With an increasing number of HCPs, podiatrists, doctors, specialists and other professionals using the site, we were considering changing one of the forum rules to allow such professionals to use the site - and where normally they'd break the rules if they did offer advice, instead we would leave it as long as in the user's signature, there is a message saying: That way, members can have discussions with assumed professionals. The problem we see is that we have no way of checking (anyone can forge a certificate these days!), so would want it to be clear in the signature that there word shouldn't be taken for granted. What do forum members think? Please leave a comment or vote above! It'd be great if you could leave a reason for your vote (especially if you think it's a bad idea).
