Those kinds of pieces would stay on the site b/c they are a blog or article. But if you see members being featured in the Motivational Member section, they should be active and not have their pages set to private.
"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call "failure" is not the falling down but the staying down." Mary Pickford
"No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch."
Just an observation, but I have noticed many times (including today) that the featured Motivational Member has a "private" spark page. It seems odd that Spark People would feature someone in the email that is sent out when you aren't even able to view their page. Perhaps requiring that the member;s page be public and available for viewing before featuring them should be considered.
