If O. Henry submits a Forum post in ISC, then the reactions would be......We don't know William Sidney Porter. But if we mention his pen name (O. Henry), many of us would recognise him instantly. He is considered one of the best short story writers along with Maupassant and Chekov. O. Henry's story is characterised by dramatic twist in the last para, sometime even in the last line. "The Gift of the Magi" is the most popular short story of O. Henry.
O. Henry left the world in 1910. However, from the heaven, he came to know about the popularity of ISC and decided to submit a short story. As usual, the story has a turn in the last para. O. Henry decided to post his story in the Forum section to check the instant reaction from the members of the modern India.
The reactions started trickling.
Member A: It is very poor quality thread from Henry. What is there in your thread to discuss about or think about. You should avoid posting such threads in the ISC forum.
Member B: Henry, You have shown great promise. Carry on and you will definitely come the level of senior members one day. But post such time-consuming stories in Articles section and wait for the approval. Otherwise you will become laughing stock of the members.
Member C: According to my observation after reading your story I found that your story has no purpose, no meaning and no one get any understanding. If you have presented the incident in a meaningful way with a purpose there won't be any problem with your message. When your posting a thread, the thread must provide some message to the readers and should have some purpose. But your thread simply personal and it is not giving any meaningful idea to others. It is so boring that I didn't even read the last para. What's the use?
Member D: I find the story exciting. The last para has an unexpected twist.
Member E: Henry, I am sorry that I can't comment on the quality of your story. But one thing can be stated for sure that it doesn't conform to SEO requirements.
