We discussed if was appropriated to explain personal points of views on the topic.
It is not only appropriate that those personal points of view are expressed... it is *critical*.
The Board positions are elected (other than Richard, who is installed by a corporation). If Board members cannot speak their personal opinions on any (and every) topic, it becomes *pointless* to have elections -- as there would be no way to easily understand the differences between elected officials and hold them accountable to the people who elected them.
Are there any other items Board members are currently forbidden / discouraged from discussing?
I completely disagree here, Bryan, and I consider your post as trolling. You know very well how it works and has worked. We did not discuss whether or not we have personal opinions, we discussed ventilating disagreement with decisions democraticly taken. As you know any board member can suggest to ask the community and let them vote, but the community chooses the board to facilitate decision making. Also, the board operates as a team. Would you accept team members that question any decision that was voted on?
This board is trying to be more transparant in communication through the minutes. I will discourage ( can't forbid, nobody can and you know that ) any mentioning of persons where it considers conflict resolution f.e. . I will also discourage to publish nasty conflicts inside the board with ugly member behaviour, as an other example.
You yourself have lived the Board and have every time it was discussed agreed to keep certain things private, and now after eight months of silence from your side this? Come on, disappointing.
