The title says it all. No explanation needed. One of our own is being cruelly attacked by others, and she needs our support.

~For Tinka With Much Love~

Lord, you see the pain and anguish on her tender face,
And because of what she's gone through, fear can't be erased.

She is being attacked, it causes her to cry;
Instead of joy, she feels like she wants to die.

Writers who don't know better are trying to destroy her self worth,
And to me they are nothing but low, true scums of this old earth.

Please let her know that you are by her side,
And YOU can take away the fear inside.

Put your Protecting Hand on Tinka this very day,
And let her know that You can take any pain away!

In Your Most Precious Name
I pray..Amen and AMEN!!


As always, your friend, Karen Lynn in America. :( (((((((HUGS)))))))

Thank you Karen you are an Angel for caring so much about me...and all my other dear friends....this whole thing has gone hopelessly toooo far....I don't want this one person removed from AD...he attacked me yes but "In good Spirit" or thats the way I saw was a constant friendly battle between two people and the third one misread us both...someone else took it
the wrong way and started to attack me by using my name leaving messages on his poetry....That I know for a's because I gave this person a second reply on our argument.......and this "Other" person used my "second" name to take revenge on me and used different names to keep the ball rolling.....But unfortunitly all those reviews and poetry has been removed...but I saved them all since day one in my libary...I am upset because this ruined a beautiful friendship that means the world to me....thats why I wrote the poem about my fantasies and reality...and this triangle of love....not a love affair...but pure let me put this straight....a big misunderstanding brought me pain...and not sure if it will be fixed soon..........but I still believe the person who two-timed me here will pay in the end.....but I will judge no one too soon..Thanks for your love Karen...I will feel better soon...okay!!

Can't the 'Powers that Be' on this website find out who this Troll is, even though he/she/IT does not leave a name, surely they can track this person somehow, there must be some trace, we all have to Login, do ordinary readers also have to Login? If so, it should be possible for the Tech section to find out who it is. Cowardly B-----d. Jackie <> <

I'm really baffled here. Who's attacking Tinka? Sorry I was away for a while and I didn't know about this, but I can see that Tinka is clearly very upset over this. I don't understand this. Who is attacking her?

Karen, What a kind caring heart you have.
Tinka, I am so sorry
that you have fallen
victim to such cruelness...

We all love to write
We share so much in
You would think that
a fellow poet would
be supportive...

Hugs to you both
Trixie :)

I don't know anyting about this but I now that none of my friends on authorsden would be a part of this as they are kind and loving folk. Tinka is someone I don't know real well but I do know she is an excellent poet with sence of humour and heaps of wit.
Tinka if you read this mate,know you are as welcome here as anyone else and so are your opinions.Cruelty is wrong always,everyones opinion on poetry subjects and poetry form is welcome in comment area...or should be....but no hits below the belt on personal levels are welcome on these pages.All should save personal feelings or dealings for private email or personal contact outside the den.
It is bad menners to attack an individual and make comments on any individuals personality or life.It is wrong to do,very wrong.
Anyone can lie about another,it is very cruel to do that and extremly unfair.
This palce is about poetry,the subjects of poems and the form/ format of them...we have the right to comment on this...not anything personal to do with any poets life or personality,especially cruel comments which name a poet.
Believe me...this sort of treatment of anyone can cause dire and very real agony to the person being attacked,death could result in those not strong enough to cope,ill health too certainly a result to victim of this sort of cruely.I have no idea of what is going on in Tinka's case but Tinka don't let anyone make you feel bad about yourself or your poetry,you are as worthwhile as anyone else here,keep writing and try to ignore the spite,truth will prevail in time and as long as you know your words are true and not cruel...that is all that counts,as long as you too are well mannnered to all
you should win out in end.
Best wishes
