There has been much comment about a spark member's blogs being removed and the member in question leaving SparkPeople. Many are following this member and leaving SP but before you do, make sure you are going of your own accord.
Some blogs really have been of "questionable" content - SP has to not only serve the public for free, but to remain free and available it cannot risk lawsuits, especially from content made by members.
There are rules and regulations for everything in life - I personally have been "mildly offended" by some blogs but I just choose not to leave comments on them.
If you wish to join what is being described as a "grand exodus" I will wish you well - but make sure you are following your own heart and not any mistaken beliefs. Do not follow blindly over the cliffs.
**edit: I do not know which blog was removed, only the blogger. I stopped reading the blogs months ago when they become TMI for me. (too much info)
There are others on SP that give TMI on their personal lives - this is their choice - I choose not to read them anymore.
I only learned of the problem through my "friend feed" and the blogging challenge I was involved in this past week with the 5% Spring Challenge Spark Team/Spirited Underdogs sub-team.
