The admins and moderators are concerned that critics are spoiling the atmosphere of the forum, discouraging members from posting success photos, and driving some members away from the forum?

Please consider this:
The police investigate people daily but it's generally not reported in the news until someone is charged or found guilty. We want to keep heresay accusations off the forum because it can destroy a person's reputation and has negative impacts on the forum in general. However, if someone has been charged or found guilt then that is public knowledge and there is at least enough evidence for authorities to have taken action. So once some issue is in the news then it's fair game for the forum. If you feel someone is guilty of something we think the authorities should be notified so they can determine if there is actual wrong doing before someone is trashed on this forum. H-W is neither supporting or opposing any recent topics or comments, we simply do not want unproven accusations and drama on the forum due to the negative impacts it has on the whole forum and the persons involved if they are innocent.

Therefore we are updating the forum rules as follows:

FORUM RULES & POLICIES (quote paragraph 2, changes underlined)

RECAP: WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED:
(added on 9/30/15)
 - NEGATIVE POSTS IN SUCCESS TOPICS

Effective Today: I have asked the moderators to modify or remove negative posts in success topics, unproven accusations, and to issue a warning or ban as needed to members who make such posts.
