Right. I've spoken privately (I don't think I've ever done so  
publically) about the possibility of removing voice from people  
who're becoming disruptive in meetings. But even in the most  
contentious, and popular, meetings, we've not had to do this.

In general, there's a small core of people who're present for nearly  
every Council meeting, and a somewhat larger group who drift in if  
there's something that interests. I can't think of a time when the  
input from these people has been anything less than helpful.

It's somewhat frustrating that we don't record attendence by non  
Council members, actually, since it means we don't formally recognise  
the contribution by thoe people.

I'd note that I see no reason to allow non-members into Board  
meetings, though - that can be an exciting priviledge of membership.
