    So very sad to hear this.

    I don't post here frequently, but I do read the forum as often as I can, and Ziggy's posts were always informative and enjoyable. He seemed a dear man.

    My condolences to his family and loved ones.

    I'm so sad to hear this... RIP, Ziggy, and thanks for all your posts and insights! My condolences to his family and friends.

    @karne - thanks for starting this thread and informing us of what has happened. Sad as I am to hear the news, it would be sadder not to know. The internet is such an ephemeral thing and it would be sad if someone who has been such a presence here, was just lost between the cracks, so to speak, and we never found out.

    I didn't know him but this is a very sad news. Although you don't personally know people on the internet it feels like you know them, when you read them and exchange opinions.

    There is a member of FSU with the same nickname. Is that the same person?

    Yes, it's him. He was an active poster both here and on FSU.

    Rest in peace, Ziggy, you will be missed. Condolences to his loved ones.

    I loved that Ziggy had something to say about every skater, and was interested in both the elite of skating, and in the skaters from small federations, struggling along with little monetary support, and found both good and bad things to say about all.

    I loved that Ziggy was so passionate about every discipline, and was so well informed about everything.

    I will miss his posts so much!

    My condolences to his friends and family. If we who knew him only as a virtual presence are so affected by his death, how much more they will miss him.

    OMG Noooooo. I actually knew him, then. I can't believe it, I'm really sad. What happened? We just exchanged some comments with each other a week ago.

    I know, we were exchanging messages recently enough and his last post was quite recent and there seemed to be no sign of him being close to death (few would knowingly spend some of their last moments on an internet forum) and now he's gone. I agree that it's strange how much this affects me considering I didn't know him personally, but from the messages we exchanged I really liked him....Im going to miss him a lot.

    Agree with LRK, thank you Karne for ensuring Ziggy got the recognition he deserves.

    It is, isn't it? I mean it's like a double loss, somehow.
    You "know" the person but you don't actually know him/her, and feels like a missing opportunity.
    I had a very good friend in an italian forum, but we never meat actually. She died so young and I felt terrible. I was like "I haven't met her yet. It can't be true,".
    I don't know if I'm making any sense here, but that's how I felt.
