"Brokered" is not a 4-letter word!.  Brokered Deposits can be a cost-effective funding source, often times less expensive than other funding sources.    As far as a liquidity source, they are especially important to community banks in our present economic environment.    The benchmarks of 10% brokered and 20% growth are unrealistically low and are in no way reflective of risk to the deposit insurance fund.  For banks that have been established for over 10 years, the 20% growth limitation seems more reasonable.    

Deposits gathered from listing services should be treated the same as those gathered from normal marketing/advertising.  They should not be counted as brokered deposits!
