Filtering REAL recipe submissions from junk

when i first came to the "new" chow site, i saw how they added a feature where it enables users to submit their own recipes.... my very first thought was "i wonder if they're going to filter the submissions"

i got my answer today:

this "recipe" is an example of crap that got submitted b/c there is no way of reviewing the submissions before they get posted.

so tell me CHOW - you all gonna fix this? or is there a way of preventing rubbish like this from showing up?

  1. There are some moderation tools with recipes, but we're having some technical difficulties with them at the moment -- we'll get that removed as soon as they're fixed.

    1. It's been removed. We do have recipe moderation, just ironing out the problems.
