Learn what NOT to write about on this site

Edited by Anonymous, Lynn, Eng, Rob and 1 other

All authors please be respectful of our guidelines when choosing your wiki topics. We do not allow wikis on the topics listed below EVEN IF THEY ARE INTENDED TO HELP SOMEONE. The reason is that if you write on a topic to help someone get off drugs, through experience we have learned it will encourage people to write other drug related wikis, which inevitably lead to undesirable content which is not beneficial to hurtful. One example we had: ASPIRIN -> PAIN KILLERS -> SUICIDE HELP (GOOD) -> SUICIDE METHODS (BAD) -> PEOPLE ADVISING ONE ANOTHER ON HOW TO KILL THEMSELVES (VERY BAD)
