A question about wearing a skiing helmet lived in compliance: no-one really opposed the possibly dangerous idea to wearing a skiing helmet while driving a bicycle. I was shocked that this kind of life-critical issue attracted vague-descriptive answers and the op even accepted one. Now the problem is that the future random walkers may think that wearing a skiing helmet while driving a bike is totally safe. The odds are against them because it not mean for it. I have tried to analyze the topic a bit deeper and my rough analysis shows that it is probably more dangerous to wear skiing helmet to a bicycle helmet while driving a bike, more here. I haven't yet found a scientific research about the issue so I cannot verify it. But during this waiting time I want to ask whether SO is responsible for any suicide-wise or dangerous threads? And should mods take more active roles to notify users of them? And how should users act when they notice something like that? Is flagging enough?
I hope this example will create some discussion because compliance is no sign of truth in life-critical issues! Even if SO takes no responsibility of the thread, I am still interested to know how to attack threads that may contain false information that may endanger lives? I do hope that this idea is far-fetched and nothing like that will happen.
