A lot of questions are asked on Biology SE about species identification. In today's times it has become very easy to right click on the image and an option of 'search using google lens' appears. The google lens shows various species similar to the one in picture. It becomes very easy for anyone to just write or rather guess one of those species in the answer with some information, say from Wikipedia.
Similarly there are various apps available too for identification. Eg. PictureThis for plant identification.
All these have made this very easier. Now even a layman who is not at all related to biology can use these and write an answer. And I have used these(google lens as well as the apps) for my house plant identification and they were accurate.
Earlier, when the question used to appear in Biology SE, people used to answer based on their knowledge, or they used to actually search for that species based on their knowledge, which required hardwork also.
But now literally anyone can do this and this doesn't even require hardwork.
Now my question is that is this right to use these modalities for identification? If yes, isn't this an injustice for someone who has a knowledge of these without the help of google lens?
Also now the OP too can find these species with the similar apps and lens, then why ask?
