I have noticed a couple of bios with disclaimers to the effect that "no answer offered on this site is legal advice - consult an attorney - etc."
I am in the same or similar circumstance as some others with lots of practical experience in the world of patents or patent litigation, but no basis for offering legal advice. Actually, I may be in worse shape that some others because I am a licensed attorney - but my license status is "inactive," meaning that I do not (and am not permitted to) practice law. Ever.
Can we put up a prohibition on legal advice or a universal disclaimer? Failing that, how about a setting to automatically apply a [not legal advice] tag for those of us who may be at risk?
