So, I emailed the guy who wrote that article and MAN...am I ever shocked at his response! Here it is...

"Ordinarily I'd tell you to bugger off, but that's a reasonable request. The article has been removed from my website anyway; the only way you could have found it is by following a link I forgot about".

He also said, "Oh by the way, obviously you don't look anorexic. Hyperbole makes for good writing, and I was on a roll".

He seems like a nice guy actually! I do understand the need to be controversial to attract readers. I mean look at some of my fav music artists etc. I think what bothered me was the use of my REAL name linking to a group with my photos. Then again, maybe that information shouldn't have been open for the public to see in the first place. Anyways, lesson learned...keep my personal information PRIVATE!

You're taking it so good hun. Well like your usual self actually, super open minded and always ready to hear controversy.
Actually being called Twiggy is a compliment if you ask me. She was hot. ;-)

That's true about the privacy thing...

Good thing you contacted him!!! That's an interesting response too!! I don't get the "mocking people for the sake of humor" thing though (I understand his reasoning...just sounds a little high school to me...saying something cruel to get a laugh out of people)
