Joe is one of our most consistent and prolific contributors here in the community. He is always polite, thoughtful and helpful. In my brief time here in this wonderful community, I can always be assured that if Joe has given an answer, then it is worth taking the time to read.

So it was no surprise to me to see he has earned the recognition by the community for his efforts and has achieved the milestone of 100k reputation.

Joe Strazzere

Please join me in congratulating Joe for his impressive contribution to the community!

    Does Jane S means Jane Strazzere? Uhmm... I just want to know. I am not assuming. :) Commented Oct 10, 2015 at 8:08

    @CaryBondoc LOL! No, my "S" is a different surname. I'm also in the wrong country. Actually, I'm on the wrong side of the planet :)

    Which begs the question, "Where do you find any time to work?" :) Seriously, though, congrats, Joe! Commented Oct 13, 2015 at 4:11

  • @JaneS Get ready to prep for Joe's 200K! I estimate it to come around in 3-4 months.

I often find myself wanting to answer a question, only to see an answer from Joe that says what I wanted to say. So I just cast my upvote and wait for the next chance...

You are also the only person with the Legendary Badge - this means you have hit the 200 reputation cap 150 times (at least, that was awarded almost a year ago).

Thanks for helping make this place great!

    Yeah can we implement some kind of "Joe can't answer for 30 minutes" rule, to give the rest of us mere mortals a chance? :)

    @Bmo It is odd that we never see Joe Strazzere and Jon Skeet in the same place... Commented Oct 21, 2015 at 14:56

Congratulations Joe.

As a newbie in this community, I can say that you are an inspiration for people contributing here.

Your answers are a proof that high-scoring and the best answers can indeed be the shortest ones.

Keep going!


Wow! Nice work Joe! I also and happy to see him here, and always find his answers really excellent.


Congrats Joe. That is some accomplishment. I have been on Stack overflow for 7 years and am nowhere near that!

Well done Joe, I've browsed a lot of the older (before I arrived) questions, and I think your answers are well thought out and helpful ones. You definitely earned your laurels.


Joe's answers are always inspiring and sure reflects his ultimate professionalism.

Congratulations for being the first to achieve 100k rep and thanks for your contributions! And may the rest of us follow your example.

I always enjoy Joe's answers. Concise, helpful, informative and I always give myself a pat on the back if I have a "I was going to say that" moment!

He is one of the very best of an exceptionally good community here on The Workplace where the lack of trolls and absence people just wanting to pick fights must be mentioned to. It is a place that fulfills it's brief of being a place people share problems and receive advice.

Please carry on Joe. You would leave a hole bigger than you could imagine if you stopped contributing.

And everyone else. Please keep on being a great community.
