I honestly believe that Robert Venditti didn't like her and avoided using her. And this is coming from someone who isn't a rabid ultra fan of Carol Ferris. It was just pretty obvious how he would write her out of scenarios and avoid using her. He did the same thing to Arisia, which leads me to a couple conclusions:

Venditti doesn't like writing females prominently in his stories, Venditti doesn't like writing romance prominently in his stories, or both. Thus, he had little need for Carol Ferris.

It really seemed to me that he was purposely avoiding those aspects. I mean, after 80 something issues, or whatever it was, you think you would have seen more of that.
