This job is boring
filling your nooks and crannies
But I`ve got a man

Umm...OK?
Say, this is neat; if you leave the haiku`s window open, it changes automatically after a few seconds. Dynamic on-line haiku!! Cool!

Quite the contrary, INFZ. Anywhere there is open discussion (forums) and difference of opinion (diverse membership), arguments are bound to ensue, although one could get away with saying I do my part to start them.

My understanding of English is not what is preventing me from understanding your point, Bekll. Let`s look at your quote once again.

"I`m just saying the site said that in response to your saying that it didn`t bother mentioning it - it did."

The first and last occurence of `it` is refering to the website, obviously. However, what is the second? Surely you are not refering to my saying that the website didn`t bother mentioning any haiku without a 5-7-5 count is still a haiku, because then you`d be contradicting yourself having already agreed with me:

"Anything without a 5-7-5 count is NOT a haiku is what the site is implying."

My argument is logical and outlined as is. Any disambiguation you want from it has to result from your explaining what you meant in the first quote above in terms of the second `it`.

Vague to you. If you can`t understand simple English then take an English course.

I don`t overuse the word "it". Only word I`m known to overuse is "that" - childhood habit.

gorgeousplan, tell me you didn`t think I meant that as a "good arguing point". Call me a jerk if you want, but be sure it`s for the right reasons.

"That`s grammatically correct. If you can`t understand it, than I can`t help you. Your loss."

It may be gramatically correct, but with your vague overuse of "it", the sentence is ambiguous. I don`t imagine people accusing you of poorly wording an argument are taking issue with your grammar, Bekll.

You`re the one confusing me. I think you keep contraditing yourself. Either that or I can`t "read between the lines" or what you`re saying.

You should make yourself clearer. Anyway, yes... what I was saying is that I AGREE with you in regards to what is a haiku and what is not. But to what the site says... that`s another matter we should just DROP.

The only way your point makes sense to me is if you thought I was referring specifically to the website`s criteria when I wrote:

"...small deviations in syllable count don`t necessarily disqualify a haiku as a haiku. The website didn`t bother mentioning that."

I was referring to all forms of the haiku, but perhaps you see that now.

"Anything without a 5-7-5 count is NOT a haiku is what the site is implying. I, personally, as stated earlier, do not agree with that."

Thank you for seeing things my way! Reference my first post in here and you`ll see that was my point all along.

"I`m just saying the site said that in response to your saying that it didn`t bother mentioning it - it did."

No... the website didn`t bother mentioning that anything other than what it accepts as a haiku can still be a haiku. I said nothing about the site not mentioning what syllable counts it accepts.

"Have fun now."

Only if you keep posting in confusion..

I`m trying to make you realize that what YOU are saying doesn`t make sense. I can make enough sense out of it to correct. Just as a paper with grammar and spelling mistakes can be corrected.

If you`re up for a good laugh just read what you write. Have fun now.

"You missed my point. You said the website did not bother mentioning about syllable count for haikus. I SHOWED you that indeed it did - it was written down on the page for submitting haikus (i.e. the rules)."

Ah ah, what did I say? I said that deviations in syllable count do not disqualify a haiku as a haiku. What does the website say? It says haikus must be in 5-7-5. If you`re saying that the website either explicitly or implicitly stated that anything without a 5-7-5 count is a haiku, you would be wrong, because it doesn`t.

"Now stop disagreeing with me when what you say doesn`t even make sense."

It`s clearly not making any sense to you, otherwise you`d stop replying. Keep going, though, it`s at least good for a laugh.

Yes... I purposely took a statement you said out of context to show you that it was misguided.

You missed my point. You said the website did not bother mentioning about syllable count for haikus. I SHOWED you that indeed it did - it was written down on the page for submitting haikus (i.e. the rules).

I don`t agree that a haiku is ONLY a haiku if it is 5-7-5. I`m just saying the site said that in response to your saying that it didn`t bother mentioning it - it did.

Now stop disagreeing with me when what you say doesn`t even make sense.

"Overmann, *sighs*, I am sick and tired of you always arguing pointlessly with whatever I say."

What are you, on the rag? I don`t argue with everything you say... just most things you type. Kidding. I only reply to things you say that I disagree with or feel could use my input.

You took my statement out of context. It was referring to the fact that small deviations in syllable count do not disqualify a haiku as a haiku and that the website didn`t bother mentioning this. That`s it. It`s a shame, too, as they`re limiting their inventory for good haikus.

From website:
"Submitted haiku is screened before it gets added to Haiku-o-Matic, so be sure that it adheres to the five/seven/five syllable format unless you want some of our hired goons to come `round and "explain japanese poetry to you", if you know what I mean."

The website talks about the "standard haiku" yet it makes no mention of what the standard content usually is. Haikus traditionally present an observation (of nature, of human behavior, something) and invoke emotion and thought with strong descriptions of imagery. I don`t feel particularly moved by any of the random haikus that site has to offer (those that I`ve read).

Bekll, small deviations in syllable count don`t necessarily disqualify a haiku as a haiku. The website didn`t bother mentioning that. For example, here is my favorite poem by Natsumi Soseki (if anyone knows the name of this one, please tell me):

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow

Syllable count is 5-6-5, but it`s still a haiku.

My criterion for haikus is the brevity of three lines and the absence of rhymes. (I personally prefer haikus with the content I described, but those without such are still haikus, in my opinion.)

I entered a few I`ve written in the past - not bad ones, btw.

One haiku had a six syllable line for the third line.
