Open Letter To D&D/WOTC—Please co-sign and re-share

Please RE-TUMBL and co-sign (my permission is granted to put this on blogs, forums etc
(I’m sick in bed, so Zak wrote the following):
This is a notice that any and all individuals that endorsed, contributed to-, or passed on (via tweet, Google+, blog, Tumblr etc) Tom Hatfield’s Fail Forward article (July 31, 2014)  about me (which contains multiple assertions that are provably inaccurate and defamatory*) with positive or no comment were, by malice or negligence, harassing or contributing to harassment of both Mandy Morbid and I (especially considering Mandy was in a hospital being hooked up to a feeding tube at the time). The same goes for anyone endorsing or passing on any of the false and defamatory assertions in it.
This means that if anyone who contributed to this harassment is ever employed by WOTC in any way for any fashion, WOTC and everyone else should consider this a harassment complaint against them. This also goes for anyone working at the Pathfinder Role-Playing Game .
Hiring any of these individuals will be considered to be ignoring charges of harassment against an LGBT disabled immigrant individual and her primary caregiver during a vulnerable time and hiring a known harasser .
This notice is in effect against every single individual who the article until such time as they publicly apologize and let me know they’ve done so.

I ask any other members of the community who have witnessed this harassment to co sign this letter by liking this or commenting to that effect below.

Nasogastric tube failed. There was talk of a Jtube peg but with #ehlersdanlossyndrome it’s way too risky to do the surgery to place it, and risk of infection, and it not staying in place. So now they are scrambling to find a way to safely place a nasojejunal tube, they are really worried about doing it endoscopically AND it’s the weekend so a lot of the specialists are not here. I’m in tremendous pain and they only got 30ccs of formula in. Still NPO of course & now I’m not allowed to even sip water except with pills. I just have to swish it around in my mouth & then spit it out. And my blood work is showing my potassium levels are dropping. Infuriating! #gastroparesis

I made them tape it this way. Much better. Thanks for the tips everyone! I’m waiting for the xray to confirm it’s in the right place, then the floor dietician to come see me & talk about the formulas that might be safe for me, then they can start trying to feed me. #gastroparesis is NOT an eating disorder it’s paralysis (partial in my case but still very troublesome) of the stomach. Many with #ehlersdanlossyndrome have it.
