Why is there a See Also link to Magda Lupescu? Either it is not relevant, or there should be an explanation as to why it is relevant, as it is not immediately obvious. --Mitzy 02:53, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
The examples seem rather opinionated
Perhaps it is that I am not well acquainted with all (or rather any) of the nuances of poetry, but the examples failed to exemplify anything about the meaning of doggerel as per the definition provided. Perhaps they might be shortened to the relevant quotes rather than the entire poem? Or highlighted or underlined or really anything else for that matter. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:54, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
Seriously, who wrote this doggerel, or should I say drivel? Very poorly written. If I didn't know better, I would think that some goofball had written it just to enjoy the feeling of having contributed a topic previously missing from Wikipedia. But I'm sure there was a better reason than that. Surely. Revise and expand, or delete it entirely, as it should probably be found elsewhere as has already been mentioned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Infinityseed (talk • contribs) 09:58, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
This article blatantly violates Wikipedia's no-POV policy.
For instance, this sentence:
"Julia A. Moore, the "The Sweet Singer of Michigan," was a surprising best seller in 1876 with her Sentimental Song Book, despite the ineptitude of her poetry."
It's fine to cite a published source to explain that someone's work was widely thought to be inept.
