Socially responsible investing isn't about whether you sit around with friends and gab about your stock picks. Nor is it about whether you've thought long and hard about each investment decision before making a trade: Of course you've done that! It's also not about whether you file your brokerage statements away in a neat and timely fashion. Each of those things may be deemed 'social' or 'responsible' -- perhaps even admirable -- but it's not what the investment world means when it talks about SRI."
