One of the cool things about the first "51 Authors and Poets Frequently Mentioned on the Web" list is that it was based on objective exact Google search results for the phrase "Author Poet". But it looks like most of the African-American authors who were in the original top 10 were voted out of it and it's hard to tell if it just happened that way or if it was systematic targeting. However it happened, it seems important to preserve the original non-biased order for future reference so it's getting placed here. Aside from the race thing, a lot of the ones voted down are part of contemporary deals and write about the times we live in. Since this isn't a greatest pen-pushers of all time list it's a good thing to check out a list of wordsmiths from different periods of history.
