False SPAM Reports:
As stated above, members of Sparky's Answers agree to receive certain email from us as part of their membership on our website. It is very easy to configure your account to receive less email, and to cancel your account if you wish to stop receiving all Sparky's Answers emails. However, some members choose to falsely report our email as SPAM, either to their ISPs or the anti-SPAM organizations like SpamCop. In the event that a member falsely reports our email to them as SPAM, their account will be permanently deactivated, and they will not be permitted to reactivate it, nor will they ever be allowed to create a new account on Sparky' Answers.
Any information submitted by members to the "interactive" portions of our website is considered to be Interactive Content (henceforth "Content").
