I recently came across this question on SO. Here it is in its entirety:
How do I create a div element in jQuery?
I think it is pretty evident that if someone were to ask this question today they would be thoroughly criticized for lack of research effort and directed to the documentation, even if their question wasn't a duplicate. Instead the question has garnered 200 upvotes and not a single close vote.
I understand that this is from a period earlier on in SO's history, but is every sufficiently broad question that is not a duplicate really welcome on the site?
