Never mind my comment. I just tried posting to one of the others, and yes i see a $5 fee. It really would be nice if they set it up as a choice of getting a professional answer only if paying, but getting other feedback if not. I haven't noticed the professional answers to necessarily be worth the $5 since some of very general. I guess I just would love the best of both worlds!
I'd still like the best of both worlds, an option to post to a doc or an option to post to only others. If the few is just a few dollars than this forum in particular I think could use some medical input. By a few dollars I mean something less than $8. Anything more is too much for the some of the vague answers given (even when neccessary due to the format and limited information.) However, choice isn't up to us anyway.
