What do you think about closed ship forums?

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been asked more than once if we could close-off the ship forums so that only members of those ships could access the forum. We do have the option of password protecting ship forums, and we’re curious what members think about this? Are closed ship forums “better” and more useful, or is it more fun to allow everyone in the fleet to cruise around as they please? We have a poll set up on the forums to get your thoughts, so please head over there and weigh in now!
