    I was thinking about Esta earlier myself. I used to enjoy reading her posts. I also hope she's okay. Maybe like some of the other past posters she just lost interest/had other things to do.

    I love how you highlight her name in upper case. Seriously, she was queen of the caps lock.

    Doesn't she post like her annual crazy post in the off season right before a new season starts?

    Tarred by the black mark of tarasova I assume!

    As a tribute, I've pasted ESTA's last post below-- she retourned to let us know that Ussova's (a woman 60 yrs of age) baby is a LEI. :D

    I HAVE RITOURNED TO TELL YOU USSOVA`S BABY IS A LEI

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    HELLO FSU FROM ESTA . I DO NOT FALLOW FIGURE SKATING MUCH OFTEN BECAUSE I HAVE BABIES MY BOY HAS NINE YEARS OLD TWO DAYS PAST AND MY TWINS HAVE SEVEN YEARS OLD. ICE DANCE CANNOT BE THE SAME AFTER PASHA RE-TIRES BECAUSE USSOVA STEALS HER PARTNER WITH BRIBERTY AND PROSTITUTES AND LEIS AND DECEPTION.

    I READ IN NEWS THAT MAYA USSOVVA HAS THE BABY AND I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS. THE USSOVA ``SOAP OPERA`` WITH LEIS AND DEPRESSIONS AND DELERIOUS LIVES AGAIN. I HAVE RITOURNED TO TELL YOU THAT MAYA USSOVA`S BABY IS A LEI. DO YOU THINK THIS WOMAN SHE SAYS SHE HAS 46 YEARS OLD AND IN TRUTH SHE HAS 60 YEARS OLD CAN HAVE A BABY. USSOVA THINKS WE ARE FOOLS. SHE THINK WE CANNOT SEE HER BLACK TEETH AND HER RINCLED SKIN AND HER OLD SAGGING BONES. EVEN A CHILD WILL SAYS USOVA HAS 60 YEARS OLD OR MORE.

    IT IS A LEI THAT USOVA HAS A BABY. DO YOU THINK THIS WOMAN THIS CHAIN-SMOKER THIS ALCCOHOLIST CAN NOT SMOKE AND DRINK ? DOES ANYONE SEES USSOVA WHILE SHE IS ``PREGNANT``. NO BECAUSE USSOVA IS NEVER PREGNANT. USSOVA BUYS HER BABY FROM POOR WOMAN. POOR WOMAN DOES NOT KNOW BABY WILL BREATH USSOVA` SMOKE AND SMELL HER ALCCOHOL AND HAVE MOTHER IN 17 TIMES DEPRESSION. I PITTY THIS POOR CHILD. I HOPE MOTHER KNOWS USSOVA IS THE DANGER TO THE BABY AND BEGS TO RETOURN THE BABY TO RITHFULL MOTHER.

    I PRAY SOMEONE WILL INVESTIGAGE. USSOVA DOES NOT BIRTH THIS CHILD AND CAN NOT HAVE THE CHILD. THIS POOR GIRL BABY I WILL PRAY FOR HER EVERY NIGHT. PLEASE PRAY FOR ``USSOVA`S`` BABY. I CANNOT BELIEVE USSOVA HER LIFE IS THE ``SOAP OPERA`` IT IS FICTION IT IS LEI IT IS FAIRY TAIL. DO NOT BELIEVE HER LEIS THIS IS BIGGEST. I NEVER THINK USSOVA WILL GO SO FAR TO MAKE-BELIEVVE BABY WITH SIXTY YEARS OLD.

    xoxxoxoxoxoxoxo love,yours,esta.

    OMG, this is crazy! I had almost forgotten.

    This 'ESTA' is different from the Esther/"Esta"who I thought for a while was this one. No way, Jose. ROTFL!

    I remember the first time I came across one of Esta's posts and wondered why on earth everything was in caps. I soon came to learn that was just Esta's way and that she was passionately positive about a particular skater whom I was ... not (let's just leave it at that).

    Here an article translated by ESTA:


    MY FRIEND SENDS ME INTRESTING NEW ARTICLE WICH SHE TRANSLATES. I THINK, YOU WILL FIND AMAZING.

    XOXOXOXO LOVE, YOURS, ESTA.

    Maya Usova has no gold medal, no husband, and no baby
    Ost Express
    28 March 2004

    In the World Championships of 2004, Maya Usova who is the vice coach to Tatiana Tarasova`s pupils watched from the audience as her former husband Aleksander Zhulin brought his team to the gold medal. Usova`s team Chait and Sakhnovsky from Israel finished only in the seventh place. Formerly in the third place Chait and Sakhnovsky have many bad programs since becoming joined to the group of Tarasova and Usova. The promising career of the Israeli is fallen because of bad coaching and choreography from the deceptive pairing which wants to drink vodka and smoke cigarettes merely.

    Indeed Usova was drinking and smoking very often at Dortmund. This woman of 40 years old has no husband, no gold medal, and no baby. Usova first lost her husband because of her cold nature and her lunatic personality. Many people witnessed the romantic relationship between Usova and the Olympic Champion Oxana Baiul. Baiul has the thing that Usova loses, the gold medal from Lillihammer Olympics.

    Usova began her scheme to corruption with alcohol and cigarettes and stealing money. When the 16 years old Baiul has become destroyed Usova then attacked the woman who wins the other gold medal in Lillihammer Oxana-Pasha Grishuk. Usova first began the terror with flooding Grishuk's appartment. She then made the small fire near to Grishuk's appartment. Every day she appeared in the ice rink with no contract ( in fact Usova still has no contract ) smoking and laughing at the door. In foreign competitions she sended many prostitutes to Evgeny Platov. Finally in the ``Tom Collins`` tour Usova herself became the oldest occupation to Platov and she succeeded in winning his partnership. The two do not riceive successes in the competitions by marks of 4,5 and the last place many times. Usova destroyed the career of Platov too. Such this able dancer must retire and must coach because his partner is so weak. Usova makes so many destructions to gold medals of Lillihammer that it wonders where was Usova to the famous collapse of Sergei Grinkov. She is living in Lake Placid in the time.

    Usova has no baby. Last year she became pregnant by famouse businessmen (many say Tom Collins himself) and she celebrated with vodka and cigarettes. Usova kills her baby with the bad behaviors she makes her whole life. In the World Championships Usova sees her former husband with wife and child and now World Champion of coaching. Grishuk has a child also. Baiul is now the star of ``Stars on Ice`` and soon marries to her fiance. Only Usova has no gold medal, no husband, and no baby. She is the sad woman with the cigarettes and thealcohol, the apprentice of Tatiana Tarasova in corruption and intrigue.

    I remember the LEI post fondly. Awww.

    Is Esta a French speaker because this
    sounds like one as in "mon fils a neuf ans and les jumeaux ont sept ans."

    :lol:Ah, Esta.

    I think there are at least two different Estas and probably three or more.

    The first (Esta #1) was almost definitely a pseud of Pasha's aunt, who lived in Germany. This Esta posted on Adrian Chew's board, FSWorld.

    Then there was another (Esta #2), whom I believe to be somehow associated with Natalia Linichuk and/or UDel, who posted first on Brad Miller's FSWurld and on this incarnation of FSU. This Esta was (I think) a spoof of the previous Esta. For awhile, she used a variety of other aliases - Dancer (who claimed to be an international judge), Pasha is a Living Legend, etc. Sometimes the pseuds would talk to one another. :lol: It's possible that Esta #1 and Esta #2 are the same person, but I don't think so.

    Then there's a third Esta (Esta #3), who posted on gymnastics message boards. This one is definitely a spoof of the spoof and almost certainly a native English speaker. The Dmitriev post does not match the ones here.

    I always wonder what Pasha's aunt must've thought to see her pseudonym suddenly come "alive" and then multiply and take on a life of its own. :lol:

    Italian and Spanish also express age that way. I'd always imagined Esta as an older woman with 17 cats and a ouija board, chain-smoking and knocking back the vodka while posting about the black mark of TAT and Ussova's leis.

    Seemed like that to me as well! Also agree that she might be from Pasha or another competitor's camp.
    I miss her funny posts sometimes.

    ESTA?
    Estonian Skating Trolls Association?
    Excellent Scott/Tessa Analysis?
    Elusive Stupid Triple Axels?
    Ekaterina Sobolieva Tutukova Androkova (newest Russian jumping bean)?

    I wondered what this ESTA org. was until I read this delightful thread! I wonder if the letters really do stand for something interesting. I never saw the original posts but sure hope she(?) comes back!

    THANK YOU for explaining the history of "Esta," I always wondered how this whole thing started. And as someone who absolutely could not stand Oksana Grishuk when her ego turned her into "Pasha," boy, am I glad I stayed out of it!

    I don't know why but at first I thought Esta was Russian just because she was so emotionally invested in Russian coaches and skaters. :shuffle:

    and Russian gymnasts. I knew nothing about ESTA, but going through the archives, ESTA appears to have liked predicting things. For example, one of the predictions was that Anna Pavlova would win 6 gold medals at the last Olympics. That obviously never transpired, but one of the predictions is still to be determined either way - that Alena Leonova will win the Olympic title in Sochi. If Alena does win, maybe ESTA will come back then.

    This is ESTA's post from the 8th August 2008 (the date of the opening ceremony to the 2008 Olympics):-

    "ANNA PAVLOVA WILL WIN 6 GOLD MEDALS!!!!!

    I PRAY, THAT ANNA PAVLOVA WILL WIN 6 GOLD MEDALS. SHE IS, THE BEST, THE MOST GRACE FULL, MOST WONDER FULL GYMNAST.

    I PRAY, THAT SHAWN JOHNSON WILL MISS HER FAULT AND FALL ON BARS. I PRAY, THAT BAD TECHNIK AMERICANS WILL WIN NONE MEDAL!!!!!!!! AND I PRAY, THAT CHINESE WHO LEI AND CHEAT LIKE USSOVA WILL BE COME IN THE FORTH PLACE.

    RUSSIA FOR OLYMPIC GOLD! ANNA PAVLOVA SIX GOLD MEDALS!!!!! MAY THE OLYMPICS BEGGIN!!!!!

    xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox, love,yours, esta.
    "

    This was from the 7th March 2009:-

    "ALENA LEONOVA WILL BECOME 2014 GOLD MEDALIST

    i think, alena leonova has perfekt technique and lovvely programs and best artistry. i cannot believe, she defeates caroline zhang. i pray please judges make low marks for zhang!!!!!! and they do!!!!!!! LEONOVA WILL BECOME OLYMPIC CHAMPION YOU WILL SEE!

    xoxoxoxooxoxo, love, yours, esta.

    this baiul tirade was amazing. from 2/12/2007. :oksana1:


    ASK YOUR SELF ``WHO IS RISPONSIBLE FOR DRUNK SANA``? THE UNSWER IS SIMPLE. MAYA USOVA. ASK YOUR SELF ``WHO INTRO-DUCES SIXTEEN YEARS OLD GOOD CHRISTIAN GIRL TO CIGARETTES!!!!! AND ALCHOHOL!!!! AND PERVERSIONS OF LESBIONISM!!!! THE UNSWER IS MAYA USOVA!!!!!!!!! THIS WOMAN WHO IS NEARLY FORTY YEARS OF AGE BE-FRIENDS SIXTEEN YEARS OLD GIRL. SHE MAKES HER IN DEPRESSION AND MAKES HER TO EMITATE PASHA-OKSANA GRISHUK AND BECOME JALOUS AND TELL LEIS. I THINK, BAIUL WHILL BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN GIRL TODAY IF SHE NEVER MEETS MAYA USOVA. IT IS TRUE SHAME!!!!!!! TRUE SHAME!!!!!!! FOR BAIUL TO EVER MEET USOVA. I CRY FOR TERRIBLE TWIST OF FATE WHICH MAKES USOVA BE-FRIEND BAIUL. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo, love,yours, esta.

    Another Esta pseudonym was Moscowfan. There were three of them-- Esta, Dancer, and Moscowfan-- posting at the same time and echoing each other.

    She found that out after she started practicing Russian Orthodox Crhistianity. Not sure if she stopped and started practicing Judaism.

    Oksana was in her twenties when she found out about her Jewish heritage. Based on recent photos she posted on her FB page, I know she definitely celebrates Christmas.

    If I remember correctly, this quote was from a poster named DATA and not ESTA. Also, I distinctly remember later on in that thread that DATA believed the only reason Michelle Kwan (or anyone else) ever talked to Artur Dmitriev at the 1998 Olympics was because of his sock. Or am I just dreaming that I read that way back when...?

    I HAVE JUMPED THE DOUBLE SALCHOW
