The fart dog has left us. For those who do not know Prutterhunden, I can say that Dan, who was his real name, has been the administrator of our IT debate forum since September 25, 2021. Illness won over him the night of Wednesday, July 28, 2021 – quite shortly after Dance 70th birthday.
Thus, the debate forum on Nettips.dk has lost a fiery soul, whose most important role was to create a forum where there was room for everyone. Dan was a man who did not tolerate anyone being cannibalized. Therefore, it was very important to him to make sure that everyone could express themselves. Countless times he has stressed that everyone was allowed to have their say as long as it could hold within the rules of the forum.
And it was precisely Dan in a nutshell that he managed to keep alive the debate forum through his amazing abilities in eloquence and whimsy. It took a lot to make Dan angry, and if members started looking big at the forum rules, he kindly told them that they could either follow the rules or leave the forum.
At one point, I praised Dan for his good way of tackling difficult situations, and I was asked how he could handle the debates that sometimes went a bit high.
“It takes a cartwheel to knock me off the stick,” replied Dan.
The carriage hit Dan on Wednesday night. After a relatively short but hard course of illness, Dan had to let go of life. Luckily, Dan had an absolutely amazing family around him. I know that Dan has really enjoyed some lovely stays in his sister’s and brother – in – law’s cottage in North Zealand. Sometimes he cared for two dogs up there, and I know those were some of the times he appreciated the most.
And it was probably really Dan in a nutshell. If he could help others in any way, he did. And he did it with his heart, for Dan’s heart was in the right place. I have always been so privileged to have good administrators in the forum, but there should be no doubt that it will be impossible to replace Dan.
The enthusiasm and diligence he carried out in the debate forum cannot be described in words. In addition, Dan’s interest in running a debate forum in the spirit of justice was quite unique, and he performed the job in such a way that his irony and sarcasm sometimes constituted it as an alternative to scolding and reprimanding. Someone may have felt hit on the cuffs over this sophisticated way of putting things in place, but for me I have always backed around Dan’s way of approaching it.
Dear Dan, I’m going to miss you. When I talked to your sister a few weeks ago, we all knew where it was going. I did not get to talk to you the last few weeks of your life. It happened on sms when you were too weak to be able to talk on the phone.
Dear Dan, the debate forum and the members will miss you. We are now going to deal with a forum where your biting and pointed comments become a scarce commodity.
Some believe that “no one is indispensable”. All can be replaced. I’m not so sure now. Without you, I fear that Nettips’ discussion forum will face a very difficult time. You have always been there in pressured and difficult situations, and many times you told me that I could calmly take care of my little company. You should probably take care of the forum.
Dear Dan, you can no longer do that. I’m sure you’d rather than like to continue your good, solid and amazing work in the forum where you are now, but it’s not possible.
The cartwheel hit and knocked you off the stick. I send you and your sweet family the most loving thoughts.
Rest in peace, my friend.
