Vertical Breadcrumbs

Friable comorbitity poetry

Poetry web sites have the problem of too many people writing and not enough people reading. The idea is to have breadcrumbs added to a reader's cookies or whatever, as readers scroll down to reach the ends of poems. Only readers who have collected enough breadcrumbs can continue reading or writing.

This is clearly open to some abuse as a tracking tool, morbidly.

       This reminds me of Douglas Adams' idea for a computer whose function was to appreciate (not compose) music.   

       There's clearly a role here for bots which write appreciative comments on poetastery.
