There's also the issue of linkrot. If the content changes or disappears, nobody will know what you are asking about.

comment What are the most up to date consolidated daily health maintenance measures?
@Cawas Our scope has had issues in the past, and we have had the need to explicitly state those items in the faq in order to drive and shape the kind of community we want on this site. Anyway, we shouldn't be using the comments here for this. If you have more to discuss, please find us in the Physical Fitness Chat or bring it to the Physical Fitness Meta.

comment how to choose a gym membership for weight loss?
Instead of telling people to search for "Starting Strength" or "Strong Lifts 5x5," perhaps you can update your answer and explain what they are and why they are beneficial for weight loss?

comment How many liters of water a day [for teenager] keep the doctor away?
Hi @ArchJ, general nutrition question unrelated to exercise is considered off-topic according to our faq. If you can edit and update your question to fit within the context of the site's scope, I'd be happy to reopen the question.
