Possible Duplicates:
What is our policy on dangerous stuff?

Appropriate reaction to accepted answers containing inaccurate information?

Should answers that offer medically dangerous advice be handled in any special way? For example, one person recently added an answer to my question on 3rd hand tools suggesting that a useful technique is to hold lead solder in your mouth to free up a hand.

I feel like this should be flagged for removal or something.

    \$\begingroup\$ downvote! you can leave a comment explaining it is dangerous, you can downvote, in this case it is even just CW, so no rep lost for him. Can we remove answers that are all unsafe, no. Should we try and make people think that we only leave safe answers? no. all advice needs a grain of salt, please help improve, maybe edit to say it should only be done with lead free. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Jul 26 '11 at 20:17
