Is it possible to "catch" an eating disorder?

In all the communities and journals I have read, I can't seem to find a concensus as to whether or not eating disorders can be "caught" from other sufferers - that is to say, whether immersing onesself in ED communities, thinsperation websites, ED journals and the like can trigger a real, genuine eating disorder. There are some that say it is possible, and some who dismiss these cases as fake and nothing more than another victim of the "eating disorders are a lifestyle" way of thinking. What do you think?

My apologies if this topic has already been discussed - I looked in the Memories and didn't find any topic quite like this.
