The following was added to the help topic 1803 under “Posts containing negative comments regarding specific individuals”:
On the other hand, we will have to delete all posts defending other Members or trying to counter an attack on another individual. While we understand that it can be frustrating to see accusations of misbehaviour directed at friends you believe to be honourable, we cannot allow defenses against such accusations to remain up in the Club. The Clubs cannot be a forum for the defense of individuals, because it is inconsistent with the rule that we cannot attack individuals. Also, it is our experience that such defenses frequently backfire by further publicizing the accusation itself.
