Thanks for your input, Greenend! It's sometimes very easy for we who post lots to forget that lurkers like yourself are out there reading the boards every day, and that the boards are just as important to you as they are to us.

The silent members of our community are still members, and your opinions matter just as much as anyone else's (when you choose to state them, that is!)

There's a difference between "anglo-saxon" swearing and malevolent speech. People can speak malevolently without ever using "anglo-saxon".

To judge from the Sermon on the Mount, I think Jesus is more bothered about malevolence in terms of thoughts, words and deeds than about bad language per se. It's quite a good topic for discussion, so I might try my hand at a thread OP.

I love the lurkers and have always been confident that they agree with everything I say and am on my side in every argument!

However, and at risk of losing such a fine delusion, the one thing I would change about this board would be to add "like" buttons. I waste many hours on the Previously TV* forums and when I switch to the ship I find my fingers twitching for a like button after every brilliant post. "Like" buttons would also serve to give the lurkers a chance to express themselves without actually steeping out into the light.

* A fine, clean, well moderated forum with no nesting and, as I always say, if a show is worth watching it's worth picking apart later.

How that "notworthy" smiley is better than a simple "like" I do not know.

I've had a ponder about this.

There were times I felt as welcome as holy water in a an Orange lodge here, because for a long time any time I mentioned anything about my dissatisfaction with my cradle religion of Roman Catholicism, I'd get studs-on from the then resident Defenders of the One True Faith. One person decided to follow me on a Twitter alias I no longer use and pretty much stalked anything I said for a number of months until I discontinued that handle.

Hence, self-censorship.

It begged the question for me, how could I express my own unrest when I was getting highly assertive and, for a time, constant questioning of my position, which only the university educated theologically literate could bat back and forward?

I don't know the history of your posting, we missed each other. I recall feeling attacked in my first foray into posting, not saying it resembles your experience closely.

I have noted change and improved respectful discussion over time, as well as support and more openness to discussion of my things, with less personalization by others of my things. I'd certainly suggest trying again, if your post here suggests you might like to.

Technically, it will be SoF 3.0 if counting by online format. And we think you'll be impressed with its improved functionality. Well, actually, the main functional benefits are behind the scenes - where all the frantic leak-patching currently happens on the current Ship. Still: SHINY.

I can relate to this. I enjoy popping onboard every now and then to read the discussions - but have become very wary of posting anything as I've occasionally felt attacked rather than listened to or debated with when I've just been trying to explore an idea or understand a point of view. It could of course be my own ineptitude but it has made me reluctant to post (yes I am aware how ironic it is to post about not posting). However - highly value the boards and would very much like to see the discussions continue - but as to the mechanism by which that happens I really don't mind. Bring on Ship v3.0!!

If it's not here soon, I might be done
No it won't be too soon 'til I say goodnight moon
