So, there is one thing with Spark People that bugs me, like...a lot.
I am fine with little things, like that the food stuff is not always dead on, and the same goes for fitness, but nothing is perfect, and Spark is pretty awesome.
Except for this one thing.....
I absolutely can not stand when people comment on someone elses blog or message board post without reading the whole post, or making sure they are fully aware of what is going on before they comment. It drives me bonkers that on a site where people are depending on genuine support from a community of people who know what they are going through, some people will comment with just the stupid symbols because you get points.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the points. I am SUPER competitive, so I love getting closer and closer to that trophy. But when I want to earn points for commenting, I only comment if I feel that I can be of help, or be supportive, and I never ever comment with just a symbol so I can get the points quick. I also make sure when someone is having an issue (like the tightness in my calves that I posted about) that I know the full story before giving them any advice. I don't just read it quickly, post, get my points and get out of there.
