Yes, there will be new forums, but that won't happen right away. Once the switch happens, these forums will become read-only, so anything we post here won't go away.
Being the edgy poet is cool, until you also become known as the asshole poet. These are some hard lessons being taught. Make sure you're being open to what the community is trying to hip you to and not so defensive that you miss the knowledge.
It concerns me that your approach to your artists' poem and the subsequent backlash seems not to be to investigate the language and content that so universally distressed the NPS community and slam family, but instead to investigate the legality of the poem, and indeed to clarify that your poets did nothing wrong.
To me, your questions come across as a defense of the poem, which I think undermines the difficult work some folks did by approaching your poets at NPS, as well as the even harder work your poets did by opening up to listen. I would encourage you to keep an open mind about the criticism that was offered. I think it's pretty clear that no one is being censored at NPS.
