I'm really tired of receiving Marijuana Ads from SparkPeople

Sunday, August 23, 2020



I don't smoke marijuana, I used to do but I'm done with that for decades. I am glad effort is being made to decriminalize it, and for legal use for medicinal purposes. However, Every spark email to me, for Diabetes and Diet, and others, includes this ad. It is bold, in my face, and I'm tired of it.

I'm not getting the ad because I click on marijuana sites, because I don't. I don't go into the Dark Web, nor do I go to questionable websites. But there is no way for me to get ahold of SparkPeople Administration. They refuse responsibility for what they send me. They also keep allowing hackers into the system posting spam and collecting who knows what personal information about us.

No. I'm not happy. SparkPeople went from a great site to one that is greedy, non-user friendly, refusing to protect us Sparkers. No. I'm going shopping around. If I don't hear from SparkPeople, once I find a place to go then I'm gone.

And I don't think that sparkpeople cares if I stay or go.

    I solved this by eliminating all mailings from SparkPeople "newsletter" kind of things, Daily exercise, Depression, Daily Recipes, etc.

    So far I'm continuing with WebMD, AARP, JAMA, National Institutes of Health, because they cover the spectrum.

    I have also figured if I'm opposing threats to privacy and more I should and have deleted my Facebook page, and will be doing that with Twitter, Instagram, and more this evening. More lies, hatred, and such are spread on those two formats. I have loaded the TOR browser and added features to my Vivaldi browser that allow me to avoid alot of hype and ads.

    Thanks for those coming to comment! Please stay safe and well.

    PS. The Dark Web is a part of the Deep Web where criminals of all types, kinds, and nations of origin post, buy, sell, steal, plot, and more.
    The Deep Web is what Google, Gmail, Yahoo and those types of Internet Service Providers sit on. Otherwise you'd have to mainly become a computer geek just to engage in those activities we take for granted.
