Hi, Brett!

I really like most of your articles and even more — so I've already translated one of them into russian (talkin' about Adrian Peter Shmidt and his odd exercises).

So my question is: can I place my translation of your article at This is the popular russian web-issue about men's way of life in the modern city. And don't worry, I promise to put the active link of original article below or even above the translation!

I think you guys doing the great things and I want to share it with the russian audience, chasing the goal to promote healthy way of life and ideals of manliness.

Bless you!

Hey Brett:

Is there any way you can delete all the posts I made in the sex group while Jack Bauer was hunting me down there?   I mean, I tried, but no x in upper corner in the posts. 

Jack, by the way, continues to attack me on sexual preference stuff.  I can handle the occasional "fag joke" for the sake of keeping the peace, but his spiel is out of control.  I thought that kind off stuff wasn't too cool around here?

You're a legend. Thank you for this awesome website. It's making a huge difference in my life and it's quickly becoming a place of support and familiarity. If there's anyway I can contribute or give back, let me know. What you're doing is truly epic. 

Thanks again, you manly man.

Holy cow, Brett! You left me a message years ago and I just now discovered it. Thank you, and allow me to wish you and your family a warm welcome to Denver. 

Kind Regards,

Hey Brett, just wanted to let you know that the most recent few articles have been pretty kick ass. Keep it up!

Hi Brett,

I uploaded a couple photos from my phone with the intention of making one a profile pic.  It seems that when I try to add a profile picture it wants to browse my computer for one.  I'm sure I'm making this harder than it needs to be.  I'm used to just clicking the "make this your profile pic" on Facebook.  Also, can we "crop" a photo?  Please help...that is, when you find the time.  ps...really love the site, resources, etc.  Keep doing, what your's appreciated!

Hello Mr. McKay,

        I just wanted to thank you for everything you have been doing. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything you have done on the blog and your books. I appreciate that you have showed me that I really can become a "man" without turning on my values and being a pig. I do not have a male role model in my life, but the blog and community have guided me through many situations. Nice to know there are good people in the world still standing.

No, Thank you! I do public speaking engagements and am using "The Fighter" by S.E. Kiser tomorrow for one such engagement! Excited to use it and see how it goes over. I think it'll be great. I've finished the book and once I knock off a couple other books on my list, I'm going back to Manvotionals for a second go-around.
