You dug this up exactly a year to the day. I had to laugh, especially since I forgot about it. Sparking for 6 years less consistantly after every "upgrade" but it is still a great site! Congrats to you for going strong for 3 years.
When I set up a spark page a long time ago, there was an option for receiving emails about partner deals and such. I assumed Spark was getting paid for these and since I was using the site for free, I had no issue accepting these emails (it was usually Curves) but the last one I recieved this weekend was for Herbal Magic, promising me that I could lose 20 lbs in only 2 weeks. I find this a bit tacky. It seems like Spark is promoting the very thing it is against. I have changed that setting so I won't receive anymore special offers, but I do think Spark should be paying more attention to what their partner offers are that they are sending out to everyone.
