Best Critique Site Can't Post

I am looking for a poetry site which will give me good critiques. I do not at all mind severe criticism (have in fact experienced it on a defunct site) and sincerely desire to improve my poetry. Extremely sarcastic or dismissive remarks have not been helpful, but I certainly do not wish to be patronized, unduly flattered, or subject to condescension, Otherwise I do not resent even extreme negativity, particularly so long as the critic truly desires to help me become a better poet. Most of my recent experience has been on sites that are entirely too kind to me, and even praise very bad poetry from others. That I wish to avoid if I can. Can someone here recommend a site or two that I should investigate? Thank you very much. I'd appreciate some replies.

-Dean aka Synchro

You can certainly find the answer here in the archives...

I know there are at least a few reputable workshop sites. Try Eratosphere.

You could try zoetrope.com. Look up their virtual studio, where you can sign up and give and get critiques. I'm not sure about poetry, but their forums could be helpful as a way into finding other resources.
