Take Advice With Caution

Although I have only been posting on this forum for a few months, I have noticed many things that all should be aware of while using htis site.
 
First, there are many attorneys, or people claiming to be attorneys on this site that give wrong/bad advice.  Even if the advice comes from a "moderator" on this forum, it is not necessarily correct.  
 
Second, there are non-attorneys that give wrong/bad advice.
 
Please take all advice with caution.  You should always consult a REGISTERED patent attorney, preferably one that practices with a reputable firm, to ensure sound legal advice.  Also, there is no supplement for using the MPEP that is published online at uspto.gov.

That's all good advice.
 
People just about invariably do correct others, though, when they are wrong, on this site.

Remember, none of what's posted here is "advice", but for informational purposes only.

Just to perhaps clarify Mr. Orange's pithy comment, one may nor may not be an attorney to be licensed to practice before the PTO.  Consulting someone licensed to practice with the PTO is always good advice.  Choosing someone who's reputable is, likewise, a good idea.  (Why choose someone with poor reputation?)  Having said that, there are some issues with which a non-attorney cannot deal.  Licensing is just one example, but I'm sure others can add to that.
