yep they do. If you go to "my home" there's a link for account/e-mail preferences and you can change it there.

When I read your story the first thing I thought was that someone was trying to embarass you. I mean, what are the chances?

Frankly, I'm surprised that sparkpeople isn't more aware that weight loss plans are personal to so many people...

Yeah, I really wish the web spiders didn't visit our sparkpages. I have the same username on like every site I'm on, and if you google it, you get my whole life story... I don't really want my weight loss to be included... ha!

Maybe I need to get a different username!! Go off the grid!

(Speaking of my username, a month ago or so, I googled my username, and apparently someone used it to sign up on an STD discussion board... no idea what happened there, since my username is intentionally very specific, so it will always be available if I want to use it somewhere! I'm thinking for some reason spammers used it on that site - there are actually 2 versions of it on the site - yardenxanthe and yardenxanthe1, both registered within minutes of each other. I couldn't figure out why someone would want to use my name to register somewhere embarrassing like that, unless they were trying to subtly embarrass me? Anyway, it's a mystery...)

Again, very sorry your privacy was violated like that!! So, they let you change your username on here??

I feel so responsible. I know you don't blame me, but I still feel like it's my fault. :*( I'm so sorry. :( :( :( :( :( It is extremely irritating that he has joined with no intention of losing weight.

I REALLY wish that spark people would allow closed spark pages so that only people you list as a friend can see your info.

that's just so weird... why would he do that? what an enormous loser. he must have an amazingly empty life that he has to fill it with petty violations of your privacy. so bizarre.

Didds, that SUCKS! I've been very secretive about this place - a friend of mine joined a similar website that doesn't seem quite as good at SP & when he was telling me I wanted to say "OH! I joined one like that too!" but even though he's a close friend, I don't want anyone to read some of the stuff I put up here. (besides you guys, of course)

Anyhow, I'd be furious as well - aurgh!

Ok, so I just spent the last 30 minutes deleting all the info off my spark page and then figuring out how to set it offline, and then readding the info.

Someone stalked me out on sparkpeople and I'm really effing upset. I don't think this thing will let me swear or I would be using the REAL EFF WORD FOR SURE.

IMO my weight loss plan is a personal thing, and my WEIGHT which was listed on my spark page is also and it was only for people I CHOSE to let see it which MOSTLY were people I know only online and my close "real life" friends and I feel so mother effing violated.

And he STALKED ME OUT and JOINED SPARKPEOPLE WITH NO INTENTION OF USING IT TO LOSE WEIGHT and WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?

God, I'm so upset.

I mean, in my journal and other journals I would only email people the link to my page because I didn't want just anyone reading it.

SO UPSET.
