"Hm. I get Neo, then Allen, then Donnie. One savior and two bad guys. Put it together and I think it means I'm the anti-Christ. Let me go check my scalp for the Number of the Beast..."
- Jakuja after taking the 'What Keanu Character Are You?' quiz
( mission statement )
At WINM we aim to be a forefront player in the defence of actor Keanu Reeves, through intelligent rebuttal and civil discussion on and off the Internet. While acknowledging that he is far from the best actor in the history of film, we also believe that the majority of attacks on him and his work are unwarranted, unfair, and due largely to mob mentality. We urge anyone who considers themselves a Keanu fan to join us in our efforts to help him reclaim the basic respect that every human being - celebrity or otherwise - deserves.
Our vision is for there to come a time when the announcement of a Keanu film does not immediately draw hundreds of mockers and prejudiced pre-viewing comments; when the success of one of his films is not solely credited to other cast and crew members and the failure of one of his films not solely blamed on him; when people can acknowledge that he has talent comparable at least to that of the average actor and a filmography that far outshines many; when there is finally no longer a need for this website and we can retire with the satisfaction of knowing that, perhaps, we made a difference somewhere.
Totally Original Pep Talk
I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend Mr. Reeves, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of Internet noobs, if necessary for years, if necessary alone. At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of the members of the Keanu SWAT Team - every one of them. That is the will of WINM and those who support us. Keanu fans, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death our fandom actor, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of our strength.
Even though large tracts of the Internet and many old and famous journalists have fallen or may fall into the grip of the haters and all the odious apparatus of anti-Keanu rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight on WINM, we shall fight on IMDb, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in other parts of the Internet, we shall defend Keanu, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the blogs, we shall fight on the news sites, we shall fight in the schools and in the offices, we shall fight in our homes; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this community of fans or a large part of it were subjugated and relentlessly mocked, then our fandom beyond the Keanu SWAT Team, armed and guarded by those such as ChicksDig_Scars, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, Keanu fandom, with all its power and might, steps forth to lead the global appreciation and the liberation of The Anu.
