Insurance Companies Try to Subpoena Anorexic’s Blog

The insurer says that eating problems are not “biologically based” and are therefore not covered.

The privacy backlash continues to ripen as everybody starts to realize the vulnerability of putting everything online. I can’t wait to start getting denied for genetic tendencies.
