It is forbidden to say that someone possesses a negative character trait. For example, it is forbidden to say that an individual is quick-tempered, argumentative, stingy, arrogant, etc.To say that someone is of bad character is forbidden as it is a derogatory statement. However, to indicate that someone is of average character (for example, that he does not overlook the wrong done to him) – while not complimentary – is also not derogatory and may be permissible. In common situations where the term “average” has negative connotations; such a statement would also constitute loshon hora.On the basis of the principle of relative statements discussed previously (Day 4), the claim that a person known for his piety is, in actuality, no better than average, is certainly loshon hora.
