But you could have an official forum restricted to Council members. Even better, you could prevent non-Council members from reading it. Would that be suitably bland for sensitive directors to contribute to? Perhaps not, as even Council members show signs of anarchic or questioning behaviour from time to time.
If you had an OMOV system instead of a Council, would that be better? Direct elections should concentrate the minds of candidates for election, against that, once elected, it would be difficult or impossible to hold them to account.
