I was informed today that our fellow forumer IpseDixit died today. Without going into the circumstances, I think we can all agree that this fucking sucks.

Ipse was one of the first dudes from here that I ever met in real life. I feel slightly ashamed admitting that I don't remember exactly when it was, but it was at the very least a good six or seven years ago. Without having met him, and having realized that people from the internet aren't all crazy people (except in the best possible way), I'm not sure I'd have been so willing to meet so many people from here.

He was a dude who liked fast cars, anime, and good food. When we could be bothered to play a pen and paper RPG he always played the most bizarre characters that consistently entertained. Many nights were spent discussing the finer points of the Fast & Furious movies, usually without actually watching said movies.

He was a dude who offered to get my old Camry fixed for super cheap when the transmission gave out. He was the best person to go for car advice, as in addition to being really into cars he also worked for a mechanic.

He was my friend, who I didn't see enough of when I still had the chance to. And I'll miss him dearly.

Not sure what else to say here.

    Wow.

    I never really interacted with him but have been around long enough he seemed like a cool dude.
    It's especially surreal after seeing him post just the other day about his new haircut in the fashion thread. I literally just saw him.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    My deepest sympathies to his family as well as to his friends here.

    I know he was part of the Bay Area group, but I never had the chance to meet him at any of the gatherings. :(

    Don't really have anything to say. Nothing coherent, at least. Got the call while I was at work, still haven't processed it, really.

    Bendery, he really was. Andrew was a class act. I never heard a crass or gossipy word from him. He was so fun to hang out with. He was also really giving and generous; when we couldn't drive down to him, he made a real effort to drive up and see us. He was the first non-family member to come and see Anya when she was born.

    He's one of the few forumers to have met my Mom when I took her to Comic Con in 09.

    I never really talked to him, but I know that a lot of people I do talk to on here were friends with him. I'm so sorry to hear this. You're in my thoughts, and I hope you're able to get through this in whatever way you need to.

    Oh no, no no no no. Ipsedixit was one of the few people I interacted with on the regular on these forums via the car threads.

    He was a great dude by all accounts and even though I only knew him through a web forum, my heart is heavy with this news.

    This fucking sucks oh my god.

    damn, He was one of the good ones...

    He really was... nearly 8 years and his only infraction was part of a joke.

    On a serious note, I didn't really know him, just sort of saw him around. I'm sure this isn't an original thought or anything, but every so often something comes along to make me realize how long I've been here, how much has happened to me, and how much I've changed. Everyone who's been here that long is a different person at a different stage in their lives than they were when they joined. The forum population is aging, and we will see more of these over the years as life inevitably happens to us.

    And when it does, hundreds of people we've never even met and barely interacted with will come to a thread made by the ones who have to express their condolences, because the world is small now. I find that both humbling and oddly comforting.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    Ipse sounds like a righteous dude. I'm sad I've never known him.

    Anya saw I was upset and she kept asking "Daddy okay? Daddy what happen?"

    And I asked for a hug and she walked up to me, only to turn away at the last second and start laughing.

    He and I interacted quite a bit off the forums back in the day, but that tapered off over the years and I can't say that we were very close. But he always came across as a genuinely nice guy who just wanted to do nice things and for the people around him to get along and be happy. The world needs more guys like him, and it really sucks that he's gone.

    @Moriveth and @Janson I know he was special to the both of you, for a variety of reasons. Sincerest condolences to you guys and to his family.

    Yeah, if there was a word to describe Ipse, it'd be genuine.

    He was just a good dude. Can't say it any more succinctly than that.

    I realize I'm never going to feel like I saw him enough, even if I saw him every day, but that doesn't make me regret not seeing him more.

    for just about every day for past couple of years until recently, I used a french press given to me by Ipse and his (then) girlfriend

    it was a super thoughtful gift

    I'm drinking a carefully measured whiskey sour in his honor, right now
