The Parenting site has variable quality moderation on questions seeking medical advice or on answers providing medical advice. Here are some examples:
Clearly seeks medical advice, with an answer clearly providing medical advice. The question would require considerable re-writing to make it on-topic.
Seeks medical advice but was closed as being a duplicate.
Seeks medical advice, but spawned a meta question about whether non-medical medical advice was allowed. In other words, can we allow people to post bullshit because we know that's not medical advice. Should home remedy "medical questions" be allowed?
This is the type of question that causes problems. "Is it something I should be worried about" can only be answered with "we can't give medical advice. See a doctor if you have any concerns". Some people would add "here's what the English National Health Service / US Centre for disease control / etc say about that illness".
That question was mentioned in a site-self-evaluation and people thought it was a good question - valuable to the site.
I bring these examples to the main meta site because I'm not having any luck on the child site and I'd appreciate some feedback about whether my concerns are valid or not.
