where the hell did the poems go?

ok, if anyone out there checks this blog on any regular basis, you'll see that some poems are missing. including some that you kind people took the time to comment on.
here's the scoop...
I took down poems that haven't been published in print mags yet, as I'm a bit confused on the "previously published" issue that most print mags have. if it's been published before (including poet geek blogs done by the poet geek author) they won't accept them. I think. if google turns up that poem, the mag will reject you. and you'll be shunned and stoned.
I think.
I dunno, I'm just playing it safe.
if anyone out there knows anything about this, please drop me a line.

Could it be something to do with copyright and publishing rights?

milla, I think you're correct. I'm just not sure what is ok and what isn't.
