KitchenParty is a self-moderating community, which means that we rely on members like you to keep our network safe and true to our mission and vision. One important way that you can help is by reporting website abuse. What is abuse?
Is reported content always removed?
Our team monitors all reported abuse. If we suspect that a member is intentionally over-reporting or falsely reporting abuse, we will take action. What kind of content should I report?
We've compiled a list of examples to help you understand the situations in which a profile or a message may be considered abusive. Use this list for guidance, but please remember that each individual case is different. Your own judgement is the best measure. It's important to take context, cultural norms, personal communication style, language barriers, and other factors into consideration when choosing whether to report a specific piece of content.Profiles
Especially in the case of profiles, KitchenParty is careful to protect members' freedom of expression. This is a community value, and it's also a matter of safety. The more honest members are about themselves, the more educated other members are when making decisions.

KitchenParty tracks reports of abusive messages so that we can identify spammers and others who habitually misuse the messaging system. If you receive an inappropriate message from someone you know, or as part of an ongoing issue, do not report it as abuse. Instead, please contact us with a link to the profile of the other member and a brief explanation of the issue. That way, our team can understand the specifics of your situation and take appropriate action.
