Personally I still think a certain level of self-moderation should be upheld when posting about NCI on public forums. When you're on an external forum, you're a representative of NCI. If you start airing out dirty laundry (e.g. point 1 and 3), regardless of it being a legit complaint or not, it only makes us look even more like a disorganized collection of amateurs. Think about implications and consequences when communicating with the outside; it doesn't just affect you, it affects everybody within NCI.
In regards to "If my words hit a sore spot with you, you'd want me dead if I gave my fully frank opinion of things."
Sorry, I'm not here to stroke your ego. I'm here to (try and) make the best out of an organization that is dear to me through mutually respective dialogs on a mature level. If you want people to take your complaints and suggestions serious, I'd suggest you do the same.
On that note... Point 2A I can, to a certain extent, agree with. There are a few people at Kuula that seemingly do absolutely nothing except sit/stand around and start a riot as soon as someone they don't know bumps into them or (God forbid) sends them an Instant Message. They are a thorn in many eyes, though not as much as certain individuals who enjoy standing on the road between the parcels and send the same "Hi! Come out to the road, we have voice chat! "
Instant Message to everybody on the parcel over and over again; sometimes up to 10 times per hour. Perhaps it's an idea to "park" the "hangers" at the staff lounge/server room in Ukanipo? That way we'd clear up some room in Kuula, and still be a hospitable host to everybody.
