Copy of a post I made 10/1/14, as it will probably be deleted.

I totally appreciate all that is done on this site... both the visible and all that is done behind the scenes.
So many people work so hard to provide a great FREE resource, and people have to nit-pick when everything on the site is not tailored to them and them alone.
Like the poster below me, I choose to extract the relevant and ignore the rest.

I get a bit angry when I see posts like this one. So many people complaining about so many things.... but they refuse to do anything about it.
If you do not like the emails you CHOSE to receive, choose to not receive them.
If you do not like the meal plans, plan your own meals.
If you do not like the ads, use an AdBlocker.
If you think Weight Watchers does things better, use their site.
etc., etc., etc.

And really, announcing that you will leave... in five days?

    Hi Luann-- you express my thoughts too!-- When I see offensive comments, I wonder why folks like to be insulting and mean spirited-- I have even read some pretty nasty comments on "Spark Recipes"--- Gimme a break--!!
    I can hear my sweet mama saying-- "Mind your manners!" Geez--

    Sometimes constructive criticism helps to make a better mousetrap. But if it is just complaining because something just doesn't work right for that particular individual, it usually shows where that person's focus is at. There are things that I dislike or don't need about or from SP, but as you note, just don't use it. But I credit them for helping me lose my 40 lbs in 8 months and not only keeping it off, but continuing on a further path of fitness and health. God bless, SP and all it's beautiful staff and members.

    The negativity amazes me for something that is free and so helpful.

    Sometimes, free things have no value to some. I can see the beauty in any gift given. Sparkpeople is a great GIFT in my life. I appreciate it as well!
