We all appreciate your interest in safety.

Would you be willing to adjust your marketing skills if it would save lives?

I would compare your well placed zeal with that of a street preacher.
The scolding/guardion approach will definitely work on a few. But most people resist the authoritarian approach.
Beat them over the head with the Bible creates resentment rather than inspiration.
Clever evangelists take a slower steady course.

If you wish to evangelize DIR, then an ambassador approach might have a greater result.

It might not be smart, but some of your posts create a knee-jerk response to someone who comes across as a know-it-all.
If the framework of your well intended posts push people away from DIR, then you may be actually be interfering with your mission.

Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if ALL divers looked forward to seeing you just becaues of your great reputation?

We can make it happen....
I am a marketing guy by day, and would be willing to coach you on your delivery.

And I am not that expensive :-)
