What do we think of answers like this? On other SE sites I am active on, answers that a purely made up of quotes from elsewhere (even when attributed) are generally frowned upon. There is a discussion of this issue on the SO meta that shows that while such answers are valid, they are not encouraged.
My view is that unless the source is very obscure, then chances are someone who is genuinely asking a question has probably already read that quote in their search for an answer and found it unsatisfactory. I would think we want experts to provide answers from their own expertise rather than being a google-it-for-you service.
What should the view on this type of answer be on this site?
