Curious about Health Code policy

In another thread, the following statement was issued by the Chowhound team:

"We actually have a site policy of not discussing Health Code violations, Health Department closings and related issues. We wanted to mention that before people got into any details about the situation here. Thanks."

I can understand the idea of not having malicious posters spread potentially vicious rumors about getting sick in a restaurant in order to dissuade other customers, but if a well-known restaurant is shut down by the health department, than there is factual documentation by a licensed, government agency for SOME reason and could that not be worthy of discussions by and for Chow members?
