If the forum is to use titles in the future, I would like to request the title "almighty master authority Bansy". I would like everyone to address me that way, it would be nice to log onto the forum that way.
Althernatively other titles acceptable for you all to call me are: "The Divine One Bansy", "Elevated Soul Bansy", "Your Royal Highness Bansy", or "Lighthouse Mighthouse Bansy". It's only a title after all, is it not. Or you can simply choose to address me as a fellow soul, Bansy. Any objections ? Well, you can also choose whatever titles you wish too, but I've reserved the above. :P
If you want to get BKs onto this forum, better drop the titles. No BK is going to bother with the PBKs. I would say that without BKs on this forum, this forum is not going to go very far on the BK front. If a BK can post without needing to identify him or herself as a BK, maybe some dialogue will occur.
But the other practical way is to see if dropping titles will change the way the forum goes. We will not know until it is tried, maybe for a trial period. The forum has, more or less, been on trial since the start.
Then the BKs who surf this forum cannot say, "It's only a bunch of ex-BKs complaining", or "Its only a place for PBKs to whine but we cannot beat them with sticks there". Without seeing titles, the BKs can only say "there is a number of people from a wide spectrum of society who have various issues with the us, maybe even amongst BKs ourselves".
And so the question to therefore ask is WHO is this forum for ? A one stop shop for anyone connected to BK life, errr ... but excluding the BKs ? Now post-litigation, this forum has greater awareness, but is it already too late to really get any hardcore BKs onto this forum, other than those who are or are already on their way out and would eventually find us anyway.
However, whether titles are decided to be used or not, you should all still address me as indicated in any of the above. Over time, you'll just get used to it. Another 29 years. :P
