I agree with this completely. Instinctively, I react poorly to public expressions of anger. However, one of the big problems we've had in OTW things is a nicey-nice culture of sweeping things under the rug in the name of harmony. I've noticed this happening a bit and I've noticed people complaining about it or suggesting that it is going on to a very large extent. My feeling is that the realities of committee/board work will make people compromise quite a lot already. An angry board candidate (committee member, volunteer, blogger, etc.) could be someone who is going to be pointlessly divisive or they could be someone who will actually have the energy to effect change. It's far from clear cut.
