Warning: Asking for MRI analaysis

New threads asking for someone to provide details and analysis of their MRI images/reports has been increasing.

This has always been a forum violation. We have explained over and over again why no one on this site can provide any advice based on someone's MRI (or any diagnostic) reports/images.

Yet, this continues.

We are faced with two choices here.

1) Delete any new thread that members are asking for advice based on their diagnostic reports
2) Continue to edit and place our warning about doing this.

I am not sure which method is more efficient. I would like to believe that this problem is because new members do NOT read the forum rules.
Because IF they do READ the rules and still create a thred this way, then that is a major problem.

Id like to ask the member community...

Should we just delete those threads or continue to edit and post our warning message?
