21 Please don't discuss medical issues including weight loss

Some of the links in the above posting guideline are out-of-date / no longer in existence. Do you want a volunteer (me) to vet the list contents and perhaps recommend replacements/alternatives? They majority seem to link to some form of web archive for some reason even if the sites themselves are still there and working.

hon: health on the net is a kind of "kite mark" for health websites

All existing links updated to new addresses and secure https:// sites, BBC Health & NHS Direct sites are gone unfortunately.

Please check links before updating Posting Guideline. I've checked but they need QA.

I avoided the temptation of adding COVID-19 links here as it already has its own forum but if you want links here, consider it done.
