Here is the Christmas version, my present to everyone here on E-R-org.

Would that be 'lumpen' coal?

I barely recall what the fuss was about with MMND, other than it was 'interesting'. Not so interesting to make me want to go back and re-read the thread though.

Are you sure that final post wasn't something that just rhymed with "wish you well"?

Thanks so much for posting this historical capture. As a fairly recent member I have learned more about ER here then anywhere else, and have enjoyed the process greatly.

Who knew that retirement leads to such great humor and wit!

I notice that her blog seems to have gone dark since last August. Anyone know of an update, or did that host shut her down like Google did?

Speaking of badgers... There was a great poster over in the Motley Fool, during the time of Dory, Intercst and me . He went by the handle Badger. He later went on to start 72t.net and is an expert on the subject.

Did he ever join this board?

I did the same thing Nords - went to her blog and noticed the last update was in August. Interesting how MMND was here for a short period of time yet many of us remember her clearly. Lots of others have come and gone in a similiar fashion.

BTW, what happened with Google shutting her down? I don't recall hearing about that.

Ah, yes, MMND. Quite a "special" individual. I always wondered what she was selling (aside from her ego).

Hysterical to go back and read twaddle defending her. Almost reads like a shill.
