Calorie-Count has a group of volunteers who act as moderators and can remove threads or get in touch with members who disobey the sites posting guidelines. The moderators keep an eye out for offensive language, spam, or posts that encourage anorexia, bulimia or other eating disorders. The volunteers can check with the site's experts if they have questions about what is suitable content.
