DAN is an insurance company and a rather corrupt one...

I don't know exactly what you mean by "DAN bashing"? What are you saying? Are you trying to discredit fair and accurate criticism of Divers Alert Network?
Forget about DAN the non-profit. Insurance sales volume is the engine that drives DAN's tax evasion scheme, and many of their customers have followed them right down to the Cayman Islands where they set up their very own offshore phony companies to hide their income (ATTENTION IRS: CHECK THE DAN MEMBER LIST FOR TAX EVADERS).
Bottom line? Only DAN policy holders were locked out of chambers. That's not your fault. That's not my fault. That's not the chamber owner's fault. That's DAN's fault.
I have also heard stories of corruption, price-fixing and self-dealing at DAN Europe by some Italian guy named Alessandro Marroni. I'll check into it and post again if I can find more detailed info.
