We need to have SOME friends, or we might just as well sit in our easy chairs and drink a toast to ‘the end.’ And here is a little secret: The numbers in our readership are not where we need them to be for effective message delivery. And effective message delivery is needed to convince our friends why they are our friends, and to let our opposition know that they are on the wrong track.
RightMi.com has in the past provided something not available in the regular media, and missing in other blogs. While being provocative enough to earn a disowning from the old Rightmichigan.com site, I had hoped we could avoid being vulgar and outright offensive for the sake of being offensive.
Somewhere along the way, the ball was dropped, IMO. I will take responsibility for it too. This forum has provided relevant information and has moved opinion by providing the truth for those who wish to see it. We have influenced decision makers rightly by seeking insight that they have lacked. But in the process, some articles and commentary might have been seen as crossing a line of decency, and now we are paying the price.
This shouldn’t have happened.
We want engagement. We want input, and are willing to host a space that offers an enhanced forum outside of FB, where much political discussion now seems to be the norm. And we don’t pound you with ads – on purpose.
Adjustments are being made but make no mistake, RightMi.com is not going to go all politically correct. There will be no previous posts pulled, edited, or moderated after the fact. And its not about to become a GOP sycophant site. However, it is time to stop gratuitous crudity in future posts and commentary.
This isn’t KOS, so watch for changes in how things are done here.
