Amy King's censorship of my essay backfired as I've literally had HUNDREDS of more people reading the essay as a result!

Here is the partially censored version, click HERE

Here is the WHOLE ESSAY, recently republished by Daniel Bradley of FHOLE in Canada (THANK YOU Daniel Bradley! FINALLY, someone who ACTUALLY PRACTICES FREE SPEECH INSTEAD OF JUST TALKING ABOUT IT!), click HERE

The irony seems to be completely lost on Amy King. This was an essay about NOT ALLOWING abuse of power through political correctness, and WHAT DID SHE GO AND DO!? She viciously attacked Dorothea Lasky mere days after Dorothea's first book AWE was published, and when I attempted to write about Amy's attack, siting Amy's words with links to the public list she posted them on, she used all her muscle to get me shut down, censoring the editors of DIM SUM, and censoring me on the Buffalo Poetics List when I attempted to let readers know what she had done to us! The IRONY of ironies of course is that Amy's original attack against Dorothea Lasky was ON THE BUFFALO LIST! Not only does Amy wield her Politically Correct weapons, but also her seat as moderator of the Buffalo List, doing what she wants, attacking who she wants, and NEVER allowing anyone to challenge her abuses!

"Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in
itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime."
--Potter Stewart

The publication of DELIRIOUS HEM's DIM SUM happened about 24 hours ago. In that short period of time two poets I wrote about went on a campaign to have the part of my text which referred to their slanderous, abusive behavior extracted from the site.

THIS is the site as it is:

But for those who believe in FREE SPEECH, and would like to see the FULL TEXT, just write to me at, and you will receive the text in the body of the e-mail, in full.

Most sincerely,
