| | No more medical advice in Open Mike
I know that a lot of personal advice threads in Open Mike are deleted for various reasons, like they're "too serious" for WI. I feel that if those types of threads are not allowed, then medical advice ones should definitely not be allowed.
Giving out medical advice (I'm sure most of us here aren't doctors...) is much more dangerous than giving out advice for personal situations. A person could get seriously sick/make their injury a lot worse if they follow the advice of some of our members, who are not doctors.
So I'm suggesting that these types of threads are not allowed either, if the personal advice ones are not allowed. I don't see why they are allowed when the personal advice threads are allowed.
(By the way, I'm talking about someone making a thread like "I hurt my leg really badly doing something today, what should I do?" Not threads saying "Oh, I can give out medical advice! Post your problems here." I've never seen one of those, haha)
