Support Stephenie Meyer (Youtube Project)

After my article defending Stephenie, there was a great backlash against me across forums and other sites for what I said (although, thankfully, drowned out by the enormous support from the rest of the Twilight community). Not only did I receive hateful comments directed at me but also groups of people spreading harsh comments about Stephenie’s personal character.
I found this appalling, especially as some claimed (through email and comments to me) to have met her (a claim I doubt highly). I then took a trip through the forums (sometimes similar to taking a trip through Mordor) and I found a growing trend of intensely personal attacks against Stephenie: all of which were completely untrue, and yet were leading unsuspecting readers to believe that Stephenie is some sort of monstrous hybrid troll/beast.
I am guessing that in Stephenie position it is hard to defend herself against these attacks, as anything she says will either be misconstrued by the media or taken falsely by the fans. So it is really up to the people who have met her at book signings to vouch for her against the untrue comments from other people.
Thus, I decided it was time for the fans to come out of their cubbyholes and say something about this:
