Community Username: Peacekeeper
Real Name: Tony
Tony has been a strong and steady force in the McAfee community long before we migrated to the new platform you see today. His input was integral to the implementation effort, and he continues to report site issues that lead to an improved user experience here.
Aside from that, he is an invaluable extension of the McAfee support team! Being an Aussie, he wakes up at the crack of dawn to attend weekly calls (along with Ex_Brit) to discuss emerging issues and troubleshooting results with McAfee engineers.
Sometimes people have a hard time remembering his username. Say it with me now: PeaceKEEPER, not Peacemaker, or Peacecleaner.
Thank you for everything you do, Tony! We appreciate you.
