What on earth has happened to Elonka? She took a sudden Wikibreak on the 20th February, going cold turkey after being a 40-a-day woman trying to solve the Middle East problem all by herself. It seems odd that having achieved her goal of Arcbom-santioned unlimited power (as an "uninvolved" admin) in some of her favourite stamping grounds, she should suddenly give it all up.
Could it be that real life has finally caught up with her too? Was she actually laid off by Simutronics in their recent round of cutbacks? That would be a scurvy return for all her hard COI work as "General Manager of Online Community" boosting their vapourware in concert with her loyal staff. (BTW, any takers for replacing the term "admin" by "manager of online community"?)
In her absence, drama levels have been sadly in decline. BTW, did anyone notice the brief and inglorious career of User:IGDA, who rose and fell entirely during Elonka's absence? Obviously not a newcomer, equally obviously not the maestra herself, perhaps just a member of her fan club over-excited by the page at Elonka's Other Wiki where she coordinated an attempt to boost her fellow workers onto Wikipedia.
