Dear Z, thanks for your feedback -- it's a true honor to have someone in your capacity and experience joining us -- welcome aboard!

This is done so any further interaction around this poet, such as future favorites by other members or comments posted on its work, will be communicated to the originated member. I hope that helps, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work posted...
