I propose a new rule for questions that are tagged halal-haram: If you are asking if something is forbidden (or permissible), you have to indicate some reason for why you think that may or may not be the case. We know that in all things other than worship, the principle is "permissible unless indicated otherwise." If you have a reason to suspect that something is indicated impermissible, write down that reason.
This is not a binary thing - the more substantive material you have to suspect the permissibility or impermissibility of something, the stronger your question. For example, something from the texts is great. If not, something from a scholar. A widespread belief in some area may also fly. But "I heard from someone" is most likely not going to cut it.
