What do we want Tarboard for?

I've been pondering earlier questions about whether to continue with Tarboard. It would help me to know what we want Tarboard FOR and whether we can get that here or elsewhere.
What I like about Tarboard is that you can see the discussion progress along a particular thread ... and it keeps relatively static! FB jumps about all over the place, which can be fun (suddenly seeing a post from two years ago that someone has just commented on), but it's difficult to find a post you only wrote a week ago, if a whole lot of old stuff has popped up in between.
I also like the idea of having longer more "meaty" discussions as I think happened previously, but I just don't see that happening here very often now. And ... very rarely do I get a response to one of my posts. Which makes me think I may not fit in here (nothing personal, just different interests), and in fact my presence (as a person who is unlikely to sprout more than a dozen hairs on her chin) may impede some conversation. (Don't care if that's not PC, I think it's being realistic. My soldiers used to tone down their language when I was around, and I liked that, but I wouldn't want you to avoid an interesting conversation on gender issues because I'm not male.)
So ... maybe if people could say what they like Tarboard for, that might help other people to decide and add their own views as/if they join?
