Steven R. Drennon was born in Lawton, OK, where he first started writing poetry at the age of 15. Since then he has collected nearly one thousand poems that he has written over the years. Those poems have recently been released as six separate volumes of poetry. He has also added two collections which include additional poems that had never been previously published, resulting in all of his poetry being available to the public for the first time ever.

In addition to this, Steven published an epic fantasy novel titled "Rise of the Raven" in the spring of 2011. Another fantasy novel titled "Three for Avadar" was released in early summer of 2011. Steven more recently released two suspense novellas titled "Desperate Love" and "Shattered Vows" in 2012, and he expects to release another in 2013.

Currently Steven lives in San Antonio, TX.

comment Scientists who became major political leaders
Sorry, Yannis is right. Even if you ask about only one specific type of scientist, you are still asking for a list, and not an answer.

comment Who is responsible for the partition of Palestine?
First of all, welcome to the site. The reason your initial post was rejected was most likely because it was too short. We prefer that the questions asked here have considerable substance and are specific about the information being requested. I would suggest modifying your question to make it a little more robust, while also removing the irrelevant content that permitted you to make it through the filter. :)

comment What was the reason of extreme anti-Communism in the first half of 20th century?
I've received a couple of flags suggesting this is not a real answer. I would disagree with that, but I would say that this is not a very good or very complete answer. The whole reason for allowing you to downvote an answer is to send a message about the quality of the answer. That is why I have chosen to downvote it rather than delete it.

comment What is the basis of Russian criticism of Antony Beevor's work?
You guys need to keep in mind that SE is about providing clear and concise answers. It is NOT a forum for discussion or debate, and it is NOT a forum for OPINION. This question is overflowing with all of these things which are clearly stated as being outside of our guidelines. I am going to block this question from further comments. I am not trying to be "heavy-handed", I'm just trying to enforce the rules. If you don't understand which rules, then please consult the FAQ. If anyone would care to dispute my assertion or discuss this further, bring it up on the Meta site.

comment Is this absolute timeline correct?
"Do you agree or do you think this would just be confusing to kids?" Questions like this are most likely to be answered with opinions and discussions. One person may say yes while another says no and a third says maybe. Sorry, "but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion", which is straight from the guidelines. I don't see it as a good fit.

comment What is the basis of Russian criticism of Antony Beevor's work?
Sorry, but based on the number and types of comments, I have to say that this question is only generating a lot of opinion and discussion rather than truly objective answers. I'm leaving it closed. If the comments and discussions continue as they are, I will also block it.

comment Is this absolute timeline correct?
Sorry, but this question can't really be answered objectively, so I have to close it. Any question that is likely to solicit opinion, discussion, or debate is not appropriate for this site. Please read through our FAQ to get a better idea of the kind of questions that are accpetable.

comment What is the basis of Russian criticism of Antony Beevor's work?
I never even looked at the answers. It is the question that is sketchy. Until you can improve the question, I am going to have to close it. We need to have it worded in a way that anyone coming to the site for the first time would be able to understand what is being asked without having to go look it up. Once you reword it I will consider reopening.

comment What is the basis of Russian criticism of Antony Beevor's work?
Could you please reword this question and expand on what exactly you are asking? It is already garnering votes for closing, and I'm definitely leaning towards doing so. BTW - You should NEVER send site visitors elsewhere to get an understanding of what you are asking. Paraphrase the information in your link at the very least.

I'm sorry, but in it's current state, this question does not fit within our guidelines. As it stands it is subject to being answered by opionion or speculation, rather than fact. I am closing the question, but if you would like to modify it so that it fits better within our guidleines, I'll be happy to consider reopening.

comment How did Nazi Germany finance itself during WW2?
Could you please give us a paraphrase of the "detailed reviews" at the very least? Part of our guidelines is to provide a complete answer rather than sending people off to another location to look for it. Otherwise we will have to closew this answer. Thanks!

comment What was the basis for the Nazis to support various ethnic minorities in the Soviet Union and elsewhere over the majority populations?
I am assuming that none of the Nazis behind these decisions are still alive or willing to provide their reasons. Therefore this question can only be answered with opinion and speculation, which means it does not fit within our guidelines. If you'd like to reword it I will consider reopening.

I reworded the question to make it more relevant, If you feel that the changes take away from your original intention, let me know. Hopefully this revision will be suitable enough to encourage those who downvoted to reconsider.

comment Did Napoleon ever visit Modern Israel?
Welcome to the site. Could you please fix your link? Also, we tend to prefer more complete answers rather than just sending folks off somewhere else to find it. You can paraphrase from the wiki, but we'd like to see a little more substance.

comment Where can I find information about prior Israel/Gaza conflicts?
Closed for the following reason: "this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion". More specifically the polling portion. Any questions that asks for opinions or a list of any nature does not fit within our guidelines. If you can reword the question I will be happy to consider reopening.

comment Instances of the UN defusing serious crises
I have modified this question so that it can be answered much more objectively. In addition to this I have removed al the previous comments because of the way they had evolved into a discussion. I would like to suggest that we move forward with this in the modified state and see how the community responds.
