Tod Maffin uses social media to attack opponents for not using social media

In a post, aptly titled
dirty2 ...

The slate of Kim Griffiths, Wendy Holm, and Lisa Barrett, in trying to connect with voters, established a blog some weeks ago. We welcomed them to the social media world!

But… are they actually interested in engaging in a dialogue with members, or is it all just a smoke-screen to just look like they’re hip to social media?

Let’s look at the facts.

1. First, they have not posted a single thing on their blog, except for a single “Hey, look at us, we launched a blog!” posting.
2. They do not have a Twitter account. Instead, they link to one of their slate’s personal Twitter accounts which has had all of four tweets throughout the campaign, and not a single @reply to start a discussion with members.
3. They have a “campaign diary” but do not accept any comments, questions, or critiques from members. One person even asked on their main blog site why…

Their response? Nothing. No answer back. That was 11 days ago and counting. This is their method of using social media to engage in a dialogue with with members?!

As we enter a decade where social media, technology, and large-scale change is occurring, are these really the people you want at the helm?

... Tod's usual public relations begin taking shape on behalf of Van City Credit Union.

Just think of what's in store for the people who will have the delightful experience of working with Tod Maffin.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
