:::The main content problem is that it violates our policy at [[WP:TPOC]]. This has been explained to you before. Here is an example of the kind of comment removal that this page encourages:[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Science&diff=next&oldid=966762958] On what planet is that "medical advice"? --[[User:Guy Macon|Guy Macon]] ([[User talk:Guy Macon|talk]]) 06:01, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
:::::Actually, I would call that medical advice, at least borderline. And (hate to say it) your constitutional law needs work. [[User:EEng#s|<b style="color: red;">E</b>]][[User talk:EEng#s|<b style="color: blue;">Eng</b>]] 11:50, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
::::::I tend to agree. It's borderline, but the first paragraph of that removed answer does offer what could be construed as advice for treating or preventing a communicable illness. Also, the answer rather goes off on a tangent and fails to actually answer the specific question as asked. —[[User:Ilmari Karonen|Ilmari Karonen]] <small>([[User talk:Ilmari Karonen|talk]])</small> 15:44, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
::::Finally an example.....so in response to that edit you demoted this page? So really as per [[WP:POLCON]] this should be reviewed and talked about as now is happening.--<span style="font-weight:bold;color:darkblue">[[User_talk:Moxy|Moxy]]</span> <span style="color:red">🍁</span> 06:13, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
:::::Nobody "demoted" the page. It was never "promoted" to a policy in the first place. What part of "Adding the <nowiki>{{policy}}</nowiki> template to a page without the required consensus does not mean the page is policy"[https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:PROPOSAL] are you having trouble understanding? --[[User:Guy Macon|Guy Macon]] ([[User talk:Guy Macon|talk]]) 06:30, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
