Those are kind comments, Peter, and I am grateful. As an experienced Tarboarder, you will know that sometimes you find yourself backed into a corner, and you think to yourself "How did I get into this corner?" In essence, I do not object (and have no right to object) to topics which other TarBoarders raise, whether it is BP, railways or anything else. What I do object to in connection with BP is not the honest discussion of the plumbing at Beckfoot or its relevance to the story line, but rather the "celebration" of it - the "mythology". It's become a huge in-joke, mentioned in a giggly way, and I find that not only tedious but, to be honest, menacing. I interpreted Ed's March post in that way and I won't be brow-beaten into changing my opinion. The point about the BP jokey mentions is that they occur randomly on all threads, and you can't avoid them so the usual argument that you can avoid threads you don't like won't work in this case.

Anyway, thanks again, Peter.
