To what questions can answers be accepted which basically consist of citations and the link to it? Lately we have quite some of these anwers and I am split between "at least this is an answer" and "is this a proper answer".
The help center on references states:
Do not copy the complete text of external sources; instead, use their words and ideas to support your own. And always give proper credit to the author and site where you found the text, including a direct link to it.
While giving proper credit is not an issue, I see the part "use their words a nd ideas to support your own" is not fulfilled. To better understand what kind of answers I'm referring to see e.g. the answers here, here or here.
What do you think about this? Is this an issue or is this ok?
