A question regarding summarization was asked today, and after a quick google search, I found that the question was taken from several brain dump sites, including testking and How2Pass.
I personally would take the position that all questions having anything to do with brain-dumps, directly or indirectly, should be banned, as it will bring the search results for the site into the same community as the dump sites - however, the argument could be made that as long as the person asking shows a reasonable amount of effort in understanding the logic behind the question and the concepts it covers, it might be okay.
I want to be clear - if someone posts questions asking for brain dumps, obviously those questions should be closed. I'm speaking more specifically about subtle things like the question I linked to - I didn't know it was a brain dump question until I acted on a hunch and googled it.
What is the NE-SE community stance on questions like that? Permissible, or definitely not?
