Do you ever revoke membership or take away forum privileges?

Unfortunately, we have had to do this every so often.

For serious violations of our Terms of Use Agreement, we remove your account immediately and, depending on the violation, we may turn over any pertinent information to the authorities.

For less serious violations, we like to employ a "three strikes and you are out" policy, but this is completely up to our discretion.

Occasionally, we give "time outs" as well. If someone is having trouble acting politely in our Forums, we will temporarily remove their posting privileges.

How do I close my account?

We're sorry to see you go! If you really do want to close your account, Contact us directly to request that. We will disable your account and unsubscribe you from site notifications.

NOTE: If you have added any public recipes, cookbooks, menus or reviews to our site, they will remain after you leave. We keep them active because other members may have saved those recipes, etc., and it would be unfair to take them away!
