You can post things about others but it would be unfair to post anything that could identify them to others who might coincidentally know that person and recognise them from something about your description. So you have to be very careful as MN is a very popular site and many people read it but don't post replies and sometimes journalists will take a thread from MN and make an article about it on their newspaper's site gaining an even larger audience.

Just preface it with 'Asking for a friend'
Nobody believes that but provided you aren't doxxing anyone it's ok.
