    I can see all of them but the helicopter ejector seat. They actually make them for military choppers.

Who Do I ask?

"That doesn't seem like grounds for a removal? Did you ask them why?"

    Just sparkmail any of the coaches and you should get a response. Maybe it was a mistake on someone's part?

Sorry that happened to you. I LOVE the picture of the waterfall behind your sparkpage.

    I have written some questionable things in my blogs and no one has asked me to remove them. Occasionally, someone will spark mail me and tell me they hated what I wrote but I then ask them, "why didn't you post something on the blog instead of wimping out and sending it in spark mail."? They rarely reply.

    I know there are other bloggers that have been asked to remove content (or had content removed); but I thought that SP would communicate with you first. Did you check your spark mail to see if anyone did e-mail you?

The guidelines for posting content are posted at http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource
/motivation_articles.asp?id=349 and the author of that article is Coach Jen (Jen Mueller); you might try e-mailing her.

    Clink on the "Community " button at the top of the Start page, and at the top of many other pages. Then click "Message Boards" and the scroll to "Get Help Here" and try the "Technical Support" or something like that. Ask about it there and then go back to that to see if answers show up.

Maybe even click on The SparkGuy button in your Friends on your SparkPage. Email him.

I'd think that this deletion was some quick response to someone's idea of "purity." I remember commenting that it was sort of weird--but weird is what most people are, in some ways, to everyone else! Taking this deletion really personally would be an over-reaction to their reaction. Heck, check out The Soapbox SparkTeam and see what people say there! I've been surprised that a bunch of that isn't edited out. emoticon

The blog removed

Thursday, December 08, 2011

The blog removed was the one about Moses as a baby parting the water in his bath.

    That's amusing, not offensive, unless you're one of those people who thing no one should ever joke about a religious figure.

    Apparently someone took offense. It wasn't one of my favorites but I didn't see anything that offensive about it. I hope you don't stop blogging because of it.

God Bless

    Well, that is strange. Maybe someone read some of the "forgotten" gospels about Jesus doing miracles as a young child in play and didn't like the mix in the Moses story. The Moses one is cute--just confused.

Oh, well, maybe because it is December?

Violation!

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

The weirdest thing! Someone removed one of my blogs and all the comments! Why would they do that? And who are they that are the censors? If this happens again, I will quit SparkPeople because I will no longer feel safe!

    Which blog was lost? I can't imagine any of your blogs being offensive to anyone. Please let us know what you find out.

    I'd like to know what it was about also. They will remove things occasionally if someone finds them offensive, sometimes they even remove people (if they're too obnoxious).

    Interesting... what was the blog about?

I agree about the help ticket/techinal assistance. If SP censored anything they would probably notify you somehow.

    I can't imagine anyone would do that! I'd ask for technical assistance - I do think they have had some problems with their site. I'm having to stop and restart constantly...it freezes up. Nothing else does that except SP. I really hope it's just a technical thing and not someone being rude.
