their own life. You've been nothing but productive here and good to me these yrs that I've known you. I love you and appreciate all that you've done. Ignore those who cast stones. You're a good dude and btw, I LMAO when I read your accoplishments on your bio page. Too cool. I also removed mine awhile back. Just trying to live life.
Love, Janet xoxoxo

|I haven't read much of your work. But, I would say hang in there. It seems you have a lot of members in your corner that's counting on you to stay. You're probably a little angry right now. Give it some thought. Think about it.|

|Sketchman, please don't leave us. Ron, say it just ain't so.
We need you. You're our bread of life, its veritable dough.
The opinion of one lousy member? One considerably less than Holy ?
The majority say is wrong. That is 100%, completely and wholly !

|Hello Ron, i've just returned here after a month and you say you're going...PLEASE MY FRIEND, dont leave because you bring color to poetry, you bring laughter to your verses, you write with simple honesty and jest, and obviously, YOU ARE A CARING PERSON. Therefore Ron, you make us happy and inspired by just reading your works and comments. So, please STAY.
Love and hugs from your friend in the Philippines,

Please ((DO NOT)) leave because some arse has
Belittled your writings or pictures!!!!!! Everyone
Here that has remarked to you has been targeted
Here at the Den and other sites (I assume).
What the Hell is this person reading the WHOLE
Poem if she/he are such a goodie two shoes anyway!
If she/he forgot to click his/her poem in the
HOLIER THAN THOU poems, perhaps we should all
Jump on them? If they are not willing to ((FORGIVE))
anyone whom has forgotten to click the right rating than
That is their problem for CONTINUING the read!!!!
There are bigger problems to worry about than someone
whom forget to rate a poemÖgawdÖwe all do that!
Your writings have always given us joy to read
And the since of humor is a great get away from
Life. Donít let this one person disrupt your writings
You are dearly respected by so many here at
The Den, Dear Friend.

|No Ron, this is not right. You would allow the ONE to stop you from doing what you enjoy doing? Why would you punish all of us for what one has said or done? Who get hurt most of all? You, because you are allowing ONE person's opinion to cut you short. Please think about this and come back when you are ready. We are all here waiting for you. Until then I for one will miss you......
God bless and always be safe,

|Ron dear,As for someone calling you unproductive or whatever, don't evengive them a minute of your time, they probably resent your talent for both art and weiting! However, please think this over. I think you jumped the gun. with the new rating system the main board is used only for g-pg ratings so that families and kids can read. we all have to use the rating system, that's why they have it ;-) so please don't feel singled out, many use the R board when they write R rated stuff.There's nothing wrong with that. luv ya hon please come back!smooooooooooch!

|do you enjoy writing, drawing, and sharing here? thats all that matters...|
|Reviewed by John Leko
|...an artist creates what he sees...perhaps you could sketch a vivid drawing of what you now see before these words you pen...you have been more than a positive friend of my writing. How can I take art and see it as un-Holy...perhaps nails within ones hands might be considered un-Holy also. ...and then again maybe because we are soon reminded of Easter...that one or many...have chosen...to cross you...and leave us hanging. ...your art and lifes humor have brought me laughter in a sometimes dulled mind...and a wrongly righteous world...in which you also deserve a place.
my best artistic acceptance...

|Ron please reconsider this, I know some folks can get to you at times, just erase their comments and do what you do best. Please don't take away from us because of someone else. You are part of our family and we would hate to see our family seperate. We look forward to what you share with us as Jackie says hang in not up.
Love ya Ron, Newfie Hugs, Rose

|Ron, dear...Nope...won't have it! You will not cow-tow to others. I just don't understand the communication from AD...the "unproductive" word? What's "productive" and what's "unproductive", anyway? If they want you to put clothes on some o' the kids, SAY SO! Now my feelings are hurt, 'cause I've never received communication on how *productive* I am :oP OK, so a posting where an author inadvertedly hits *G* rather than *R* before submitting may seem inappropriate to the powers, but a simpler, and more kind, notification would be "Would you please change your rating on 'such-and-such' article/poem/story to a more appropriate 'PG-13' or 'R'. We would prefer that you make this change than our webmaster. Thank you."
I just checked, and there is a line that reads "Please rate your work for your readers! | No Adult Material", but what is meant by Adult Material? Maybe AD would make that statement, N-A-M, clickable with an explanation so that we'd ALL know.
Hang in there, Ron...rather than hang-up.

|Hi, Ron. I almost feel inadequate to write to you as I have been quite 'unproductive' myself as far as reading and reviews go. But life happens. Sometimes for extended periods of time. I hope that you and everyone else understand. But enough about me. Screw the jerk! You bring so many of us so much joy...remember that! Don't let them take away something that brings YOU joy.|

|Well well well.....I finally have two minutes to read and my man is walking away. Kidding.....hey there sketchman, I had to stop in and tell you that although I rarely make comment I do read what you write. You is a great artisan and I lurve ya to pieces..... don't let the big old establishment ruin your fun...just go right on doing what you is doing, heck what's ya got to lose. I will miss you and you know I will pout crocodile tears if you go....so consider staying and continue to write....I am still around and watching you. Oh yeah, and I have a bone to pick with you..... I still have the same email address I have had for years...don't be a stranger...just cause I am bad at communication doesn't mean you have to be....hugs and smoooooooooooooooooches......trickster!|

|Ron I just don't get it, you are such a strong man. You know, sometimes these things are just a little bump in the road. Why not just take a chill out, go write some fantastic stuff, draw those amazing pictures and then come back gang busters, to heck what they think, listen to all your friends. I agree with them all, and I also know that because you are a strong person leaving feels like the right thing..but then they have gotten what they wanted in the first place. Just do what your heart says, but listen very carefully....Weigh the positives and negatives, and I am sure there will be way more positives than negs....
I will miss you dearly,
Much peace, love, and light to you my sweet dear friend,

As one of those you've sketched, who you've helped, please don't go. I'm a Christian; if something offends, I don't judge; I just don't read (and really, really try not to comment). Am I perfect? Nope. Never have been, never will be. I'm forgiven, by Grace, alone. Do I sin? Yep. If I said I didn't, that would be lying. I try not to judge (again, being human, I sometimes do), try to treat others the way I want to be treated. Have you offended me? NOT AT ALL. Usually get a big ole guffaw out of sour puss me - your talent is needed here. Please reconsider - and know you're in my thoughts and prayers.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *Smoooooooooch*

Who gives a rat's behind what some say? You think we all don't have to deal with that at times? Tell AD to block a particular person, it should help! Besides - you can't just leave, man! We need you here.

I hope you truly reconsider. Most of us at one time or another have been branded, attacked, degraded and generally made to feel unappreciated here either through the system and sometimes even by our peers. It is painful and hurtfull but when it has happened to me I have gone back and read the words of the other writers on the den who I truly respect and that is where I find the true justification for my work and for my being here.
You are a talented artist and poet and I for one, and I know a lot of others would truly miss you if you go, so again, I humbly ask that you reconsider...

I don't know what to say...well I do!
You are a person of individuality & there is no amount of financial reibursments that can afford a productive heart. Now we are all adults here & you should have used an "R" ? Gee what is a person to do when they have an err? I am not offended by that-or the lack of a needed "R" I would think someone else is the one with the issue. Adversity is everywhere & be the power of control & don't let them have yours!
Now am I allowed to cuss like a truck driver? Or a sewer rat? Humm.......productive is personal thing. I love to garden....some people may find that not so productive...actually I also try landscaping my yard for "Curb Appeal"...I am very bad at it & have "Curb Disturb"......oh well.....My Emotions Matter & Yours Should Do What YOU Want Always 1st & Foremost!!
