So, you kinda broke my email.
I love you all dearly!! I have been trying to read everything that has been posted but, OHBOY, the amount of Livejournal comments have been huge!!
If you are trying to get a hold of me right away for something you need me to see, please go to twitter and mention @illadore -- and I will try to see it there. (Only do that if you're trying to contact me for something you need a response for right away.) Alternatively, try contacting me again via Livejournal.
Many, many, many shout-outs to reddit.com, fark.com, gawker.com, gizmodo.com, slashdot.org, Wil Wheaton, Neil Gaiman, John Scalzi, and dozens and hundreds of others. (Neil and Wil and Warren Ellis! My nerd life is complete!)
But the BIG THANK YOUs go first to Jeff Berry, fellow mediveal food nerd. He is the one who originally informed me about the magazine article. His blog is at http://www.panix.com/~nexus/cooking/
Second goes to Nick Mamamtas: http://nihilistic-kid.livejournal.com/ -- He is the one who originally picked up the story and from there it went viral. Nick's an amazing author.
I am also AFK for the next day or so (I did not expect to get internet famous today!) but if you are trying to get a hold of me, I will do my best to get back to you.
Last but not least -- I have had no personal contact from Cooks Source. They have my number and my email and as far as I can tell, have not tried to personally contact me. I have had some people report that the editor responded via Facebook but it was...an interesting comment and not the response I was asking for. (Which was -- 1 apology on Facebook, 1 apology in the magazine and $130 to Columbia School of Journalism as a donation.) I am not actually sure it was a "real" response.
More later. Thank you all for your comments. Please be kind and remember the Golden Rule. Please do not harass the advertisers.
PS. And remember -- Be mighty!*
