Is it reasonable to sometimes block unresolved allegation forum threads from Google?
Oftentimes forum threads are started based on allegations of wrongdoing that have not been fully researched in advance. That can be part of a natural investigative process because there are suspicions, but not evidence to draw a firm conclusion. Recently there was a situation where allegations were made about an affiliate program that is neither a regular participant in the GPWA forums, nor a sponsor program. After extensive research, we made a decision that discussion in the GPWA forum was very appropriate, but that publication of that thread externally outside of the community here was not appropriate at the time. Should the GPWA (or other forums for that matter) sometimes block unresolved allegation forum threads from Google? Or should those threads always show up in Google search results?  View poll
