I am sorry this is happening to you, I know how much this hurts. I was attacked on a diabetes sparkteam in 2008 by other team members and that hurt more than if it was a stranger. They misunderstood something I posted and even though I apologized and explained better what I was trying to say they still attacked me all day every day for weeks. I left SP and only returned in the summer of 2010 when I found this wonderful team.
There are a few people in sparkpeople that think it is fun to antagonize and berate others. What you can do is
1) Change your sparkpage and blogs settings from public to semi-private (friends only). That means that only people you have accepted as friends can see your sparkpage and blogs.
2) Contact the SP administrations and let them know the user name of the person who is doing that. They will check and remove the person if they are violating the standards for the site. This have been done a couple times from attacks to members of this team. It may even be the same individual and in that case SP adm will take care of it.
3) Do not respond to the message in any fashion, just ignore what they said and be sure to delete their comment from your sparkpage or blog. If they are listed as friend remove them as a friend.
I know that you have thought this through and have done your research and are much better informed than that person.
