Author has written 140 stories for Haiku, Life, Love, Humor, General, Family, and Nature.
I have been posting poetry on fictionpress for the past 7 years.
Recently, the site has implemented a policy which enables links to commercial sites based on words inside a story published on the site.
Whilst I can understand that ads are necessary to support fictionpress which after all provides a free space for publishing our work, I also find that my work belongs to me, and that linking commercial sites to any word inside my poems entirely without my consent as to the link or the content of the linked site, is inappropriate, and it offends me. This has now happened three times - and as they say: three strikes, you're out.
I have therefore decided with much regret that as of today, 8 February 2013, I shall no longer use fictionpress for my poetry. I will try and update readers such as there are on any new site that I may find and that treats my work with more respect.
