      Advice is what it is. Whether you get it here or not, it's your responsibility to consider the source.

    Wow, I couldn't imagine using any of these places for anything important. How on earth do you evaluate the source and the value of the information.

    Well lets see there's my family doctor of 25 years, my dentist of 5 years. Lots of friends and family.

    Guess I'm lucky to have a very good support network, that I can rely on. We've stayed in this community because of the wonderful people that we see every day, that we help and that help us.

    Advice is very subjective.  I wouldn't trust the internet with serious life issues, but some of the advice could point you in the right direction.

    I wouldn't rely on this forum for any serious answers to your questions. I think it's more social here than anything else.

    You'll get some bad advice with any type of website like Yahoo Answers or other sites where anyone can post an answer. Some people just think they know more than they actually do. That's why I never solely rely on info from these places.
