    I’m not accepting that definition. I hereby declare woo is a positive thing which means

    “woo hoo! Good job! Alright! Nice going!”

    Woo me all you want!

    🤣

    I hereby declare that all pizza is considered a "free food" and doesn't affect your macros.

    Tada!

    Did it work?

    😩

    Dreams really do come true!

    I did not know this before earlier today, and that's a shame because I think i wooed a couple of really good posts before that. Maybe mods should make a quick pin explaining each of th reacts, just to cover this?

    I don't get why this hasn't been addressed yet by The Powers That Be. it's ALWAYS causing confusion and then someone has to link to the explanation of what is woo.

    I used to think it was woohoo too, especially because it comes between like and hug - so obviously, if it's between like and hug, it MUST mean WOOHOO, right?

    I agree with the thumbs down thingy instead.

    Simple thumbs down would be more clear. Many of us regular posters have serial woo'ers/stalkers/etc.; it's a bit disturbing having creepers regularly read over your posts & automatically woo something (even if it's just a stated opinion; seems more appropriate for skepticism/debating something as fact).

    If you have something personal against me (age, race, appearance, etc.) come @ me mystery bro/broette...quit hiding behind a computer/keyboard warrior. I promise I won't bite too hard

    The bite promise might just be enough to make them come forward 😏

    I'm confused. Is Woo like a thumbs down or a down vote on reddit? One post said that it means "too good to be true". I like posting and contributing here, but I find the woos a little disheartening because I'm not precisely sure what they mean ... Even if it's something fairly moderate like 'too good to be true', that's also a bit insulting because I'm very honest in my posts ...

    I think it stands for Woo = Wu = Wu Tang = Awesome. And when I think of Wu Tang, Awesome I think of this: (this is the best way to answer your question from my perspective.)

    Its best not to take the woo thing personally or to see it as a slight or a negative. The woo button is valid. The reason people including me use it is because there are so many rubbish ideas out there about weight loss. The long term users here have educated themselves (some really extensively), they know what they're talking about so it just grates when wrong information is being posted. We are here to learn and educate ourselves on how to eat/exercise better and be the best version of ourselves that we can be in regards to fitness.
