The Rules - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

02-17-2011, 10:01 PM
Victim Friendly

Websleuths is a victim friendly forum. Sleuthing family members that are not suspected of being involved in the crime or disappearance is not allowed. Don't make random accusations or post personal information (even if it is public) like parking tickets, address, or first and last names of all their relatives and their neighbors. Also, never "bash" or attack them, or accuse them of involvement. However that does not mean that family members cannot come into discussion as the facts and issues of the case are discussed.

We do not blame victims at WS. Please, be respectful at all times to the suffering of the lost/missing and the dead, as well as to their families and communities.
