No, you're right, but it allows for an interesting possibility of a
victory condition, for instance.... I just thought that with some things

Also, the awarding of respect for poetic proposals dilutes the concept of respect as something given by the players to recognize or disparage another player.  Considering that is pretty much *all* that respect does right now, I'm not sure why this proposal would want to make a player's Respect score less meaningful.

Well, if you like the general idea, then vote it in this week, and then
propose to repeal the cinquain rule next week (one of the reasons I made
them separate rules). I might actually vote to repeal it too (I just
wanted to add more than one form).  That way we all get points!
