Ask any high fashion model, they're sure to know what TFS is because somewhere along the line someone's shown it to them, and they've either gotten creeped out or offended in the majority of the cases. Naturally when you're offended or disturbed by things people say about you, you completely dismiss those people. In this case, most models you ask will say this site is for stalkers.
I was creeped out when I was first shown the site. I'd never seen anyone discuss or talk about me before and I didn't know being a runway model meant having my name known either. Most don't even realize that comes with the job when coming on board. I know a lot of models who are embarrassed by TFS and what people say on it. They're afraid when their friends and family google them they'll see what negative things are said about them and rightfully so because they are normal with normal friends and that sort of thing is indeed humiliating in some degree no matter how thick your skin is.
On the other hand I know a lot of models who really like the site. It's not all evil and sneering of course lol. For the less controversial it's great for fetching the latest pictures from the shows and backstage and seeing that you do have supporters and people rooting for you to do well. The site runs by people, it's nice when the people are nice and can be the opposite when they're not so pleasant, naturally.

If I was a model looking at my thread on this forum and read a lot of offensive comments I'd just be like "To Hell with them, I'm in magazines, I'm special, I'm fierce" :p

Well it's their basic impression and retort to the people who in their minds spend all day looking up pictures of them and keeping up with everything they're doing and follow their work day in and day out etc
though obviously there's more to it than that and obviously not so obsessive sounding, it's just their first outside perspective speaking. A dismissive defense mechanism I suppose?

I understand that for sure.
but they shouldn't think bad about their "fans" if you can call them fans of course there are people who can be called fans and those who are just into fashion and models.

they should be proud of us freaks I hope you like your fans

I imagine they are all very flattered...the media doesn't really focus on models as much as they used to so it's probably cool to see people supporting them and discussing their work.

I like my "fans" though I don't call them that. For me I can't use that word seriously lol "E-minions" I've coined (geekier I guess) but I think a majority of mine come from being interactive with people through a variety of websites so I have a better understanding and advantage to relate I suppose.

I think it's good to have someone who sees that from the model perspective,but I haven't seen much work of you..maybe I'll have a look at your topic.

There was something in Raquel's thread..an interviewr I think showed her a blog were brianboy photoshopped some raquel pictures (after that he stood beside her^^) and she liked that and thought it was funny...and I think they should be happy someone cares about model's hard work

I hope the models don't read the first page of their threads and just stop. A lot of the biggest model threads on tfs start out with a surprising amount of criticism.
