It is easy to observe a person and notice behavior traits that give us warning signs to rather avoid that individual. Being homeless is NOT a warning flag.
It would be more appropriate to hear from someone who actually came in direct contact with a person about whom then could be issued a "heads up".
About a week ago we were hiking a section of the Long Trail. My son always hikes ahead because he is faster but knows to wait at intersections and shelters. When we got to Birch Glen shelter my son was waiting for us and said that there was an odd hiker who kept only talking to himself. The hiker left before we got there.
I was slightly worried but we continued on to Cowled shelter. At Cowles we told two hikers about the experience and the said the same person walked through about an hour ago and that indeed he was a bit disturbed.
So there you have it. The person was not homeless and it mattered very little whether he was.
So in situations like that or perhaps more severe, posting on a message board describing the peculiar behavior traits and let people be aware.
OTOH a behavior of a person who happens to be homeless could be totally pleasant and jovial.
Putting a label of being a homeless in a warning post and not describing what exact behavior is worrisome is a wrong way to do this.
Even if you say you are not judgmental it doesn't make it so.
