Cheers to Warren

Warren, I just wanted to say well-done.
You did not bow down to bullying.
You stayed cool when we were mocked.
You cited facts to counter unwarranted slander.
You spoke out in defense of the members of this group and you did it well.

I tip my hat to you.

Well done.

3. +1

 

Sorry for my part in that.

Wasn't my intent.

But I think it's obvious to all impartial observers that the claims made about this group in that one thread by that one angry individual were entirely false.

6. can`t forget the love for Jeff too....

 

Hosting this group and dealing with the disruptors/distractors is a job I don`t envy either for, and both do it with aplomb and wit not often seen on the interwebz

11. I'd laugh if you two were brothers.

"Hi. I'm Lumberjack Jeff. This is my brother Warren. This is my other brother Warren."

15. There are lots of Warrens, that's for sure.

I don't know if there'll be a name change amnesty after the election, I'm getting sort of used to this one.

I especially like it when people assume it means I'm some sort of weird, foul-mouthed European Aristocrat.

10. Thanks for blocking Trumad

At least he is confined to spamming his brand of obnoxiousness meta.

17. And he pushed it for a LOOONG time. Jeff and I had discussed it, and whether blocking him would give

him what he wanted as far as an excuse to gripe about this place in meta.

It became pretty clear that he was going to do that whether or not he was blocked, though.

13. This group is nothing like its supposed reputation.

Early on I did believe some of the comments made about this group but after I took the time to read a number of threads, I came to the conclusion that my view was wrong. Which reminded me once again that I ought to check things out myself and draw my own conclusion rather then rely on the opinions of others.

14. Aw, thanks, man.

(I'm glad the other Warren is getting some well-deserved credit, too. )

I'm proud of this group. Invariably when the critics and bystanders have taken the time to see what is ACTUALLY being said over here, they realize that there's been some deliberate misrepresentin' going on. Thank you, all, for keeping cool as well.

Maybe we should have a slogan, like "The Men's Group: Don't believe the hype, and we've got cookies. Or Pie."

Or Miller 64, I hear we like to drink that.

18. Yes, hats off to the leaders here

My hope is that for all the whining that goes on, people will come here and see for themselves as opposed to taking the word of some very angry, very strange individuals with too much time on their hands.
