my argument for "this site for free poetry is great" is "the National Library of Australia says it is of cultural value"

how much more do you need for a free poetry site to be great than it is consider to be of cultural value by a National Library
also
1)

gamahucher press is being preserved is a great thing -because the work will be free -for download for ever
2)
how many publisher press give all their works away for free and if some do this is great but I bet gamahucher press is only one of a few

3) ihttp://pandora.nla.gov.au...
you will see that gamahucher press is considered by the National Library of Austral to be of cultural value

note the guidelines says
"In the case of online publications, content is the pre-eminent factor determining selection"
"recognised authority and constitute a contribution to international knowledge"
be on a subject of ..., cultural, religious, scientific or economic significance and relevance to Australia "

"4.1 Australian content

4.1.1 To be selected for national preservation, a significant proportion of a work should

be about Australia (7); or
be on a subject of social, political, cultural, religious, scientific or economic significance and relevance to Australia and be written by an Australian author; or

be written by an Australian (8) of recognised authority and constitute a contribution to international knowledge.

4.1.2 It may be located on either an Australian or an overseas server. Australian authorship or editorship alone is insufficient grounds for national preservation. In the case of online publications, content is the pre-eminent factor determining selection
