I've seen some results from the "Who is Miss Noma from Liverpool?" survey at the bottom of the IUOMA main page.

I am receiving votes (albeit a few but still beating Mark Bloch) for being Miss Noma. Others have asked me privately if I am Miss Noma.

I assure you I am not Miss Noma. The artist formerly known as Dark Wall and who isn't at IUOMA anymore is not Miss Noma either.

I am now coming around to the point of view that Miss Noma is Valentine Mark Herman.

If Val is not Miss Noma, I think he just needs to settle it in public with a quick denial.

Angie, a lot of mail artists are friends w/ SH on FB. I doubt he trades with people any more, but he keeps in contact. SMILE was a great zine.

He invented Karen Eliot. He is Karen Eliot, one of the best known multiple-user identities.

Here is another British guy who still has a finger in EVERYTHING. No, I'm not proposing NOMA LISA is SH. But it's similar territory. I notice on FB SH appears to be using several different identities and/or people are impersonating him.

That "cow" has the cock and balls of Bill Gaglione ...

fact is that Miss Noma has an original Cow from Rocola, and he only sent them to the names on the cow. So that limits it down. Who can have acces to such an original?

As far-fetched as it sounds, I have wondered if Miss Noma could be Grigori Antonin. Wait before you scoff (?)!

1) Grigori came out of nowhere with a tremendous knowledge of Ray Johnson and the network. Yet no one has ever been able to identify who he really is. But he had to have had some previous incarnation.

2) Grigori disappeared again. I think about a year a ago.

3) A friend told me Grigori was trying to circulate a rumor that he had died. I don't like fake death hoaxes at all. But it goes with the territory. People have tried to start rumors that both Ray Johnson and David Zack are still alive.

4) It's very possible Grigori will re-invent himself as yet another character.

Miss Noma is on this IUOMA group too and must be laughing out loud with all those speculations. Maybe the secret should stay a secret, that is the fun of it all........

Miss Noma may travel.

I can say with that 99.9% clarity that Miss Noma and Research are two completely different people. I followed that path too, briefly. You can rule it out.

Mark Bloch can be found a lot these days in the Trashpo group on FB. He seems to be taking a serious interest in Trashpo and the teachings of DK. I can't imagine Mark being able to inhabit the persona of Miss Noma.

I really need to stop the speculation. But Miss Noma appears to be British. Gu supports that. But Miss Noma uses a Fluxus West stamp. Isn't that an old designation for the Flux folk in the Western part of the USA? Miss Noma seems to have some connection to that regional group. It has sort of declined, I think from having been more active.
