A link on page 2 of this thread leads to a 2004 thread in the Roddick forum where heya posted and others interacted with her. they seem to confirm it and they seem to know her so...
not sure those of us posting really even knew although in 2005 I came to that party late. Posters deb and fee would know better I suspect.
It's not quite the same without Mona Ostrich though
I miss that avatar as well, the posts just don' t resonate the same way.
