Some people choose to publicly discuss mental health issues or rehab. Some people do not
publicly disclose whatever issues they are having. Or just aren't having any. It is completely unfair to gossip and talk about such very
personal things, especially considering the huge social stigma mental illness and insanity of every kind has. It's also unfair to spread rumors or disclose confidential information that you do
know if that person hasn't publicly disclosed it themselves.
And I don't imagine we can put a sign saying "Only discuss the insanity of real people if they've publicly admitted to being insane, or were found insane by a court of law." and expect the editors to respect that.
is not a papparazzi tabloid, nor does insanity of real people have boo to do with the site mission. If a creator/author/director has publicly disclosed a mental condition and it had a noticeable effect on their works
, then it can be discussed under the heading of their works.
And yes, mental illnesses are the actual medical conditions that people call "insanity." They're the same thing.
