SCR+II and The Chimaera have been read at least 10,969 times. The SCR Blog has been read 9282 times.

Corruption to the tune of countless millions of $$$ has been exploited and harvested by the sleazy editorial team in bribes, kickbacks, poems-for-cash, cross-promotion, round-the-world trips, sexual favours and serial attacks on the Shit Creek Office Petty Cash tin and whisky supply.

Individual editors have had mixed fortunes: one has gone missing in the desert, one is under heavy sedation, one has gone to Oregon, one is studying for a higher degree, and one has fractured her sternum while performing acrobatics tricks (including a Grand Jeté with Triple Somersault and Pike) on high scaffolding.

The Board expects that these achievements will be easily equalled and surpassed in Poetic Year 2008, with contributors and readers being drawn from an even wider geographical, linguistic and socio-economic base, and corruption revenues enhanced by a rigorous pruning of contributing poets' rights and amenities.

Concerns expressed by nervous observers to the effect that there are far too many online poetry magazines aimed at servicing a particular online poetry community have been airily dismissed by Chairman of the Board Paul Stevens in his Annual Address to Shit Creek Paddlers, who remarked: "Let them bake cake!" He pointed out that members of that particular community will find it harder and harder to win publication in magazines in the SCR stable due to the ongoing widening of the SCR contributor recruitment base. He noted that current operations in the British Isles particularly are achieving spectacular success in raising the bribe/publication ratio and yield, and went on to predict that the going rate for inclusion in SCR publications, whether expressed in $US, gold ounces, or degrees of required kinship proximity, will soon price online poetry community members out of the market.
