The Spruce Eats Commenting Guidelines

Welcome to The Spruce Eats Community. We are dedicated to fostering a safe and respectful community where, as readers, you can share your experiences. We invite lively discussion about the content on our website, and, as such, are interested in posting thoughtful comments that are relevant to the recipe or subject.

Now, let’s jump into our commenting policies:

  • Communities are made of real people. Please be polite to the other commenters, authors, and moderators. Keep your comments kind. We encourage comments from people who have tried the recipe, or ones that are informative, helpful, curious, complementary, constructively critical, and/or fun. 
  • We read and moderate your comments before they are published. While we do remove links embedded in the comments, we do not otherwise change the comments we approve. 
  • In your comments, please don’t call people names or make personal attacks on individuals or groups of people. Don’t use vulgarity or obscenities, post illegal activities, send spam, or impersonate anyone else. We will not approve those comments.
  • We will ban users who do not demonstrate a willingness to follow commenting guidelines.

Thank you for being a reader and sharing your interest. We are excited to see where your food journey takes you!
