    Thanks to CaptainCourtesy

    Due to inactivity, we are de-modding CaptainCourtesy. I don't think I can stress enough how much CC has meant to DP over the years. He served as a mod for 12 years and he has been an admin for more than 10 years. His contributions, both behind the scenes and out in full view for all to see, can't really be measured. I know for a fact that he has personally helped a great many of us during struggles in our personal lives, myself included. He will be missed immeasurably and it is the hope of the entire staff that one day he can return.

    He has shared some of what he's gone through personally in a different part of the forum and I'm not going to mention that here. I would appreciate it if everyone not bring those up in this thread out of respect.

    Thanks CC for everything you've done and we wish you all the best. We hope that you can come back some day soon as you have truly, truly been missed.

    I didn't always appreciate his over-the-top comedy mix of Don Rickles and Andy Kaufman. We disagreed on plenty.

    This is a loss.

    CC is legendary and he will be missed. He was a great debater and a refreshing voice here. Like Red has already said, his contributions both in the background and foreground are immeasurable. A unique and skilled individual whose style is inimitable.

    The man stood tall, and debated like no other. Yes, he will be/is missed.

    Oh dear. I'm very sorry to hear this. CC mentored me through the troubled early months of my membership at DP. I've missed him for some time now.
    I wish him well.

    A sad day for DP. CC was a great mod that took **** from no one. I hope he is doing well.

    I was a mod with him for several years, and I can say without reservation that he had a tireless dedication to making DP the best it could be.

    Re: Thanks to CaptainCourtesy

    No words can fully express my gratitude to our Captain on a very personal level.

    On the forum, you were a fierce debater when appropriate, but never used you authority as leverage. If anything, you went out of your way not to.

    CC was part of the personae of the forum, he permanently defined it in many ways upstairs and downstairs, and brought a positive, unique effect to the forum along with himself. Often, he could hear people for who they really are (setting aside his teasing and flaming at which he could not be matched) - whether the person liked his analysis or not. He could make a person think, including about themselves with his skilled and thoughtful insight.

    Captain, what higher compliment is there than what so many of us know? Setting aside any politics: You are a good man. I wish you all the best that life can bring to you and your own.
