@Miller,
The answer to this question is yes. There is no rule against asking and answering medical or legal questions. The information on these sites cannot be construed as medical or legal advice and that is why it is in the TOS that we do not provide medical advice but there is absolutely no reason for us to try to stop users from giving opinion or information and this is currently an area of moderation policy that needs to improve.

When it spills over into medical advice (and really, if you're in the field, you should know the difference between the stuff you can't charge for, and the stuff where you can), it's against the TOS.


This is simply incorrect, it is NOT against the TOS. The TOS clause prohibits users from TAKING advice here as professional medical or legal advice and establishes all opinions given as informational only, it does not and should not seek to restrict people's posts. It is ONLY a caveat to cover the site for legal liability and if moderators are going around telling people to stop posting on these threads these mods are doing so in error.

In the Boston area( USA), many of the Harvard-trained MDs correspond with their patients over the internet. It's fast and it's reliable. If the patient presents with a serious problem, referral is made to an ER.

Hopefully they only do that for patients who have received a physical in the last year.

Hopefully they have insurance.

I think happiness is a contest that we are our own judge as to who is the winner. A la William James (we smile then we are happy) "acting" happy is virtually the same as "being" happy.

If you can't stop smiling, does it mean you're happy or does it mean your facial muscles are frozen because of excess botox? Very Happy

All my posts get marked down. Probably because I'm a jerk.
