Exclamation Welcome Your New Moderators!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is my distinct honor to announce to the Puff community, the newest members of your Moderator Team are to be, Rock31, aka, Ray Peterson and Tobias Lutz, aka, Tobias Lutz.

It's been a long and arduous process, yet due to their quality, not difficult. Thankfully, we've managed to engage two of the finest, most dedicated, committed, level-headed, right-thinking gentlemen imaginable. I think it's safe to say, we're damn lucky to have their like among us and can rest a little easier knowing they're on the wall.

What's truly great about their selection is that while they are of like-mind in terms of their support of our community values, they bring to the table a very diverse palette of interests, abilities and affinities.

Quite simply, they are "doers" and proactive initiative-takers. There are none finer.



Here’s a note I received from Tobias, who agreed that I share it with you. I think this pretty much says it all:

Quote:
I really enjoy Puff because of the level of “real” interaction I have found here. What I mean is that (for me at least) this isn’t just a place where people talk from behind their computer screens. We have passes, trades, a vibrant sales forum, etc. In addition to that I have herfed with other Puffers, talked with them on the phone and via email, and have a small circle of pipe guys that I regularly exchange blends with outside of open forum. These are real relationships, not just curated internet friendships.” –T.Lutz
I’ve known and had the pleasure of calling Ray brother and friend for many years. He is a cornerstone of consistency and brings with him, many valuable attributes:

Rock31 has been a standout BOTL and asset to our community since 2010. He has served this community well, through his thoughtfulness and generosity as well as spearheading the Cigars for Troops effort for the last two years. Ray brings tremendous enthusiasm and dedication to service to the position and it is indeed our pleasure to embrace him as a member of the Team.

Please join me in both welcoming, as well as offering, Ray and Tobias, our unreserved respect and support.

Congrats Ray!

And on Tobias...uhm...is it too late for me to get a vote in on that one?

We kid! Excellent choices, couldn't picked better myself. They're both respected and trusted, and great additions to the mod team.
