OK, this is perhaps a provocative question. But looking at this question I think it is a fair one. The question "How many people's DNA were involved in the compilation of the reference human genome?" is reasonable, and so is the answer.
However, the answer is taken more-or-less verbatim from wikipedia. In this situation, why didn't the questioner just look at wikipedia? If we go down this route, SE Biology simply becomes an online forum where we get others to do research for us rather than doing it ourselves.
Shouldn't SE Biology be about asking questions and giving answers which can't be found by a quick google, but can be clearly and concisely answered (with citations where appropriate) by experts?
Please don't get me wrong, this is not a criticism of the users in the above question, simply I am trying to understand what our purpose is.
