We need to welcome new posters to the board and provide them with balanced information.... as much as is possible. If posters receive replies which cause fear, this may be very bad for their mental health.... and may have serious consequences.

The way I see it, there are two ways to provide balanced information:

1. Each poster posts balanced information.

2. Multiple posters post one-sided information from multiple sides. Taken as a whole, the information they provide will be balanced.

Replies that cause fear may be considered bad since fear may be considered bad. OTOH, posters who already feel afraid may feel supported if their fears are validated.
