You can't stop people posting things, only report them when they do. There is a "Report inappropriate comment" on everybody's spark page and blog, and that is the appropriate way to let the staff know of something that is not within the community guidelines.

It was just a shock to see it as a featured blog---but I know the rules on here so that is why I reported it---but I was not going to go to that person's page after seeing that ---- something like that should never have been posted---call me a prude if you like but that kind of stuff needs to be on a private site, not a public site.

It was April 20's one, you can view it now on the daily email's page and change the date. The user has removed the photo from her blog though, due to user complaints.

Given it was a joke about flashing, the image of some people, nude, from the back, was entirely in context.

But Spark does have a community guideline that states no nudity. The user has complied. End of issue, really.

Perhaps spark should be a little more careful in picking member's blogs to promote and ensuring the images contained within do not violate the CG. But then, perhaps no actual human being is involved in this process and simply a highly-voted blog is randomly chosen each day. That makes a lot more sense, really, and would explain it.

Personaly I found it tasteful and not offensive.

It was featured on a Spark email ---I did not go to the blog but it would be a picture that we all would see when we opened that email---might have been sent out this weekend---either Friday or Saturday as I had a busy weekend and was late getting to a few emails. It has to be that person's avatar to be seen there.

Hi,

I am not too sure what blog you are referring to, but if it's a member's blog, you do have the option of reporting it as an inappropriate blog.

Could not believe that blog was chosen as a motivator with that picture of bare rear ends!
