I kinda want to say something here, both because I know Tasha personally and because I've been subject to this kind of stuff myself from time to time. And no, I don't think you were in any way attacking her or putting words in her mouth.

When you put a theory out there on the internet or lecture on a subject frequently, sometimes it just doesn't matter how careful you are to couch your words in conservative "this is not the only way" lingo. People misquote you. Fans glom onto an idea -- especially a new shiny one that solves their problems like this bust-supportive thing -- and tell all their friends. Then before you know it, you're the person who said that this was The One True Way[tm] when you never said anything of the sort.

It sucks. But cults of personality tend to spring up all the time in hobbies like ours. And it doesn't matter how intellectually honest you are or how humble. Words you've never said get broadcast with your name attached to them.
