We try our best to serve our community, and part of the way we do this is by keeping our rules current and reasonable. Unfortunately some things tend to slip through over time. As promised though this rule was revised to hopefully allow more freedom of discussion. Rest assured though we are always open to feedback -- on this rule and any others. We encourage you guys to post if you have any!
The current revised Naming Names rules read as follows:
Creating topics solely to draw negative attention on another player is classified as spam. Since we are in no way associated with Jagex LTD, we're unable to help if you have been scammed/hacked/etc. As a result, topics/posts like these are not productive and will be removed. If you are attempting to alert your community members of a scam, a dangerous glitch, or a current event that affects the community at large then be sure that the focus of your topic is educating people/warning people and not simply finger-wagging or else you risk removal. Whether or not a topic fits that description is up to moderator's discretion.
If your topic or post was removed for naming and shaming and you disagree with it, or if you feel you are the target of harassment, feel free to contact an administrator.
We still had a very real concern about damaging user reputation; yet we wanted to allow people to show their vids/pictures to warn players or discuss serious/recent events that affect the community. The above is a compromise of the two. Ideally what this will prevent are still any "he scammed, she scammed" that might occur, yet still allow users the freedom to discuss the botting epidemic/EoC glitches/etc provided they make the effort to encourage discussion. (And while we always offered the ability to contact the administration if you disagreed with a post removal, or if someone is harassing you, now it's in writing to help spread awareness.)
As mentioned previously, we are definitely open to feedback. We don't want to be more restrictive than what you would find on YT, reddit, or the RSOF...but we are a fansite that aims to promote mature discussion, too! Hopefully you'll find this more up-with-the-times to allow a better experience here on the forums.
