no amount of tutt-tutting here will actually affect public perception of R1. Why? Cause the public doesn’t read this, and more than likely, doesn’t care.
My first instinct is to try to argue this point. I mean, after all, apathy concerning the credit union movement is what we are desperately trying to change in our little piece of the blogosphere. Have we been successful? I'm not sure. I do know, however, that the attempt has been pure. I take solace in that fact.
But the point I will make is simply this: this network of credit union people about which James scoffs are writing, debating, and sharing ideas about a movement that they truly love - and for which they have a genuine passion for improving. If a consumer stumbles upon one of our posts (even the stupid ones I write about McRibs and Brett Favre), the result will no doubt be overwhelmingly positive. That's why our industry is special. Our Technorati rating, comment totals, or site visits will not change that.
