Sometimes we get questions that either indicate or suggest that the author is seeking advice regarding a matter of high Halachic or medical states, for example:
Determining whether a particular relationship would constitute adultery.
Deciding whether a particular career move would justify setting Shabbat restrictions aside.
Making end-of-life healthcare decisions.
Dealing with mental health issues.
Frequently, these questions are closed as off-topic because they are asking Mi Yodeya to provide personal advice as a rabbi (or healthcare professional) would. In other cases, questions like these may be closed, like any other question, for any of the other reasons that we consider a post to be not a good fit for this Q&A community.
In cases like this, should the Q&A and topicality rules be set aside, so that community members can provide information and advice? Maybe someone will provide advice that could save someone from grave spiritual or physical consequences. Should we let rules stand in the way of such an opportunity to help?
