i think the point i'm trying to make is that it's obvious that we 
wouldn't be doing this if we didn't enjoy it and/or believe in it, and 
drawing attention to that fact just sounds like you're making childish 
threats to stop working if you don't get your way.  again, you probably 
don't mean it that way, but that's how it comes across.
