As for attacks on Whittemores and WPI is best handled by them. Honestly, it is their issue, not ours. They are big girls and boys, they can handle it. Now, contacting this young lady's bosses to complain of unprofessional conduct might be a good thing.
Yup, I wouldn't pay any attention but if people really want to respond, send a snail mail to her research adviser or department chair! And quote from her blog! Andrea should send her a personal letter ---- that might shock her out of her apathy that words hurt real people. Caveat is do we really know this person is the true blogger or someone else using her as a cover?
