I think the downside can be making comparisons between your therapy and someone else's. I am so jealous when I hear how someone else moved themselves forward, did something brave or got a hug from their therapist. I find myself upset at my therapist because he didn't do the same thing, or didn't say something or did say something! It doesn't happen very often, but it has happened. He reminds me that my therapy is "MY" therapy - and that we are creating it together. He has made certain decisions about his boundaries but he explains why or how he reached these decisions. And we usually learn something when I react to a post.

We talk about the Board a lot, actually. He is interested in what I'm discussing and how it effects me. We've had a number of discussions here about dissipating intense emotions by writing about them, instead of talking about them during sessions. But I think for most people, going 1x per week, the emotions would dissipate anyway. At least by posting, you have feedback, dialogue and a record of what you were feeling. If you can take it with you into sessions, it can be a useful thing. And I think a week can be a long time to wait with all that angst.

The other downside could be keeping Babble a secret from your therapist. Not that you have to give them the actual name of this place (I haven't) but I think you could potentially feel bad about having to keep a secret from the one person you are supposed to be able to be totally honest with.
