She had been an active member since 2005 and if you saw a Liosliath anywhere else on the internet it was probably her. MetaFilter was one of her internet homes and she was frequently in AskMe helping people with computer/IT issues, personal situations, language questions and Morroccan culture and travel questions. She wrote a blog about Morocco
which had been linked in AskMe before. Here is her obituary
. If you want to know how to pronounce her username, she's explained it here
Apologies for the delay in posting here. I was contacted by a former partner and MeFite shortly after the Marathon Bombings with the news and he specifically mentioned how much MetaFilter was a part of her daily life and how much the community meant to her. If people want to contact me privately I can put you in touch with him unless he decides to post here.
