When you post something, you are publishing it.  Just because it's a forum, not an online (or print) poetry magazine, doesn't diminish the fact that people are reading your poems.  Not only that, you get comments (sometimes) and help (often).

Publishing is overrated*  We all want people to love our poems, but that actually is more likely in Pig Pen than if you get something in a poetry journal.  I've been there.  The feeling of accomplishment is short-lived and hollow.

One thing to keep in mind:  most journals will not consider poems previously published online.  At least they say that in their submission guidleline.  So they see us as published.
Here endeth the lesson.

*I have great respect for those who make through the hoops through perseverance and determination and get their work published in a refereed journal or someone who publishes it themselves.  So this is of course just my feelings about the publishing question.
So basically you are saying that if I post my work here, it is seen as published? Even in the basic critique or mild or whatever on the forums?
