Wayyyy too generous.
We are pleased to bring you a new poetry site: Lulu Poetry, www.poetry.com. Lulu Poetry is about winning prizes and recognition for your poems, creating and selling beautiful books of your poetry, and learning tips and tricks from other enthusiastic poets just like you.
Whether you write poems for your own enjoyment or to entertain and educate others, Lulu Poetry is for you. We'll be handing out prizes to poems selected as winners by the hundreds and thousands of poets who are part of the poetry community. When you win we'll send you a certificate for you to print and hang on your wall to remind everyone of your accomplishment - along with a cash prize.
So whether you are quietly writing poems in the northern woods, or are part of a English class studying and learning poetry, you can use Lulu to compile your works for your audience. You may want to sell your poetry to the world, or just create a poetry book as a class fundraiser for the parents of your students. Lulu makes publishing your poetry easy and inexpensive.
Keep in mind this is only version 1.0 of Lulu Poetry. We will be adding great new features and improvements weekly to better serve Poets and lovers of Poetry everywhere, so bookmark www.poetry.com* and visit often!

*Lulu.com, an award winning Internet company, recently purchased the URL "www.poetry.com" from the previous failed business that owned it.
According to their press release, Lulu has aggressive plans to completely revamp Poetry.com and bring it under the Lulu brand. The site will be renamed to Lulu Poetry, and will be targeted to poets who want to connect with their peers and have access to resources to receive reviews and feedback on their poetry as well as recognition, contest prizes and helping them publish their work.

The poems are still available on-line, as long as you know how to search for them. I found my wretched poem about spam that I posted there to get NeoPoints or something.Heh. Looks like Lulu bought the whole Watermark Media package, including poets.com, poem.com, and picture.com. I'll make a note of the latter in that thread, too.
It is with regret that I announce that this morning, a friend of mine received a spam email from Poetry.com. We'd thought the scam was finally dead, but it's risen from its grave.
