Do you think Yahoo should add a Miscellaneous category for drug use related Health questions?

Question by spiritwise333: Do you think Yahoo should add a Miscellaneous category for drug use related Health questions?
Alternative Health does not mean how to use / abuse illegal, over the counter or prescription drugs to get high. Alternative health questions should be about acupuncture, homeopathy, herbs, vitamin supplements, shiatsu, hypnosis etc. Would anyone else like to see a Miscellaneous category under Health questions for drug use related questions?
Perhaps Yahoo should consider a better filtering system for drug use questions? Perhaps they should be automatically assigned to the Health – Other category?

I don’t think that’s a good idea. It would not help.

It’s also not a good idea to post suggestions here as it won’t be seen by anyone who can do something about it. This is a category, just like all the others, which is only read by fellow Y!A users. Staff read the Suggestion Board. That’s found under the ABOUT tab at the top of the page.

    YES, I think that Yahoo! Answers needs to add a ‘Miscellaneous’ or ‘Substance Use’ category under Health for drug use related questions. On occasion it may be appropriate to post under Alternative Health if it fits the definition of Alternative Health. Reflexology, Acupuncture, Kinesiology, Shiatsu, Massage, Homoeopathy, Essences, Herbs, Nutrition, Vitamins and minerals and other supplements, as well as Hypnosis, EFT and lots more all fit in this catagory.

    Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) a large and diverse set of systems of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention based on philosophies and techniques other than those used in conventional Western medicine. Such practices may be described as alternative, existing as a body separate from and as a replacement for conventional Western medicine, or complementary, used in addition to conventional Western practice. CAM is characterized by its focus on the whole person as a unique individual, on the energy of the body and its influence on health and disease, on the healing power of nature and the mobilization of the body’s own resources to heal itself, and on the treatment of the underlying causes, not symptoms, of disease.

    EDIT : That is a great idea, A filtering system to have all those question posted in the wrong category go to the correct one.

    Given that laws vary and change, legal/illegal is not a useable criterium. “recreational drugs” would be.
